Weight Loss Tips

ID-10097302

Losing weight isn’t easy. But over the years of coaching people towards their weight loss goals, the biggest barrier to weight loss is not the fat or sugar…

…it is the motivation!

It is hard to stay motivated. There’s a great article in HuffingtonPost this week on weight loss tips. Here are my favorite tips from it-the ones that deal with motivation!

Weight Loss Motivation

1. Set a small, specific goal. Stick it on the fridge or your bathroom mirror.

2. Use your scale as a gauge to track your progress and not as a body-shaming device

3. Take before and after pictures. You won’t believe how much real proof motivates.

4. Buy a new outfit that you want to rock. Hang it where you can see it daily for a visual reminder to stick to your goals. Or reward your small wins with new workout gear!

5. Focus only on losing the next two pounds. Whether you want to lose 10 pounds or 100 pounds, focusing on micro-goals can keep you from feeling overwhelmed. Think two pounds at a time.

These are tips I deem particularly valuable as we all approach our New Year’s resolutions. What do you find helpful? Leave a comment.

    Great advice! I normally have a few days of extremely “clean” eating (with no processed foods) just to reset my palate after an indulgent few days. I have a week away with my family coming up which I know will be quite extravagant and I was actually considering a more extreme detox afterwards, but I think I might give it a miss now. Your article makes perfect sense, I follow a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy myself more when I indulge, so long as I go back to that healthy lifestyle after there’s not much I need to change, thanks!

    Great advice! I personally like using the ‘averages’ rule with my scale – I actually weigh whatever the average of the past 3 days is. That way there’s always steady progress 🙂
