Have you tried every fad diet, followed every weight loss tip, done the most intense of exercise but have not lost any weight?
If you answered yes to the above question, then you are in the situation of most obese people. They have followed almost every other miracle weight loss tip, but nothing seems to happen to their bodies. They are still fat!
Your decision to lose weight is not going to please everyone(that is a fact!). The question is, "how are you going to ignore their nasty comments and stick to your weight loss goals?"
1. Believe in yourself
"A firm belief in yourself is all that is needed to alter your life. No one except you alone can change you life", M. K. Soni.
Yeah. That is where it starts from, without believing in yourself that you can burn the excess body fat, there is no way you are going to see any progress. It is time to ignore peoples' criticisms and believe you can make it.
You need to be self-confident and motivated about your weight goals.
Always remember that if you do not believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you.
2. Hang out with people who share in your goals You need to be careful about those you hang out with. Some people would not want you to attain your ideal weight and look good.
They always wish you will remain "the fat girl". Always associate yourself with positive-minded people, who are ready to support you. It is also advisable to join online support groups.
3. Stick to your plan
Do you have a journal? Does your plan have realistic goals?
For sustainable weight loss, you need to stick to your a weight loss plan. It should be well-organised and must include diet and exercise.
You should also make small and significant changes in your lifestyle.
Do not start out thinking you can lose 100lbs in a week(unless it is a miracle).
4. Be prepared for anything
Your weight loss should not be a nine days' wonder. It should improve your lifestyle forever. Be ready to eat less of your favourite hamburgers and pizza. You should also know that you have to quit being lazy and exercise a lot.
Wouldn't it be very painful if you regain all the weight you lost? It is time to stop thinking and take action NOW!
