Try and create an environment that will excite you. This
means if you’re room isn’t clean, clean it. After you’ve cleaned your room,
you’ll look at it differently. Maybe you’ll even want to remodel or rearrange it
so it looks different. This gives yourself excitement because your room looks
new to you and you’ll want to do new things.
Have someone that you trust know about your weight loss
goal. Make sure that they’re not the type to fuss with you or bother
you about it. Pressure isn’t a good thing at all. Try someone like a parent,
sister, brother, or close friend. They can work out with you at times. If you
don’t have anyone like that find other ways to motivate yourself.
Try techniques that will help you reach your goal. For
example, tape a motivating picture on your wall. You can put a picture of
someone in a Before and After picture. Or maybe type out rules that only you
Watch motivating videos, shows, etc. I used to watch ‘I Used
To Be Fat’ on MTV. That show is very encouraging. It’s about teenagers who want
to change their physical appearances before going off to college. Watch before
and after videos. If you’re going to sit on the couch and watch tv, then at
least watch something that will help you later on.
Don’t compare yourself to others. When you look at your fit
friends and siblings don’t sit there wishing and dreaming that you had their
body, go and get it yourself.
When you see people eating junk food and crap, just make sure you’re
not eating it with them. Eat something like it but not high in fat,
maybe something from Subway or Salad Works, this is so if people don’t know
about your plan to lose weight they won’t come up questioning, ” Are you on a
diet?” “Are you trying to lose weight?” That can feel embarrassing and lead you
to eat the way you did before.
Drink water a lot. Do not drink soda, juice, or anything
else that is high in calories or sugar. We know you’ve heard this before but,
water keeps you hydrated. This will help your skin become acne free. Water
washes toxins and fat out of your body. This doesn’t mean if you drink water
you’ll have lost a lot of pounds by the end of the week. No. You’ll need to eat
right and drink it everyday. Drink about 8 glasses of water daily.
Learn new exercises. Make sure you exercise everyday. We
know it can be hard sometimes, but we need to suck it up and work as hard as we
can. Guys, you may work out but for the majority if you play video games and
stuff, make sure it’s an exercising game like Wii Fit or something like that. So
pause your Zelda game and work out.
Reward yourself. After a hard working month of eating right,
drinking nothing but water, and working out, buy yourself a new outfit, or maybe
celebrate by getting some Non Fat Frozen Yogurt. Go to a little nice unique
boutique or a cool store that you would never be able to shop in because of the
size clothes they sell. Get a souvenir like a bag, or something. That way, you
can have something to work for. Or if you’ve ever had a shirt that you loved but
grew out of it, don’t throw it away, keep it, hang it on you’re wall or keep it
close by, this can motivate you to lose weight because you probably want to see
how you would look in that cute shirt or those cool pants after you shred those
pounds off. Have things to look forward to.
You won’t stay motivated if you never have any excitement.
So get out there buy workout videos, go out to the gym, track your fitness, keep
a calorie book to count your calories for every meal, etc.
