Only 8% of people are always successful in achieving their resolutions, and 3 of 4 people almost never succeed. It is no secret that a firm decision to lose weight is difficult to make. But it is even more difficult to follow this decision. The right start can be a great help and lead to amazing results. We have prepared some tips that will make your path easier and more successful on weight loss.
1. Motivate yourself properly.
What usually motivates you? Do you visualize a perfectly shaped version of yourself or dream about ideal results? We are sorry to upset you, but scientists consider this method ineffective. When we do not take into account possible mistakes and setbacks, we give up easier when trying to meet obstacles.
So how should you visualize the desired results with the maximum effectiveness? Follow these instructions:
- Think about the benefits
- Analyze the obstacles
This method helps you find out what you really want, but also gets you prepared for difficulties. And if you know about them from the start, it will give you long-term motivation to lose weight.
2. Analyze your previous tries (if any).
If this is not the first time that you’ve decided to lose weight, it will be good to analyze your experience. Ask yourself why you failed before. Here is a short list of possible reasons why most tries are not successful:
- Unrealistic goals or no goals
- Crash dieting
- Lack of meal and exercise planning
- Waiting for visible results in a short-term period
- Wrong diet
- Add your reasons here
This step will help you take into account and avoid previous mistakes.
