Setting a weight loss goal is the first step you take towards your fitness but reaching it is another ball game altogether. Many a times, you will want to give up or be tempted to cheat on your diet which can ruin all the hard work you’ve put in. In order to stick to your plan, here are six useful tips which will help you reach your goal.
Work out in the morning
If you do it in the morning, you won’t be trying to find excuses to get out of it later in the day when you’re tired and worn out. You also will feel more energetic and fresh if you work out in the morning. All you have to do is get yourself out of bed on time. You can save time by packing your gym bag in the night itself.
Make your exercise enjoyable
If you like to go for walks do that, add some resistance with hand weights and pick up the pace too. Even ask friends to get involved with you, you’ll find having a partner helps a lot and will encourage you to work harder. Don’t take up a workout which does not interest you as you are likely to make excuses and not do it and also find it cumbersome to do it every day.
Don’t weigh yourself every day
You’ll feel disheartened when the scales don’t change or even go up, which it can throughout the day. So, weigh yourself only after 15 days or so. Better, work hard and let others notice the change in you. It is always good to hear from friends that you’ve lost weight. You can also take out an old pair of jeans and check if you fit into them after a few months of your workout.
Don’t fall for the latest fad diet
Fad diets can look tempting with their large claims in a short time but remember, they will do a lot of harm to your health. They’ll inevitably fail and you’ll find yourself putting on all of the weight again. Small changes to your diet and lifestyle will make the big difference in the future.
Prepare and plan your meals in advance
It might be hard to know what you’re going to feel like for tea next Tuesday but if you make a plan in advance and get the foods you need for it you’re more likely to stick to it. Get up in the morning an extra five minutes early to prepare a healthy and nutritious lunch as opposed to being stuck in the café eating a calorific sandwich or pasta filled with lots of creamy sauces.
Don’t let tough times get you down
We all know that it’s going to be tough, but if you spend 10 seconds envisaging where you want to be you’ll find the strength to carry on and get better. Don’t forget to look back on how far you’ve come already. It’s definitely something you’ll want to celebrate. Put up inspirational quotes which will help you get back on track when your confidence wavers. Even take help from loved ones to not let you quit unless you reach your goal.
