Weight loss encouragement is something that everyone needs during difficult times on their journey toward a slimmer and healthier body. It's so easy to become discouraged and to give up just before a great weight loss victory.
Here are 6 of my favorite encouragements to help keep on the weight loss track:
Encouragement Tip #1
Don't give up to quickly. The weight loss process gets better as you go! If you have been overweight and inactive for a long time, everything you do may seem difficult especially exercise. Be encouraged, it won't be long before you will even look forward to exercise.
Encouragement Tip #2
Don't get in a hurry. Healthy and lasting weight loss takes time. Keep in mind that for each day you exercise and eat properly, you have made progress. You may not be able to see it immediately, but you will clearly see the results as time goes on.
Encouragement Tip #3
If your exercise routine seems difficult, be glad. The whole idea behind exercise is that you push your body to do a little more than it's comfortable with and it responds by making you more physically fit. And as you become stronger, the exercises will become easier and more pleasurable. Be encouraged, it will get better!
Encouragement Tip #4
Try this. After you have lost your first (or next) 10 pounds, buy a 10-pound container of shortening. Carry that fat around for a whole day and see how happy you get when you realize that you don't have don't have to carry that weight around on your body any more.
Encouragement Tip #5
Daily record the positive changes in the way you feel and move. After a month or so of eating and exercising right, you can look back at the way you were at the beginning, and be encouraged by how much you have improved.
