Note Down your starting measurements and weight
Most if not all of us dislike scale, however it is necessary for your journey. Get on the scale and note down your weight, and do this once every week or month. Do not do this every day. If you do not like to know your number, ask somebody else for this such as your nearest friend or your partner. Moreover measure your neck, arm, chest, hips, thighs, and waist and note them separately. After some weeks, scale will remain but inches will move, so take these measurements after every 6 to 8 weeks. Don’t let occasional weight gains or no loss times get you down. Utilize this time as motivation, such as what you can do differently? Did you overindulge? Did you add another exercise? Analyze and then move on.
Take Before Photos
It isn’t just fun taking before photo. But, it does give you a constant inspiration. Stick one to your refrigerator and a copy inside your pantry. As soon as you get to your weight loss goal, watching the difference that you achieved from all that hard work at gym, is indescribable.
When you lack self-control, join weigh loss program to let you be accountable. Having receptionist weigh you once in a week and paying for it will let you keep honest. Additionally, you will get to meet the others who are struggling for same cause.
Don’t indulge yourself in unhealthy, addictive and toxic foods. Never believe in a mantra “eat whatever you want” sold by many weight loss centers. Although they push veggies and fruits they aren’t zero points. An occasional junk or fast food trip can let you slip the slope which ends in a failure.
