3 Tips For Convincing Yourself To Lose Weight
If you have been struggling with your weight for a long time, you might already know that there is no better time than now to get started on your weight loss journey.
Of course, for some women, this is a task that is easier to talk about than to actually accomplish. This is usually because they have a hard time truly convincing themselves that it is time to get started.
Take a moment to review the following three tips so that you will be well on your way to convincing yourself in no time at all.
#1. Find Inspiration
For some women, other women with body sizes or shapes that they would like to realistically become can be a great motivation.
All you need to do is to find a few shining examples in past pictures of yourself, pictures of your friends or family, or even pictures of women in the magazines. Keep these pictures hanging on your refrigerator, on your bathroom mirror, and on your dresser.
You might even want to keep at least one of these photos on the sun visor in your vehicle. After all, you might need a little extra motivation there in order to stop you from going through the local fast food drive-through.
#2. Get Your Family Involved
Some women seem to have no problem letting themselves down, but when it comes to their loved ones – there is no room for error. If this sounds like you, then you might want to have a good talk with your spouse and your kids, if they are at an age of understanding what weight loss and healthy eating is all about.
Ask them to be supportive, to never make fun of you, and to be people that you can be accountable to. For example, your family can help by:
- Asking how your meal planning is going
- Ask every week or two how far you have come towards your goal
- Remind you that those snacks you are craving are bad for you
- Cheer you on when you are feeling defeated
By doing those simple things, your family will be helping you to convince yourself that now is the time to finally have a weight loss plan and stick with it.

#3. Buy New Clothes
Sure, you can motivate yourself by treating yourself to a new outfit as you lose weight.
But already having clothes that you do not fit into, but want to, might just be what you need to stay motivated. This is especially true if you are someone that cannot stand wasting money.
Tip To Remember
With all of those things in mind, you should have no problem making sure that you are finally convincing yourself that now is the time to finally lose all of the extra weight that you have been carrying around for too long.
