If this has proven to be the case for you, then you are going to want to make sure you are taking a few moments to review the following tips for getting your weight loss journey started.

Focus on the positive energy that will come your way. So many people will cheer you on, so many people will be happy for you. You may even share your story and inspire countless others to start their weight loss journey, too.

#1. Make A Simple Plan

Sure, you might strive to one day be able to do a hundred sit-ups in one day, but you need to consider if something that life is workable at the moment. If you are just getting started, you might find that you need to take it slow. Make a plan that is a little easier to start with.

For example, your plan might comprise:

  • One walk around the block each day 
  • Ten sit-ups
  • Jogging in place for five minutes
  • Swim five laps around the pool

You get the idea. Start small and as those goals become easier and easier for you, you realise that you are ready to kick it up a notch.

#2. Take It One Day At A Time

When you start your weight loss journey, instead of focusing on an entire week of exercise and dieting plans, you will want to simply focus on today. Think only of today and work on getting through that. You will then do the same thing tomorrow.

By focusing your energy one day at a time, you find that it is a lot easier to get through to your major goal. As well, when you begin the journal, be sure to log in, write or make your videos as much as possible. Set a minimum requirement for yourself, too. You can easily balance the process with your lifestyle once keeping a record has become a habit.

#3. Find A Friend To Motivate You

There is nothing worse than not having anyone or anything motivate you. If you want to make sure that you are giving yourself the best shot at success, you will want to find a friend that is willing and able to motivate you and help with your weight loss journey.

Ask your friend to work out with you, plan super healthy meals with you, or simply talk about your day and encourage you to keep going.

Also, by having a friend by your side, you will feel somewhat accountable to someone other than just yourself. That alone might be what will make all the difference to you. With all of those tips in mind, you will be well on your way to your goal weight before you know it.

However, some general tips to avoid weight loss failure include staying motivated, setting realistic goals, and tracking your progress. Additionally, be sure to consult with a healthcare professional before beginning any weight loss journey to ensure safety and success.

FAQ

IN WHAT ORDER DOES A WOMAN LOSE WEIGHT?

Mostly, losing weight is an internal process. You will first lose hard fat that surrounds your organs like liver, kidneys and then you will start to lose soft fat like waistline and thigh fat. The fat loss from around the organs makes you leaner and stronger.

IS FASTING GOOD FOR WEIGHT LOSS?

Fasting for a certain number of hours each day or eating just one meal a couple days a week can help your body burn fat. And scientific evidence points to some health benefits, as well.

HOW MUCH WATER SHOULD I DRINK TO LOSE WEIGHT?

Drinking at least 64 ounces (eight cups) of water every day may help with weight loss. Downing liquid is not the only way to meet this goal. About 20 percent of your hydration needs can be met through your diet, says Caroline Susie, RDN, a national spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

IS WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY DIFFICULT?

Some people can lose weight easily on their own through simple diet and exercise. But many popular weight loss techniques don't work. Cleanses, fad diets, and crash diets don't help most people lose weight in the long-term. In fact, most people will regain about 30—35 percent of the weight they've lost after one year.
