#2. Be Accountable And Realistic

You need to always make sure you are accountable for your own actions.

If you really want to lose the weight, you will hold yourself accountable for the decisions you make in your day-to-day life. It's strongly suggested you keep a food journal on pen and paper or use a website or app. They have all been proven effective.

Another important factor in weight loss is to have a plan. You can do a variety of different things to bring your plan to reality, but if you go into it with no actual idea on how you are going to work it, the odds are you will lose motivation.

Here are some tips to help you formulate a plan that will work:

  • Write it down. Just by writing it down, you are making a promise to yourself that you are going to follow through.
  • Make a meal plan and stick to it.
  • Work on an exercise plan that will help you see results.

#4. Be Patient And Never Give Up

The last thing you need to keep in mind is you will not see results overnight. Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day. Anyone who wants to lose weight has to work hard and never give up. If you have been working out and eating right and don’t see results in the first week, do not give up.

Majority of people need regular support and positive feedback to stay motivated. Many people also find it helpful to find a weight loss buddy. You can work out together, hold each other accountable, and encourage each other throughout the process.

Having strong social support will help hold you accountable and keep you motivated to lose weight. Consider joining a support group to help boost your motivation along the way.

The Bottom Line

Keep the idea in your mind that results come when you put forth the effort, so keep pushing and drop that extra weight. Will it be a little hard for you at first? It might be.

However, with time and a lot of effort, you notice that the extra weight will begin to lift off of you. All you have to do now is started by taking it one step at a time and focus on today. You will be well on your way to a healthier you in no time at all.
