Standing in front of the mirror telling yourself you need to lose weight is not going to make it happen. Losing weight is tough but rewarding. And because there are no short cuts, a sustained effort is required. Wanting it isn’t enough. You need motivation, not just to get started but also to keep it going.
1. Know Why You Want to Lose Weight
You know all the reasons – to look better, to feel better, to be healthier. But which one is most important to you. You need something to hang your hat on other than generalizations. First and foremost you have to want to do it for yourself and no one else but find your key reason and understand it. If it’s look good in a bikini next summer, so be it.
