Lose Weight Fast and Easy

January 10th, 2010 · No Comments

How to Motivate Yourself to Lose Weight: People have thought of thousands of innovative ways to get motivated to lose weight. Many people who have lost weight had an “a ha” moment that cemented their motivation to lose weight. I’ve come up with a few ways to kick your motivation into high gear.

Here are some of the best ways I’ve found to motivate myself.

A future event: Think of a future event, such as a wedding, reunion, or even a vacation. This works best if going to the event at your present weight would embarrass you. Putting on a bathing suit when you’re fat is mortifying, so I book a stay at a beach resort.

Weight loss contest: Losing is never fun (unless I’m losing weight). The contest should have someone you’re motivated to compete against (e.g. someone you don’t like or who is competitive themselves). If only friends are involved, I won’t take it seriously, consuming secret cookies to defeat the purpose.

Clothes to Motivate: You pick out a dream outfit to motivate you. Put it in a prominent place, like near your scale or exercise machines. Imagine yourself wearing it. Change up the outfit occasionally to keep it fresh. What is initially motivating can start to blend into the background if you’re not careful.

Contrast with old outfits: There’s no better way to see how far you’ve come than to see where you once were. Your new size becomes your new normal. Some of the sizes I used to wear look like kiddie clothes when compared with my current size. Put them on and say “I wore this once, and there’s no reason I can’t wear it again”.

Charts and Graphs: Nothing beats an informative chart. A good spreadsheet program like Excel can create a graph that tracks your progress day by day, pound by pound. That way you can track your progress. You’ll also see that it’s normal to occasionally gain weight before continuing the downward trend. It makes the inevitable difficulties you’ll face easier to tough out. I also keep a calendar with scheduled workouts near the weight loss graph. This lets me see the direct effort of my exercise routine on my weight.

Reasons for wanting to lose: Create a list with every reason you want to drop the pounds. No reason is stupid; you’d be surprised at how important a seemingly stupid reason might be. Wanting to look like a swimsuit model is certainly a laudable goal, but simply not standing out is probably more achievable in the short term.

Think of someone who would be jealous of your success: Trying to inspire jealousy in an ex can be an amazing motivational tool for certain people. This works even if you don’t intend to see him or her again. Just keep thinking about how they’ll regret getting rid of you when they see you again. Conversely, you can think of it as showing him or her what a pain it must have been to be with the fatter you. Anyone who bothers you will suffice. This works especially well if they’re also trying to lose weight. Imagine how you’ll feel when you outdo their efforts.

I hope some of the ideas I’ve shared will help you succeed. Remember that this is an achievable goal, with each day’s effort bringing you closer to your goal. Now go make your nemesis jealous!
