How Can I Motivate Through My Weight Loss?

Hi everyone.
Today is the start of the third week of my weight loss plan. When I first started out, I was having no problem eating super healthy and I was always energized and excited about working out. Recently though, I’ve noticed that my motivation has gone down a lot and all I want to do is eat and I have no motivation to exercise at all.
Any ideas on how I can get motivated before I undo all my hard work?
Thanks

Reward yourself. Every week, do something for yourself if you stick to your plan. For example, get yourself a manicure or pedicure. Or a new magazine. Really anything but food, which is kind of common sence. I mean, “YAY, I’VE BEEN EATING HEALTHY AND EXCERSIZING FOR A WEEK, NOW I’LL GO EAT A CHOCOLATE BAR AND GAIN IT BACK!!” Too bad it doesn’t work that way *sighs* So yeah, do little weekly things, and if you have like a date to work up to (like, I’ll do this plan until June 1st), go out shopping when it’s over, and buy your self a new outfit to show off your adorable little figure! Have fun, sweetie! God bless and good luck!

Ken asks…

What are some reliable, good weight loss plans?

yes, I’m know this question has been asked a million times, and there are about a million and one answers to go along with it. But I am asking this question honestly, asking opinions on what has worked for people. I’m talking about serious weight loss too, not just “oh I want to fit into a size 2 pair of jeans” type of deal. I need to lose a good amount of weight for health reasons and lifestyle choice. Yes I am an active person, and I have tried some programs before, usually had good results with Weight Watchers, but for some reason it’s just not working so well now despite watching the points and such. So I’m looking for a reliable, inexpensive weight loss plan. I am in college, with limited funds and options, and this may be the reason WW isn’t doing so good, not sure, but that’s not really the point either. What plans/techniques/ suggestions can you make or things you’ve tried that have worked for you?

Hello:

The recommended diet right now is 2k calories a day. It’s recommended that you eat 5 meals instead of 3 to spread the calories. If you eat rice, I highly recommend eating brown rice instead of white rice because it doesn’t contain as much sugar as white rice. Also, try drinking a lot of water since it helps control appetite. Avoid diet soda because diet soda is just as bad as regular soda. Eat a lot of protein after you’re done exercising because it helps relax muscles. Don’t eat too much bread either, because it can make you gain weight. Eat a balanced meal, meaning if you eat meat, eat veggies and fruit too. And I would recommend eating fruits and veggies during the summer, because it helps your body stay cool.

Exercise wise, I would recommend doing an every other day workout. For example, Monday-Wednesday and Friday try to run and do as much cardio. The other days try to work on upper body. Believe it or not, that’s how military personnel work out during their basic training. Sundays, you can go easy and do whatever you want. I would also suggest hiking and high altitude training, because it helps build stamina and endurance. Hiking two to three hours may be tiring, but it’s completely worth it. If you have gym membership, try using the elipticals and stair masters (sorry for the misspelling.) I usually go on lvl 15 on the stair masters and I burn calories like crazy.

Try to get as much sleep as possible too. Researcher found out that the more you sleep, the less hungry you get when you wake up.

Daniel asks…

Will I have left over skin after weight loss?

I am an 18 year old girl and I am planning on losing 60-80 pounds by the middle of summer, I was wondering what the chances are of me have left over (saggy) skin after this weight loss? I plan on doing cardio and weight training as well as toning. I am 5’8 and 230 right now.

Maricela answers:

Well, the short answer is yes, but you’re only 18, you have plenty of collagen left in your skin so there’s a great chance that your skin will tighten up if you keep the weight off.

Donna asks…

What are some subtle ways to lose weight?

I feel that I’m putting on more weight than I should be. I want to get rid of it using ways in which I don’t need to change my whole diet and sign up to a weight loss plan – and plus at the age of twelve I shouldn’t be doing all those things anyway because it could have an effect on me in the long-run. Are there any ‘little’ things that I could do to become healthier/fitter?

Sorry for the long paragraph and/or being in the wrong category.

Don’t eat as much work out diet go for walks with dogs
