How to remain motivated through your weightloss journey

It is usually not easy to set a goal and remain on track towards achieving it. You need strong will and some motivation to keep you going whenever you set a goal. When you make up your mind to lose weight, you may begin to notice that holding on to your resolve is not as easy as you made it.  You may start getting discouraged due to obvious reasons like not seeing the results immediately, not getting supports and missing your favorite junks.

These attitudes lead to failure because one major factor you need to achieve your weightloss goal is motivation. Self motivation and external motivation are very important keys that will keep you going if you want to see a lasting result from your efforts.

I have come up with a list of five practiceable and realisitic tips that will help you remain motivated through your weightloss journey. Here they are:

1. Write down your weight loss goals

Write down the exact goal you want to achieve on paper. Make sure it is measurable and timebound. Your goal could be to lose 5kg in 15 days. Put down reasonable and realistic goals and match them with equally realistic time frame. Don’t be too hard on yourself so as not to give up easily.

2. Join a support group

Find a like minded group in your neighborhood and liaise with them to achieve your goals. A support group is just like having teammates because they look out for one another and a weightloss group is not an exception. You would be encouraged by the positive result of others and stay motivated to keep on moving despite all odds. So help your weightloss journey with a good support group.

3. Add colorful meals to your diet

Most weight watchers make the mistake of eliminating colorful meals from their lives. The best bet is to replace the colorful unhealthy option with beautiful healthy meals. You do not have to cut out your favorite meals completely, just start with a reduction while indulging more on the healthy meals. Then gradually switch up things, that way you would stay on track than the fast method you wouldn’t be able to maintain.

You could stock up your refrigerator with healthy foods, keep your fruits in a bowl and near places you could easily get a bite if need be. Replace your white pastries with whole grain pastries and add a lot of veggies to it.

4. Set a new target

As you stay motivated, you will get to know what works and what does not work. If you set new targets as you improve, you will find that you are working on a more feasible and realistic goal. This will help you achieve your weightloss dreams faster and efficiently.

5. Celebrate your victories

Keep yourself motivated and encouraged by celebrating even the tiniest of achievement. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done. This will pep you up and motivate you to want to do more. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Keep on moving and you will start to see the big and visible result.

SlimFitU has helped me maintain a healthy weight cum BMI through maintaining a consistent healthy lifestyle that includes healthy eating and regular strength and cardio exercises.

Starting with baby steps and going at my own pace as I’m not in competition with anyone” is our individual mantra at SlimFitU.

Mandatory daily feedback on food and exercises has made it almost impossible not to comply.

Fatimah Kehinde Omoyele

My weightless success story started in October when my friend added me to a group she’d formed for healthy eating habits, workouts and general weightloss tips.

Sincerely, at first, I was totally uninterested because I’d been dealing with weight issues for over 9 years and had tried all sorts of program without success. After about a week in the group, I decided to give it a trial. I followed the eating and workout tips and within 6 months I was down by over 25kg. From 98 to 72kg!

It hasn’t been without any challenge but the support from SlimFitU has been wonderful. I have successfully kept majority of the weight off, I’m more active and I feel really great.
