9 Ways to stay motivated during weight loss

You've probably seen lots of advertisements for easy weight loss. But in reality losing weight is more than just taking a pill, fasting, or drinking your food. And when it's not that easy it can be hard to stay motivated. Here are some tips to keep you motivated.

9 ways to stay motivated losing weight

Set realistic goals to stay motivated

When you decide to lose weight it’s easy to get overly optimistic. Social media and advertisements can lead you to believe that you can lose lots of weight quickly, and with minimal effort. But in reality, losing weight is more than just taking a pill or fasting or drinking your food. This makes setting realistic goals much more difficult.

Setting realistic goals for weight loss makes it easier to stay motivated because you are more likely to be successful.

How to stay motivated during weight loss

Don’t lose weight too quickly

It’s easy to be enthusiastic when you start a weight loss program which can result in losing weight too quickly. But this type of weight loss isn’t sustainable and can lead to you gaining back all (sometimes more) of the weight you lost. Losing weight too quickly will slow your metabolism and make it even harder to lose body fat. Of course, nothing zaps motivation faster than this. 

There can be ups and downs

We like to think of weight loss as a linear process but the reality can be much more bumpy. Your weight can be affected by things like hydration levels, electrolyte levels, and hormone levels. So even when you think you’re doing everything right, if you’ve eaten a salty meal or it’s that time of the month, your weight might temporarily go up. On the flip side, drinking alcohol can dehydrate you, making your weight temporarily go down, but it’s sure to bounce back up the next day.

My constant guidance and advice helps my patients lose weight steadily.

Stop watching the scale

When you make changes you might not always see the scale move, but you may be making changes. You can use a body composition scale to track body fat rather than weight. Ideally body fat should go down and muscle mass should come up. This can look like weight gain since muscle is denser than fat.

You can also take measurements of key areas to track progress. Measure your waist and hips (at the same place every time). This will give me a much better idea of your progress than the number on the scale.

Another way to keep track of your progress is to take progress photos at intervals throughout your journey. You’ll likely see the progress if you look back at previous photos. 

Why do you want to lose weight?

Weight loss can be easier to stay motivated to lose weight if you have a “why” that aligns with your values. Try writing down a list of reasons you want to lose weight. Feel the emotions behind why. The more emotionally driven the bigger the driver. Ask yourself how your life be better if you lose weight. Perhaps you have a family history of chronic disease, maybe you want to look better and feel more confident, or you want to take a load off of your achy joints.

Reward yourself

Rewards can be a great way to stay motivated with weight loss. You can tell yourself that after 2 weeks of avoiding sugary drinks you’ll buy yourself a new item of clothes or go to a movie. Keep your rewards non food related so it doesn’t kill your weight loss plan. 

Don’t compare yourself to others

When you are struggling to get results, it can be hard to stay motivated if you start comparing your results to other people. Especially to celebrities or social media influencers. Everyone is unique when it comes to weight loss and has their own set of weaknesses and strengths that they bring to the table when trying to lose weight.

You need accountability and support 

Accountability and support are so important when trying to lose weight. Having a close friend or partner who is supportive of your efforts will make it easier to stay motivated.
