Staying Motivated - Our Tips for Success
Posted: 3rd February 2016
Making a New Year’s resolution to lose weight is a big step and putting this resolution into action is an even bigger step. However it is also important to stay motivated on your journey to help you reach your goals. Here are Natural Ketosis’ tips for staying motivated on your journey in 2016.
Do not weigh and measure yourself everyday
This is probably one of the easiest and quickest ways to ensure you remain motivated. If you weigh yourself every day you are putting pressure on yourself to notice a change each day.
The body undergoes natural fluctuations daily and so one day it could look like a gain has occurred, causing you to think/feel negatively, which will have an impact on your motivation levels. Stick with weighing once a week!
Stay aware of everything you have achieved already and keep your goals in mind
Think about what you have already achieved, have you noticed a change in your health or already dropped a dress size? Reaffirm your overall goals and always keep them in mind.
Always recognise your success
This could be anything; from as little as saying no to the piece of cake offered to you at work, to being able to reduce certain health medications. Everything you achieve and all goals you reach are important and are a great way to keep you motivated to reach your overall goal.
Keep a visible record of your progress
Having a visible display of your weekly or monthly results, which is kept somewhere you will see it often, will help boost your motivation. Post your results on a graph and keep it on the fridge or have it taped to your mirror where you get ready in the morning. Also try marking key milestones within your journey clearly so they are visible to you.
Add variety to your routine
Breaking up the norm can make things a little more interesting and allow you to maintain your motivation. For example if you feel that you always have the same vegetables for dinner try adding in new options, or try some of the KetoKooks recipes to make your meals a little more exciting.
