Weight Loss Motivation

You have just resolved to eat healthier and exercise more. But how do you stick with your self-improvement plan? You need techniques that will strengthen your resolve. "People believe that through discipline alone, they can create behavioral changes but typically, willpower doesn't last very long."

Here are 12 tips to help you find your "get up and go."

1. Eliminate Excuses

"Even if you're not a morning person, schedule exercise for first thing in the morning." "The later you wait to exercise, the more reasons you'll have for not doing it." "Keep gym clothes everywhere -- in the car, at work -- so there's never a reason not to go." So what do you need to do? Sleep in your sports bra? Lay your workout clothes out on the bed the night before? Ask a friend to call and remind you to get moving? Figure out what works -- then do it.

2. Kid Around

Of course, finding time to work out was simpler B.C. (Before Children) -- but just because family comes before fitness on your list of priorities, it does not mean there is not room for both in your life. Get your children involved with you. Take a family hike, go for a group bike ride -- or roll with it. "Scooters and in-line skates are great for kids and can be just as much calorie-burning fun for mums," And, getting moving with you is good for the little people, "The children of families who exercise together are more likely to be active later in life."

3. Plan with Your Man

94 percent of spouses who worked out together stuck to their exercise plans, compared with only 57 percent of those who went at it alone. Can't tear him away from the TV long enough for a bike ride? Then try using the word "ball" to entice him.

4. Get a Gadget

Investing in a simple tool that will measure the progress you are making can be a big motivator. Try something as simple as a step counter, which counts your total steps over the course of a day.

5. Write It Down

Keep your own food and exercise log: People who are successful at losing and maintaining their weight are good at self-monitoring, according to several studies. "And remember to put positive feelings in print, too, to review on days you need a boost," Describing how good you felt after a workout, for instance, could help get you out the door next time.

6. Seek Inspiration

Feeling a little less than vibrant? Find a mental mentor to get you moving. -- Maybe your friend manages to make time for a morning walk despite having four kids under 10 -- and think of her when you are feeling too tired or busy.

7. Paint Pretty Pictures

How will eating better or sticking to an exercise plan make you look and feel in the long term? Imagine going on a date with your husband in a sexy new dress; picture running into your school nemesis looking toned and confident. "The point is to have motivational scenarios you can think about when you're having trouble sticking to your plan

8. Treat Yourself

Did you refrain from finishing your daughter's chips today? Did you take a brisk walk on your lunch break? Reward yourself. "Treat yourself to a simple pleasure,” "Promise yourself thirty minutes of quiet time to read a novel, or buy yourself a new set of luxurious bath gels."

9. Tune In to Tone Up

When it comes to exercise, music can move you -- not only because it offers mental stimulation, but also because it may help put you in a better mood. "Music's rhythm also helps exercisers maintain a reasonable intensity level," And listening to music may even help you work out longer and harder.

10. Sweat for a Cause

Sign up for a charity walk/run, like Race for Life which benefits breast-cancer research; you will help yourself by helping others. In addition, after hitting up friends and family for donations, you will be motivated to reach your goal.

11. Post Your Progress

Find a way to remind yourself how far you have come in your efforts to exercise and eat more healthfully. "Toss 10p in a jar every time you fit in a workout, and then cash out on a non-food splurge,”

12. Dress for Success

"If you're the kind who exercises in T-shirts and baggy sweats because your body wasn't meant for Lycra, think again," "Shapeless exercise clothes actually make you look worse than fitted ones do. You don't have to wear skimpy bras or hot pants -- just form-fitted clothing that lets you see your muscles." Check out Reebok's Fit System line (www.reebok.com), which includes workout wear to flatter more rounded bodies.
