No motivation to start dieting? Maybe you're trying to take too big
a step to start. Forget the big step and start small. Start really
small and do take lots of little steps one at a time, until the little
steps add up and become a "big" step. All of the small steps you
traverse will mean lots of small successes. These small successes will
give you the motivation (aka encouragement) you need. This
encouragement is the way to get motivated when you think you don't have
what it takes to start a diet.
Here are some ideas for small steps you can use to up your motivation to diet:
Think more about anything related to dieting, losing the weight, emotional eating, etc.
Write a list of the pros and cons for losing the weight and a list of pros and cons for not losing the weight
Set the tiniest weight-loss goals for yourself so that each
goal-step will be painless—yes, absolutely painless (This in itself is
a goal you should shoot for.)
Try out some tiny changes to your current eating behavior, note the
results, and use the feedback to make additional tiny changes
There are lots more very little things you can do to ease into
dieting without having that big motivation obstacle stop you before you
even get started.
