We human beings have become really good at procrastination. If someone isn’t cracking the whip and making us do what we need to do, we are fine with putting it off, indefinitely.
Losing weight can be bad enough, because we often think of it as a chore in the first place. But it can become an even harder task to start when we don’t have an authority figure telling us to get it done. The pros and cons of this game are the same: you are your own boss.
You are the master of your own fate. If you need to get inspired to get off the couch, we can give you a hand. But remember that you are in charge of making those big changes happen.
Here are a few ideas for weight loss inspiration:
Join a gym/hire a trainer…
For some of us, it’s easier to commit to something if we make a monetary investment. Putting money into it means we literally own it, no backing out.
If you want someone else to be the boss of you, and you can afford it, consider joining a gym. That’s where the experts hang out, and they are for hire. They will be able to tell you what you need, how to do it right, and provide you with that motivation you need.
Read, read, read…
Many people have lost weight. Many of them started off with the same kind of goals as yours, worked really hard, and met those goals. And then they wrote books about the whole thing.
Between the library and the internet, there is tons of information waiting for you. So many clues, tips, and solid answers are there for you to discover. Sure, with all those opinions, sometimes the information may contradict, but that’s because some things have worked better for some people. This just gives you options.
Television has banked on what people are willing to do for a prize. We can accomplish a lot if we know a definite award is at the end, and maybe the idea of losing so many pounds just isn’t enough.
What will it take to get you going? A trip? An outfit? A night on the town? Pick it, plan it, and mark it on your calendar. When you’ve met your goal, you’ll win…twice!
