If you have sufficient motivation then you do not need to follow a strict diet controlling the amount of proteins and carbohydrates that you eat throughout a day.

You would need any ridiculously difficult diets to follow, if you are motivated enough, you will automatically start to eat mindfully and a lot less than what you would have eaten had you been not motivated. So here are the weight loss tips on how to stay motivated for longer terms:

  1. Find out the reason of why you want to loose weight. Is it because you want to look good? Is it for health reasons, do you want to feel more energetic or you just want to be generally more healthy so that you can carry out your normal routines with ease. Is it because a special event is coming out? Finding out why you want to loose weight may be the most important step of all the steps when it comes to loosing weight. Try to find out exactly why you want to loose weight so that you can give your weight loss efforts a meaning. This would greatly help you stay on track if you go off track during your weight loss journey. Knowing why you want to loose weight is the key to staying motivated all the time.
  2. Find a partner. It is often easier to stay on track when you know that you have some competition. A partner can help you stay on track by reminding you of the foods and the plan that you are supposed to eat and follow respectively. Having a partner can also boost your enthusiasm for exercise. A partner can push you WHILE you exercise so that you can get the maximum benefit out of each and every workout that you do. A partner can make your that you do not slack off during exercise.
  3. Join a event or something. It is often difficult to stay motivated by purely imagining stuff. If you join a competition then you would know that you must stay in shape in order to perform well. That will further motivate you to exercise daily and keep you diet in check. You will eat healthier foods when your mind knows that you have to perform at a competition.
  4. Set yourself goals. Long term goals and short term goals. Long term goals can be the ultimate amount of weight you want to loose. You can set the time period and the things you are willing to do in order to achieve that goal. Short term goals can be weekly goals. Short terms goals are a great way to help you stay motivated as it is a useful tool to help you chart and measure your progress. Using short terms goals, you can alter your diet and exercise plans in order to achieve your long terms goals. You would feel a sense of accomplishment on reaching each one of your short term goals. A lot of people do not have enough patience to keep working hard without any reward if they do not have a short term goal and focus only on long term goals. By having short term goals, you can avoid get demotivated.
  5. Do not get fooled by the all or nothing attitude. Even if you miss out on a workout on a particular day, get as much exercise as you possibly can. Even a few push ups would do. It is not necessary that you workout 20 or 30 minutes every single day. If you do not have that much time on a particular day or are pressed up hard for time because of your commitments and miss out on a workout. Do not get demotivated, this is part of the journey. You miss some workouts and you make up for those on a day in which you feel good about yourself. Remember, every exercise you do, even as little as doing a single lunge helps you move forward in your ultimate goal of loosing weight and keeping it off for the rest of your life.

Getting motivated and staying motivated is the key to loosing weight. It is the mother of all weight loss solutions. No amount of weight loss solutions can help you better than this single weight loss solution.

Taking it day by day(not getting distracted by what bad you did the day before or at present) along with keeping a sight of your long term goal is the another key to maintaining the habits that will help you to loose weight.
