How to Maintain your Motivation

1. Set realistic and achievable goals. These should be something that appeal to you as it’s hard to go after another person’s goals.

2. Think of meaningful ways to reward your progress.

3. Expect to have set-backs and encounter obstacles. When that happens, focus your mind and renew your determination. Refuse to give up.

4. Decide to remain a positive thinker. Refuse to ever stop believing in yourself. When you feel discouraged, decide that you’ll fight on.

5. Share your goals with others, and seek encouragement when you’re finding it hard to keep going on your own.

6. Practice saying no to other options and distractions that may seem appealing – but distract you from your goal.

7. Post inspirational quotes in places you can see to encourage you to work to achieve your goal.

8. Practice self care so you don’t burn out. You need to pace yourself if you are going to reach your goal.

 I’ve struggled with my weight since middle school going through every fad diet out there and burning my self out with exercising 5x a week only to lose a few pounds and gain it right back. Once I became vegetarian I lost 50lbs in 5 months! With 0 exercise. I’ve never felt better in my life and I know I will never go back to eating meat! It’s been 12 months so far and I’m 81lbs down!
