Weight Loss Motivation – How Do You Stay Motivated On A Low Carbs Diet?
Weight loss motivation is key to success. This post has one sole purpose – to gather inspirational thoughts and feedback from others who are eating low carbs. Low carbs diets are kind of funny, becase on one hand, you open yourself up to a brand new world of eating different foods that you otherwise probably wouldn’t eat. It really is fun. But on the other hand, unless you have a ton of creative spark, it’s all too easy to get distracted and eat the same thing all the time, which ultimately and unfortunately leads to low carbs burnout.
Then the weight comes back, as usual.
Be honest, unless this is your first rodeo, you know that as soon as you give up on the diet, it’s only a matter of weeks or months before you pack the weight back on. It sucks. But that’s why having a community of support really helps maintain your weight loss motivation.
Well, alone, we’re just ourselves. Just one person. But together, we’re a gangly mass of smart minds who can think collectively and encourage each other to continue on. Isn’t it a great feeling when your pants are looser, or your shirt doesn’t fit as snug? Why give that up? Is junk food really that important? Honestly, sometimes it is! Depending on your lifestyle, you very well may choose sugar over a healthier life. Sad, right?
It doesn’t have to be that way though. You absolutely need encouragement, because without it, your chances of making it through is rather slim. It can be done on a solo mission, but it’s tough. The more times you start hearing “Wow, are you losing weight?”, the more motivated you should become. When people actually notice it, it means you’re doing everything right, so just keep riding the wave! It’s not that hard to maintain your diet motivation!
Anyway, these were just some random thoughts I had before I hit the sack tonight. I’ve had some pretty strong cravings the past few days, and I could probably use a bit of motivation myself. I would nearly kill for jelly doughnut, but I know that I have to continue on my path to normal weight-hood.
All the best, and please share your thoughts below
