9 way to keep diet motivation for 3 weeks

 

-Carry a picture of a person you love


Actresses or people of hospitality industry who are always watched by others are somehow sophisticated. That’s because they are potentially aware of being watched.

Feeling to be watched makes them think not to be careless, good and important factor to maintain tension. So, carry a picture of a person you love or your favorite actor. If you feel like giving up, they will talk to you.

 

-Use stairs, not elevators


It is more about behavior than maintaining motivation, but adding such action to your daily life becomes one of barometers. Thinking it as an exercise, you of course use some energy with it. The important thing is to tell your body that “I’m on a diet now”.

When you can use stairs unconsciously, your body knows that you are on a diet. As it becomes natural to use stairs, rather than forcing yourself to do so, you can see that your motivation is maintained.

 

-Write down the reasons of dieting


Why do you want to lose weight? Maybe you don’t want to “lose weight”, but want to “change environment” or “want to be happy”.

Maybe you think that losing weight = becoming beautiful, being healthy, and changing life. Write down reasons why you want to go on a diet. You might realize that the ways to make your wish come true is not only diet.

 

-Make declaration everyday


Putting into words and saying them out loud is a key to accomplish something. Instead of using blurry phrases like “I want to be something like that”, make declaration in detail in past tense “on this day (3 weeks from now), I lost OO kg and my face looked sharp”.

When doing this, I recommend you to use a mirror. Imagine that a person in a mirror is yourself 3 weeks later. It is more effective to imagine that you, who have lost weight and became beautiful, is talking to you.

 

-Imagine yourself becoming beautiful


What do you want to wear after losing weight? Where do you want to go and who do want to spend time with? You can enjoy dressing up, and want to challenge new clothes, nails and hairstyles if you become beautiful. You feel lighter, and feel like not getting tired more than before.

You will be smiling more and enjoy everyday. Yes, everything is happy. Imagine about happy days and yourself will give you supportive push.

 

-Intend to eat and save money


When you can’t resist temptation, change your mind and think “if I don’t go out drinking once, I can save this amount of money”. You can change the habit of eating and drinking too much, or going out for drinking because your can’t turn down offers.

If you make other decisions, you will find some different things next day such as your body feeling lighter or recovery from swelling. You will one day notice “less fat, more money”. This is exactly to kill two birds with one stone.

 

-Prepare present system


Prepare a present for yourself for doing this or buying that, when successfully finish diet lead to maintain high motivation. What I want to recommend here is to give present frequently rather than “when it is successfully done”.

Like a milestone, once every week maybe good. People can’t jump ahead at once. Moving step by step is good enough. However, don’t give yourself foods as a gift!

 

-Post your ideal body style


Cut out your ideal style from magazines and post them in bathroom or in entrance. Information entering from eyes easily approach to subconscious, so you should make good use of them. Point is to post them at places you see everyday.

Bathroom is the best place to check your style, and you always go through the entrance when going out. You can make sure how you want to be like, and have your brain remember how you want to be.

 

-Promise with someone


Diet seems like a promise with yourself. Holding back hunger or avoid eating cakes is your will. No one does it for you.

When you are on diet, you turn down offers of eating out, or mind about how much to eat and what to order. Dieting influences your life more than you expect. If you make a promise with someone about diet, you will be eased to feel that “I’m not alone”.

 

Did you like it?

After 3 weeks, your motivation becomes a habit. You will feel uneasy or painful in the beginning, but realize that it has become part of your life after continuing. You should not be forcing yourself or feeling obligated, but enjoying the life with diet by then.

Knowing ways to control feeling is useful not only for diet but also when making some wish come true. Make yourself easy to accomplish your goals, and attract more happiness as well as beautiful body.
