A month after the new year it can be hard to stay motivated on a weight loss journey.
Wombourne slimming expert, Claire Beaumont of Slimming World explains how to stay on track.

Why do you want to lose weight?

To keep motivated…you need a direct reason why losing weight is important to you. And it needs to be important!

So for a wedding or holiday? Keeping that in mind week in, week out is key…so make it visual. This could be a photograph of your holiday destination as the home screen on your phone. How about hanging up the dress you’ll wear to that party that you WILL fit into;  seeing it every day reminds us what we want, and keeps us focused.

Support when you need it

Support is another key aspect of your journey.  Losing weight, oining a gym or running with a friend will always be more beneficial than going it alone…someone has your back!
Seeing results each week is also important and to do this you got to give it 100%. When you cognitivly make the connection between the effort put in and result there is a certain satisfaction that YOU DID THAT! That in itself pushes you to repeat that the next week..to get that feeling again!
