How to motivate yourself to exercise.
1. Do it with a friend.
Statistics tell us that people who exercise with a friend are more
successful at exercising consistently. You can keep each other
accountable. Knowing that someone is waiting for you to exercise with
them can be great motivation to show up and get it done!
2. Do exercising which you enjoy. For example, you find running
boring. You can replace it with any other cardio activity: roller
blading, playing badminton, tennis, bicycling burn a lot of
calories, and you feel more like you are having fun, than like you are
punishing yourself for that extra doughnut.
3. Choose music you like, dynamic and vigourous, to make it more
4. Check regularly with your clothes, see how they become bulkier,
whoop from joy, photograph the progress and create a photo gallery on
5. Set fitness goals, independent on weight loss. For example, say to
yourself "Next time, I will run quicker, and it will take me only ten
minutes to do so", or such. You will feel like a real athlete,
preparing for a big day. Keep a journal of your athletic achievements.
6. Compete. Enrol into a local amateur tennis competition, for
example. This way, you will have a goal to achieve, which is different
from your weight loss, and you will have people to impress and you
will have to be adequate, so you'll try harder.
7. Reward yourself (but not with food, you will end eating more than
you burned, and will become disillusioned quickly). Invent a set of
rules for yourself, for example: every time I am not feeling like
exercising, but do it, I will put 1 dollar in my piggy bank, every
time I achieve this or that goal - three. At the end of the month go
out and buy yourself the most impractical things you were craving but
denying yourself with this money.
8. Do not wait for some big moment or big day to start exercising.
There are spaces in your daily schedule when you procrastinate - fill
them with activities. For example, instead of sitting on the couch,
saying "It does not matter, I am going to the gym the next day", get
off and do a series of push ups, or skip with the skipping rope (buy
it for one dollar in one dollar store), walk down the stairs at work
or around the block at your lunch break. This way, you are exercising,
fighting boredom, and do not have to sweat in the gym for hours
afterwards. This random 7-10 minutes activities will roll at the end
of the day into a full gym session!
9. Use "I will show them all" technique (sparingly). Think about the
mean people who teased you, the girl who refused to go out with you, a
sneering sales person in the clothes shop, imagine them all, and "show
them" - run fast, kick high, and end being and feeling gorgeous!

How to motivate yourself to lose weight.
1. Announce it to a bunch of people. Tell your family and friends
that you are going to lose N pounds a month. It helps, because,
others will expect you to change and will ask you about your
2. Make a bet. Either with another friend, who is trying to
lose weight, or with someone who does not. You will feel like
winning, and winning that (maybe not that large) sum of money.
3. Buy a cute outfit, the size you want to become, and try it
on every evening.
4. You will need to exercise to lose weight, so find an
activity that you really enjoy.
5. Combine your goals. Say, you joined a gym, or started using a
swimming pool, or joined a badminton
club - use the occasion to meet people of opposite gender and
socialize. This way, exercise will be more enjoyable.
6. Keep a track of your progress. Photograph yourself once a week,
weight yourself, put the data down and make it your weekly ritual.
Seeing progress really helps.
7. Put photos of athletic looking men or women on your fridge. Every
time you open the door, you will look at them, and want to be like
them, that will help with binging.
8. Find same-minded people. Join a club, or find a group of people
who are trying to lose weight, to mutually support each other.
It will boost your social life, too.
9. Often, people eat because they are bored. Evaluate your life and
try to find ways to make it more interesting (evening classes, going
outs, volunteering, a new hobby). This will keep you busy and keep
your mind off eating.
10. Spend more time with your dog or get one from a shelter. You will
do a good deed, plus will keep active and occupied, walking it out.
Meet other dog lovers in your area, to make it more sociable.

If you like vegetable eat green ones. They have no calories and fill you up so you are basically eating nothing and you lose weight when you are excersising. For breakfast have oats (porriage) this is such a healthy option, its takes a while for it to digest so you are fuller for longer and this cause you not to snack. Only drink water and no fizzy drinks. This made a big difference in my weight. Amazing. Water tastes so good now. Have alot of sllep. 8-9 hours. This keeps you energetic and healthy.
I get motivated by pumping music. I run hard when fast passed music is playing on my ipod and walk when it is calm music. I also think to myslef i i want to lose weight i have to excersie. This keeps me going. Not only do you lose weight by excersising, you get so toned. My bum and thighs are amazing now.
Cut out all sugary foods, this will be hard at first, but u will get used to it. I used to eat icecream everynight. It tastes like fat to me now. Our tastbuds change their likes and dislikes when you start eating healthy. It takes a while for them to adjust though. Dark chocolate is supposedly good for you. It boosts moods. Only once little piece a day though to get the benefits.
Excersise at least 1 hr a day, preferably swimming/running/jogging/walking/cycling... At other times of the day you are burning calories by breathing, watching tv. You burn 100 calories an hour when sleeping. So an hour of excersise a day will be enough to lose weight. Dont push yourself too hard otherwise you wont want to excersise. make excersise fun by doing it with a friend.
For soft skin try mud masks. They are amazing. They get rid of blackheads and pimples too. Excersising and eating healthy gets rid of pimples too. Also dont have a fringe over your forehead cause this makes your head sweat and this causes pimples under your fringe on your forehead. Also exfoliate once a week. And when using a cleanser, use a face washer with it. This gets rid of dirt and grime and dead skin cells.
Excersise in the adds of when you are watching tv. For 2 minites each add break. Tv 2 hours a day. this adds up to quite a lot. You can run on the spot. Do squats or leg raises.
Good luck with it all. I hope my tips helped motiveate youa nd start you on the right track.
