3 Strategies to Pull Up Your Self Motivation to Lose Weight

We all face that moment when we know we must change and we must pull up our self motivation to lose weight. The problem is that many of us don't really understand how to go about motivating ourselves in this way. This article shares some proven methods that will allow you to move into motivation.

1. "Self motivation" of course comes from within so your first task in finding that self motivation to lose weight will be to get your head in the game. Results on the scale will not come without your full engagement so begin today to focus on the positive results that will come from your efforts and limit your focus on the day-to-day tasks that you must do.

2. Keep a food journal. This is a simple strategy but one that works. You will instantly find that your motivation to eat better kicks in when you have to write down everything you eat and drink.

3. Prevent yourself from being pulled down by conquering your cravings. One way motivation can nosedive is if you start to give into cravings. When you do this it can bring up a very negative self-image which rocks your self motivation.

To conquer your cravings you will have to do a bit of detective work. The reason you feel compelled to eat "junk" food is not solely because the food tastes good; it is because you have a hidden advantage to eating it. When you uncover that hidden advantage you will overcome the craving. Ask yourself, "What am I getting from this snack?" and allow yourself to answer honestly.

Finding that self motivation to lose weight is possible and you can hold onto that motivation when you get your head in the game, keep track of the foods you eat and conquer your cravings.
