There are very few things that people have as much in common with when it comes to weight loss as motivation. Staying motivated is hard, particularly because weight loss is a process that takes time.

There are a few key factors in this, and ways to help encourage your own weight loss plans.
Think about why you want to lose the weight. There are a variety of reasons that this is for some- being healthier, worried about their looks, have an important event coming up.

Your goal setting can be a big factor as well. If it is just one goal: weight loss. You may find you have a bit of a problem. Setting your goals in terms of long term, medium term and short term goals is really the better way to go about it. You know that your long term goal is going to be how much weight you ultimately want to lose. However, give yourself a few smaller milestones to reach in between- smaller targets can be big wins in the battle of the bulge and you will find that this helps to be an encouraging factor as you go on. This is also a wonderful way to continually track your own progress in weight loss.
