Get Ready to Transform Your Body

To truly change your body and your weight, you need to have the right mindset. Take a few minutes to consider the following weight loss motivation tips before you even start your body makeover.

Be honest about your weight loss motivation

"More people come to me looking to save their wardrobe rather than their life," says Stephen Gullo, Ph.D., author of The Thin Commandments Diet. So if fitting into a smaller size is what's driving you, embrace it! Hang a picture of the outfit you hope to wear someplace you can see it. If lowering your disease risk and adding years to your life is your goal, post shots of family and friends on your fridge as a reminder of what you're working so hard for.

Deal with distractions and determine if you need some stress relief first

Do you have the emotional resources to take on this challenge right now? If you're coping with a heavy workload or a difficult relationship, you might focus on maintaining your weight and finding some stress relief until the other issues resolve, says Anne M. Fletcher, R.D., author of Thin for Life. But there are exceptions: Sometimes people slim down in the midst of chaos because weight is the one thing they can control.
