Know Your Reasons and Believe in Yourself
Start by knowing why you need to lose weight. Research has shown that weight loss is closely linked to mindset so believe in yourself and that you can do it.
Do you want to lose weight to gain more energy?

Knowing your reasons and believing in your abilities to shed the extra weight with give you the encouragement you need to make that first move.
Keep Yourself Motivated
Stay the course and keep yourself encouraged by tracking your progress and using a food diary as well as an app to track your everyday exercise.
Practice positive self-talk. For instance, instead of “I’ll never be slim. I’ve only lost half a stone” say “I’m making progress. I’ve lost half a stone and the rest will go away really soon too.”
