When you give yourself a variety of vegetables to pick from, it becomes much easier to stick with your diet over the long term.

Losing weight can be tough. It takes a lot of dedication and motivation to start a program, and it seems it takes even more to really stick with it. Often, people manage to build up a lot of motivation to get started, but with time, it gets harder and harder to stick with your diet and weight loss plan. The following tips can help you to continue with your diet and weight loss journey beyond the first few weeks.


If your ultimate goal is to lose a total of 10, 20, or even 200 pounds, great! Keep your greater goal, always. You should, however, also shoot for smaller more attainable goals to serve as landmarks along your journey to a healthier, slimmer you.

Consider setting a goal to lose a small about of weight each week. You will stay more excited about losing weight as you get near, achieve, or go beyond these mini-goals week after week. This will also make it easier to map and observe your progress.



Variety is a major component of keeping yourself excited about your diet and exercise program. Change up your workouts every few weeks to keep both your muscles and your mind challenged; you don’t want either to get bored! Vary your workouts a little each day too, as it can get a bit boring doing the exact same thing day in and day out.

Vary your diet as well. Limiting yourself to fewer selections can help you count calories, but it could easily make you get bored. Have two or three selections for each meal that you rotate through.


It’s hard to be good all the time. Plan to cheat a little. If you know you are working out regularly, let yourself take a day off once in a while. When it’s a special occasion, allow yourself to have a piece of cake. Just make sure that these cheats are only occasional, not regular occurrences.


These tips don’t guarantee that you will stay motivated throughout your weight loss journey, but if you were ever truly motivated to transform yourself, these tips should help. If you find things that work for keeping you motivated, please continue to do those things as well. The more you do to keep up momentum, the better, as you will have an even greater chance of sticking with your diet and fitness goals.
