How to stay motivated on your weight loss journey

Do you start your weight loss journey all excited and ready to make a change? You're walking 10,000 steps a day, you've joined the gym, and you're eating salads. Maybe you've even started meal prepping or trying out new healthy recipes.

But as time passes, that initial spark starts to fizzle out. You might skip a few walks, visit the gym less frequently, and gradually return to your old eating habits.

It's a common thing — I've seen it happen so many times, and losing motivation is one of the biggest reasons why people give up.

Feeling unmotivated? It might be due to:

  • Slow results: Not seeing the numbers drop on your bathroom scales can be very discouraging.

  • Lack of accountability: It’s easy to fall off track when you're busy or tired.

  • Confusion: With so many diet plans out there, from ketogenic to low-fat, it’s hard to know which one works for you. 

  • Boredom: Who wants to eat bland foods all the time?

  • Emotional eating: When stress hits, comfort foods like ice cream, cookies, and chips can become all too tempting.
