Weight loss on a budget

Losing weight can seem expensive when you don’t know where to start. Thankfully, we now know tricks and secrets to budget weight loss plans.

Weight loss journeys can be challenging, especially when you don’t quite know where to start. It can seem costly, time consuming and too hard to follow through with, but it doesn’t have to be. There are ways that you can kick start a weight loss program without breaking the bank in the process, here is how.

Make lists

I will keep going back to how effective it is to make lists and document your journey. Not only does it keep you accountable for your actions, but it gives you a very tangible report of your progress, where your weaknesses lie and where your strengths are. Document everything that you eat and drink daily, as well as what activities you are doing and how you feel after each day. This will give you insight into your program, how effective it is and where you can make changes.

Numerous studies have shown that joining online weight-loss groups or challenges help you keep weight off. When you sign up for a plan or challenge online, you’re joining hundreds of people who have the same challenges that you do. You will share your progress and the hiccups that you face with people who face the same trials and who will be able to sympathize, offer support and solutions to your weight loss woes. Plus, it’s always lovely to make new friends!

Have a mantra

Ever heard of a self-fulfilling prophecy? I know how strange this may sound, but if you keep focusing on the things that you struggle with and can’t do, you’ll convince yourself that it is impossible. So, if you convince yourself that giving up smoking is impossible to do, it will be. When you change the way you think about weight loss and your capabilities, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve. So, instead of the negatives, think positive thoughts about losing weight, being strong and being capable of amazing things. When you repeat these phrases, they will become true for you.

I’ll be the first to confess that I love my morning coffee a little too much. In fact, I don’t count the first cup of coffee at all, but rather see it as a starter to get me going. After breakfast, I try to stick to drinking at least 3 liters of water throughout the day. When you switch up your usual coffee or tea break for water, you do wonders for your weight loss plan.
