weight loss motivation

This technique has helped me to hang on, hold on there, just a little longer until I make it in all walks of life. It has ensured me success in personal and professional life too. This time, this has helped me in my never ending weight loss journey.

Fake It Till You Make It , simply means start believing something what has not come true yet but you are constantly trying to achieve it. Let me tell you how I do it !

Whenever I and Anamika talk, I make sure I tell her my weight. If my weight is X.9 kgs , I always tell her its X kgs. The .9kgs now becomes a target for me! Next time when I speak to her, I know I can’t tell her I am stuck, its a reputation risk lol. This way I make myself answerable to her.

X.9 is my favorite figure because I get so motivated to chuck off the figure after decimal ๐Ÿ˜‰ . we did share a few tricks that have worked for us to break the stall and to push your weight down when you have stalled, check out these bestย weight loss tricks.

To make Fake It Till You Make It technique work for you, here are certain things that you need to do –

  • Have a partner in crime. Make yourself answerable to someone.
  • Always believe in your lowest weight reading, it may not be accurate but it will always be a motivation. When you hit your lowest point, consider all readings above it as your increased motivation. Work hard to hit your lowest figure every time you weigh.
  • Reward yourself every time you lose a few kgs.
  • Jump a few times when you just drop 100 grams welcoming a new number on the scale ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Ditch your perfection. You can’t wait for the day to do everything right one day and lose weight. ย Its like you will drive your car when there is no other car on the road. Comon, that will never happen. Take baby steps, 1 step at a time takes you closer to your goal. If you are 80% right, you are on the right track !

  1. Lol!!The title just made me laugh!! Btw my weight today was not fake ๐Ÿ˜‰ jokes apart, good write up ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess I will try it to others…nt in my tracker ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. yup, Deepthi rightly said…. I would surely die of depression or stress if my trick failed… its better to keep it true… BUT to each his/her own… so … whatever works ….. ultimately the results are what matter. Isn’t it??

  3. Deepthi, you can never lie to yourself ๐Ÿ™‚ . The idea is to hit your lowest weight which may not be your true weight. Long term goals are good but they usually fail without short term trackers. Whatever works for you, is good ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Kanan – Depression is a big word and weight is not larger than life. Truth does not change whether or not we accept it. Sometimes its ok to ignore certain things to be happy if accepting them makes you unhappy. After all, life is all about happiness.

  5. Lol, you can disagree rather than a meek agreement. Anyway most of things I write here, we have different thoughts on it , which is absolutely fine.

  6. I do agree Tarun, but short term goals are effective only initially but at a later stage they generally fail as weight loss speed slows down once you have around those last 10 kg to lose. See as I said to each her/his own… those short term goals have stopped working with me… so its a patient long run thing with me now… ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. When your weight becomes an obsession it becomes larger than life. Its how one sees it; for some its okay to be fat but some can’t take it lightly to stay even a bit overweight… and yes the ‘ignoring’ you are talking about is mostly the reason for bigger issues later. When its about your health better not to ignore anything.

  8. Achcha, you are agreein here and disagreeing below , what does that mean ๐Ÿ˜› ? And I dont read into words, I read into heads ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. hmm I agree but if you target say 1 year for last 10 kgs, and don’t lose anything for six months, will you make it end of year? I am not saying 10/12 is your monthly goal but you need to keep moving baby steps and that’s what i call trackers. I think if you keep revisiting goals, they don’t fail.

  10. Thanks Swati ๐Ÿ™‚ . I can totally relate to you.
    Its the same way I felt about marks when I was in school. I felt 98 and 99 does not make a difference but 99 and 100 are poles apart ๐Ÿ™‚ . Its all in the head ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I never said ignore health.I was referring to depression caused by any miscellaneous reasons. You choose to be happy, you make reasons to be happy and not wait for them to come knock your door.

  12. Weight loss also depends on state of mind.. when my mind accepts i am losing weight (faking of course), it kick starts weight loss mechanism. we start acting on eating healthy, etc.

    But it should not be the only thing, we have to ACT, make uniformed decisions on eating, fitness and a right choice of lifestyle making it forever, rather short-term..

    My take of this article, Tarun’s & Kanan’s conversation.. You guys rock.. Gyan, suggestions and all good things.. ๐Ÿ˜€
