Weight Loss Tips - How To Stick To Your Diet Even When You Are Feeling Discouraged!

Face it, we all know it, diets are not fun. No matter how any one tries to white wash it, they simply are not fun and if you don't see results, well it becomes even worse. The idea of restricting yourself and not being able to do what you want is somewhat against human nature and that's one of the things that makes dieting so difficult. Another thing is that you don't always see the results you want, at least not right away and that just leads to discouragement. If a person gets discouraged about something more times than not they are just going to walk away and give up. As easy as it is to say, you still need to try and hang in there so that eventually you will reap the rewards of what a diet has to offer. Below are a few pointers to try and help you get through the discouragement and onto your final goal.

A really good thing to do when you begin to feel discouraged with your diet is to just simply start ignoring the scale. At least try and ignore it as much as you can. If you get into the habit of checking the scale every single day or even several times a day, you really aren't going to see any big differences and then you are painting an unrealistic picture for yourself which is going to lead to discouragement. If you want to help yourself, the best thing for you to do is to try to check it no more than once a week. Do your best to not weigh yourself any more than that. There's simply no sense in doing it more. A better way to determine how your diet is working is how your clothes begin to fit on your body. If you start noticing a difference there, then you know some sort of change is going on.

Don't set lofty goals that are going to frustrate you. Don't set yourself up for failure. So you want to lose 50 pounds, this is great but don't make that your goal to start with. What you should do is set small scale goals that will lead to the larger goal in the end. So set a goal to lose 10 pounds and when that goal is achieved set a goal to lose another 10 pounds. Before you know it, you will have reached that 50 pound goal. Smaller goals are far easier to manage than larger ones and less discouraging.

It's OK to make mistakes, we all make them so let yourself off the hook if you do make one. It is extremely easy to give into our cravings sometimes, especially when you are on a diet. If you do, it's OK. Just don't get so mad at yourself that you stay off the diet. You slipped up, so what? Just get back on the diet and move forward and forget about it.

A good rule of thumb is to actually schedule a time to treat yourself where you let yourself off the hook and splurge. If you schedule a regular treat, it will not only give you something to look forward to but it will also cut down on the times that you give into the cravings and fall off the diet.
