Jeans too tight? Bikini too small? Muffin top spreading? For many of us this is enough of a reason to hit the gym and possibly start eating more healthily. However, for others, finding motivation to lose weight can be more difficult. Read on for some effective tricks to get the weight loss campaign started.

Hire A Personal Trainer.

A personal trainer is an excellent way to be forced to get into shape. There is nothing quite like someone banging on your door to get you out of bed and into your running shoes. Harsh cancellation fees are also another great initiative to keep you heading to the gym for your next appointment.

A personal trainer need not need be a long term financial outlay. There will come a day when you will be able to get out of bed and want to exercise yourself. At this point, if you trust yourself to stay on the straight and narrow, you can go it alone.

Join A Weight Loss Center.

The thought of someone seeing how many pounds you have lost (or not) in the last week is plenty of motivation to keep you on your diet. Anyone brandishing tape measures or calipers will also do the trick nicely. The thought of investing all that cash for a new diet should be enough encouragement to get past the first few dietary obstacles.

Find A Workout Buddy.

Workout buddies can be invaluable for preventing you from not participating in your designated workout. Choose a mate who has similar goals to yourself. Try and select someone who is not easily deterred and distracted. You do not need a buddy who also thinks it is a better idea to stay in bed or go to the wine bar regularly, instead of hitting the gym or the bike path.

Having to explain, or justify, yet again, why you are not going to workout will eventually start to sound feeble even to your own ears.

Visit Your Doctor.

If you are more than a few pounds overweight see your doctor for a reality check. The frightening statistics for weight related issues should be enough to scare you into wanting to shed a few pounds. Heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and diabetes type 2 all increase with unnecessary poundage.


You can get yourself into gear and inspired to lose weight. Being accountable to others is an excellent option for those who may initially lack determination. Many weight loss studies have proven that dieters who are financially involved in their weight loss programs also tend to do better.

Best of all, lack of motivation won't be an issue for long. Once you get settled in the new routine for your battle of the bulge you will find yourself enjoying both your workouts and new diet.
