How To Prepare Yourself For A Weight Loss Challenge?
A weight loss challenge allows you to set a weight loss target for yourself and work towards your goal. It motivates & challenges you to work hard & be successful & we strongly recommend you to invite your friends to participate with you, to increase the level of fun. Here are some general tips to help you to prepare for one.
1) Set Reasonable Target
On average, a person can lose 1 kg a week if he does it correctly. However, make sure you condition your body first & set a realistic & reasonable weight loss target so that you can see & be satisfied with your results along the way. High & hard-to-achieve target can be tough & potentially make you lose confidence & give up easily.
2) Get Ready Your Tools
Tools like a measuring tape for your waist, weighing scale, exercise apparels, a pair of running shoes with good cushioning, a small notebook for you to write down your food journals, step tracker to keep track of the number of steps you have run & amount of calories burnt, will be useful during your weight loss journey.
3) Condition Your Body Well
Never start a weight loss challenge without conditioning your body first. Body conditioning helps to build up your body stamina & strength as well as watching over your diet, for a start, so that your body can be ready, thus making it easier for you to enter the challenge with confidence.
4) Make Use Of Social Media
This works for me well! Announce your challenge through social media & let your friends cheer you up. Post your progress every week to show them your commitment towards this challenge. If you are successful eventually, announce to the world to motivate yourself to maintain your weight thereon.
5) Read Up & Work out Your Strategies
Failing to plan is planning to fail. Read up more about how you can achieve your goals easier & keep yourself motivated all the time. Work out your strategies & assess how realistic they are. If festive seasons are around the corner, you may want to delay your challenge after the season, to avoid food temptations during the celebration.
My tip for you, if you wish to increase your chances of winning the challenge, is to be well prepared for it. You need to be persistent, resistant & consistent, and that’s where discipline is all about!
