When I played college football, I was in the best shape of my life. Yes, I was younger but that was not the only reason. I was in a competitive sport at a high level, yes that is the case as well. However, the main reason for this was twofold: working out was mandatory. That is the simple answer. However, the fact that I was surrounded by forty other men, many of which were in great shape, that helped to motivate myself, at least not to be the weakest member of the team.
On the team, I was the kicker. Therefore, lightening speed and the ability to bench press a small house was not needed or expected. I walked into that weight room a skinny kid who weighed less than 180 lbs and I left that season, trimmer by at least ten pounds and at least ten pounds of muscle added as well. What were the reasons for this and how can this be implemented in your life? Here are some tips for a successful weight loss diet.
After I stopped playing football and I got married, I began to gain weight. I was not playing football and with me being married, I no longer had the same desire to stay in shape to the same degree as I once did. This is a natural change for everyone, regardless of their gender once they get married. Even though the two events happened years apart from each other, they speak to the same thing: motivation or the lack thereof, to do anything that is hard to accomplish.
In any venture, it is important to surround yourself with people who have achieved success. This will help serve as both a motivation and a realization that your goals are not as impossible as you might think. It is important when going to the gym or simply trying to eat better, to surround yourself with people have the desire, knowledge and ability to see something to its rightful conclusion, when trying to lose weight. Not only will they motivate you through the rough patches, but by seeing them as a example towards what can be accomplished when one puts their mind to something, this too will help you get over the hump.
When you find the right sources of motivation when beginning a work out plan, you will see how very important this is to your success. Keep your mind occupied and your goals clearly outlined and you will see positive results sooner than you think! I hope that these tips for a successful diet were helpful to you.
