The Bible is full of inspiring stories of courage and faith. When you feel like giving up, turn to scripture for motivation and strength. Philippians 4:13 reminds us that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Meditating on this Scripture will help remind you that, with God’s help, anything is possible.
Mental Strategy #2: Find an Accountability Partner
Reaching your weight loss goals can be easier when you have someone to keep you accountable. Finding an accountability partner when trying to lose weight is an essential step for how to stay motivated. This type of partner needs to be understanding and honest, having similar goals as you and someone who can provide you with continuous encouragement throughout the process. Picking a friend or family member who will help keep you on track is a great way to ensure that you are staying focused on your health goals. An accountability partner can help provide motivation by providing positive reinforcement, give ideas to jump start balanced meals, discuss diet tips and how long different exercises typically last. Having a consistent source of knowledge and accountability can lead to setting yourself up for success when it comes to fitness and health.
Losing weight isn’t easy but with the right mindset and motivation it is possible! Remember that God has promised His strength for all things we set our minds to (Philippians 4:13). Stay focused by setting achievable short-term goals and enlisting an accountability partner if needed. Most importantly, make sure to draw inspiration from His Word as you travel on your journey towards reaching your health goals!
