One thing people starting, or already on a weight loss journey tend to do, is to forget how to hold yourself accountable.
Even if you are already on a journey to lose weight, and you realize you have hit a plateau, not seeing the results you want to see, or starting to lose motivation. You need to light a little fire under your butt, lol.
WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN. Either buy a weight loss/food & water journal, or get creative and make one.
Write down everything you eat and drink that day, even the dressings, sauces, toppings, ETC. Anything that has calories.
Another Idea. Post everything you ate in 1 day on a social media site. Make a collage and post it on Instagram or Facebook. If you wouldn’t feel comfortable posting it, then you shouldn’t be eating it. You would also be giving others good ideas as to how to eat healthy. There are lots of positive reasons for posting your health and fitness things o n social media. You never know who you are inspiring. You can also make a page just for your weight loss journey. There is such a large community of people going through the same things you are. Follow eachother, and help to keep each other motivated, get recipe ideas, ETC.
These are great ways to hold yourself accountable. Track, Track, TRACK! You would be surprised how quickly you clean up your act or see a change
