People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals / that is, goals that do not inspire them.Anthony Robbins
1. Keep on saying "So That"
Ask yourself "Why do I want to lose weight" and after you come up with a reason why… Just keep on saying SO THAT.
For example - Why Do you want to lose weight…
The more times you say SO THAT = the more and more motivated you'll become to lose weight.
2. Play the "If I Do" and the "If I don't game"
To Play the "If I Do" and the "If I don't game" …
You're going to take 2 sheets of paper and on the top of 1 sheet of paper you're going to write…
"These are all the GOOD things that will start happening to me tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, or even 2,5, or 10 years from now
IF I DO Take action now to lose weight" and…
Then you'll fill up that sheet with every single GOOD thing you can imagine that will happen in the near & distant future If You DO take action now to lose weight so for example - you'll probably write things like…
On the top of the other sheet of paper - you'll write…
"These are all the bad things that will start happening to me tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, or even 2,5, or 10 years from now
IF I DON'T Take action now to lose weight" and…
Then you'll fill up that sheet with every single BAD thing you can imagine that will happen in the near & distant future If You DON'T take action now to lose weight so for example - you'll probably write things like…
Once you have filled out your IF I DO & If I DON'T sheets…
You want read these sheets every 3-to-5 days but… Every time you feel like giving up on your weight loss goals or dreams to Look Good Naked – Just take 10 minutes and read your IF I DO & If I DON'T sheets and I guarantee you…
STOP & take at least 30 minutes to fill up those sheets.
3. Make a bet with yourself
You can make a bet with yourself or other people to GUARANTEE that you will lose weight & Look Good naked and…
Here's some examples of bets you can make to make sure you will REALLY want to lose weight or else!…
The more extreme the bet is or the more you have to lose = the greater chance you'll actually reach your weight loss goal and think about like this…
If there was a chance you could lose your house, your car and all your money if you did not lose 50 pounds in 10 months (which is a reasonable amount of time) then you'll probably end up losing 50 pounds in 7 months or less!
4. Make excuses to win & Don't make excuses to lose
STOP making lame excuses NOT to lose weight like…
It's easy to make excuses to lose and be a loser (and a loser is someone who doesn’t even try) but…
It's also easy to make excuses to win and be a winner and a winner is someone who gets off their ass and gives at least 1% so for example…
Use that time to Look Good Naked and…
Even if you are a single parent with 8 kids and 3 jobs - That is sill not an excuse to give up and be a loser because…
5. Let nothing stop You From losing weight!
What's stopping YOU right now at this very moment from losing weight and looking the best you can?
Write down everything that's stopping you from reaching your weight loss goals and then beside each thing that's stopping you… Make a plan to eliminate the problem so For example…
DON'T EVER falsely believe that your genetics are keeping you from losing weight
Write down whatever's stopping you from losing weight and then STOP IT before it makes you even fatter and…
The only reason why you shouldn't lose weight is because you simply don't want to lose weight.
6. Set deadlines and then reward yourself
For example… If your big weight loss goal is to lose 100 pounds in 10 months… Then you can set 10 deadlines where you have to lose 10 pounds every month for the next 10 months so…
Let's say on the way to your big goal to lose 100 pounds in 10 months you actual lose 12 pounds in your 1st month… You can reward yourself by buying yourself a new dress or going out to a movie and please… DO NOT reward yourself by sabotaging your weight loss plan or diet by eating stuff that's going to put weight back on and remember this…
The greater the reward is you have planned for yourself the higher your motivation will be to lose weight
7. Set deadlines and then punish yourself
If you don't meet your deadlines you have to punish yourself - so for example…
Let's say you miss your deadline to lose 10 pounds a month by losing only 9 pounds… You have to punish yourself by not watching TV for a week or by not going shopping for a month and…
Along with the reward (see motivation tip #6 above) and the punishment for meeting and not meeting your deadlines…
You can be sure you'll stay highly motivated to lose weight or whatever else you set your mind to.
8. Post a Picture Everywhere
Post a picture of what you want to look like after you lose weight everywhere you can so If you were skinny in high school… Post your old high school pictures everywhere and if you always had a weight problem or if you don't have any pictures then…
9. Get a magazine and…
10. Hang out with skinny peopleThere's a saying that goes like this… "If you hang out with 9 broke people -- You'll probably end up being the 10th broke person but…
If you hang out with 9 rich people -- you'll probably end up being the 10th rich person and the same goes true for losing weight.
Hang out with just skinny people and you'll pick up on their habits for staying slim. You don't have to dump all of your overweight friends - you just shouldn't let their bad habits influence you.
11. Talk to your future self
Imagine how good you'll look in the next 1-to-6 months from now with all the good things that will happen to you from #1 & #2 above and Every time you feel like cheating on your diet, not working out or just giving up…
STOP & Ask your future self what he or she did to look good naked and I bet you they'll tell you…
If that doesn't work…
Imagine your future self out on a date with that man or woman you always wanted to be with and ask them those same questions and…
If that doesn't work…
12. Remember the CBA's
If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad. Denis Waitley

I'm a bit confused about my body...
I'm 23 years old, 5"4 at 135lbs - the same weight I was when I was 19, after my first year in college not working out, binge drinking 5 days a week, and eating at a buffet 2 times a day every day. I had gone up to 135lbs from 118 in about 10 months.
Since I lost weight to 128lbs, which didn't take too much effort, I have never gone back to eating anywhere near as badly. On a diet of 1,200 cals a day, drinking once a week, exercising a 4-5 times a week, I got down to 122. But since then I had relaxed, and the weight crept up on me very slowly... over a year and a half.
But now I'm back to 135 - even though
I've been eating clean, healthy (lots of fruit, veggies, home cooked meals, lo carb, little processed food), and between 1,000 - 1,500 calories a day and moderately exercising 3-4 times a week since August! I've gone back down to 129, but just one week of eating 1,800 - 2,000 cals a day - but paired with LOTS of outdoor activity - makes me gain it all back! And no, I haven't lost any inches off my waist, so I highly doubt it's muscle.
What gives? Is my metabolism shot because I'm old? I don't get it.
December 04, 2013
first of all how are you tracking those calories and are you certain you're in the 1500 calorie range
December 04, 2013
I track using My Fitness Pal.
Admittedly, I allow myself alcohol once a week on Friday or Saturday and have 2-3 cheat meals (not in large portions, though) on the weekends. But I did the same a year ago when I got down to 122, and it didn't cause any problems for me.

Punish yourself? Research has repeatedly shown that negative motivation is not successful. The overweight, and the obese have been punished enough!

1 will I lose my results if I stop doing them?
2 where does all the fat go?????
August 24, 2013
1. ye, but only do it about once every 2-3 weeks once you get the results you want
2. it's not a fat loss exercise. you will still need diet and exercise to lose any fat

Hi, I have been battling back and forth with my weight. I tried phentermine pills about two years ago lost a total of 25pds; however since then I have gained it all back plus some what is a good way to loose weight without having to result to diet pills. I'm currently 37 my height 5'3 and I weight 167pds would love to be around 115.
July 07, 2013
Hmm I'm 5' 8.5" and I'm about 147lbs
If I loose weight, I probably won't be able to stop and I might end up in hospital. Last time I tried I ended up loosing 37lb and avoided hospital but next time I might not be so lucky.
If I stay the same weight, I'll be happy and more attractive. All I need to do is get some exercise and work on my muscle tone, even if I gain weight.

I doubt that anyone has ever actually proven that saying about the 9+1 theory. Why would people who are rich
keep company with someone who is not rich? Just so the
not-rich person could become like them? I don't think so.
It is not in the interests of the rich to hang out with the not-
rich. This sounds noble and altruistic, but it is nonsense.

Hi Adrian, my problem for motivation is that I love food, I am a cake decorator/dessert baker so I love to make food, sometimes I do get really motivated and go on a strict diet, exercise and eat really well, then for some reason I slip up by either going to a restaurant and I really want a certain pasta, or I go out and I am starving and there is nothing else to eat so I just eat whatever is there, or the most common problem I face is, if I have a cheat meal - I get it, it's okay but then I think to myself, we'll since I've had one cheat meal, I will go to the store and have chocolate and chips etc then I won't be able to finish all that junk, so I leave it for tommorow, since I don't want to waste that junk food, I eat it that day too, but since I had to eat the left over junk, I ha e already wrecked that day too, so I might aswell get more junk, and it becomes this cycle an I don't know what to do!
June 12, 2013

I'm 13 and almost 200 pounds. It's horrible! But, if you do stupid (at least 20 every morning) And if you run for at least an hour at least 6 days a week. Oh and if you burn more calories than you eat every day, you lose weight at a nice pace

Hey, I'm 21 and weigh 220lbs. I know that's too much and I'm 5"1. I know I cant lose all of it real fast. So, I want to lose it in 10-12 months and I want to lose 100-120lbs.
I really want to lose weight. I've started walking 1.5 miles in morning and 1.5 miles in evening. I'm also doing aerobics for 1 hour and Treadmill and Abs exercise for 1 hour at noon everyday.
April 16, 2013
I just wanted to say thank you for the suggestions you have given on this page. I have spent months trying to get my eating under control, after having lost 60 pounds and at this point having gained back 50 of them. After trying your idea of the "If I Do/Don't" pages, I have actually been able to stick with my goals because its always easy to remind myself why I want this so much.

Hi I'm a 16 year old boy and im 5'8" and weigh 195 lbs.
I want to lose 20lbs before school ends which is in 2 months and then I want to lose 30lbs during the summer which lasts about 3 months. I hate my manboobs and my poor running skills. I really wants abs cause im sick and tired of always being fat my whole life. I know I have a problem with cravings it's more like a food addiction. I sometimes workout for like 2 weeks and i lose maybe 3-4lbs and I feel good but then I go back to being lazy. I know I can get a six pack and stuff like that if I try. Please help me accomplish my goal.
April 07, 2013
I am 21 years old and 5'7" and I weigh 226:-( I have been walking five days a week for two months and I have gained weight:-( it's not that I eat to much or don't exercise but it all started when I graduated high school. I stopped running track and then I discovered McDonalds which my mom never let us have because we didn't eat out. So after eating out my whole freshman year of college I hate it. So even though I'm back to eating healthy I'm not losing weight. And now it's even harder because I'm married now and my husband loves fried foods and sweets because of his parents cooking. Please help! I am soooo tired of constantly worrying about how I look. I have barely any clothes I can fit and now my husbands job has moved us to California and I feel even worse! Please help me lose this weight! Thank you!
