Hey guys! Welcome back to my channel.
In this video, I wanted to share with youguys some reasons WHY you should stay motivated and some really great benefits that come fromreaching your goal weight and following through with a healthy nutrition plan, so if you wantto hear about those reasons on why you should be motivated, stay tuned.
(Intro music) You may want to lose weightbecause of different health reasons or perhaps vanity reasons.
You just want to feel better about the wayyou look, so there's a lot of different reasons why it's great to be in shape and feel better.
Obviously, you gain confidence.
It's really nice to be able to go places,speak in front of people if you have to and feel good about the way you look, feel goodabout the way you're presenting yourself.
And not be self conscious allowing that tohold you back from, you know, things that you can do, that you're perfectly capableof, so confidence is just invaluable, it is just one of those things that I think we reallytake for granted.
If you've never struggle with self esteemor body image then you may not understand but for most of us, I think we do strugglewith that so gaining confidence is a huge reason why you should stick to your plan andfollow through to the end until you reach your goals.
Accomplishing what you set out to do, justbrings you so much satisfaction so following through and all of those things really givesyou a boost to your confidence, knowing that you can do certain things that you never thoughtyou could do before.
Another really great benefit to sticking toyour weight loss plan and staying motivated is because you get more energy.
When we eat junk food, fast food, soda, highsugar content, our bodies tend to just start feeling sluggish.
Those foods contain little to no nutrientsand our bodies just can't take it after awhile so we just start feeling tired all the time.
When we eat good and we have vegetables andfruits, food that is grown from the ground from nature, natural foods, whole foods, thenthat gives our body a chance to be rejuvenated and thrive like we were meant to thrive.
We're not meant to sit around and feel sluggishand just down all the time.
You know, we're meant to be vibrant and bealive.
So losing weight gives you more energy andit helps you to sleep better too.
Recently, I've started getting up at 3 inthe morning just completely starving, to the point where my stomach hurts, I have pain,the pain is what wakes me up so I started reading what could be causing that and onething is stress.
I think stress causes a lot of different problemsfor most of us but aside from stress, another reason was problems with your blood sugar.
I'm not diabetic but I have been eating mostof my calories in the evening.
So that would make sense for me.
Because I take in all that food and the majorityof my food in the evening, that tends to raise my sugar to the point that it does enablea sugar crash and that's what's leaving me starving and just really, really hungry at3 in the morning.
So what I need to do instead is eat more mealsfrequently throughout the day.
That's going to keep my blood sugar regulatedand hopefully improve my sleeping patterns.
Another awesome reason to stay motivated andstay on track with your weight loss goals is that it gives you improved mental and physicalstrength.
Day to day tasks like going grocery shopping,bring in the groceries from the cra, picking up the dog food bag, picking up the kids,you know, just running around the house crazy, burning calories.
I think it's just really takes a lot of theload off your day when you can perform those physical activities with little to no problem.
Improved mental strength also comes from reachingyour goals and sticking to your weight loss plan so a really good reason to stay motivatedis just the improved mental status I think that you get when you work out on a consistentbasis and when you eat the right foods.
I think a lot of us know already that eatingjunk food, eating just fast food, too much sugar, too many carbs, it causes us to bedepressed.
We really need to try to avoid the fast food,avoid the soda because those added sugars, the preservatives, all the chemicals and everythingthat's in there to make you addicted to the food and make you just want more and morebut give you no nutrients, that's what we need to stay away from.
And when you do that, you start feeling bettermentally and you start feeling a little bit more of a clarity day to day.
You don't feel like you're in a fog just weigheddown.
Another reason, which is one of my favoritesreasons is an improved immune system.
Staying motivated and sticking to your weightloss plan gives you a better immune system.
You are less likely prone to disease, you'reless prone to sickness and you're also less prone to injury when you improve your physicalstrength.
So a stronger immune system is really important,especially in the day in age that we live in where we just have so many things surroundingus that are cancer causing and just wrecking havoc on our health.
You want to do the most you can, in your powerto strengthen your immune system and be the healthiest version of you that you can beso you can fight off all of those things that are coming against us in our atmosphere, inour food, all of those areas of life these days.
Another great reason to stay motivated isso you can help other people.
Other people love to be inspired, other peoplelove to see other people doing good! So that's a really great reason, that's afun reason.
Educate other people, educate your familyso that you guys can all live a healthier, happier life.
You know, that's a really great reason tostay motivated.
And then of course there's the vanity reasonwhich is one of my favorite reasons.
I think just because I struggled a lot withmy self esteem.
I'm very much a girly girl.
I wear make up and so I love all of that kindof stuff so vanity is one of those things that is important to me.
I also want to reflect a healthier lifestyle,I want to reflect that no, I don't eat junk food.
You know, I don't participate in that kindof environment or those things.
And that's something to be proud of.
It feels really great to know that you'redisciplined and you can choose the better option.
The healthier we are, the longer we live.
the longer we're there for our kids and thelonger we're just here to help impact this world in a better way.
Today's Saturday but I might not be able toget this video up until tomorrow, which would be Sunday but today is my weigh in day andfor me personally, today I did not lose any weight and my measurements didn't change eitherso I was feeling a little bit discouraged and I started thinking about all the reasonswhy I should keep going, why I should stay motivated so that's why I wanted to sharethis with you guys today.
I personally kind of dealt with this justtoday so with that said, it does happen.
It happens to all of us so I encourage youguys to keep going.
Keep pushing towards your goals.
The effort and the work IS worth it, I promiseyou.
Make it fun, do something you enjoy.
Find something you enjoy, you know, it istrial and error with cooking, with your food prep, with all of it, with exercising so ifyou just press on, you will find probably a million ways that don't work for you butin the end, you will find a way that does.
