But diet and exercise alone is not complete if you don't have the self-discipline and the motivation to success your weight loss program. Jennifer Lopez is probably going to be twice as motivated as you are to lose weight as fast as possible because her job as an entertainer require her to look good so with that extra added pressure (or motivation) she'll push herself harder than you will to lose weight.

How to get motivated to lose weight fast? I want to share my stumble at nowloss.com and I hope it will help you to reach your weight loss goal.
1. Keep on saying "So That"
Understanding your purpose and objective to lose weight, will help you to stick on the weight loss plan. Write on your diet journal "Why do I want to lose weight" and after you come up with a reason why, just keep on saying SO THAT.
I want to lose weight to look better SO THAT I can feel more confident about myself SO THAT I can be the best looking person at my high school reunion SO THAT I can see the surprised looks on the faces of my classmates SO THAT I may be able to go on a date with the person I had a crush on in high school.

2.Play the "If I Do" and the "If I don't game"
Take 2 sheets of paper and on the top of 1 sheet of paper you're going to write. The 1st sheet of paper you write a title like this:
"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
Then you'll fill up that sheet with every single GOOD thing you can imagine that will happen in the near and distant future If You DO take action now to lose weight so for example - you'll probably write things like:
- I will see that I've lost 2+ pounds by the end of the week...
- In 2-to-5 months other people will tell me how much better I look...
- I'll be shopping for that new dress that'll accentuate my new hourglass figure
The 2nd sheet of paper you write the contra of the 1st sheet.
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 DO NOT TAKE ACTION NOW TO LOSE WEIGHT
Then you'll fill up that sheet with every single BAD thing you can imagine that will happen in the near and distant future If You DON'T take action now to lose weight. For example - you'll probably write something things like this:
- I'll still be wearing all black clothes to make me look thin...
- I'll still be scared to go out in public because of my weight...
- Other people will call me fat behind my back...
Every time you feel like giving up on your weight loss goals take 10 minutes and read your IF I DO and IF I DON'T sheets to motivated you once again to lose weight.

3. Make a bet with yourselfHere's some examples of bets you can make to make sure you will REALLY want to lose weight like tell everyone at your workplace that you will eat a HUGE can of DOG Food in front of everyone if you don't lose 10 pounds before a certain event.
STOP making lame excuses NOT to lose weight like "I can't workout cause I get sweaty" or "I don't have time to lose weight". If you don't have time – make time! because you always do a good job of making time to watch LOST, American Idol, Dancing with the stars or whatever TV show you waste your time on.
5 . Set deadlines to your weight loss goal
Let's say on the way to your big goal to lose 100 pounds in 10 months your actual lose is 12 pounds in your 1st month. You can reward yourself by buying yourself a new dress or going out to a movie. DO NOT reward yourself by sabotaging your weight loss plan or diet by eating stuff that's going to put weight back on.

If you don't meet your deadlines you have to punish yourself for example punish yourself by not watching TV for a week or by not going shopping for a month.
6. Get a magazine and...
- Get a picture of yourself and cut out just the face and make sure you're smiling in the picture.
- Take your smiling face and place it over the face of the person on the cover.
- Make copies of the magazine cover and post it everywhere in your house and make a special note under it saying, "I will get a sexy body just like this cover model and when I do, I will laugh in the surprised faces of all the people who said I could never look like this".
