2011 is counting down to lower its curtain down. How about your goal to lose weight? Have you lose weight successfully or have you give up to lose weight long before you achieved one? It's honestly never easy to lose weight. If you have failed to lose weight, do not feel disheartened. Let's try all over again to lose weight.

Here are 10 tricky weight loss strategies from Weights Diets! to help you stay motivated to lose weight. Select which of these you can use yourself to focus on and maintain your motivation to lose weight.

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #1 - Keep And Display All Your Old Pictures
Humans respond quickly to visual stimulation. If you see a red light you stop on a dime (unless you're adventurous). Images always trigger responses. Keeping and displaying your old photographs will give you that extra kick needed to attack the gym!

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #2 - Look At The Transformations Of Others
An inspirational story is always good to get the juices flowing. Reading the story of someone who has lost 100 lbs of fat and can now play with their grandkids moves the soul (and provides some motivation to reach your goals). Use the transformations as fuel to hit the gym!

Kim Cattrall has a favorite pair of jeans that she uses to gauge her weight. If it getting too tight, she will start to exercise more and eat less dessert.

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #3 - Buy Clothes At Your Target Size
Purchase some clothes a size down (or up) and put them in the front of the closet. Spend a good bit (around $200 or so). The first week you may not be able to get those pants past your knees. The second week you should see those pants starting to creep up. The third week even further. Eventually, they'll snap onto your new firm and trim body.

Contrary to popular myth, bodybuilding women are using steroids and trained for years to produce that kind of muscle mass. It's not a result from lifting a couple of weights.

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #4 - Chart Your Strength Gains
Strength training is important while losing weight. It's the lean body mass that's burning calories day in and day out. Mike Adams, Health Ranger in Natural News suggest that if you manage to keep all of that muscle mass and bone density in place while you are losing body fat, then you can maintain the high metabolism that's associated with that lean body mass even while you are dropping body fat.

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #5 - Contact People You've Lost Contact With
We all enjoy admiration (some more than others). People who haven't seen you in a while will be taken by surprise. Believe me they'll stand there with jaws dropped in utter shock. They'll ask for your advice. They'll praise your new shape. Most of all they'll praise you for what you've done. Praise makes us feel good and want to push it to even higher levels in the gym.

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #6 - Bring Others Along For The Ride
Inspire someone else to join the gym. They welcome your advice and encouragement with open arms! Allow them into your routine. Show them the ropes. Push them towards their goals. Their progress and enthusiasm is contagious and will infect you as well. Few feelings can rival the enthusiasm of a newcomer realizing results.

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #7 - Shout Your Story From The Mountaintops
Never shy away from the opportunity to tell others what you have done. People love a feel good story. Those who have yet to pull one off treat body transformations like miracles. When you tell your story start from the beginning and recall all those emotions that drove you.

o Remember being angry?
o Remember being fed up?
o Remember making that change for good?

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #8 - Keep Your Workout Routine Fresh
Boredom equals death. If you're bored with a relationship the train is going to stop at the next station. If you're bored with a game you stop playing. If you're bored with your workout routine you'll slog through it.
Vary your rep schemes, exercises, and break timing to add variety and spice. Try burnouts, strip sets, cable machines, dumbbells, weighted chins, and isometrics to spice it up. Breaking the monotony makes the gym fun. Keep it fresh and you'll be excited as a result.

GoalsOnTrack is a powerful tool to help you set and achieve a weight loss goal.

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #9 - Get Aggressive With Goals

Grown tired of 2-3 lbs a week of weight loss? Challenge yourself one week and go for 5. Tighten up your diet and put your all into your sessions. Explode through every rep. Add 30 minutes to your cardio. Eat super clean. Enjoy the results of your aggressive week. Aggressive goals are great when managed properly. Sprinkling in a frenetic week is always good to get the pistons firing.

Tricky Weight Loss Strategy #10 - Work Around People With Top Physiques
Being around top-notch bodies provides a challenge. Seeing a well-built person provides true inspiration. These people are walking knowledge bases as well and they are MORE THAN HAPPY to share with you. Being around people who are better makes you rise to the occasion.
