4 Clever Ways to Hold Yourself Accountable to Your Weight Loss Plan

My blog post kind of slow these days. Sorry. I try to update as often as I can.

4 Clever Ways to Hold Yourself Accountable to Your Weight Loss Plan

I have a new love for Instagram, (let's get connected! My username is honeybeegeb) it is like my accountability partner. I'm doing a Squat Challenge this September and every time I done with my exercise, I post it on Instagram. 

There are times when I don't feel like exercising or to complete the squat challenge for the day but I do it anyway. Because I am afraid when I stop posting about the Squat challenge I have started my follower will assume I have quit and I'll bring embarrassment to myself. Or maybe I will disappoint my followers and weight loss buddy who look up to me for inspiration. I am of course nowhere near to my goal but yeah you know you just have to keep pushing yourself because you never know who you are inspiring. I mean, I know that's a silly reason to exercise. You exercise because your body needs it not because you want to makes someone happy. You exercise because exercise can improve your appearance and confidence. Because exercise is a great way to combat stress, exercise improves life expectancy, and the list goes on. 

Getting out from your comfort zone is always tough in the beginning but I believe will get easier with time. So while I try to find my rhythm I see no wrong to use this silly reason to stop myself make excuses and therefore keep myself accountable to my weight loss goal. I admit that I'm not totally focus on clean eating, there are still lacking here and there but I'm working on it. I promise you, dear body.

Alright, I keep myself accountable to weight loss plan by posting my fitness daily challenge, posting motivating pictures, quotes, reading and repost success stories on Instagram.

Here are 4 more clever ways to stay accountable to your weight loss plan:

1. Keep a food diary
I'm not a fan. I keep off-track but undeniable it is an excellent tool to keep track of the number of calories that you eat if you use it wisely. Food diary show you where you're missing out on certain types of food.

I used to record everything in my food diary after I eat. I think this is where I'm doing mistake. I always over my calorie limit. So I reject the idea of keeping a food diary because I don't see any point using it. But later I learn that the smartest way to use food diary is not to write down what you had eat, but to write what you plan to eat before you eat it. By this way your increase your awareness and you will literally think twice before you eat.

2. Save your smaller clothes
I haven't ditched my old smaller clothes because I have faith, I'll be able to fit into those again someday. I have one old dress that rather outdated but I still keep it to track my weight loss. When I fit into it I know I made progress.

3. Track your fitness
Keep a fitness log. This is what I do now. I mark an "X" on a calendar on days I exercise and "report" it on Instagram — it’s motivating to see a chain of Xs that you won’t want to break.

4. Reward yourself
This is one way to ensure that you will not give up hope and stay motivated when the road is long. Reward can increases your awareness of what you've achieved. For example, you can reward yourself a spa treatment for every 10 pounds you lose.
