Motivation is a driving force in any weight loss plan. No matter how great your diet plan is, no matter how effective your exercise regime is, all these things are useless if you do not have the motivation necessary to start and maintain your weight loss program.
If there is lack of motivation you will see that when you start a weight loss program you will find it hard to stick to it. Motivation is necessary at the start of the plan in order to prepare yourself mentally in implementation of the plan and changing your life accordingly.
Motivation is equally important during the weight loss program. Once you adopt a new regime of weight loss you are bombarded with factors from inside your body as well as environment which can be termed as motivation buster.
