10 Motivational Tips to Keep You Healthy

1. Feel Good About Yourself Today
No matter where you are health wise, always feel good about yourself. Surround yourself with people who are positive and actually try to help you with your cause.

2. Rethink Your Role Model
While Barbie was fun to look up to when you were young, you have to be realistic. Look to someone who worked hard to get results, like a fitness instructor or a competitive bodybuilder. This shows you can do it, too.

3. Know What Makes You Overeat
What causes you to overeat. Maybe you're eating to cope with something or you're simply bored. Try to find a deal with it or getting some healthy alternatives.

4. Make Simple Daily Change
Start slow and build. You don't have to go all the way in so soon. Be smart and make small changes that have long-term positive impact.

5. Find a Cheering Section
It's always nice to have a support system. Have a few people that not only hold you accountable for your progress, but cheers you on to help motivate you.

6. Forgive Yourself
You might slip up on vacation but don't blame yourself. It's okay to indulge a bit on your down time. You can always go back to a disciplined diet later.

7. Never Go Hungry
Don't starve yourself. When you Stat going hungry, it can lead to overeating later in the day. You don't want to eat heavy when you're least active.

8. Remember That Change Takes Time
Don't get discouraged when you don't see results immediately. Find out good habits that will change the way your body looks gradually. It'll make for more permanent weight loss.

9. Move Around More Today; Sit Less
One of the best things you can do is just move around. It could be something simple, such as taking a walk around the neighborhood or using the stairs at work.

10. Celebrate Each Day's Journey
Remember to enjoy the moments. Maybe you did 5 extra pushups or ran for an extra 10 minutes. These are all great accomplishments toward your goals.
