by : Regina Reeves

Almost anyone who has decided they want to shed some pounds would like it to happen fast. If you are one of the many people trying to figure out how to lose weight quick, the first thing you should think of is what motivates you to stick with a diet or new eating plan? The easiest and fastest way to lose weight is not just finding a great diet or exercise plan but finding a way to stick to it. Here are a few goals you might use to motivate yourself. Some might seem silly and frivolous, but all are important to someone who has been overweight for a long time and remembers how it was to feel skinny or "normal" weight.

1. Become more in shape and be able to participate in sports and outdoor activities.

2. Want to look good in that black strapless dress or that new bathing suit.

3. Be able to shop for clothes at all "normal size people" stores in the mall rather than the specialized "large size" stores or online.

4. Have more energy and stop feeling tired and run down all the time due to being overweight. Be able to go for long walks or jogging without feeling exhausted. Have enough energy to keep up with the kids.

5. Have more choices of fun and fashionable clothes. Large-size clothes are sometimes a little frumpy.

6. Show up at the class reunion looking the same size as you did in high school or college. Maybe even smaller!

7. Go horseback riding and not feel like you are too big to ride.

8. Go to the local water parks with your kids and not feel embarrassed.

9. Be able to sit down and not feel rolls of fat overflowing the sides of your jeans.

10. Being able to walk without your thighs rubbing together.

If you make a diet plan and stick to it along with exercising about 30 minutes a day, you'll be surprised how easy it is to lose weight quick and reach all your weight loss goals. Using these motivational tips can help you along the way.
