Although self-motivation is a very important part of HCG diet success, you also need to reward yourself for sticking to the HCG diet and losing weight!
Rewards can come in lots of different shapes and sizes—perhaps seeing the weight fall off on a daily basis will be reward enough for you—but if you need a bigger reward to keep you motivated, why not promise yourself a treat at the end of the HCG diet, such as a pair of shoes you have coveted for ages, or a trendy pair of skinny jeans in a size you did not dare dream of fitting into a year ago?
It is easy to become discouraged while dieting, no matter how positive you are in the beginning. Some days will feel like one step forwards and three steps backwards, and it is during these testing times that the thought of a few HCG diet rewards might offer enough of an incentive to push you onwards and upwards.
What happens if I lose faith in my diet dreams?
Everybody has their ups and downs during the HCG diet, but the important thing is not to lose heart if you have a bad day and cheat a little. Don’t berate yourself too hard if you feel like tossing the towel into the ring and giving up. It takes a strong person to even start a diet, so remind yourself how far you have come already!
Just think how much better you will feel in the morning and look forward to your very own special HCG diet reward, whatever it is that you have planned as a special end of diet treat (just make sure it isn’t a blow out at the nearest KFC!).
For some, the reason they are on the diet is reward enough. Losing weight for a special occasion such as a wedding or holiday is often a massive incentive to stick to the HCG diet and lose that weight. So if that sounds like you, stick the wedding invite or a page torn out from the holiday brochure on the fridge and use it to remind yourself of what HCG diet rewards are coming your way soon!
How do I eliminate my diet distractions?
Temptation is often around every corner (just ask Tiger Woods), so you cannot avoid it, but what you can do is minimize your chances of being caught in a situation whereby you are faced with temptations likely to sabotage your HCG diet success. If this means avoiding your favorite restaurant or café, or saying “no” to boozy nights out with your friends, then you must accept that this is only a temporary situation and deal with it.
The HCG diet will be over in the few short weeks, so in the meantime, utilize all the support from friends and family that you can muster, give yourself a strict talking to, and then look forward to wearing the new slim-line dress or pair of trousers you have hanging up in the wardrobe!
