Deciding to make lifestyle changes for your health doesn't always guarantee weight loss. In fact, weight loss does not need to be the center of your fitness or health goals!

The idea of weight loss can lead to mental health issues and even result in making diet choices that end up being bad for your health. So what are some tips from people who've reached their goals?

1. Start in your comfort zone

You don't have to throw yourself into a gym full of people from day one, especially if that's not what you’re comfortable with! Do whatever makes you feel comfortable, even if it's just walking around the block of your home!

If you’re craving something, don’t deprive yourself of it, you want your journey to be a healthy one. Your diet should also be one you can stick to long-term, so don’t go cutting the junk food because when you go back, you won’t like the results!

3. Give yourself a break

If you overdo the junk food or even oversleeping, it is not the end of the world! You deserve a break; you deserve to lie in and even the junk food, so why deprive yourself?

“One bad meal will not make you obese,”

Shannon McDaniel-Posey.

Many people let their social lives suffer because of their diet or exercise routines. They fear breaking the schedule, but it’s completely okay to let yourself have a break once in a while; it won't deter you from your goal!

The road to weight loss is dark and scary, especially when you're on your own! Find people who think the way you do and help keep you focused on your goals!

"I've managed to find like-minded people who battle the same demons and who slay similar dragons.”

Cara Lynn

Support helps keep you focused, and sometimes all you need is a bit of encouragement to make it to your gym sesh! So gather your friends and family and even follow Instagram accounts to keep you motivated.

Stay focused on today; doing what you can today leaves your tomorrows open for newer and more challenging opportunities! If you don’t feel like doing a whole workout, do what you can!

6. The difference comes from the small changes

You don’t have to start heavy lifting in your first week of gyming; you can progress to that point when you have the strength. You don’t even have to cut too much out of your diet; you just need to make healthier substitutions!

If the change is what scares you, then start by making smaller changes. The little things make all the difference, so if it scares you to commit to the gym, then start with walking until you're confident enough to go to the gym.

7. It’s not too late

You just have to keep moving forward and stop worrying about how far away you are from your goal. You don’t want to be overwhelmed and quitting when you can be just whelmed and winning!

8. Don’t starve yourself

While you might look to diets to cut your weight down drastically, most of them involve stringent diet regimens that you can hardly stray from. It's not worth it if you're going hungry!

"To the people who look to me, please do not starve yourselves. I did not starve myself. I fed myself greens and water and fruit and protein and sunlight. You don’t have to do that to be beautiful or healthy. That was my way. You can do life your way."

Lizzo

9. Eat your fruit
