If you feel like you have heard every weight loss tip in the book, then you will like these quick and simple weight loss hacks.

Post Motivational Notes to Yourself

You are your best motivation for weight loss. Write out several motivational quotes or words on post-it notes and post them around the house, in your car, and even in your wallet. The goal is to remember the real reasons why you want to become healthy and to stay motivated in rough times.

Buy Flattering Workout Clothes

Even if you are nowhere close to your dream size, buy workout clothes that make you feel good about yourself. If you like how you look while you work out, chances are you will work out longer and more frequently. Plus, it is hard to notice all of your fitness gains and inches lost when you are wearing baggy sweatpants.

Exercise for More than Losing Weight

Exercise is great for toning the body and losing inches, but if that is your only motivation to hit the gym, you will be less likely to stick with it. However, if you find other benefits to breaking a sweat, such as more energy and more control over cravings, then you won’t want to miss your exercise time.

Make a Separate Snack Station

If you have to keep looking for a healthy snack amongst your children’s or spouse’s shelf of unhealthy snacks, then you are putting yourself at risk of temptation. Instead, make a separate snack station for yourself that makes healthier eating appealing and convenient. Some great snack ideas are pre-portioned bags of nuts, string cheese, apples, and hardboiled eggs.

Switch to a Stand up Desk

Perhaps you are having a hard time losing weight because you are sitting at a desk all day long. Try switching to a stand up desk to help boost your productivity and burn more calories throughout the day. Standing up to work instead of sitting is better for your overall health too. You will lose weight without even trying.

Workout Only Playlist

A sure way to program your brain to get fired up about exercise is to make a playlist just for your workout. Don’t listen to it any other time. This will help you get pumped and ready to burn more calories as soon as it starts playing.

Keep Mouthwash on Hand

Anytime a craving hits, just swirl a little bit of mouthwash in your mouth to get rid of it. An added bonus is that your teeth will be fresher than ever.

These weight loss tips are worth a try. There are so many tips available. You just have to find the right ones that help you be your best.
