Feeling a little bit more motivated to stay on your weightloss journey yet? Still need some convincing? Here is part 2 with some more reasons to continue on your TLC-Program and resist temptation!
6. Stress relief:
If you checked off losing weight from your to-do list, you’ve already got one less thing to stress about. Really though, the things you do to lose weight, eating a balanced diet, exercising consistently, and getting lots of sleep, are also some of the greatest ways to alleviate stress and anxiety. And imagine not having to stress about looking good in summer clothes or that special family picture!?
7. More Money: it may not immediately be obvious, but you will save a lot if money by eating clean as per the TLC-Program! By cooking more, eating no junk food and snacks, and skipping that regular ‘drink with friends’, or daily ‘glass or 3 of wine’, not only are you inching closer and closer to your weight-loss goals, but you are saving money! It’s simple math, really. The less ‘rubbish’ you eat, the less you spend.
8. More friends:
With your size shrinking, you can expect your social circle to grow in number. You will find it easier to ‘join in’ and may become more active. In doing so you put yourself in more social situations. As a result of participating in more than just a Netflix marathon on your couch, you meet more people and your social calendar grows.
9. Your significant other might lose weight, too:
Ever feel inspired (or guilty) by your partner’s incessant need to wake up at 5 a.m. to hit the gym and their refusal to grab chips or pasta when they run to the store? Well if you haven’t, then your partner may be the one feeling that push from you simply by bearing witness to your own transformation. If you’ve been successful at losing weight and continue to live a healthier lifestyle, chances are your significant other will follow suit. Perhaps your parents, siblings, or close friends will feel similarly inspired! (Remember you can get rewarded for referring friends to TLC!)
10. Fewer colds: Prone to regular colds and infections? Nothing strengthens your immune system better than leading a healthy lifestyle. Getting your eight hours every night, fueling your body with fresh produce and lean protein, and working up a sweat will pump your immunity up far better than sipping on an orange, fizzy drink could.
11: Improved memory:
Weight-loss benefits go far beyond the physical. Losing weight and being more active boosts brainpower quite a bit. Research has shown that your memory gets sharper when total bodyweight has been reduced. So not only will you be happier, you’ll also remember that thing you really needed to do today, tomorrow, and the next.
12. Better wardrobe: The ultimate perk of peeling off the kg’s is that behind closed doors you’re going to look really great! However, since we all can’t (or shouldn’t) walk around in our birthday suits all the time, it’s a good thing your wardrobe will reap the benefits of your weight loss, too. Losing weight often gives people the confidence to not only experiment more with style, but want to show off their weight loss with outfits that display the physique they worked so hard to get.
