Sarah's advice to anyone trying to start their own weight-loss journey is to understand that motivation is fleeting and that's why so many people give up. When it comes down to it, it's about being disciplined and prepared. "Know that you're going to wake up one day and hate the idea of sticking to your meal plan or that getting to the gym sounds like the last thing you want to do, and plan for it," Sarah said.
Save some motivational quotes or pictures on your phone, write down your "why," and read it when you need to. Or Sarah suggested you can even just type "weight-loss motivation" into YouTube and watch a few videos, then get it done, regardless of how you feel.
