Before you get started in your efforts, review these tips for success. There are certain attitudes and actions that will help you form a positive framework for success.
- Throw away your scale, lock it in the closet, or give it away.
- Make small, realistic changes that naturally fit into your lifestyle.
- Think positively, acknowledge your progress no matter how small. Reward yourself for successful changes.
- Ask for the support you need from family and friends.
- Set realistic and attainable long-term goals. When goals are unrealistic, success is never achieved.
- There is no “ideal weight” for individuals; as long as you feel fit, comfortable, and healthy – any weight can be just fine.
