Start thinking about how much better you will feel when you reach your ‘weight loss’ goal. Keep in mind that losing even a small amount of weight can help you prevent diabetes and other illnesses resulting from obesity and excessive weight.
Weigh yourself at least once a week and write down your progress. Research shows that people who keep track of their weight reach their goals more often than those who don’t. BUT please don’t do it daily! Make healthy food choices and introduce exercise to your daily activities to help reach your weight loss goal.
