Products sampled from this guide:
For best results, you need to become self-centered in your weight loss quest. Sound crass? Maybe, but focusing on yourself is crucial for weight control success.

You donít ever need to be thin. You donít need to be skinny. Donít let some magazine or TV show or celebrity determine how you should look. Work on getting to a weight and body shape thatís best for you. Undertake dietary, exercise, and lifestyle changes to please you, not other people.

This may sound selfish, but itís hard to succeed if you don't. With that thought in mind, focus on your daily routine, not the results. Set your sights on mini-goals, not the ultimately desired outcome. Adjust to the new habits and routine of any weight loss approach at your own pace. Doing everything at once and trying to hurtle to your ideal body weight quickly could be too overwhelming. It's helpful to plan a series of small goals that build up toward your bigger goal. Keep those in mind, but pay more attention to the day-to-day activities and choices that will get you there. Let the results appear when they do. And make it about YOU.
