Aim to lose small amounts of weight steadily, and consistently, over a long period of time.

Why? It’s easier to achieve lasting weight loss that way. Larger amounts of weight, lost quickly, don’t stay lost we promise you!

Hate exercising? Think of why you hate it — if it’s because you find it lonely, join a class. If you feel self-conscious with others, do something alone, like walking, running or swimming at quiet times in the pool.
