Tip #01: Take Baby Steps
"... It's great to be motivated, but diving into a lot of change all at once is a recipe for burnout. Instead, start with one habit, and once you've got a handle on it, move slowly onto the next."
"... Remember--slow and steady wins the race. Be consistent with gradually adding more healthy habits, and you'll see results in no time!"

Tip #02: Always Have a Plan (And Back-Ups)
"... When it comes to eating right and getting in your fitness minutes, always have a ''Plan A'' and a ''Plan B'' to ensure that you're never left unprepared for life's little obstacles."

Tip #03: Measure Everything
"... Invest in a set of measuring cups and spoons and practice measuring out your portions at every possible opportunity. "

Tip #04: Drink Water (And Lots of It!)
"... Drinking enough H2O will help keep you full, prevent fatigue and crush food cravings."

Tip #05: Flex Your Motivation Muscle
"... Find something that motivates you and incorporate it into your daily routine."

Tip #06: Work on Your Relationship with Food
"... Although it can be difficult, consciously working to change your relationship with food is one of the best things you can do for long-term weight-loss success."

Tip #07: Take Advantage of Your Tracking Tools
"... The food and fitness data that you track is more valuable than you might realize. Don't just track your intake and exercise—really use that information!"

Tip #08: Surround Yourself with Goal Reminders
"... It's easy to let life get in the way of your well-intentioned plans to eat right and exercise. But if you surround yourself with constant reminders of your big-picture plan, it makes it easier to stick to the healthy habits that will get you results."

Tip #09: Keep a Food Photo Journal
"... If you're a visual person, taking pictures of your food before a meal is an easy way to get a clear picture of how much you're eating. It's pretty difficult to be dishonest with yourself about what you ate when you have the evidence in photo form!"

Tip #10: Be Kind to Yourself Every Day
"... Find a quiet moment every day to reflect on how far you've come already—and tell yourself that you deserve to live your best life. "
