HAVE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS!
One pound of fat is equivalent to 3,500 calories, so you need to be realistic about how long it takes to lose fat.
The best approach is a combination of consuming fewer calories while getting more exercise. But keep in mind that it takes a lot longer to burn off calories through exercise than it does to eat fewer calories.
A weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week is a safe rate, and helps to ensure that you're losing fat, not muscle or water weight.
Expect nothing and appreciate everything. It takes 3 D's to accomplish anything in life. Determination, Dedication and Desire!
