7 Things that Separate Weight-Loss Winners & Losers
How to Stay on Top of Your Game

I can't tell you how AWESOME it is to read all your comments! In writing this article, I was hoping it would ring true for the winner in each of you. It seems like many of you have tried the 'all or nothing' route or got really attached to those numbers on the scale. Believe me, I've been there too. There is no perfect formula for weight loss. But at least these evidence-based tips can help you navigate the game and perhaps stop being so hard on yourself.
Staying the course and analyzing your own habits until you find out what works for YOU is what really makes you a weight loss winner!
Thanks for all the great feedback. You guys are fantastic!
I think small milestones. 5 lbs to start with. not overwhelming. and be kind to ourselves. not so down on us!!

This is a good one. What usually happens is that after losing some pounds or after enrolling yourself in fitness boot camps like this one: http://www.revivalbootcamp.com/, we usually go back to old us, to the old lifestyle. It would be best to maintain the food intake as well as the cardio to maintain the weight that you would like to achieve.
