Knowledge

By finding out and learning as much as you can about weight loss in general, and nutrition and exercise specifically, you grow to understand the journey you are on and you understand the problems that arise and how to do something about them.

Every pound adds up!!

Don't think you are losing too slowly - it doesn't matter how slow you lose - its taken me 8 1/2 yrs to lose 60kg (132lb) but I have lost it - every pound has added up to a huge total loss!!

By planning the meals for the next day on the day before you KNOW what you are going to eat and you know you will stay within your calorie range!!

Checking food quantities

One of the biggest helps to staying on track that I find is to have the measuring cups, spoons and food scales on my bench beside where I dish up meals - and to USE them for everything.
I find that judging weights and measures - they tend to creep up and I'm never sure exactly how much I eat

Stay Positive

When a plateau just won't break and you are doing all the right things, eating in range, exerciseing consistantly, weighing foods etc, etc - then I find that if I stay positive, KNOW that it will break when my body is good and ready, this helps me stay on track and the plateau always breaks.
