Sustainable weight loss is a matter of changing your lifestyle & eating habits. My secret is to not change everything at once. Start out with simple goals, like not eating sweets or drinking more water. After you tackle the first goal, set another one. But, keep them reasonable. This has worked very well for me and I just keep tackling small goals on my way to my big goal. Good luck!
We have goals, we strive to meet them, then life takes over. Promise yourself a simple goal or two, turn it into a streak. As SP says, it takes 21-40 days to form a habit. Once it's a habit...it's a lifestyle change! Repeat!
