If you have a lot to lose like me (82 pounds when I started), that number can seem daunting. Set small goals like 5% of your start weight, 5 pounds, etc. Be sure to reward yourself when reaching these incremental goals. It's motivating to tick off those small goals on the way to the ultimate goal.

Staying active doesn't mean get out and exercise. It means try to stay busy so you don't sit around and watch TV/Computer. These are the biggest no-no's when you are on a weight loss mission. If you find yourself getting hungry after dinner and you can't intake more calories get out and walk. This always does the trick.
And don't forget to stay motivated. Set small goals and keep them.
