My secret is to partner up. There is always someone who wants and needs to loose weight. Be sure to pick someone that is actually serious about it though, not just saying it. Also be open and honest with your partner on weight, it's brutal and embarrassing but it works. You share each others ups and downs and help each other stick to it. Just like what spark does30
True awareness of why the weight isn't coming off begins with 100% total honesty about the quantity of everything we eat (weight, ounces, or serving size), the content of what we eat (how much sodium, sugar, etc. is in the food), and how much truly active exercise we're getting on a daily basis.
