Don't focus on the weight, but rather, focus on making more healthful life choices. Do things like: reduce your intake of saturated fats; eliminate transfats; replace refined sugars with natural sweeteners; increase intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, and seeds;
be mindful of nutrition in beverages (i.e., calories, sugar, fat); and get more physical activity.
These helped me lose about 50 pounds. It's a no nonsense solution.

A key to getting into a healthy mental & emotional weight loss state is understanding what you really want, and why.
My most successful clients are able to articulate WHY they want to lose the weight, and picture what it will be like when they get there: - Play with kids - Reduce Rx dependence - Dress size - Feel more attractive, etc.
Pounds are like money - people don't really want money, they want the things money can buy. So don't focus on the # of pounds! Focus on the WHY!
