I try to take note of when I've replaced a bad habit with a good one or removed a bad habit altogether. This way when the scale doesn't move I can remember that my goal is fundamentally overall health, and the weight loss will come.
Be listening because occasionally friends, coworkers or family will notice before you do that you've made a change. You'll hear something like. "Wow. your still walking at every morning break?" or "She always brings a healthy lunch." That should be your goal, to hear those things.

Counting calories may be the hardest part of a successful weight reduction, but it is the only true way to lose those unwanted pounds
MORE INFORMATION: 252 Long before becoming a Spark person I counted and record all my food calorie intakes, and found that the only true way to lost weight was by counting calories and changing your eating habits. Thanks to my doctor, I saw the light and have in the last year and half lost over 100 #'s.
I pick one bad habit to break every week, I fast that bad habit and add on to it the next week. I am fasting soda this week, next week may be ice cream. Continue on until your habit is broken. You lose weight and change your eating habits at the same time. It takes 21 days to break a habit.
