Secrets of Success

Start Slowly, Build Consistently




Just make one adjustment at a time, do it until it becomes a habit, then add another adjustment....pretty soon all those little adjustments add up to big changes!

More Information:

My first change was getting in the habit of tracking everything---food, water, exercise. Did that for about a week to identify problem areas, then tackled one problem a week and tried to make it a habit. This made the whole thing less overwhelming and easier to accomplish in the long run.

  • I started this way as well and it works! I am now at my goal weight and am maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The other benefit of starting slowly, is that it gives you the time to make each change a true lifestyle change.

    I started simply by drinking water PERIOD. Then working up to the eight glasses. - by TDAB26
