If you’ve read the book Good to Great you’ll relate that in business there isn’t any one strategy that creates a successful company. Well the same thing applies to weight loss success – there is an artillery of strategies people use in this arena too. When I read about any one kind of diet and how they try to convince you “this is the one” I usually end up scratching my head in disbelief, because I’ve been there. The food and diet are only one aspect, but it’s application and prolonged adherence intermeshed in your life facilitates success. Trust me. So, here are more quick tips to be inspired by, offered up by our successful weight losers, reported on weekly since July:

  • Plan ahead
  • Talk to my friends and family when i need help
  • Allow yourself to have treats, just don’t over do it
  • Put my jeans on at least once a week
  • If you fall off, get back up
  • Stay well hydrated
  • Perseverance
  • Love myself
  • Be gentle with myself, but honest
  • Cut back on alcohol
  • Try new foods and recipes
  • Not eating on the run, sit at the table and make my meal an event
  • Try different exercises
  • Monitor intake in a journal
  • Keep low-cal/low-fat snacks around
  • Make a list before going to the grocery store
  • Do yoga for mental and physical well-being
  • Learn to know your food
  • Reward weight loss milestones with none food items
  • Increase fruit and vegetable intake
  • Stop eating when full and take remainder home
