Find Support. It’s easier to stay on track with friends who are there with you.

List your reasons. Keep a list of why a goal is important. Post it where you can see it or pull it out from a purse or wallet often.

Waste Of Time

Starting a restrictive diet. Ask yourself, “Can I imagine doing this everyday for the rest of my like?” If not, don’t bother, because a soon as you return to old habits, the weight returns.

Not anticipating setbacks and cravings. Realize that a healthier-you plan will need adjusting and that cravings or dieting slip-ups are inevitable, It doesn’t mean that you should abandon your health goals.
