Words of Wisdom
Set small goals. Focus losing weight in 5- to 10-pound increments. Once you get into a new weight bracket, rework your goals.
Seek support. Find one or two people who really support you and will cheer you on and encourage you when you hit setbacks.
Keep it simple. Focus on eating whole foods more so than recipes you use.
Look in the mirror. Don’t compare yourself to others — compare yourself to the person you were yesterday.
