  • First and foremost you need motivation - it can be hard, but it can be done. Look around and you’ll be amazed at what can actually give you the motivation that you need to stay on track while losing weight.
  • At least one person who really supports you while losing weight - if you have this, you’ll find a lot of motivation and they will keep you going when you feel like giving up.
  • A walking partner - someone to talk to while walking really makes it fun and not seem like you are even walking to lose weight and get healthy.
  • At least one form of exercise  - don’t cringe on this one, there are many things out there to get your heat beat going that do not even seem like exercise.
  • A good play list on your ipod - you have to have good music to make it fun.
  • A scale to weigh yourself- it will become your friend and also give you that extra motivation to staying focused day by day while losing weight.
  • food scale - yes, you will need to weigh some of your foods. I don’t go anywhere without mine. And it looks kind of neat on the counter.
  • Your own bottle for water - funny how something like this can make you feel special and also give you motivation.
  • A journal for food - keeping track of what you eat really makes a difference and helps you make better food choices. It’s also fun and again gives you motivation.
  • Set small weight loss goals - setting small and realistic goals makes it easier to do and you will be surprised once you get going how much motivation you get to keep reaching these goals.
  • Lastly, get rid of “I Can’t” in your vocabulary - you really can, if I can, you can too!!
