Weight-Loss Tips That Work
Forget willpower. Instead try these strategies to help reach your goal:
- Don't start your diet until you've worked out all the details -- filled the fridge with healthy foods, told your husband he's not allowed to bring ice cream home for a month, enlisted friends for support.
- Expect screw-ups. Giving in to temptation isn't a sign of your weakness -- it's normal. Forgive yourself and start fresh tomorrow.
- Reward yourself. Whether it's a new pair of shoes or a manicure, there's nothing like a little incentive to keep you going.
