Achieving and maintaining a healthier weight will contribute to your overall health and well being. Develop a plan for life long health, not just short term weight loss. By putting more emphasis on overall health, experts agree that you can raise your self esteem, resulting in healthy eating, weight loss, and over all improved health.
Set realistic goals and a step-by step plan. Track your progress with a food and activity log. Start with two or three specific or small changes at a time. When you've turned a healthy change into a habit, reward yourself with a fun activity; not ice cream!
