#3. Make dietary changes gradually.
#4. Be patient, progress takes time.
I'll second every comment - except #3. Making wholesale changes in my diet was the only way I could stay on track. (Example: no drinking during the week rather than saying ill have 1 glass and have it creep into 2-3.) seeing quick changes kept me on track as well.
But that brings me back to #2. Some people do better with small changes.
And #4 is the TRUTH! Sadly it takes a lot les time to put pounds back on. Gotta lose the 5 pounds I gained during FB season/holidays!
