2. Set specific, realistic goals. Start by walking 30 minutes, 3 days a week.

3. Get your team together. Build your support network. Tell your friends, family, and doctors about your goals and let them know how they can help. Get them on board to cheer and encourage you.

4. Keep a food and exercise log for motivation and to track what’s working and what’s not.

5. Celebrate your success. Reward yourself without food. Make a list of realistic “treats” when you hit milestones, even after your initial weight loss goal. Kept it off for a month? 6 months? Take yourself out to a show, get a massage, or pick another treat that makes you feel special.
