- AIM FOR CONSISTENCY: If you maintain healthy eating habits consistently during the week, you can splurge occasionally on the weekends and still lose weight.
- LOOK FOR WEIGHT LOSS ROLE MODELS: Take note of people who've lost weight and gained considerable energy and vitality - and ask them how they did it. Borrowing their strategies could help you to sustain your motivation when it begins to lag.
- SOCIALING ISN'T JUST ABOUT THE FOOD: By focusing on the social aspects of family barbecues, cocktail parties, and other get-togethers, you'll become more engaged in conversation and less caught up in midelessly putting food in your mouth.
