3. Create a positive environment.
You probably will need to do some house cleaning to help you on your journey.

4. Keep a journal.

5. Learn about proper portions.

6. Schedule exercise.

Your weight and health are just as important so put exercise on your calendar—and meet that commitment to yourself.

7. Eat mindfully.
Each time the you want to eat something, drink a glass of water. Then ask yourself if you’re still hungry. If the answer is “no,” then take the hand out of that bag of nuts and find something else do, whether it’s taking a walk or writing in a journal that you ‘escaped’ mindless eating at 2pm.
8. Get a fat buddy.
It can be tough to reach and maintain ideal weight on your own. Team up with a like-minded friend so you can provide support and encouragement to each other.
9. Commit long-term.
Maintaining ideal weight can only happen with lifestyle change. All too often, we shed pounds, do a victory dance and dive right back into bad habits. Make this time the time that sticks. Celebrate for a second and continue with the healthy journey.
