Need Help Losing Weight? Here’s What to Do.

Posted Dec 04 2012 5:00am

If you are like so many women, you’ve probably asked yourself many times: How am I going to lose weight? This isn’t exactly a wrong question; it’s just not the right one to start with. This question propels women toward weight-loss plans good and bad, gym memberships, food scales, calorie counters, controlled portion sizes, eating diaries, quick weight-loss diets. These things can be excellent weight-loss tools for sure, but they don’t work the instant wonders we want them to work. If they did, anyone would be able to get thin and stay thin without a struggle.

…Instead of asking: What can I do to lose weight, try something different this time. Ask yourself: What have I been doing to keep this weight on? If you ask this question first, it will breathe new life into your weight-loss process.
