The hardest part about dieting is sticking with it. We've

all had those times when we just can't pass up the ice cream

or cake for dessert. When somebody is dieting and this

happens they feel like they've let themselves down and thus

they feel like the diet is a total loss.

This happens all the time and is not a reason for you to

give up trying. We all fall short sometimes, so just get

back on the wagon and try again.

It's important to make sure you are on the diet plan that

is right for you. If the plan you are on isn't meeting your

craving needs, maybe you need to try a different approach.

Research the various diet plans and find one that suits your

needs better so then you won't be tempted to stray.

It's important to know what is your weakest aspect

concerning your diet; is it fast food, desserts, fried

foods; know what pushes your buttons and then try to stay

away from them. Out of sight, out of mind, so they say.

When you start a diet, it's important to let your friends

and family know, so they can support you and not tempt you

with things you know you shouldn't have. It is your

opportunity to be an example to your friends and family that

you can succeed at meeting your weight loss goal.

If you are finding it hard to stay away from temptations,

maybe you are not on the right type of diet; maybe there is

another plan that will suit your eating habits better. As

they say, "there is more than one way to skin a cat".

It's important to get motivated and have inspiration. Read

other people's stories or buy a dress in the size you want

to be wearing. Leave that dress hanging where you will see

it every day and a motivator to keep you on track.

Before you begin your diet, set your goal for how much

weight you want to lose. Write it down and hang it up

everywhere you will see it throughout the say. Even speak it

out loud; make yourself believe it and it will come true.

Make sure you reward yourself for being a better eater and

working toward your fitness goals. It's important to

celebrate the small successes and stop focusing on

insignificant setbacks.
