We have talked about control and how you need to control your eating habits and control your total food intake in order to lose weight, but you do need to throw the word "Determination" into the arena also.
If you think of the word determination, it conjures to your mind someone who will never give in. Like a British Bulldog, once they grab something they will never let go. You need that type of determination when deciding to start a weight loss program.
There is no shortcut to weight loss, it is a battle and there are more than enough temptations along the way for you to stray from your goal, but if you set your mind strongly and apply a good dose of determination, the outcome is guaranteed to be in your favor. Just as it was easy to put the weight on in the first place, with control and determination, it is just as easy to take it off again.
Become determined to reach your goal weight, you can do it, just like many others before. It is easy to give in, but if you have the determination to succeed in losing weight, you can move mountains of fat from your body and look and feel like that person who is inside you, screaming to be released.
