Get your head in the game.


Losing weight is 50 percent attitude. If you aren’t mentally, emotionally and psychologically committed to making a change, it’s not worth starting a weight-loss program. Having your head in the game means understanding your personal goals, being willing to put in the effort, and seeing the journey as a lifelong approach to health, instead of just a means to shedding quick, short-term pounds. When you have your head in the game for the right reasons from the beginning, it’s likely you’ll lose weight and keep it off for good.
