How many of us have either made the resolution to achieve healthy weight loss, or know someone who has made this resolution at the end of the year? It's no wonder so many different weight loss programs advertise their products and services at the end of every year. Millions of Americans struggle to gain control of their weight without much success.

If you want to lose weight and you're tired of letting yourself down, it's time to do something about it. One of the main reasons people fail at losing weight is they set unrealistic goals. If you're ready to make a long-term change, then you need to sit down and take a serious look at your lifestyle and your eating habits. Unless you're a top model, you really don't need to reach weight loss goals that exceed the national standards.

Lose Weight the Right Way

I can't tell you how many times I have signed up for a weight loss program only to gain all of the weight back after a couple of months of intense dieting. Every time I followed one of these restrictive plans I was able to lose the weight in a very timely fashion. In fact, I probably lost weight too quickly, because I often gained the weight back in less time than it took me to lose it.

I remember the last diet I went on actually made me gain more weight than I had even gained before. I was on a very restrictive diet, and I took appetite suppressants. I lost twenty pounds in about two months. As soon as I started eating normally again, I gained the weight right back, plus an additional ten pounds. If you want to avoid this scenario, it's important to lose weight at a reasonable rate, with a healthy routine of diet and exercise.
