First, you have to get your mind in gear. Then, you have to be willing to take the good days with the bad ones, experiment, trial and error.
What works for me, may not work for you.
When you stumble and fall, as we all do sometimes, don't beat yourself up.
Give yourself credit for your good choices, tell yourself you are worth it, learn from the stumbles and carry on!
this is great advice. you really have to try all of the different ones in order to see which one works the best. I've tried low carb, low fat, WW, calorie counting but what seems to work for me is intuitive eating. My problem is overeating, so all I had to do was cut out the amount of food and it seems to be working, at least for me.
