10. The best tip you've received with regard to long lasting slimness.
Weigh yourself everyday. I used to weigh myself once a week (or once a month), but if it was the wrong time of the month or wrong day of week I would see a gain in the scale and be completely demoralized and give up. Weighing every single day allowed me to see the fluctuations in the scale according to my body. And that is how I learned that the only time a real loss shows up for me, is around 2-4 days after my period, otherwise the scale is up and down for the rest of the month!
Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing. /// Thomas Jefferson
