    10. The best tip you've received with regard to long lasting slimness.
    Develop an eating & exercise plan that you can stick into your life daily, & push through the difficulty long enough & it will become habit. Still not easy, but certainly easier. Eventually. Eating smart & exercise is as important as brushing your teeth & taking a shower...you wouldn't skip those things because you "just don't want to" would you? No, it doesn't even cross your mind, that is because you have been doing it over & over for years. Do the same thing with smart eating & exercise. Start now.
