We’d all love to lose that extra five, 10, or 15 pounds. And while we invariably begin attacking our new weight-loss goals with gusto (hello, “new year, new you!”), the bigger problem is sticking to said goals. Too often we find ourselves sliding back into our bad habits and seeing our goals fall by the wayside. Weight loss is a three-part process: Exercising and cutting calories are vital, but your mental outlook can mean the difference between success and failure. Your shot at success depends 100% on your ability to stay motivated and stay on track.
