People Who Lost 20+ Pounds Swear By These Tips

"If you're hesitant, that means you're ready for a change. It's okay to be nervous. Take that leap. The day you start is the day your life will change forever. When you look back 11 months from this day, you will be so proud that you started and did not give up."

Take the leap

"WW is a tool to help you live a balanced healthy lifestyle. It's not all or nothing. You can and should eat what you like! If this is going to be the way you live the rest of your life, you've got to find a happy medium where you are eating foods you enjoy and moving in ways that feel good to you!

Don't rush the process

"Take it one day at a time. I know that sounds really simple, but on my first day, I felt so overwhelmed about how long it would take to hit my goal or to 'get healthy' but I then realized I didn't have to worry about the future, I just had to worry about today.

Take it one day at a time

"One key weight loss tip that helps me stay on track is refraining from eating meat, which also greatly improved my gout. I am now more active, going for walks, and doing yoga for exercise."

Give up meat

"My main tip is to stick with something that is realistic for you. Cutting out something entirely is not always realistic and you could end up binge eating afterwards."

Be realistic

"Becoming more active was key for me, and now I feel physically much better and more confident. Since I began weight training, I hits my protein goals every day to help build muscle along with fat loss."

Eat enough protein

"I've been using a program from a company called MetPro. They help you hack your metabolism. There are no pills or shakes or anything. I've never eaten healthier. I'm a very picky eater. I always joke that I have the palette of a 10-year old boy at a theme park.

Make sustainable changes

"I first lost weight by using a weight loss meal delivery service to get some weight off quickly and then started heavy lifting 4 days per week to build muscle.

Start now

"My #1 tip for lasting, sustainable weight loss has always been taking the focus away from weight loss and more on muscle growth. Before I lost 60 pounds, I was stuck on the yo-yo cycle of "eating less, exercising more" in the hopes I would see the number on the scale drop.

Focus on building muscle

"In hindsight, I think the number one tip is to do it slowly. Developing good habits that can last a lifetime rather than rush and starve yourself and gain it right back. Two pounds per month rather than two pounds per week."
