Weight loss is difficult and how to maintain your weight is a little easier.

Dieting can be traced back to ancient civilizations. Dieting can help speed up one’s metabolism and cannot work successfully without a routine exercise regimen.
Lisa has 170lbs to lose. In the last two months she has lost 7 pounds and a poster told her that was wonderful progress – she should just keep doing what she’s doing and lose the remaining 170 lbs. It would take Lisa, losing 3.5 lbs/month, 48 months to lose her weight. That is without setbacks or life’s little disruptions. That’s 48 months of maintaining a rigid diet/exercise program while seeing little progress. Few people can accomplish that. Take a look around, there are a lot of obese people struggling just to get by, yearning to be in any body besides their own fat one.
