It is amazing how much easier it is to gain weight than to lose it. And we all know that we didn't get overweight overnight, so we aren't going to be able to lose it overnight, either. But how do you get started when you have more to lose than most people? When you know you have a long road
ahead of you? How do you pick a plan or a program when it already seems discouraging right at the beginning because there is so much to lose? When you know that it will take months, maybe a year or longer to lose the weight?
Is losing large amounts of weight different than smaller amounts? Are there things that a person can do to help insure success that are different from someone who has 20 pounds to lose?
