7. Chart your success. Charting your success along the way keeps you more interested in the process and more motivated. Do this in your food journal. Take stock at the end of each week. Note your weight, how you're feeling, and anything you would like to focus on (like getting more fiber into your meals.)

8. Slim down your cooking. Do your favorite recipes need a diet? Try substituting lean ground turkey for ground beef, and using low-fat cheeses. Also, add body to soups, stews and casseroles with pureed vegetables, like cauliflower or zucchini.

9. Aim for small goals. If you have a lot to lose, it could be intimidating to focus only on that number. Shoot for the first five pounds. Then, the next five. And so on. Taking baby steps will make your journey easier.

10. Work more activity into your day. Yes you exercise, but being more active throughout the day will burn more calories and help keep you from eating out of boredom. Instead of automatically reaching for a bag of chips, empty the dishwasher. Or, during a commercial break, get up and stretch, or take a few laps around the couch.
