  • Monitoring your progress with handy tracking tools
  • Being mindful of your new lifestyle

You’re probably familiar with the expression, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” It’s a cousin to the saying, “Old habits die hard.” No matter how you say it, change doesn’t come easy to most people, and yet change is essential to weight-loss success. My attitude is this: I can teach anyone some new diet tricks, but some people take more time than others to get it right. And although breaking old habits isn’t always easy, if you work hard enough to replace them with new, healthier habits, doing so is certainly possible.

In this chapter, you assess your eating and exercise habits, establish your short-term and long-term weight goals, check your attitude, set up a monitoring system, and mentally prepare yourself to live a low calorie lifestyle. This chapter is the essential groundwork you need to map out a plan that can ensure your long-term success because it prepares you for making necessary changes in your eating, exercising, and thinking patterns.
