Firstly, there will be times when you will be tempted to skip an exercise session or tuck into a large bowl of ice cream with chocolate sauce. One quick glance at your journal should dissuade you from this (at least most of the time anyway!).
Secondly, I have no doubt that by following a regular program of exercise combined with eating and drinking in the way I recommend later in this manual, your weight will fall and you will become both slimmer and fitter.
When you are trying to lose weight, there is nothing more encouraging or inspiring than to see actual written proof that what you’re trying to achieve is working, and do not forget the point I raised earlier about having a final target weight and sticking to it.
You should not realistically expect to see a massive weight loss every day unless you start off from being very obese indeed.
For this reason, I would not recommend that you take a note of your weight every day, but perhaps do so once or twice a week.
In this way, the weight loss becomes far more apparent, which is much more encouraging and far more likely to keep you going when temptation strikes from time to time (as it inevitably will).
