Instead of trying to chose a number for a weight loss goal, try using a different type of measurement. Have a pair of pants that you love but don't fit? Make your goal to fit into those pants. This will take your attention away from the scale, which is not always an accurate measurement of weight loss.
Always have healthy snacks available in your fridge and pantry. Purchase a big container, made of plastic, with a cover. Purchase fresh produce like celery, carrots and radishes. One easy tip is to partially fill a container with some water and ice. Prepare your vegetables and place them in the container and store in the fridge. Having this healthy ready to eat snack ready to go will reduce the temptation of a quick bag of chips.

You should try to make it your goal to lose at least one pound each week. If you are not losing this you should try to make an adjustment to reach this goal. One pound each week ensures that you are slowly losing weight at a healthy rate.
Test yourself with a 10-pound dumbbell. Hold up a dumbbell and feel how much weight you will be eliminating from your body. You should find this enough motivation to get this out of your body as soon as possible.
To stay motivated while losing weight, reward yourself in ways that aren't related to food. A small treat now and then can be good, but try to get out of the habit of thinking of food as a reward. Instead, promise yourself a new outfit--in your new size!--or a trip to the spa.
