If your goal is to lose several pounds or dress sizes, it may take you several weeks or months to get there. And, there may be pitfalls and "roadblocks" along the way. However, you don't want to lose your motivation, so keep a record of your progress in a notebook or on a calendar. When you start to feel discouraged because you're still not where you want to be, or because you've slipped up, look over your notes. When you see the progress that you've made, you'll feel more enthusiastic and confident to continue on your path toward weight- loss success — at all costs! It's very important not to neglect this step. Make little notes about how you made good choices at the grocery store, about how you ate only one Oreo instead of a whole bag, how you did your cardio exercises three times this week. Ignore the obstacles and continue with your journey. It's very important not to neglect this step.

7 OVERVIEW QUIT 5 of 5 Step Five: Celebrate Your Success As you chart your progress at the end of the day or week, or whenever you need a little boost, celebrate your success.

Also, share your success stories with friends, coworkers and family members. As they share in your joy, it will stroke your enthusiasm and propel you further along.

Sometimes even a spouse will get jealous because you're turning more heads now. Proceed with caution and don't fall for those tactics. Remember, it's where you want to be, not them!
