Tip # 9: Smart supplementation works.
If your doctor gives you the okay, Lucille Roberts gyms carry three supplements, each with different properties, designed to up the speed of your weight/fat loss. I use Pounds Away before my first two meals and exercise, and Weight Wizer is great for late afternoon or evening because it contains no caffeine. I have alternated Pounds Away with African Bush Mango and give my stamp of approval on all three. I am an avid researcher and skeptic when it comes to fat loss products. Ours work, period.

Tip #10: Love yourself during the journey to your desired goal weight.
No one is perfect, and the quest to reach a number on the scale is one that requires patience, self-discipline, and a lot of love–for yourself! There will be days you miss your workout, eat a sugary, fatty treat, or are just plain too busy to make it to your favorite class. Forgive yourself and move on.
The lessons that you learn along the path to lifelong fitness and weight loss will be with you forever. Be kind to yourself: there is only one YOU. Although you may want to improve upon your physical appearance by dropping a few more pounds or even a large amount of weight, remember that inside the outer shell is a loving, warm human being that deserves kind words and kind actions. When you look in the mirror, focus on the things you like about yourself, not the 10 or 15 pounds you are going to lose.
Follow these 10 tips, and–I promise–the weight loss will follow if you just believe in yourself!
