It's June now. How are you doing with those New Year resolutions you made last December? You're not alone if you've slacked off a little. In fact, many have already abandoned the weight-loss goals they set for themselves at the onset of the new year. If you started out 2015 with good intentions, but you're now too discouraged to follow through with them, don't lose hope. You may just be using the wrong approach. So many people believe that weight loss is like a tool, something easily picked up and put down when it has served its purpose. But successful weight loss isn't about simply doing something until you achieve a desired number on the scale or fit into a certain dress size and then give it up.
