PROMISE yourself not to QUIT. It really makes me sad the number of people who start and then quit. PROMISE to love yourself and stay with this. You can do this in small goals. There are many, many success stories here at SPARKPEOPLE and it is all FREE.
If you are an emotional eater, read the book "SHRINK YOURSELF" by UCLA psychiatrist ROGER GOULD, M.D. He gives an Eight Step Plan to deal with the issue. He has an interview at YOUTUBE if you do a search there for him.
