I think that in order for one to be success in losing weight and keeping it off, one must have the attitude that this is a lifestyle change. This is the way I must eat, exercise and live in order to maintain my weight-loss.
The most important thing you can do for another weight-loser is to give them a "that-a-girl". It is the best motivator one can give and by you giving them that goodie, it gives you a wonderful feeling of compassion and support.
I find that I still have to write down everything I eat. I need to know how many calories I have eaten so I know to stop when I have reached my capacity or a bit over. If I didn't count I would continue to eat and thus gain my lost weight.
