Think about the weight you need to lose this week and nothing else.
Keep a positive outlook, and keep setting realistic goals each week. If you have reasonable goals and if you put a lot of effort into it, your weight will slowly melt away and you will surely see a slimmer you. All that is necessary after that is to follow a maintenance plan.
