Once you have decided on a weight loss program you absolutely must commit to it.

Once you are committed then you will last the whole period of the program and that is where you will begin to see results. Weight loss is not an overnight thing and too many people are looking for quick fixes. The problem with quick fixes is that people tend to regain the weight they lost very soon after. Remember that weight loss is more than just about losing weight it is about committing to a particular way of living that encourages weight loss and weight control.
