Dear Motivated
You are the only person on earth you can take the decision to eat an energy-reduced diet and to do regular exercise to lose that weight. No one else can do this for you. Exercise is a great motivational tool for people who need to lose weight. If you need additional motivation contact Mandy at and ask about the Innertalk motivational tapes which may help you to stay focussed.
Good luck
