Positive Attitude Key to Weight Loss Success (cont.)

FLETCHER:
I think my last piece of advice it to tell people to stop listening to all the failure talk --that is this notion that nobody succeeds at permanent weight control. There are many, many people who have succeeded, and their examples prove you can do it, too. I'm not suggesting that it's easy and that it doesn't take effort, but over and over the masters' stories and exhilaration about how great their lives are, after having lost the weight, shows over and over again that it's worth the effort. Who better to show us how to lose weight and keep it off, than people who have been there?
