(HealthDay News) -- Ready to lose a few pounds? It's important to choose a healthy method of meeting and maintaining your dieting goals.

The Weight-loss Information Network says you should consider these factors:

  • Weight-loss goals that are steady and slow, from 1/2 pound to 2 pounds per week.
  • A long-term plan for keeping the weight off.
  • Support and guidance to help develop healthier eating and exercise habits.
  • Feedback and monitoring that continues even after you have lost the weight.
