1. Are you happy to lose an average of 1.5-2 pounds per week?

Impatience is a diet-killer. Besides, it takes time to learn some good eating habits. These are two good reasons why being happy with some steady weight loss will give you a definite edge.

2. Are you easily distracted by commercials or friends who tell you about quick ways to lose weight?
(a) 3 points (b) 2 points (c) 1 point

Being distracted by the hope of a quick-fix will play havoc with your motivation, especially if weight loss slows. Truth is, there are no quick-fixes.

3. Are you aiming for a specific weight?
(a) 1 point (b) 2 points (c) 3 points

Always aim for a specific target weight. For example, if you are 200 pounds and aim to lose "about 50 pounds", then set 190 pounds as your first target. (Then 180, 170 etc.)

4. Before dieting, do you take measurements of your chest, waist, hips, arms and thighs?
