Enjoy dieting, don't let it be a stressful thing. It can actually be a lot of fun. Take your time and don't rush it.
Sudden weight loss never sticks, people always seem to regain it all plus some
In my opinion anymore than 1 pound a week for a man and half a pound for a woman in weight loss is too drastic and very hard on the body.
Know what you are going to eat the day before, plan it if you can, and stick to it.
You will have success.
Even at a fast food place you can get food that would work with your diet. I bought 3 Grilled Chicken Patties from Burger King for lunch. Had them with Mustard and really enjoyed them.
