Hold on to that sweaty feeling!
We know it's hard! We know it's easier just to sit on the couch. And sometimes,
we know you're just not getting the results as fast as you'd like. But things
are happening, honestly! Muscles are toning, fat's melting. You just need to
keep at it.

you do just that.

lines, consider a lesser goal. Fifty pounds in eight weeks is rather
daunting. Start by losing ten pounds. Once you're there, reassess and set
another small goal.
- Nude up.
Okay, this one is a bit out there, but try to spend as much time with your
clothes off as possible. If you still have a long way to go, it'll serve as a
reminder of the things you're striving to change. If you're well on your way,
it'll remind you of all you've accomplished, especially when you walk by a
mirror and think, "Who's that hottie?" Sometimes a little narcissism is a good
thing. That said, you might want to strap a few of your bits down when actually
