It's the third week of January and 95% of people that have set a weight loss new year's resolution have already failed. The reason why they fail is that often resolutions are vague. They are almost impossible to achieve and relatively easy to fail.

2. Focus on body fat not weight.
3. Set mini-milestones and celebrate every victory.
