What is it about that last (or next) ten pounds that makes them so hard to lose? I put together a list of six questions to ask yourself to get that scale moving again.

1.  Are my goals realistic? If you are comparing yourself to your wedding pictures, dying to look like the cover of Vogue, or striving to be the only person in your family without the "Hughes Hips," you may be fighting an uphill battle.

2.  Is it worth it? If you are facing health consequences or are limited in your ability to live your life the way you want, the answer is probably YES! If you just want to wear your daughter's jeans, it may not be.

3.  What is the most likely problem? (Be honest!) Although I can sometimes convince myself that I have no idea, in truth, I am pretty sure it is that glass of wine in the evening and my passion for chocolate.

4.  Am I willing to do what it will take? Back to that glass of wine and my this point in my life, I'm just not willing to give up the things that I love. However, I am willing to practice moderation and skip the less wonderful things that have slipped into my diet.

5.  What three SMALL steps am I willing to take starting today?  Forget the all or nothing approach. It only keeps you trapped in your Eat-Repent-Repeat Cycle.  

6.  Am I postponing my life until I lose those 10 pounds? Once you have created your initial 3-Step Action Plan, get on with living your life! Obsessing about ten pounds only zaps your energy and self-confidence. Instead, do something that proves how wonderful you really are - and stop waiting for the scale to tell you.

What is your 3-Step Action Plan? Just making the commitment by writing it down (here in the comments section if you are really serious!) will help move you forward.
