Love this advice from Denise Austin. Actually, after my recent gain, I have 20lbs. :-P
10 Pounds to Go!
Q: I've lost close to 50 pounds, and now that I'm finally down to the last 10 pounds, I'm finding it hard to stay determined. How can I keep up my motivation?
A: Congratulations — you've done a great job so far! The last 10 pounds are usually the hardest to lose, but don't give up! The best way to rev up your metabolism is to add another five minutes to your routine. Try light walking around the block, toning exercises, even light isometrics (resistance exercises during which you hold a position for a set period of time). These will all help speed up that metabolism and burn those extra pounds. Also, make sure you drink plenty of water and curb snacking in the evening. This will help you get over your last hurdle. Good luck — you're almost there!
