Do you want to lose 10, 30, 50 or more pounds? Have you recently reached your weight loss goal but want to maintain it? Are you willing to dedicate yourself to a healthy lifestyle? Then this blog is for you!

I have lost 118 pounds and have maintained the weight loss for two years. One of the things I have learned during the weight loss process is that it is much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals to support you in the process (whether they be in person or online).

I also have learned that learning as much as possible about healthy living gives you the knowledge and expertise needed to lose weight the “right” way. So this blog includes regular posts, a book list, website list, TV list, video list and book and website of the month. In addition, there is a recipe of the month and product review section. Visitors to Weight Loss Aficionado can just enjoy the site for informational purposes or can comment on posts, ask questions, share resources, their triumphs and pitfalls during the weight loss process.

Surround Yourself with Positive Weight Loss Imagery!

It's important that you regularly 1) think about your weight loss goals and why you made them and 2) envision yourself at "your perfect weight". Two ways I do this is by displaying pictures and quotes.

I have pictures of myself when I was at "my perfect weight", pictures of bodies I persevere to have, and weight loss quotes in well-traveled areas throughout my home. Three key areas I house "weight loss" pictures and quotes is on my refrigerator, my full length mirror and the notebook I keep in my night stand. The refrigerator is key for me because I am reminded of my goals each time I go to get food. The mirror is key for me because I like to be reminded of my goals each time I look at myself. So, if you haven't done so already, add some positive weight loss imagery to your home! Feel free to use some of the quotes I've collected during my weight loss.They are listed on the side bar just above the "My Favorites" section of this site.
