2. Post your answers to these questions in your PhenForum.com weight loss diary. Doing so will spark your goals to life and you'll feel more certain that you can achieve them.
3. Start your diary. It's really easy! Just click on the "New Topic" button, put the name of your diary in the subject field (ex.

4. Keep posting! You've already accomplished a gigantic step towards your goals by starting your own weight loss diary. But for the best motivation, you must update it regularly - at least 3-5 times a week. The best success comes from using your diary every day, especially when you first start out. Write about everything, whether you view it as success or failure. Share your feelings with others and ask them for advice. Stick with these tips, and you'll find out how much support and motivation you can get from a simple diary.
