    Step 1: First Thing's First, Ladies. Evaluate Your Motivation.
    dots

      Why do you want to lose weight? If you answered "Because I will be more attractive to fill-in-the-blank," "My mother/significant other/best friend wants me to," or any variety of these two answers, perhaps it's time to re-think your goals.

      In order to be successful, you must view your journey to fitness as a personal objective. Do this for you: your health, your happiness, and your mental clarity for goodness sake!

    Step 1: Stock Up On Clean Foods.
    dots

      Get away from processed, preservative-laden foods. While any food really can be eaten in moderation, it's best not to have those Oreos staring you in the face. Stick to the items found around the circumference of the grocery store - those tend to be the freshest.

      Having your fridge stocked with fresh fruit, veggies, and lean protein comes in handy when a craving strikes. Check out Tosca Reno's The Eat-Clean Diet to get you on the right track.

      Having food on hand means you won't be tempted to indulge at the vending machine. And you'll save money! Keep an insulated cooler bag on your person stocked with fresh cut fruit and veggies, cottage cheese, yogurt, and string cheese.

      Everyone cheats. Get over it and move on. Drink tons of water to counteract a binge and if it helps, schedule a cheat meal into your diet plan once or twice a week.

    Step 1: Don't Be Intimidated.
    dots

      Don't hesitate to ask gym employees' questions. That's what they're there for-plus, I'm sure they'd be more than willing to drop that magazine they've been musing over for the past five hours of their shift. If you're unsure, ask for a mini-tour of the gym floor and how to operate the machines. If you train at home, keep it simple. Buy some dumbbells and bands and be on your merry way.

    Step 2: Get Organized.
    dots

      Find a time that works for you to hit up the gym. Just like your job, schedule in your workouts. That way, you'll be less likely to cancel 'em. Carry a notebook with you to the gym to record your progress. Prepare a week's worth of food in bulk during free time on the weekend so you can grab and go.

      Indeed, it can give you a much needed boost when results hit a plateau, but many a fab-figured fitness femme can tell you that the bulk of your fitness ammo lies in clean eating and consistent, intense work-outs.
