Loss of pounds is necessary, but healthy choices are essential to lifelong successful weight loss.

The biggest mistake you can make is to focus on a set number of pounds to lose in a specified period.  I am confident that some can lose weight doing this, but most will fail miserably.  You can focus on losing weight or redirecting your goals to a new path to better health.  Focus on eating better all the time instead of a short term goal.  If you eat healthily, you will lose weight without trying.   

Americans are beginning to embrace healthier eating and exercise. Indeed, an obsession with healthy eating and exercise seems to be the order of the day.  Healthy meals are a hugely profitable market.  There are plenty of mail order meals that you can be ordered via the internet, and the number of companies offering frozen meal is increasing every day.  The good news is that retailers are beginning to provide healthy cuisine to consumers, but unfortunately, there is a considerable percentage of consumers that are less than convinced that healthy eating and exercise is the way to go.

The bottom line:  Americans should make more of an effort to maintain an active lifestyle and healthier diet.  Success in our country has led to abundance especially when it comes to food, and that has led to ever-expanding waistlines. We spend a good amount of our time in from of a TV or computer.  If we focus more on eating healthy foods and getting enough exercise, improved health and a more appropriate waistline will come naturally and nearly effortless.
