This year, keep your New Year’s resolution and shed the pounds with these helpful tips from leading clinical psychologist Leslie C. Reisner, Ph.D. She has helped thousands achieve their goals through Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), which is a cognitive-behavioral approach to changing unhealthy emotions and behaviors that interfere with growth and development.


Identify your goals towards the preparation of a well-formulated weight loss/management plan.

Dissect your internal dialogues and previous track record. Focus on the positives rather than the negatives, such as can vs. can’t.

Face your fears and stop procrastinating. We procrastinate when we feel afraid, overwhelmed or uncertain about where to begin. Just start somewhere even if it’s adding a 20 minute walk to your day. You’ll find this motivating and energizing.

Embrace a new mindset and envision success. You can do it!

Set small realistic goals and benchmarks to assess along the way.
