There is a lot of advice out there on weight loss. What to eat and what not to eat. How many meals/snack a day you should have. How many hours between meals. What the best weight loss diet is. How to exercise and how not to exercise. HIIT, Cardio, Weights? What supplements to take. How to limit your calories. How much sleep you need. What essential oils to use. How to detox. How much water to drink….And really the list goes on and on and on. One can write a lot about weight loss. One can try a lot of different ways to loose weight. Yes watching what and how much you eat and exercise are important and you do need to do both. And yes supplements, oils etc can help but really if your missing this one skill you won’t get vary far. And you will give up on all the hard work you have done if you don’t have this skill.
Must have skill for Weight Loss is Self Control… discipline.

Really you must take the time to learn self control and to become discipline in this area of your life if your going to lose weight and keep it off. But really this can apply to various areas in life can it not? Need to save money you have to have self control to not spend to tell yourself no and not give in to immediate gratification. Homemaking takes a lot of discipline to not be lazy and do what need to get done. Starting you own business take discipline.
