ABSTRACT
The article gives an account of the lives of those who lost weight by following a fitness regimen. The lessons that emerge are that one shouldn't sabotage one's weight loss by working out hard, then making poor nutritional choices or taking fat-burning drugs. If one is going to take care of the outside of one's body, one should be equally sure to take equal care with what one puts inside it. Positive reinforcement helps. One should tell some close friends or family that one is starting a new workout regimen.
