If you have weight loss goals, you’re in the right place, girlfriend! The internet can lead you to believe weight loss is this big scary, painful process. But it doesn’t have to be! Heck, it can even be fun if you do it right. 

Healthy weight loss is gradual, and the dieting and training regimen you use to get there should be realistic and definitely not drain your energy.
