Weight Loss Tip: When trying to lose weight it is a good idea to have some long term goals. For example, you could try to run 200 miles on the treadmill by the end of the month. Constantly striving for that number could be all the motivation that you need to keep up a fitness program for an entire month and subsequently lose a lot of weight.
