Not only while you are actively losing weight, but after you've reached your weight loss goals too -- after all, if you go back to your old habits, you'll quickly regain all of the weight you lost.

That initial burst of motivation may last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, but eventually your determination is going to weaken and you may need a little bit of help to get it back up to a helpful level.
