When it comes to slimming down, attitude, apparently, plays a big role!

Fascinatingly, the study found that:
* Women who think positively about weight management were more likely to achieve their specific weight loss goals.
* Not only did women who think positively about their weight management report that they were more successful in losing or maintaining their weight, they were actually eight times less likely to report having gained weight than women who think negatively.
* Women who think positively about weight management report that they are 25% more likely to succeed in maintaining their weight
* 9 out of 10 women who think positively about weight management reported either losing weight or maintaining their weight in the past year, compared to only about half of women with a negative approach.
