    Amazing listening to Dr. Rice I do agree with her in how she pointed out that when a person do set a goal of weight lost but so focus on the outcome with out really making progress with backing it up with their behavior on the actions they take to reach their weight lost goal. A lot of people lose their behavior because they always expect an overnight success without realizing how much work they have to do to get to that goal. I think it’s just like life if you want something to change you have to change your behavior, Ex. If you want a good paying you will change your behavior in working extra hard to get that high paying job just like changing your behavior in doing the things that needs to be done or do to reach that weight lost goal or an overall healthy life.
