I personally like to use the phrase "melt fat" and picture my body as a furnace that is melting my fat like candle wax.

If you have trouble finding time to exercise, for instance, find time to play instead. When I was a kid, my mother never said, "Go out and exercise." She said "Go out and play." So even though that meant I was going to burn calories and build muscle by playing tag or kickball or riding my bicycle, I just thought I was having fun.
Even the phrase "go on a diet" can be self-defeating since it implies a diet is a carnival ride of which we will eventually get off. What happens then? Do we suddenly have license to eat every fattening food we see? "Changing our eating habits" is a far more permanent way to look at making different better food choices.
Take Shape for Life, on the other hand, implies a more holistic approach to taking control of one's life life by permanently changing our habits. Though many of us start the program merely hoping to fit into our skinny jeans, by the end of the journey we have gained a more profound awareness that the ultimate goal is optimal health.
