When starting a new diet it is always important to be realistic. Is your goal weight the same as a model’s weight? You probably won’t end up looking like a model, and it might be too frustrating to compare yourself to that. Instead, try comparing yourself to what you used to look like. Losing weight, in any amount, is a good thing.

And besides, don’t forget, most pictures of models are edited with Photoshop, so that’s not how they really look either.
