Times are tough. Money is tight. I'm not suggesting that you have to buy a bunch of gadgets, but it's my job to give you the edge and help you make informed decisions about your investments. And the truth is, the right tools—some of which you may already own—save you time, establish accountability, get you motivated, and build your foundation. You wouldn't trust a home constructed by a builder with makeshift tools.
Remember when you were a kid, how excited you were about your new clothes and cool lunch- box for the first day of school? Or how cool it was to move into your first apartment and buy your first broom, ladder, and laundry hamper? First day of school, first year out on your own, empirically both scary. You weren't scared; you were excited about your new "stuff," a fresh start, a chance to reinvent yourself. The tools make your journey easier, more exciting, and convenient. The right tools make your success more likely.
Weight-loss tools spark enthusiasm, the fuel your spirit needs. I've listed them in order of impact. That is to say, the items at the top of the list have been proven to have the most dramatic impact on the success of the people I work with. Spend your money wisely. Each of these investments you can expect to use daily.
