Do you have a weight loss goal? You must be specific about what you want. Decide the amount of weight you want to lose and make a note of the weight you are now and the weight you want to be. If you don’t know how much or don’t decide you’ll never know when you get there and won’t feel the same sense of achievement.
To ensure you’re not setting unreasonable goals, set a short-term goal and a long-term goal. The long-term goal can be the weight loss you expect in 3 months and the short-term goal could be the weight you will have lost after a week. Make your goals realistic, you can always change them if you start to lose more weight than you believed you could. You must believe in your goals. They’re yours after all, not anyone else’s. Why set yourself up to fail? Make sure your goals are achievable for you. A good measure to use when setting goals is to focus on losing 1-2 pounds of weight per week.
