Setting Weight Loss Goals

Setting Acheivable Goals

Make it specific
For effective weight loss it is important to set specific goals. In doing this you can add motivation and focus to the task, rather than desire to lose some weight in the near future your objective becomes "I will be 2 stone lighter in three months".

Measure and Moniter
In order to measure weight loss you will need to make sure your weigh or measure yourself at regular intervals throughout your chosen time period. This should inspire you to acheive your goal.

It is very important that you ensure that the weight loss is acheivable for your current height and weight. Whilst you may feel it is vital you reach a goal weight of 7 and a half stone at 5'9" this isn't achievable if you want to maintain good health and look good. For radical weight loss it is good to set milestones or mini goals to aid motivation and make weight loss more acheivable.

Slow and Steady - keeping the weight off
Fast weight loss is great but it i keeping the weight off that is more imporant and harder to acheive. Slow, gradual weight loss will often enable you maintain the weight loss - avoiding the feeling of deprivation of strict diets, preventing binge eting or abandoning your goal.

Set a date
Setting a date enables you to focus and evaluate how you are progressing towards your goal. Allow time to evaluate and review your progress each week. This process will motivate you and make you appreciate how much you have acheived already, setting you on the right path to acheiving your final goal.
