Setting goals to lose weight

Setting goals to lose weight

If you want to lose weight you must set yourself a goal.  Not doing so will cause you to wander aimlessly, not knowing where you’re up to or how you’re going.

A quality goal must meet the following criteria:

1.  It must be Specific – You know you need to lose weight, but just saying “I really need to lose weight…”, is not enough.  Your goal must be well-defined.  Be as specific as possible.  

2.  It must be Measurable – Be clear how you will recognize when you have achieved your goal weight.  What exactly do you want to weigh?  What will your future dress size be?  Are you starting to get excited?  Think about how achieving this goal is going to make you feel! 

3.  It must be Attainable –  Setting yourself goals that you cannot possibly achieve will only end in disappointment.  Make your goal challenging but realistic.  Are you able to do what needs to be done?  Does your timeframe give you enough time to achieve your goal?  Set yourself up for success!

4.  It must be Relevant – Step back and get an overview of all the different areas of your life.  Consider how relevant your goal is to the overall picture. 

5.  Time – Set a time scale for completion of your goal.  Does this allow enough time to safely achieve your goal?  For those doing the Fit Yummy Mummy Summer Transformation Challenge, you can set yourself a date in 12 weeks from the day you started because that’s when the challenge will end!
