Health Talk: Weight Lose Goals

So many people talk about losing weight and improving there lives. It happens more and more people want but don’t follow though. Are you ready to get started to lose the weight and improve your life. The way of life is to set “GOALS”.

Let’s jump into this post and show you why goal setting is a important part of the quest of losing weight. Goal setting is the overall process of losing weight. The process of setting goals continues to thrive and remain important in our lives.

 

Why is it such a important part?

Goal setting requires the establishment of a set in stone objectives. You have to pick ones that are achievable not out of control. You want short term goals in the began example don’t pick to lose 80lbs right away, shoot for a short goal like 10-20lbs.  By setting the short term goal and one that you can reach will motivate you to achieve that goal. In setting your goals, you enter into a personal covenant – one that binds you to your own word. Well of course, it is easier to break a promise you make to yourself than those you make to other people. However, goal setting should be a test of your personal integrity. After all, how can you keep your word to others if you cannot even keep a promise to yourself?

Goal setting is a powerful tool that makes you the master of your own future.

Your goals will determine your actions today that will affect your situation tomorrow.

Specifying your goals will help you determine where you should focus your resources and efforts. Goal setting is a blueprint to achieving what you want to achieve. You will have to Clarify your goals and what exactly you wanna achieve.

of sorts; one that will show you what to do and how to do it. Clarifying your goals will also weed out the distractions that can disrupt your progress. What exactly do you want to achieve? How long do you want to work to achieve it? What would you do to achieve your goal?

Make sure your goals are measurable, so that you will not become discouraged.

 

In fact, a very popular method of goal setting is that it has to be “SMART”!

Meaning, each letter in the word SMART stands for something:

S = Specific

The goal has to be specific. You cannot just wake up one day and declare that I have a goal of losing weight. That does not make any sense because that’s ultimately the destination, it’s not specific. How much weight do you want to lose exactly? Bad weight, water weight?

M = Measurable

Similarly, the goal has to be measurable. Since the site’s about Plexus slim, let me give you an example. A while ago, someone commented that her goal was to “control 80-90% of ther emotional eating and cravings with plexus slim…”, and I was like, OK, but how do you measure that!?

A much more measurable example = you can decide to lose 30 pounds in the next 8 months. That’s a measurable and specific goal.

A = Attainable

This is easy to understand. If you say, “I am going to cut down my fat to 5%!” that’s just ridiculous! Also, people saying they want to lose “200 pounds” when they are 320 right now is simply not attainable. And even if it might be “hypothetically”, the goal has to make sense “realistically”.

An obese weighing, say 200lbs says that she plans to lose about 30-35 pounds in the next 4-5 months, that’s very much an attainable goal.

R = Relevant

This doesn’t need explanation. Whatever you decide to be your goal, the means should be as relevant to it as possible.

T = Time based

Unless you have a specific time frame in your mind to attain that goal, it’s just a dream!

So here’s a recap on the secrets for goal setting:

1. Decide what you want.

2. Specify your goals. Think short term

3. Develop a step by step action plan – including a plan to monitor your progress and  your diet strategy.

4. Keep your goals realistic and constantly revisit them. Don’t expect to lose 10 pounds a week.

The more important aspect of goal setting is to keep your goal grounded. For instance, setting a goal to lose twenty pounds in 2 months may leave you disappointed. Setting goals to lose 2 pounds a week for ten weeks will allow you to achieve constant milestones.

Most folks who fail at losing weight either give up half way because the set ridiculous goals, or fail because they didn’t set any! So, keep this in mind that you want to set realistic and achievable goals.

Now, once you have decided on your goals, stick to them and see them through to the very end… because once you get to where you want to be you’ll see that every step of the journey was totally worth it!
