The best way to lose weight – Set achievable goals


When thinking about losing weight, define what your real goals are.  Do you really want to weigh less, or do you actually want to feel more confident, be fitter, or look good in certain clothes?  You may find that adopting a healthier lifestyle and increasing your exercise doesn’t actually change the figures on the scales, but that you have more energy, have less body fat and start to look more toned and firm.  Set positive goals, rather than just wishing there was less of you.  This really is the best way for you to lose weight and maintain that weight loss.

Once you have defined what you want to achieve, set specific goals and timescales, but make sure these are realistic.  For example, ‘lose 5 lbs in 6 weeks’ rather than ‘lose a stone in a month’ or the even vaguer ‘lose a bit of weight’.  Having defined and achievable goals will help to motivate you.  The most common tip you will hear from someone who has lost weight or a professional who has helped someone else to lose weight is ‘Have a plan and set achievable goals’.

Another well kept secret tip is this; Don’t actually think of it as losing weight, think of it as gaining something else.
