To achieve dietary success, you need a well-defined goal! I’m often amazed to see how many people begin a diet program with no real goal in mind. You may be thinking â€œYeah, yeah, I already have goals,â€ but do you really?
Frankly, Iâ€™ll be the first to tell you that if your goal is something like â€œI want to lose some weightâ€ or â€œI want to be thinner,â€ then you might as well throw in the towel before you even step in the ring.
These types of ambiguous goals arenâ€™t motivating in any way, shape or form.
If you really want to set yourself up for success, you need to give yourself something quantifiable to shoot for.
â€œI want to lose 20 poundsâ€ is an ideal goal, while â€œI want to lose 20 pounds in 10 weeksâ€ is even better.
At the same time, make sure your goals are realistic. The perfect goal is one that is challenging without being too farfetched.
