Weight Loss Goals – How to Make Them Attainable and Reach Them

weight loss goalsWith the Christmas holiday parties behind us and the New Year around the corner, the most popular New Year’s resolution is likely to be on your mind – losing weight. The quest to be healthy inside and out is an important and demanding goal. If it’s as simple as burning more calories than you consume on a daily basis, how come so few people come close to the fit and trim bodies they want so badly?

You might think that by riding on the bandwagons of the latest fad diet you might lose weight fast. That’s usually not true. It takes a tremendous amount of consistency and discipline to effectively lose weight. Taking the Skinny Fiber 90-day challenge is a great place to start, but you also need to get your head right so you can commit and stick to the plan.

Here are a few tips on how to set attainable weight loss goals:

1. Learn to commit, as commitment means doing whatever it takes. Regardless of however your day turns out, never break your regimen. Every now and then you’ll end up making mistakes like getting tempted to eat a burger or gorging at the corporate buffet, but just remember to stay on track. Fall seven times, stand up ten.

2. Create a SMART plan. You hear this a lot in business and management seminars, but it applies to ever goal-setting aspect of your life. Keep your goals Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Reachable and Time-Bound. This keeps your weight loss goals tangible and makes sure you’re not biting off more than you can chew (literally).

You can take your cues from the BMI index or you might want to go back to how much you seemed to weigh in pictures of your younger self. A number helps you track how many calories you need to lose on a daily basis. For a start, try to lose one or two pounds of weight per week.

4. Focus on eating more veggies, lean protein, and drinking more water. Less simple carbohydrates (like sugar, bread, potatoes, etc.) and more fiber. Less soda and juice, more water. These are very simple tenets of health and weight loss, but you can easily forget them when you’re surrounded by a smorgasbord of processed food choices at the grocery store. Structure your diet according around eating whole foods and take care of your food intake.

5. Create a support system. Ask your loved ones and significant other to keep you on track for those times when you’re craving for french fries or getting too lazy about going jogging for the day. Your partner would be most interested in keeping you trim and fit, so keep him or her close by encouraging an active regimen for both of you. You can also join our Facebook support group so you can interact with like-minded individuals online. Helping others reach their weight loss goals while you try to attain your own is a great way to stay on track.

6. Celebrate the small victories. Mustering the will to not go to your weekend barbecue shindigs takes a sheer amount of willpower. So does getting out of bed and onto the treadmill. Even if you can’t always measure your success in pounds lost or laps run around, you still need to congratulate yourself for keeping your discipline in check. Celebrate even when the loss is only a pound or two. It helps to strengthen your confidence as you go through withdrawal pangs and cravings. Small victories also build towards the overall goal and complete victory of seeing your desired weight on the scale. Imagine how good you’ll feel about yourself across the mirror.

7. Move your body. If you want to take the next step and systematize your regimen, workout regularly and find a process that works in line with your goals for your body. You might consider getting the advice of a trainer who can advise you about correct nutrition and who you can consult with so you waste no time in reaching your goal. If that’s not an option for you (or you simply prefer not to go that route), there are lots of free workout sources you can use, like Blogilates, BeFit, and Spark People.

The maxim holds true: no pain, no gain. The same is almost always true with any goal, whether it be physical pain or mental anguish and cravings. Just hold on to how good you’ll feel inside and out a few months from now, if you decide to finally commit. It’s all up to you.
