Setting weight loss goals are meant to aid you through your journey. They need to be helpful for you, not some one else.
Do you want to reach a certain weight or do you want to wear a certain size? Do you want to be fit, do you want to live a healthy life, do you want to be a role model of good health? Do you want to ride that roller coaster or do you want to fit into that airplane seat? It is the answers to questions like these that will help you set weight loss goals that actually aid you through your journey.
Weight loss goals are also used to help keep you focused so you better be writing them down. They are there to look at when you are getting off track. Say you gained a pound this week, were you focused on your goals. Using the goals you write will help you stay on track by knowing what your next step is. How exactly do you know what that step is? Well, you write out your goals using SMARTER techniques and answers to questions.
