“The goal of weight loss is borne out of healthy living. The goal is not to lose 40 pounds in the next 12 weeks. The goal is to regain your health for the rest of your life.” – James Clear
Setting up short term weight loss goals will make it easier for you to stay motivated and on the right track. They are stepping-stones to the larger goal and will keep you engaged on a daily basis. They are the ones you meet “along the way”.
Your short-term weight loss goal for example, running for 30 minutes every day can be a stepping stone to reaching your long-term goal running in 10K marathon. Or taking on a 30-day challenge. Promise yourself that
you’re going to do this every day for 30 straight days without fail. Once you’re past that 30-day mark, you will celebrate it by going to a spa for a day.
