Weight-loss goals. The difference between failure or success. If you have a well-planned, realistic goal, it will keep you motivated and will help you convert your thoughts into action.
Proper goal setting makes you the master of your own future. Tomorrow is directly affected by the actions you take today. And guess what? You did what you did today because of the goals you have set.
If you set specified goals, you will determine where you should focus your efforts. It will also weed out the distractions that can hinder your progress.
Unrealistic weight-loss goals are a bad idea as they will undermine your efforts.
There are two types of goals for weight loss.
The first goal focus on the desired outcome you want to achieve. This goal gives you a target but does not address how you will achieve it.
The second goal is a process goal which focus on the steps to take to achieve the desired outcome.
For example, a process goal may be to walk 30 minutes each day and to drink water with every meal. -process goals are very helpful for weight loss as you focus on changing habits necessary for weight loss.
Set SMART goals
Both your process and target goals should be according to these criteria:
* * *
Long-term and short-term goals
To make your overall goal more manageable you should set long-term goals which is then divided into many smaller weekly and daily goals - like bite-sized pieces.

Keep track of your weight loss goals. There are many tracking tools available online or you may visit the app store for a goal tracking app.
* * *
Set realistic goals within a reasonable time frame
We have good intentions but within three days we bury them in a bowl of ice cream. Setting realistic goals means to take real stock of what you can do within a said time.

Adjust your goals as needed
As you make progress in your weight loss plan, you will sometimes have to change your goals. That is ok an allow for that.
* * *
Allow for setbacks
Every successful person has experienced setbacks. That is a normal part of life and a normal part of behavioural change.
* * *
Stay open minded
To be open-minded means to be flexible, an important key to successful change. Remember that we cannot learn new habits overnight and that it will take time.
“Success is the sum of small efforts—repeated day-in and day-out.” —Robert Collier
