Setting goals is one thing – but trying to achieve them is completely different and can seem more difficult.

However the best way to lose weight successfully is to create both Short Term Goals and Long Term, weight loss goals. You may find it easier to set short term goals which will accumulate and result in long term goals and successful results.

To encourage and motivate yourself pick something up that weighs between 2 -3 kilograms and you will find that it is pretty heavy and that’s fat you have lost. Looking at your weight loss challenge this way will actually keep you inspired and motivated.

Do not allow yourself to forget the weight loss goals you have set for yourself and keep reminding yourself of your long term goal. Perhaps keep a record of your weight loss results maybe even keep a journal or get a picture of a slimmer you or even if you have never been slim keep a pic visible of how good you will look and feel once you have achieved your goal.

Don’t ever forget your why – why do you want to lose weight?
