Making the Right Kind of Resolutions
Every year, most everyone sets some sort of resolution for themselves– for many people, that involves some sort of weight loss or wellness goal. While it is great to set these standards for oneself, too often do people either set goals that are too vague to actually measure, or too massive to reasonable reach. On this page, you can learn the right way to set weight loss goals so they actually stick.
You can’t set a goal if you don’t know the purpose of said goal. Think about what you’re trying to achieve, and why you’re trying to achieve it. Are you setting this goal because you want to, or because someone else has suggested that you do it? Your goals should only be made for yourself, otherwise you won’t feel satisfied no matter the end result.
Chances are, if you want to lose weight, you want to look and feel good. From that point, you can figure out what a marker for looking and feeling good would be. If you’re setting more than one goal, make a hierarchy of said goals and devote more energy to those at the top.
SMART goals are goals that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-bound. By setting a specific goal with specific numbers to hit over a realistic timeframe, you are far more likely to achieve said goal. For instance, your goal shouldn’t simply be “lose weight.” Your goal should be “lose 25 pounds by July.” This allows you to break down exactly what you need to do to achieve said goal.
If you keep your goals in mind, chances are, they won’t stay in mind. As the days go by, you’ll forget exactly what it is you wanted to do. By writing down your goals, you are making them tangible. You can go back and review said goal to make sure you’re on track. This is especially effective if you put them in some place you will see it every day– inspiring you to keep going. Creating a timeline for said goal that you cross off as you hit certain milestones can be especially rewarding.
4. Regularly reevaluate
Chances are, as the year goes on, your goal will have to change. Perhaps you find you hit your milestones too quickly, or maybe that things are moving too slowly, and it’s stressing you out. Don’t just give up. Keep things moving by reevaluating how your progress is going. Your routine might have to change regularly, and that is okay, what matters most is forward progress.
Weight loss is a difficult, personal journey. If you find you are scrambling to hit your goals, you’re not alone.
