What’s Your Weight Goal?

What’s Your Weight Target?

Would you ever get on a plane without knowing your destination?
Err, I don’t think so!

Dieting is no different!
We need a destination – a weight goal to aim for.
So we can measure our weight loss progress.

Sensible Weight Target Guidelines

  • If you have less than 15 pounds to lose, aim to lose 1 pound/week.
  • If you have 15-45 pounds to lose, aim to lose 1.5-2 pounds/week.
  • If you have 45+ pounds to lose, aim to lose 2-3 pounds/week.

These guidelines may seem slow, but they allow for occasional lapses which you are BOUND to have!

Weight Chart

Before starting a diet, decide what weight you want to be. Then write out a weight chart and measure your weight loss progress.

  • Record every pound of weight you lose.
  • Record every inch of fat that disappears.
  • It’s fun, and it’s VERY motivating.

Maybe this advice sounds too obvious, but you’d be amazed at how many dieters start dieting WITHOUT doing a weight chart to help monitor their weight loss progress.
