Realistic targets - TIP - WEIGHT LOSS

Losing 5 pounds in 30 days is a realistic target.

Losing 20 pounds in a week is not!

Be smart!

There is no point hitting a target by using pure will power to realize that you can't maintain a given discipline on the long term.

Make a quick reality check on your target before you try to implement it.

Ask yourself:
  • Is this something I will enjoy doing?
  • Can I maintain this new habit on the long term without major effort?
  • Is the impact on my body really healthy?
  • Is this something I can truly afford?
  • Do I have the time to implement this strategy?
  • Etc.
Following pipe dreams is a waste of time and energy.

What you want is make real changes, not dream about them and then miss your targets.
