Goal setting as far as exercising goes really seems to get the job done. Settinh specific detailed goals as far as my wokout goes helps me to stay focus and not get off track will in the gym. For example I set a goal to burn 500 calories in he gym 5 to 6 days a week, weight training 2 days.

    This is so true. I find that tracking my progress goes just as far. I love to see the gains I'm making. There are so many little indications that I am improving my health. When I'm doing strength training - I love it when I can do just those few more reps with a particular exercise. Walking or jogging just a little farther or faster or not having foot pain, calf pain, getting blisters getting short of breath after going a particular distance, etc. All these show me progres even when the scale doesn't. It helps keep me thinking of the long term benefits. Not just the nice figure for summer weather! emoticon
