Make Small Weight Loss Goals

Instead of looking at the 100lbs you want to lose by the end of the year, make smaller goals to loose 1.5-2lbs a week. That way when you reach your goal early or on time you are more motivated to keep doing the right things.

    I like this tip. I have 102 pounds to lose by the end of the year. I figured out that I will have to lose 3 pounds a week to reach my goal on time. When I think of 102 pounds, it seems impossible, but working on 3 pounds I don't feel overwhelmed.
