Secrets of Success

Change Your Weight Loss Ticker To Match Smaller Goals~break It Down.



I used to get so frustrated looking at my wt. loss ticker. Went to a new Dr. last week. As we discussed my weight, he asked me what my Goal wt. is. I gave him a low number equaling -75 lbs. He gently said, why not just get from Obese into Overweight BMI for now. Then get from Overweight into Healthy. Then at that time determine Final Goal. Then Maintenance. I came home and changed my SP Wt. Loss Ticker to the first goal. Much less daunting. My 4-step Goal Plan is such a relief. Break it down.

  • Sometimes breaking a big task into more manageable chunks can be just the thing you need to stay motivated. I'm glad your doctor helped you to see this. Keep up the good work. - by JOGSWITHDOGS

    I LOVE that your doctor talked to "gently" as you describe and encouraged you to set a series of goals. It seems that so many health practitioners are hard-hearted or down right mean when talking to us about our weight issues. Bravo to your doctor and Bravo to YOU!!!! - by BACKTOME2013
