My ultimate goal would be to get in the normal BMI range. But that’s a long way off. Like others I have short term goals of getting off the next 5lbs. Medium term I have goals of getting to where I was at previous points in my life.
I’m just coming to the end of my first MVFIA 30 days. I’ve found the contact and accountability very helpful and my next goal is to do another 30 days.
In business people talk about writing SMART goals.
When like me you’re looking at an ultimate goal that is so far away it is daunting, then it can be actually be destructive.
Getting through the next 30 days with specific commitments on diet and exercise is SMART. I think having some goals which aren’t just weight based will help me to continue with weight loss. In the past when I’ve failed to meet a specific target I’ve become disheartened and that contributes to me giving up.
