Set Reasonable Goals
What's your goal, and more important, when do you want to accomplish it? If you want to lose 15 pounds, you might just need two months or so to reach that goal. If you're looking to lose significant weight, you might have a long road ahead of you. To stay on track, set milestones that you can work toward, as opposed to only setting a grand end goal. Record your goals in a journal and include dates. Your goals could be a target weight, minutes spent walking, miles run in a week or limiting the amount of junk food you consume.
