Focus, focus, focus. When you decided to lose weight and start your healthy lifestyle journey
you have to focus on what you want to accomplish. One way to stay focused is to write realistic goals for the month. Your goals have to be realistic. Losing 20 pounds in a month isn’t a realistic goal. Can it be done, probably, but it isn’t realistic.
On average you should lose 4 pounds a month. Weight loss isn’t supposed to be quick, although some have done it fast. One of the consequences of losing weight to fast and not incorporating strength training is having extra skin.
Next month I want you to prepare to stay focused on your journey by writing down 3 realistic
goals you want to accomplish. Your three goals don’t have to deal with weight loss.
For example, one of my goals is to drink 96 ounces of water everyday. I also have business goals I want to reach each month.
Your goals should be SPECIFIC, MEASURABLE, ACHIEVABLE, REALISTIC and TIME-BOUND.
Here is an example:
By the end of August (or the month you are starting) I want to loose 4 pounds. This goal is measurable, achievable (on average you should 1 pound a week), realistic and time-bound.
I want you to say your goals every day for 30 days out loud. Say your goals whenever you can. You are only saying three. Before you say them I want you to say Isaiah 55:11, then go into saying your goals.
Can you do it? Yes you can.
