Realistic goals allow you to tackle your weight one step at a time, making it easier for you to focus on your progress.
Your goals will help you stay motivated with along the way as you achieve your weekly or fortnightly goals.
You’re less likely to be disappointed by your progress if you set achievable goals than if you set yourself weight loss goals that are difficult or impossible to achieve.
