Small Goals Make for Big Results – Day 10
How does it feel to have gotten through ten whole days of a new lifestyle?
I am really glad that you are here with me every day and learning new things and trying new things to stick with your program.
Today, I want to talk to you about goals. You know, most of the time, when we start out on something like this, you’re going to have this big goal in mind. In other words, when I started on my goal, I said I want to lose 40 pounds. And that’s a really large number.
So what I want to tell you is whatever your number is–it could be 10 pounds, 20 pounds, 30 pounds–what I want you to do is break it into smaller goals so that it’s not so daunting.
You can think, “Well, it’s going to take me forever to lose 70 pounds or 50 pounds or 30 pounds.” But if you say, “I want to lose five pounds by the end of the month,” that is a very reasonable goal.
It just makes seeing easier; it seems more achievable. And we all know we can really push ourselves to lose five pounds in a short amount of time.
So that’s the way I want you to approach your weight loss. Just increments and little bits, and you’ll be surprised at how quickly those numbers add up.
That’s my message for today. See you tomorrow.
