When I tell people not to set a weightloss goal, they are usually surprised. But here’s why!
- Make your goal something completely within your control – effort based!
- If it MUST be performance-based, make sure that it is not based upon something that is related to so many different things, like the number on the scale is!
- If it has to be tied to a number for it to be measurable, make it a number of reps, or at the very numberiest (yes, that is a word now), make it the number on a measuring tape – this is a much more accurate measurement of progress than the scale!
- Remember why you started working out in the first place, and tie a goal to that – it doesn’t have to be about weight loss! You want to be healthier, stronger, faster, more flexible, harder to kill, right? Make a goal tied specifically to that!
