Make Your Goal Specific

You've set a goal now, and that's great! But make sure your goal is specific. Planning to lose 35 pounds, for example, is far better than planning to lose "some" weight. You will likely lose some weight, but you probably won't lose the full 35 unless you hold it in your mind as the destination of your journey.

The journey metaphor is apt. Imagine getting in the car to go on a family vacation without a clear idea of where you wanted to go. You'd drive around aimlessly, and you would certainly get somewhere, but it probably wouldn't be the same place you'd end up if you'd chosen a destination at the start. It's the same thing with weight loss. Any behavioral psychologist will tell you that you are more likely to achieve change in your life if you have a specific picture in your mind of how you want to change.
