Creating a S.M.A.R.T goal for your weight loss and healthy eating
 
A S.M.A.R.T goal helps to promote self-improvement and make the goals you have attainable.
 
S-Specific
M-Measurable
A-Attainable
R-Realistic
T-Timely
 
Specific: A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal you must answer the six "W" questions: (Who, What, Where, When, Which, and Why)
 
Measurable - Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set. When you measure your progress, you stay on track, reach your target dates, and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs you on to continued effort required to reach your goal.
 
Attainable –You can attain most any goal you set when you plan your steps wisely and establish a time frame that allows you to carry out those steps. Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable, not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them. When you list your goals you build your self-image. You see yourself as worthy of these goals, and develop the traits and personality that allow you to possess them.

 

Realistic- To be realistic, a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work. A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide just how high your goal should be. But be sure that every goal represents substantial progress.
 
Timely – A goal should be grounded within a time frame. With no time frame tied to it there’s no sense of urgency. If you want to lose 10 pounds, when do you want to lose it by? "Someday" won’t work. But if you anchor it within a timeframe, "by May 1st", then you’ve set your unconscious mind into motion to begin working on the goal.
