How to start and keep a weight loss program
Determine a long-term vision of where you want to be (in weight, fitness, endurance or strength), but also the “baby steps” and checkpoints along the way. It is so important to write these goals down and track them so you can see the progress you are making. Be specific with a time frame and exactly what you want to do. For example: “I am going to walk for health 20 minutes four days this week” (short-term goal) or “In six months, I am going to run a 5k” (long-term goal).
