Blog Diet Tip # 17: Setting Achievable Goals


Setting a goal that is achievable is one of the cornerstones of The Blog Diet. That goal could be anything, whether it is cutting down the number of buffalo wings you eat from 12 to 6 at a sitting or using less salt. If you set small goals that you can reasonably achieve but still take some thought and conscious effort then in the aggregate those small goals will build up to your main one.

On May 26th I set a goal to lose 5 pounds by June 26th. That’s 5 pounds in a month, a reasonable amount of weight in a reasonable amount of time. After I set that goal I then embarked on a workout routine and decided what I was and was not going to eat to help me lose the weight. Here is my progress so far:

As you can see, The Blog Diet is working! I’m still far away from my ultimate goal of getting down to 170, have a 31 to 32 inch waist and maintaining those stats for the long haul, but I am getting there.

So set a goal, and go for it. You can do it.
