Set Goals And Build Slowly

General goals like “weight loss” are fine, but having short-term and long-term goals is a better way to stay motivated and on track.  Think three weeks, three months, or three years down the road and decide on a specific goal.  Something like a marathon is an excellent ultimate goal that can motivate you, but all you really need is some point down the road that you’d like to get to.

The reason most people don’t make significant gains is they start out with a weak plan that’s just too aggressive. If you start at a slower level and build up more gradually, then you’re more liable to be successful.  Don’t expect that you’re going to get in great shape in a matter of weeks either, it’s just not going to happen.  Consistency is key.
