Happy New Year!
It’s that time of year when many people have made New Year’s resolutions to lose weight. It won’t come as a surprise to you that most of them won’t succeed, and will quickly abandon their resolutions. Maybe that even sounds familiar.
While it’s a great idea to set health goals for yourself, I don’t think it’s a good idea to set a weight number goal.
Some people have health conditions that are improved by losing weight. Others just want to feel more comfortable in their own skin.
Either way, it is a far better idea to focus on improving your health habits than deciding you want to lose 25 pounds.
There are many reasons for this, including that your chances of success are so much better when you set goals that involve changing your habits instead of focusing on the number on the scale.
Listen to this week’s episode to learn why you should focus on health goals, and not a specific weight loss goal this year, and a few goals to consider.
Here’s to a healthy and happy new year!
