Want to shed some pounds? Set yourself up for success with the right goals. You may have a long-term goal for your scale. But, in the short term, start with two or three simple goals. These could be adding fruit to your breakfast, not eating after 8 p.m. or walking for a half hour during lunch. Make sure your goals are realistic and healthy.
If you have a bad day, take a deep breath and start fresh the next day. Need help with your goals? Go to choosemyplate.gov and check out SuperTracker. This tool from the United States Department of Agriculture can help you figure out how much and what to eat, how to track what you eat and lots more!
