Instead of setting the goal of a 50 lb. weight loss, aim for 5 lbs. A small goal gives you something to focus on and hopefully a reward rather quickly. When you look at 50 lbs., it can seem like an insurmountable goal that will take forever. And the good news is, once you have removed 5 lbs. from your body, you will be building on the previous success by focusing on a new 5 lb. goal!
