Set a Fitness Goal Unrelated to Weight Loss
When you're focused on losing weight, it's easy to get frustrated when the pounds don't melt off right away. All too often, we psych ourselves out and quit before we really get started. Try instead to set a goal of jogging a mile without stopping or completing 20 full-body push-ups. Adjust the goal to be challenging for your current fitness level. When you start looking at your body in terms of how strong and fit you are, you'll be more likely to stay on track.
