ASHEVILLE, N.C., Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Type-A Mom Dieting Editor and Registered Dietitian Denise Reynolds, RD LD/N, explains that people who have the most success at dieting and weight loss are those who create goals for themselves and continually monitor their progress toward their desired outcome. SMART is an acronym for the goal setting process that takes vague statements such as "I want to lose weight" and transforms them into a targeted strategy for measurable success.
Clear, well-thought-out goals are vital to realizing healthy lifestyle changes because most of our actions are habits that we have fallen into over the course of many years. We may have lost the motivation over time because they seem overwhelmingly difficult to accomplish and maintain. Creating and attacking a specific plan is a great motivational tool because accomplishments are objectively measured and can bring about a renewed self-confidence and self-esteem. Reynolds shares a step by step guide to establishing SMART goals for weight loss.
