Have you reached your weight loss goal? Very few do. I hope you are one of those who have reached the end of your weight loss phase. You had a goal to lose a certain number of pounds and you have completed the goal. Now it’s time to set a new goal. When one goal ends, a new one begins. You should always have a goal in mind, always working toward an end. Seniors in particular need goals. Being goal oriented can instill motivation, a sense of purpose, and pride in accomplishment.
You should have mental goals such as playing thought-provoking games, reading books, and entering into dialogue with others. You should have physical goals such as walking each day, toning up with weights and fun fitness. Have projects in mind, always unable to exhaust them. With weight, the goal should always be to maintain your weight loss. Keep track with the scale and if you begin to creep up, get right into weight loss mode and get it off. You will never finish this goal, but keeping it as a prize set before you will pay big dividends.
