The importance of goals in weight loss. I know goals are important in everything in life. Just about every diet plan stresses the need for goals, not just fat burning diets. I just reached 85 pounds lost and I still don’t have a long term goal set. My short time weight loss goal was and still is to lose 100 pounds by the end of the year. That will be about 9 and a half months.
I’m sure I won’t have a problem reaching that following the fat burning diet that I use. I’m just not clear on how much further I need to go after that.
Ideal weight charts suck. I’m 6’1” I have seen as low as 164 and as high as 225 on different charts. Those numbers both seem wrong to me. I haven’t been below 220 since I have been this height. So therefore as far as weight I can’t set a number. I think somewhere between 200 and 210 but I don’t know for sure. I know 164 is freaking nuts. Hell I’d rather stay fat than be that skinny.
I figure I’ll know it when I get there. Fat burning diets focus on building muscle while losing fat. I’m hoping at around 205 with a low body fat percentage I’ll reach the shape I’m looking for. Who knows in the end I may even shoot for 225. So I guess it is not always possible to set an actual number when it comes to weight loss goals.
I definitely am beginning to believe the tape measure is much more important than the scale when it comes to burning fat.
