Weight Loss Goal Incentives. Unrealistic and overly aggressive weight-loss goals can undermine your efforts. I don't think I'm the only one who does this, right?
Though slimming down is certainly a common motivation behind fitness, the real-world progress you feel can be a much more powerful incentive to keep going. When it comes to weight loss, then, a goal to eat fruit for dessert, rather than cake, is specific and can be clearly tracked.. And now it's time to show yourself how proud you are of your success with a reward.
To raise your dopamine levels, set small goals rather than setting your sights on the finish line.
Meeting each smaller goal adds up to the bigger goal, and will keep your motivation high as you accomplish your tasks and plan simple rewards for meeting those goals.
First off, just out of curiosity, did you go through your pantry like I did and eat all the junk food the day before you started your new goals? Think of weight loss as a journey, not a destination. Unrealistic and overly aggressive weight-loss goals can undermine your efforts.
