I'd like to lose about a pound a week, but I'm not setting a weekly weight loss goal every week this year. Instead, I'm setting fitness and diet goals every week and letting the weight loss happen as a result of my meeting the fitness and diet goals. This week, for example, my fitness goal is simply to do some type of workout everyday. My diet goal is to only eat when I'm truly hungry -- not as a result of anxiety, boredom, etc. Every week, my goals will build on themselves so that over time, my eating and exercise habits become better and better.
