5 Easy Steps To Help You Reach Your Goal Weight

I feel like sometimes goal weights can impossible to reach. But they are a goal for a reason, and today I'm going to be sharing with you a few easy steps to help you hopefully reach that goal a little sooner!!

1. Keep Track.
Watching your daily calories can be tedious, however it is definitely a motivation. Look up calorie amounts and write them down in a food journal or an app like "my fitness pal". Count everything you put in your mouth even if it's a mint you grabbed from your favorite restaurant!!

2. Measure, Measure, Measure. 
Make sure you are using your measuring cups, spoons, and food scales on a daily basis. When you measure out the correct proportions, you are setting yourself up for success. If you try to eyeball your cereal, it will not be the correct/appropriate amount!

3. Save Calories.
Try and find easy ways to save a few extra calories. Switch out that coke for water. Use a turkey patty instead of beef. Snack on fresh veggies instead of a health bar.

4. Set Small Goals And Celebrate Them.
Loosing weight doesn't happen over night, it takes a long time. So if you set small goals for yourself you will feel successful along the way. Do not 'celebrate' with food or drinks (you're not a dog...), celebrate with pedicures and new workout clothes!

5. Eat 5 Times A Day.
I think this is my personal favorite tip because I love food ;). But really, to keep yourself from starving, keep a strict schedule of eating 5 times a day.
8am- breakfast
10- healthy snack (yogurt, banana)
12- lunch
3- healthy snack
6- dinner

Do you have any tips to help us reach our goal weights? Leave them in the comments!!

  1. I totally agree with you. Last summer I started working out and doing Zumba. I also practice a strict diet before. I'm currently enjoying the outcome. :) I'll keep in track again after Christmas break. Love this post.

  3. Losing those last 5 pounds for me is the hardest...especially this time of year LOL!

  4. You make a lot of great points here Nicole! I hate counting calories and measuring all the time, but I do cut out most unhealthy things from my diet and usually try to eat smaller portions. I think the culprit is sugar and processed foods!
