SMART:
Specific
Measurable
Accountable
Realistic
Timeframe

Here’s how I¬†used SMART goal setting that helped me lose some weight.¬† A goal needs to be as specific as possible so you can work toward it and achieve it. “Lose weight” as a goal was vague and easily ignored without details..¬†I needed to answer specifics – why lose the weight, how much, when and how soon.

With extra weight I was tired, unhappy and nothing fit!¬†I wanted to feel good again and wear some of my favorite clothes!¬†Now this is getting specific….

I tracked my daily intake and exercise by using MyFitnessPal.com Рan online food and exercise journal that kept me accountable and watching my progress as I continued. It was measurable and gave me easy access to calorie counts, etc.   I also made sure my goal was realistic.  Too much or too soon only would lead to failure and disappointment.  Progress had to keep being made, but it had to happen slow enough to make it lasting.  I get discouraged easily  and losing weight has become increasingly harder over the years.  This is also why I enlisted a friend with a similar goal.  He kept me accountable and is an encouraging force to keep me moving in the right direction.
I gave myself a timeframe to hit specific milestones as well as a final number date.
Once I got going on losing the weight and making some mini-goal dates, it got easier to keep going to my ultimate goal weight.

The changes were in diet and lifestyle.¬† They became a way of life and not just a diet.¬† That’s the real goal – to be happy, healthy and wear¬†all my favorite clothing again!¬† Be SMART for 2015!¬†

Good morning all my T.U.F.F. friends!¬† Tomorrow marks our first month anniversary for the TUFF program and I’m very proud of the progress we’ve made together.¬† I couldn’t ask for a better launch team.¬† The new people I’ve met and been honored to work with over the last 30 days are inspiring and have immediately shown me how valuable this program is and will continue¬†to be.¬† I¬†am meeting¬†people who want fitness and good health as a lifestyle – not just¬† a temporary solution.¬† I am¬†encouraging people who work hard – sometime almost too hard! – and they are creating results and goal setting for new levels of achievement.

I am working¬†side by side with¬†people who have great energy and commitment and truly care – who will reach out and be that support and¬†honestly believe in what they are doing.¬† And that’s what it’s all¬†about…. caring for¬†people and taking care of yourself as well as each other.

You all inspire me and make me want to work that much harder.  I thank you and I look forward to the future and an incredible TUFF TEAM that rocks South Florida.

Ms. Patty
