    I was just having a little browse around the slimfast website, I've not really had a good look before. I found this.....





    You can’t control how much weight you lose, but you can control the efforts you make to lose it – so that's what you need to base your goals on.
    For example, good goals would be:

    1. walk for 20 minutes each day
    2. go through the day without eating a biscuit
    Bad goals would be:

    1. lose two pounds in a week
    2. lose lots of weight
    These are things you can’t control, and could therefore leave you feeling deflated if you don’t achieve them.
    When you’ve achieved one of your goals, tick it off – you’ll soon feel great within yourself, and lose the unwanted weight.




    I thought it to be a very sensible way of thinking actually, and definitely something I will be looking into. I know I am definitely guilty of setting myself up for 'failure' by setting myself weightloss targets weekly/monthly, and if I don't manage to achieve them, feeling like a complete waste of space, and thinking that all my hard work has been for nothing, which in turn makes me depressed and therefore eat!!!
