Maximum Weight Loss

Introduction

We’ve probably all said at one time or another “I want to lose weight,” “I want to be more active,” or “I’d like to eat better.” So how do you get there? How do you make that thing happen?

When you set out to make any sort of change, no matter what it may be, setting a goal to work towards, or many small goals to break up the long road ahead, gives you a way to measure success. And when it comes to losing weight and getting healthier, setting goals that you can work towards is as important as watching what you eat and staying active.

When you focus on achieving a goal, it helps you push out of your comfort zone and into your “stretch zone,” the place where self-discovery happens and new habits can be formed. And when you’re focusing on doing a positive behavior, you’re more likely to do other positive behaviors. Good attracts good. Health attracts health.

As you think about your approach to this program, and the healthy lifestyle behaviors that you’re continuing to work on and practice, set goals that can help you get you where you want to go. Use TajQí to set weekly goals that will support you to stay on track. And make sure you’re setting SMART* goals: Specific, Measureable, Achievable, Relevant, and Timely.

S - Specific

Each week, you need to choose a SPECIFIC area of focus (for Shakes, Entrees, Veggies/Fruits, or Physical Activity). Of course, you always want to be working on ALL of these areas, but your focus area is where you are looking to improve, specifically.

M - Measurable

Once you select your focus area, you will be prompted to set a numbers-based goal. Rather than hoping to “exercise more,” we’ll ask you to choose a weekly total to aim for, preferably above the minimums of the diet plan. At the end of the week, you can evaluate your progress towards your goal.

A - Achievable

You want to be sure your goal is a bit of a stretch, but is still attainable. As with any goal, you want to think about what it will take to achieve it. So be sure to be making strides towards your goal each day.

R - Relevant

Be sure to choose the focus area that makes the most sense for you. A good rule of thumb is to always focus on the food part of the equation first and foremost, because that’s where greater weight loss is derived (80% of weight loss comes from what you eat, while about 20% comes from exercise). So, if you have been struggling to meet your daily minimums for either Shakes or Entrees, or if you have been eating off the diet, choose the focus area that will support you to stay full and following the diet precisely.

T - Timely

This is for one week at a time, which is a manageable amount of time to focus on a goal and then reassess an area of focus for the next week. Now that you’re SMART about setting goals, be sure to set a one each week.
