Q2: What are the short-term goals when trying to lose weight?
Focus on one to five pounds at a time. It takes a metabolic debt of 3,600 calories to lose a pound and that can come from calories burned or calories not consumed. Short-term goals should initially be behavioral in nature, like setting a goal to go to the gym at least a certain amount of times a week more than you previously did, sticking to a healthier meal plan for at least one month, or cutting out soda or heavy drinking from now on. Little behavior adjustments add up and will eventually lead you to your big, long-term goals.
