They say that you should not set goals on your “fitness goals”. It sounds weird. But I honestly read that somewhere. Their argument is that, if you want to lose weight, stop stressing over the exact weight. Why? Because once you achieved your goal weight, you’d say, “Hurray! Now I can stop dieting and get back to eating whatever I want!”
True? Probably. I am guilty with that some times. But still, I contest. Different strokes for different folks.
For me, if I don’t set a specific goal, one that i can measure, investigate, and plan around, i’d end up not doing any progressive thing at all.
I believe it has something to do with focus and motivation. If I measure things on a regular basis, it gets me to focus on the trend and the direction of whatever it is am doing. And that gets me motivated at the same time. If the scale said I gained weight, I would get pissed and started to diet effectively that day. And if I would lose weight and be closer to my goals, then i’d know that I did something right and be happy to repeat it the following days or get back to it everytime I messed up.
