Just read this article about setting realistic goals

I need to change my mindset.
I would like to learn to say no to unhealthy foods or other foods that will cause me to overeat.

I need to lose weight.
I would like to lose weight because of my health.  I am also self-conscious about my weight.

I need to exercise daily.
I would like to exercise for at least 20-30 minutes, five days per week.

I need to affirm myself daily.
To build my self-esteem, affirmations and application of said affirmations are something that I would like to do daily.

I have so much to do and I need to have my mind renewed daily.
In order to do well, I would like to learn to set my goals one day at a time.  I will pray to the Lord for the renewal of my mind.

I need to lose 2 lbs a week, but it is hard.
I would like to lose between 1-2 lbs per week.

I can't lose weight and I am frustrated.
To be less frustrated, I would like to apply my affirmations daily so that the frustration will be less.  I would like learn what is causing the frustration and act on it.

I am afraid that I won't act on what I have affirmed.  I am just afraid that I will fail.
I am not perfect and I should not expect perfection daily.  I would like to keep pressing forward and not give up.

I need to lose weight because life will be easier for me.
I would like to lose weight and not take my for granted.  There are things that I am now able to do that others take for granted.

I will never lose weight because I feel alone.
Getting support is a very good thing.  There are others who are doing the same thing I am doing and I am to take their advice seriously.

I must have a strong mindset.
I would like to change my mindset one moment at a time, one day at a time.

Weight loss is hard.
Weight loss is a journey and I would like to continue on that journey.

My goals of losing weight will never be accomplished.  It will take too long to lose weight.
My realistic goal is to lose weight, keeping it off, and not give up.  Worrying about the time period will make things harder.
