Whaaaaaat? Abandon my fat loss goal?
Nia’s gone crazy!
No. No I have not. At least, not entirely.
Goals can be a good thing, but sometimes they may not be the best thing to focus on. This can especially be the case when it comes to specific fat loss goals.
If you have a fat loss goal such as reaching a certain body weight or body fat percentage, then I encourage you to abandon those goals for a period of time . . . and to focus on the process and the actions you can take on a daily basis instead.
And I have some dang good reasons why.
But first, let’s look at some common fat loss goals people have:
- Weigh X amount
- Obtain X percentage of body fat
- Wear X pant size
- Reach X waist measurement
Seems harmless, right? By striving to reach that goal of weighing less or wearing a smaller pair of jeans you’ll be motivated to keep working out and eating well.
Not so fast. Let’s discuss five disadvantages to having specific fat loss goals, like those mentioned above.
