Believing in yourself is important to achieving weight loss success. Having faith in your capabilities gives you incentive to push through challenges.  Studies show that the more that you believe in yourself, the greater your chances are of success. Setting practical goals can help improve your faith in yourself. Research shows that setting and meeting attainable goals improves self-efficacy.

Some practical goals you can set include gradual changes in your habits. For example, plan on short periods of exercise a few days a week and building up your routine as much as you are comfortable with. Avoid being overly ambitious and setting extreme goals such as working out an hour everyday, or signing up for a marathon, after you have been sedentary for so long. Consider how long you can commit to your goals. If you can’t stick to it long-term, then your goal is not practical.

There are a lot of habits your Diet Center program encourages you to develop (i.e. drink more water, watch your sodium, prepare healthy foods, avoid dining out, etc.). Try taking one step at a time. Trying to achieve too many goals at once can be overwhelming. Keep in mind that you believe in your ability to accomplish your goals. Your faith in yourself will help you persevere and achieve weight loss success.
