Set Realistic Goals

Effective goals must be realistic and yet inspiring. Don't set targets that are so far out of reach that you know you can not make them. To lose 5kg [11lbs] of weight in one week is an unrealistic target but over six months (200 grams per week) you can surely make it if you really wanted to. To be inspiring the goal should be slightly out of your reach. Put in a little bit of "stretch" to make it a worth while and yet realistic goal.
