Setting Realistic Weight Goals

Luma Learning Strategies in the Transportation Industry

It is almost the new year. Do you know that this is the busiest time for people to consider losing weight? It is common to set a goal for the new year only to give up by the first week. We all have good intentions when we set goals. What tends to happen, though, is the goal is either too vague or too large to tackle, making its attainment unrealistic. When you do not have a plan in place, your goal can become overwhelming. This learning lesson will help you put this plan in place for 2020!
