Setting goals for weight loss helps an individual increase the awareness of his own weaknesses and strengths and how capable he or she is in sticking to a disciplined routine. Without setting clear goals, a person may not be able to execute his/her weight loss program earnestly. A weight loss program without set goals is like a ship without radar. Goals will help people to develop unique plan regarding health, diet and exercising and also how to follow them with diligence. However, this type of planning may have several disadvantages too. When a person is not able to attain the goal of losing weight in the targeted time, he or she may experience a sense of failure which would prevent him or her from setting future weight loss goals. Failure to achieve the set goals must not pose as a deterrent since goal setting has more positive effects than negative.
