Diet Tip #1:
Setting your sights in your target weight does not mean that you should shoot the bathroom scale.
Although this may appear to be the only way to make the scale show what you really want to see... nothing. The Mayo Clinic has some better tips for goal setting. Realistic weight-loss expectations can mean the difference between success and failure. Realistic, well-planned weight-loss goals keep you focused and motivated, while unrealistic and aggressive ones can undermine your efforts.
