HOUSTON -- Want to lose weight this New Year’s? Be realistic. “When making a resolution, you need to set reasonable, realistic, and measurable goals based on behavior, not only pounds lost,” said Molly Gee, a nutritionist at the Baylor College of Medicine (BCM). “Then, find an exercise routine you will enjoy and follow on a consistent basis.”

Registered dietitians at Baylor said motivation lies in keeping people focused on the end result. One way to do that is by regularly reminding yourself why you felt such strong motivation to improve your health, and consider the potential consequences on your health if you do not take action.

Baylor College of Medicine nutritionists and weight loss experts recommend that you:

•Use short-term goals. For example, during week one, just take three- to 10- minute walks. These smaller goals will be easier to attain, and with each new success you will become more motivated.

•Fight discouragement. If you take a night off from exercising or choose to have a cookie one afternoon, don’t feel you have failed. Think about how far you have come, take pride in your progress, and get back on track.

•Celebrate each small goal you accomplish.
