Goal setting is pivotal for your weight loss success. Setting goals can help you to really understand exactly what you should do, how much time is required to do it, and keep you on track. Setting goals will help you to measure your success so you can see how far you have come! Your ORBERA® support team can even help you to establish your goals and a strategy that is both healthy and achievable. With the right plan and goals, you can achieve your dreams and become an entirely new you!
Take a moment and ask yourself: what is the change that you would like to see in yourself?
STEP 1: What Are Your Weight Loss Goals?
First, you should determine what your weight loss goals are.
Your goals should reflect the healthy and confident future that you want for yourself. You can have a variety of different goals. They could include a:
Certain measurement or clothing size
Physical challenge or event (i.e. obstacle course, marathon, etc.)
Feeling of comfortability
Once you have an idea of the results you would like to achieve, record them. You can even discuss these goals with your ORBERA® support team for positive, uplifting insight or suggestions. With the right technique, determination and support, your support team might even motivate you to achieve even higher goals!
STEP 2: How Are You Going to Achieve Them?
Now that you have identified your goals, it is important to determine how you are going to achieve them. Whether that means following a specific meal plan, going for a daily walk with your dog or establishing a new exercise regime, planning how you are going to achieve your goals will help you to stay on track. Keeping track of your daily activities and eating habits will help you to track your success as you move toward reaching your goals.
Your team of experienced coaches can also help you create a plan to achieve your goals. Your team will help you to discover which healthy and nutritious foods you enjoy, and the best way to prepare them. Meal planning and preparation can help you to avoid unhealthy food that might throw you off your pathway to long-term weight loss.

Incorporating an exercise routine into your plan is imperative to reaching your weight loss goals and maintaining them long-term. Your team can help you to determine your current fitness level, and gradually help you improve. Challenging yourself to become stronger and have a higher level of endurance is a great way to stay on track. An exercise plan will schedule regular days for exercise, outline certain exercises, include stretching, and track fitness goals.
