Set a goal. Without goals it’s easy to drift along intending to change, but never actually getting around to doing it. Try to set a goal for where you want to be next summer.
Set yourself a goal for the end of September. Then set monthly goals to pace yourself and ensure you reach the big goal.
Finally, set weekly goals that are not based on weight or measurements, but are about what you are going to do that week to ensure you are on track to meet the monthly goal.
