How to Set a Realistic Goal Weight

Now that spring is here and I am trying on my summer shorts again, I am trying to plan out what I need to do to drop my winter flubber. That leads me to ask myself, how much do I actually need to lose, how much can I lose?
Many people set unrealistic goals for themselves when embarking on a weight loss journey, and many of them quit half way through because they aren't getting the results they want.
So how can we set a goal for ourselves that challenges us, but is still completely obtainable?
Keri Glassman, R.D., Women's Health's weight-loss expert, suggests jotting down three numbers:
1. Your highest-ever weight
2. Your lowest-ever weight
3. The number in between, where the scale lands when you're eating healthily
"Where does your body naturally fall when you're just an average, healthy person—even if it was 20 years ago?" says Glassman. Now, subtract five pounds from that third number.
This is a healthy—and totally achievable—goal weight.

Great reminder @nokcha, Thanks!
This is really good info for everyone planning their summer bodies hahaha
Giving up because I'm not seeing the results I want is definitely an issue for me. This is a cool little formula!
Also checking your BMI to make sure you arent aiming out of a healthy range!

7 Weird Weight Loss Tips That Don't Involve Exercising
If you're on a weight loss journey, but you hate exercising, test out these weight loss tips that don't require one minute of exercise. Tie a knot. If you're feeling daring, try Valerie Orsoni’s “Le Petit Secret." It's a method used by multiple French women who wear a ribbon around their waist when they go out to eat. It's supposed to keep you conscious of how much you're eating because the ribbon will start to feel tighter as the evening progresses. Eating for the Insta. Rather than logging down every morsel in a food journal/diary, take a picture of it. That way you can visualize how much food you're truly consuming. Eat off small blue plates. Putting your food onto small plates will give off the appearance that you have more food on your plate than you actually do. Also, the color blue functions as an appetite suppressant, so there's a reason why a lot of restaurants don't use them. Eat with your opposite hand. This will cause you to concentrate more on picking up your food and unconsciously slow down your food intake. Light a vanilla-scented candle after dinner. Studies show that the aroma of a vanilla candle will dampen dessert cravings. Hang a mirror opposite your seat at the table. You're less likely to shove that extra roll in your mouth when you're staring yourself in the eye during a meal. A mirror will help remind you of why you're trying to lose weight in the first place. Sit at the end of the table. Usually all the shared food such as appetizers, chips and salsa, bread, etc. are placed in the middle of the table for easy access to everyone. The farther away you sit, the least likely you will be tempted to go for seconds.
