How To Eat an Elephant

How do you eat an elephant?  The answer is…one bite at a time!!


Many times when thinking about the need to lose weight, we look at the Elephant.  That large, big eared mammal that would take a bulldozer to knock over!  How can we ever do it on our own?

What is it…20, 50, 100 or more pounds that you need to lose?  Does that seem like a huge obstacle and one that can’t be beat?

Making small, attainable, ‘bite-sized’ goals makes digesting that big elephant easier and therefore doesn’t seem quite so overwhelming and much more attainable.

The key to success in reaching the ultimate goal is taking baby steps or making bite-sized goals and rewarding yourself along the way. One by one each goal is attained and before you know it you have conquered the BIG ONE!

Set your own goals and rewards depending on what your big elephant is however here is an example to get you on your way… Big Elephant: to lose 115 pounds Current Weight: 250 lbs  Goal Weight: 135 lbs  Bite-Sized Goals: 10% of Weight
