2). Finding a Fitness Partner & Telling Them Your Goals.
Setting goals with a partner or friend. Often times having a workout partner or a dieting partner will make things better for everyone.

On one side have your “goals” and the other have “aspirations.” For example: Goal #1 Lose 10 pounds this month. Aspiration #1 Lose 10 pounds so I can buy a new pair of jeans, and so on. Make sure they are in detail and try to make them very personable. Soon you will develop these mental changes that will change your life forever.
