Goal Setting

Where do you want to be?

We understand that your ultimate goal might not be about weight loss. Maybe it’s eating better, running around with your kids, being comfortable in your skin — or whatever makes you feel healthy and happy. You define success on your own terms.

That’s true when it comes to weight loss too. How much weight you want to lose is totally up to you. You might have an ultimate number in mind, or you might not. But the best way to get where you want to be is by setting small goals. Start with 5 pounds. Or set a goal just for the next month. Just remember, your goal has to be realistic and achievable for your life right now.

You can change your goal any time you like. To enter (or change) your weight goal, click on the person icon at the top right of your homepage, then on Settings in the pulldown menu, and on Weight in the Settings tab.

Good to know: The Weight Watchers program is designed to result in a safe rate of weight loss of ½ to 2 pounds per week (but don’t be surprised if you see more in the first few weeks).

When you reach your goal, whether it’s a short-term 5 pound goal or a long-term final goal, celebrate! You earned it! If you want to maintain your weight goal, you can easily adjust your SmartPoints™ budget: go back to Settings and switch to Maintain Weight. Or keep challenging yourself. Whichever you choose, we’ll always have your back.
