Goals

FLL Goal # 1

Maintain or achieve healthy weight. Is your weight where it should be? In that case your goal is to maintain it. If you are overweight then your goal should be to lose weight. A common strategy is to lose a percentage of your current weight. If, for example, you weight 200 lbs and are overweight, your goal may be to lose a percentage such as 7%, or 14 lbs.

FLL Goal # 2

Do 2 and 1/2 hours of brisk physical activity each week.

For example, take a walk or ride a bike for 30 minutes, five days a week.

These goals are safe and can be reached but you will work towards them gradually.

Reaching your goals will help you:

  1. Feel Better. More energy and less aches and pains.
  2. Up Your Game. Perform better on and off of the field
  3. Enjoy Life More. Spend your money on a dream vacation, not on doctor's bills.
  4. Live Longer. See your children and grandchildren grow up... and use your pension!
