How can I become slim in 15 days ?
I want to lose weight but how?
Is it possible to lose 25 kgs in 6 months ?
Tell me some medicine to lose weight fast.
And a lot more similar questions we receive every day. Generally, all the people who want ‘Quick’ results seem desperate to lose weight. I completely understand how it feels to be overweight. But we need to understand that a miracle won’t happen and we get rid of all the flab and achieve our best figure. We need to be patient and set realistic targets !
Generally I keep a lot of patience while answering to the queries to my readers but once I got irritated with a lady because she asked me the first question that you read above – “How can I become slim in 15 days ?“. I asked her why 15 days ? Did she gain all the weight in 15 days ? She replied saying that she gained 10 kgs in 2 months and it would be okay if she can lose weight in 2 months. I told her that it is practically not possible to gain so much in such a short stint unless and until she has some medical issues. I also gained 10 kgs of weight in 10 months due to a medical ailment but 2 months is a very short time to gain so much !
When I told her to be patient , she was pissed 🙁 . I understand the urgency to lose weight but let’s be practical, we can’t lose weight without determination and putting sincere efforts. The flab just won’t vanish by a magic wand of some fairy !
How To Set Weight Loss Goals
Let’s see how to set weight loss goals so that we are able to achieve them –
Find out a good reason to lose weight
If you are trying to lose weight only because you wish to wear butt shorts or a skimpy dress, forget it ! This reason is just not good enough. Ask yourself if you just want to be slim or health and fitness is what you desire. A girl asked me to give her a tablet which could cut her fat. How can you eat any medicine without knowing its long term side effects just to shed weight ?
Where would you start your weight loss journey ?
Find out where to start ! You can start by giving up sugar, processed foods, oily food and restaurant food. Take baby steps and write everything you would do to achieve your goal.
Set a realistic goal
If you wish to lose 10 kgs in 4 months, it is an ambitious target. If you are determined to do so, pat your back :). In my view, 6-8 months are okay to lose 10 kgs weight.
Split your end goal into short term goals
Take the above example. If you wish to achieve 10 kgs weight loss in 4 months, your first month target should be 10/4 = 2.5 kgs. But since you would lose faster in the beginning and slower towards the end, target 3-4 kgs in the first month and 1 kg per week.
Having short term goals not only give your determination but help in measuring your success too!
How are you going to start ?
When you find the answer to this question, you are ready to get set and go.
What are the problems which you can face ?

Create a workout schedule for 15 days
Unless you create a workout plan, you are never going to be serious during workouts.
What will you do if you do not achieve your goal ?
Decide a punishment for yourself if you miss your short term goal. Trust me, it helps !
How will you reward yourself if you achieve your goal ?
Yeeeeeeeee :), you can relish your favorite pastry or chocolate if you hit your target 🙂 ! Celebrating your success and rewarding yourself will help you keep going.
