Final Project Post
Goal commitment involves the process in which an individual becomes set to achieve a pacific goal. Setting goals for weight-loss may seem easy, or individualized, but it may be somewhat social. Not everybody struggles with maintaining proper weight. Many different things attract and motivate us to perform certain behaviors; such as maintaining wellness.
Setting goals might be the incentive to actually perform that behavior; such as losing weight to become healthier. Weight-loss clientele WILL develop defense mechanisms towards taking the proper action step towards achieving their goals. This is why we have health care professionals alike; nutritionists, personal trainers, counselors, and dietitians. But how do you motivate someone who is extremely over weight to change habit and exercise like an athlete? So we can either follow through and achieve our goal by working out and eating healthy. Or we can abandon that goal for easier solutions such as gastric bypass surgery. Dangerous, but most of our serious obesity cases result to gastric bypass as a proper treatment. In this image, we have an example of the human digestive tract. Portion 2 is removed to cause increased satisfaction with a smaller amount of food. About 70% of their weight, stored in Fat, will be burned off as fuel.
According to the readings, the closer we get to achieve a goal the harder you will work for it. Some people won’t set a goal because of their low probability to actually achieve that goal. This may explain how obesity is impacting our citizens, and why we may have to turn to gastric bypass. Can we agree that losing weight and being healthily influenced is a valuable incentive? This may not be the easiest goal to achieve, it takes much effort. People who are prone to obesity are at a greater risk of developing this sense of hopelessness.
Obviously being overweight can be uncomfortable for an individual. Working out can be painful resulting in avoiding behavior. Some start to notice that proper exercise speeds the weight loss process, which can result in an approached behavior. This is extremely positive for the weight loss individual. The ability to see the road ahead and judge upon the end result is half the battle.
Becoming active in the obesity dilemma is a goal of mine. I made a Web-Quest to display simple sources of exercise. Most people wouldn’t notice that cleaning your car can be a fun and useful exercise.
Many people don't value a clean car, but it is essential towards looking sharp. According to Harvard Health Publications a 125lb person will burn 180 calories per hour, a 155lb person will burn 224 calories per hour, and a 185lb person could burn up to 266 calories per hour while maintaining their vehicle. Isn't that crazy?
When losing weight, it’s important to have goal specificity. How many meals will I eat today? What time will I eat them? How can I make that meal as healthy as possible? Where, when, and what will I do to achieve my sixty minutes of physical activity each day.
The result of weight-loss clientele depends solely on an individual’s ability to commit. Commitment implies the willingness to become persistent, and find the determination needed to expend time and effort to pursue the diet and exercise program. The more they commit to the goal, the more success or “goal achievement” is brought upon that particular individual.
