      <Abstract>Introduction: Normally in a weight management program, the patient has specific and   individually set goals about how much weight should be lost.  It is also very well-known that an unrealistic goal setting can be one of the major reasons   for failure of treatment in such patients. Materials and methods: We selected menopausal obese Indian women attending a weight management clinic for the first time. They were studied to know whether goals  set by them were realistic or not by administering a questionnaire. Their weight loss expectations were compared with the initial weight loss goals recommended by reputed scientific agencies such as the World Health Organization.  Results: our findings suggest that the defined expected weight loss in menopausal obese Indian women is not significantly higher than the recommended initial weight loss. Similar studies must be carried out in larger population and in different populations such as pre- menopausal women, men, and pediatric obese patients.</Abstract>
