Stay Focused

We have had several people weigh in this past week for the Month 1 weigh in. Congrats to all of you who are participating both formally and informally. If you have lost a pound or 2- Congrats! It's just been 4 weeks and you are off to a great start and a healthy weight loss. Stay with it! This second month is one of the most important months of the competition. This is where we lose people due to inability to keep their inner drive and mental energy focused on their health and weight loss program. For those of you who have lost 5-10 pounds or more...stay with it and keep your mental energy up. Sometimes when we start out of the gate strong we often lose steam. The key for this month is to stay focused. If you hit a plateau, it will pass....just keep at it.

After all, this isn't just about weight loss-it's about your total health, empowering yourself to live the life you've always wanted. You can start living the life you were meant to live when you decide too. Remember the strongest tool to assist you in your weight loss and optimal health is your Mind. You will lose weight and change your life when you decide to. All weight loss consists of is less calories in and more calories out.

Need a boost? Join us in our 3 Week Health Challenge. Start now and make it your 2 Week Health Challenge. You CAN do this- and when you do, not only will it inspire others; but, it will have a ripple effect on your life.
