    Finding Health and Money Savings with Weight Loss

    There are several savings in store for your new healthier lifestyle.
    • Reduced health risks and health costs
    o Less risk of many weight related conditions and diseases
    o Fewer medical costs associated with those conditions
    o More active lifestyle may mean fewer medical concerns:

    A walk a day keeps the doctor away
    …and does your emoticon good!

    • Personal cost savings:
    o Less dining out-you may prefer knowing what you are eating and how it is prepared
    o Cooking with raw ingredients is often less expensive than processed foods.
    o Smaller portions cost less
    o Save on the cost of gas…walk or bike rather than drive when possible

    • Improved Quality of Life – PRICELESS

My plan is to "Burn the Bird" this week....no NOT in the oven...but with my fitness plan and in the gym. I want to burn as many calories as possible BEFORE Thanksgiving! I want to work on getting buff before getting stuffed!

    Wishing you a wonderful day.....
    and a better and brighter tomorrow!!!!

    HAPPY HOLIDAY WEEK!!!

    *~*~*The Winner's Creed*~*~*

    If you think you are beaten, you are;
    If you think you dare not, you don't;
    If you'd like to win, but think you can't
    It's almost certain, you won't.
    If you think you'll lose, you're lost;
    Since out in our world we find
    success begins with a person's will,
    It's all in your state of mind.
    Life's battles don't always go
    to the stronger or faster hand;
    But sooner or later
    the person who wins
    is the one who thinks....."I CAN".

    Here’s an exciting thought:

    You are in the process of planning your personal success story.
    Chapter 1 is the final chapter of being overweight.
    You don’t have to go through this again if you self-commit to reach your goal of weight loss.
    The conclusion of your success story is full realization of your new, lifelong healthy lifestyle and a healthy weight for life.
    ...thus, the end of this journey is the beginning of the complete new you! You, the amazing woman transformed in mind, spirit and body.
    As you move toward success, notice your mindful thinking, how activity is becoming enjoyable and part of every day, and your motivation to stick with this weight loss plan to be healthier. Notice the rewards such as a sense of well-being, increased energy and self-confidence. And by now, if you should have a bad day and feel tempted to go back to old habits, you are strong and committed and can regain your self control.
    Be proud of how far you have come and keep up your good work… as you write your success story. SUCCESS

    There's about 50 days until 2012!!! Let's make our 2011 weight journey a success!!!
