We had 18 people in attendance last night. We ended at 8:30, but didn't leave until 9:20 as we stayed answering lots of questions. I don't know if any of the 18 are members here. If they are, it would be great to hear from them!

Did anyone from the team attend this session? Just wondering if there was feedback? It would be nice to see a follow-up for any activities we post here to see if people are attending and a mini-review.

Thanks for the clarification, Susan. Its good to know there are still events that wont catch one by surprise! I think in this day and age you don't see much for free anymore; and you are right...it is okay to post events with available detail.

I did the Mental Toughness a few years ago. I signed up through the website for the daily email. That was all I wanted...and it was free.

I like his tough, no nonsense approach. There were a couple other people on one of my Spark teams that did it too and they dropped out after the first couple emails. Mr Siebold is very blunt and to the point. I really liked that approach, it was what I wanted to hear, but if you don't have a thick skin it might not work for you.

**LINDA**

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

The seminar really is free, as are the book and 21-day program downloads. There is no catch - anyone who attends will learn something. My husband owns a coaching company, so for those who want accountability (which is what most of us actually need to stick with a program), there is coaching available.

As I said in my post - if people don't want to attend the seminar - that's totally fine. They can still download the book for free and participate in the free 21-day online program. I even provided the links in advance.

It's unfortunate that everyone looks for the catch rather than ways in which they can help themselves, but I totally get it. After all, I'm the same way.

You may want to read the article in which my husband and I were featured on Friday. It's not about us - it's about Steve Siebold's new book (the free one I mentioned). It definitely gives a better idea of what Mental Toughness Training for Dieters is all about.

My understanding of this group was that it included sharing events. Not sure how this is different than a Meetup group since it's about helping people reach their goals. And, the way I see it, the more support you have on a weight loss journey, the better. Just my opinion (and personal experience), of course.

All the best!
Susan

I agree, Chuck -- The reason for this team is to motivate one another to wellness and develop "real time" friends who have common interest, not to promote a business.

Susan I hope this seminar it not in invitation to buy into a diet program. I have learned if the term used says "FREE" we should ask how much does I cost. I have found this Website "SparkPeople" has all the information I need to make healthy nutrition and fitness choices. It is truly free.
I have been to free seminars in the past, and always get confronted with high-pressure sales techniques or hear a lot of hype., The information in the seminar is something I can generally retrieve on my own.

Hello, SparkPortland teammates!

I wanted to make you aware that my husband and I are hosting a FREE seminar tomorrow evening (Tuesday, January 7), from 7-8:30pm at Clear Channel (home of Oldies 106.7) on Mental Toughness Training for Weight Loss. This is what was missing from every "diet" program we ever tried - it addresses the underlying issues around weight gain and weight loss and helps reframe your thinking to allow for success. You'll learn a few things and come away with some tips you can implement immediately. And, courtesy of Oldies 106.7, one lucky attendee will also win a Kah-Nee-Tah getaway!

You can get more details by visiting http://www.mttwl010714.eventbrite.com. And, you can find out more about us and our story by either visiting our video blog at http://www.mentaltoughnessweightlossblog.c
om, or by reading the article that appeared in Friday's Vancouver Sun at http://www.vancouversun.com/health/people+
told+swallow+truth/9347502/story.html

If you can't make the seminar (which I highly recommend attending), you can still download a free copy of Steve Siebold's latest book: Fat Loser! Mental Toughness Training for Dieters at http://www.fatloser.com/burke/ or go through his 21-day Fat Loser online program (formerly $495!) at http://fatlosers.com/burke.php


Hope you can come!
Susan (Slimmingsuz)
