Let’s just talk about it. It is January again and I bet about 90% of those who set New Years Resolutions probably included something to do with weight loss and health. I am so excited to share information that will actually help you reach these goals!
If you really think about it, how much time and money did it take you to get to the place you are at right now with your health. How much money was really spent on junk food over the years? Investing in yourself and your health NOW and over the next few months to get the results you want is so worth every penny!
Weight loss has some important components that must be addressed to make your body feel safe to keep the weight off YOUR body.
- There is the nutritional component with your omega oils, your antioxidants, your vitamins and minerals – all which can come from food and supplements as needed.
- There is the exercise component – yes, it is a good thing to move your body.
- There is the mental/emotional component – which is truly where much of the problem begins and where we get stuck.
- Then there is the physical body. The big questions is how can we support it in doing something it already knows how to, but is so distracted by just trying to help you survive that it can’t even begin to focus on losing the weight because of that.
If we meet the body’s needs and demands…it totally takes over and knows HOW to get your body to the place that is most healthy for you.
