Know Your Numbers

medical-563427_640
Planning your pathway to wellness is just like planning any other journey.  You have to know your starting point, your destination, and define any checkpoints along the way.  Too many times, people begin their journey before first determining their starting point.
Knowing where you are now brings clarity to where you want to go.  Without that critical factor, it’s far too easy to lose direction and get discouraged.  Fortunately, it takes very little effort to get the numbers you need to decide the best way to progress on your journey.

Some numbers you can determine on your own.  Others may require a trip to a gym or doctor’s office, but it’s well worth the visit.

4 Guiding Principles For Your Life

We call it VITALITY.  It is the state of being strong and active.  It is life with energy.  It’s an easy-to-follow plan to help you achieve your best possible weight for a better, more fulfilling life.  Why do you need these principles and why such an emphasis on LOSING WEIGHT?  In short, when you control your weight, you control the key factors of overall health.  You don’t have to lose that much to see incredible benefits.  Lowering body weight – even as little as 10% – has been shown to have phenomenal health benefits that can be more effective than medications.  It can help reverse or prevent diabetes and reduce your risk of heart disease.


 

Losing as little as 10% of your body weight can reduce insulin levels, reduce blood pressure, and decrease your risk of diabetes.


 

The 4 guiding principles that lead to successful weight loss are:
1) Eat Smart
2) Get Active
3) Perform at Your Peak
4) Stay Accountable
Get Started.  Our plan is to help guide you step by step through the process and even allow you to create your own plan for success.  Plain and simple.

Wellness Is Waiting

Excess fat hits more than just your waistband – life expectancy, medical expenses, productivity, mobility, and self-confidence are all affected.  Luckily, the path to better health is straightforward and simple: eat smart, get active, perform at your peak, and stay accountable.

 

HEALTH AND FITNESS mean so much more than fitting into your skinny jeans or beating your personal running time.  True wellness means a life unfettered by weight and illness.  It means enjoying your golden years.  It means more meaningful years with your family.  It means being active in your grandchildren’s lives – and even your great-grandchildren’s lives.  Wellness is so much more than a number on a scale.  It’s living a life full of vitality and loving it.

Not long after starting your journey, it’s easy to look around and feel like you haven’t made much progress, but that’s not true.

Every step you take brings you closer to your goals, but remember that it may take a while.  It’s about progress, not perfection.  Don’t focus on the final outcome.  Instead, pay attention to the progress you are making.  Don’t judge yourself by numbers, but by behaviors.  Every day that you make an effort toward living a better life is a day worth celebrating.  Because you’re one day closer to reaching your goals.
