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.
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.
