I've been to the health conferences and learned all about what DOESN'T work. I've read the data, talked to hundreds of people, and tried some of the weight-loss plans myself - with little or simply temporary results.
It's clear that information and a plan are NOT enough. To lose excess weight and to establish and maintain healthy living habits we need more. What is that thing called *more?*
The missing element for most people who attempt to lose weight is a clear value system for health, wellness, and future health. Without those values you and I will fail every time. Once you set these values - and you must REALLY believe in them - then you can connect to those values and begin changing to reach those goals of yours.
The secret to weight loss is this: you must do it from the INSIDE out.
Once you and I set up a clear set of values we can start aligning our habits with those values. The research is supporting this approach.
OK - now the question is how does one go about setting those values? I think most of us need a guide. I'm pleased to connect you to one. Her name is Renee Stephens. She has a book and she has a whole BUNCH of podcasts to help you. She's been helping people for a long time AND she mastered weight loss herself over 20 years ago. Check it out! I've listened to some of her podcasts - and think you will benefit.
