Healthy Weight Loss Victory from one of our students

This is a great victory from one of our Transitions Lifestyle System students:
"I lost 11 lbs and 2 inches around my waist in 30 days!"

How did he do it? It's healthy weight loss--no starvation, no deprivation!
What is he doing different? He was more consistent with his exercise (strength, cardio, and stretching), he is being better about watching his portions, and he is supporting his weight loss with supplements.

He has done weight watchers, calorie counting, and other diets before, but this is a NOT A DIET! Not all calories are the same, and it is a comprehensive science-based system. It is a lifestyle change that is sustainable and he's having fun while he's learning with our coaching and group support.

*** Disclaimer: every individual's weight loss depends on a number of factors. this is not a typical or average number, simply the victory of one individual.

Every small victory

Every small victory counts to get your healthier lifestyle. Here's a quote from of our Transitions weight loss students: "Yes, I made it to the gym yesterday afternoon – woohoo! Feeling good today. Got to remember how much better I feel when I am active."

What is your victory today?

Maybe you didn't have time for going to the gym today, but what can you do to be more active?
* on your bathroom or water break, take an extra walk around the office, or go up and down some stairs for 2 minutes.
* on your break, add 10 slow belly breaths to de-stress, or do a minute of stretching. you will have more energy and you'll want to do more "active" activities.
* park your car at the back of the parking lot so you do an extra minute (or more) of walking.
* WALK to a local business instead of driving to do your errand.
* walk your dog with a different route and pick up the pace.
* clean your home (yes there will be squats and bending over--be careful to exhale and pull in your abs!)
* other ideas?
