Welcome Weight Loss Nation!

I can’t believe that we are almost at the 12 week mark! That means that we are almost at the end of our first 90 day challenge. It’s just the first step – a “kick start” if you will! The program isn’t over after 90 days – in fact, it’s just beginning.


Next Friday, July 15th we will announce the winner for the first challenge. That winner will win a 7 day cruise from our sponsor, Carnival Cruise. So it is an exciting time and we can’t wait to share the results with you.


If you are thinking that it is time to take control of your life and begin your journey to living a long term healthy lifestyle, the Weight Loss Nation program may be just the thing to help get you on track.


Maybe you have some emotional issues that you are using food to deal with. I used to eat mindlessly and live to eat, rather than eating to live. Food has to be the fuel for my body, and power me to a long-term healthy lifestyle.


After next Friday, the winner will be revealed. But that doesn’t end the journey. Weight Loss Nation continues and the Facebook group will continue to be active to provide support because truly this was the first leg of the journey, not the last leg.


Another 90-day challenge will begin October 1st. We will continue to have a podcast twice a week, to help continue to support you and provide information to assist us in our healthy lifestyle.


If you’ve failed at weight loss before – I hate even say failed. Maybe you just haven’t found out what will work for you. This is a comprehensive program and provides online support, text messages, access to our mentors and trainers. We will help get you there, so join us.


Each Tuesday, we will have an expert on the show to help keep you going.


Each Friday, we will have FREEBIE Friday, where I give you a healthy meal recipe to try, so you aren’t stuck in chicken mode! Here’s a meal to give you a jump start this week!
