If there is one thing we want to successfully communicate to people – whether they are just considering our program or are in the process of losing weight with us – it is that message above. Most people who come to us have clearly concluded this …

“Diets” don’t work!

Most of those considering healthy, effective and lasting weight loss have arrived at this realization …It’s time for a LIFESTYLE change.

Think about that word. What does LIFESTYLE even mean to YOU? Let’s dig into that. In searching, here are a few definitions we found.

“The particular way that a person or group lives and the values and ideas supported by that person or group.” - Cambridge English Dictionary

“The lifestyle of a particular person or group of people is the living conditions, behavior, and habits that are typical of them or are chosen by them.” - Collins English Dictionary

“A way of living of individuals, families (households), and societies, which they manifest in coping with their physical, psychological, social, and economic environments on a day-to-day basis. Lifestyle is expressed in both work and leisure behavior patterns and (on an individual basis) in activities, attitudes, interests, opinions, values and allocation of income…” - Business

Obviously, there are many, many dictionary resources. And, frankly, you may have your own personal definition. We just chose a few to share. What’s interesting is to pick out the key words trickled through these definitions. Pay close attention to words like …

  • Values
  • Behavior
  • Habits
  • Chosen
  • Manifest
  • Patterns
  • Attitudes
  • Allocation

The truth is this: If you will pause and think about these words and combine them together it all starts making perfect sense. When you focus on your VALUES and bear in mind that you really can CHOOSE your ATTITUDE and how you ALLOCATE your time, energy and resources those choices direct BEHAVIOR. And, when sensible choices are consistently made you will MANIFEST healthy PATTERNS … called HABITS which will shape YOUR way of doing things (your STYLE) and will result in you feeling well, looking well and most importantly LIVING well!

If you’re a client, remain focused on this type of thinking and doing. Stay the course and realize that one important aspect of lifestyle shift: TIME. Let it work for you!
