NEW Why Weight Lifestyle - Launched!

After late nights and long hours, the first Why Weight Lifestyle program is about to be launched!  And it’s NOT “just a facelift” to the Why Weight Program that I have taught for the past 13 years (the last 5 years at Searcy Athletic Club)!  It is an entirely new menu of sessions that takes you from text to table - I’m about to burst at the seams with excitement!!  

Why Weight Lifestyle Menu:
1)    Why Weight ME (for individuals and small groups)
2)    Why Weight FAMILY (for families of Why Weight ME Graduates)
3)    Why Weight CHALLENGE (for larger groups and corporations)
4)    Eat Yourself Beautiful – Emotional Eating and Eating Disorders

Why Weight ME & Why Weight Family will be launched in January!

Why Weight ME consists of 4 one-hour sessions:

Session #1
The Nutrition/Fitness Interview helps us to identify those obstacles that are keeping you from your goals. We define Protein, Carbohydrates and Fats, exploring how the body uses them for the BEST impact in achieving weight goals.  All the hoops of Hormone Imbalance & Risk of Disease will leave you in awe!

Session #2
We will “take a ride ” together and learn to make healthy choices as we GO! We will cover healthy restaurant choices and leave you with great ideas for your own “fast food”! In this session we will learn the difference between keepers and losers in each food type as well as the importance of water and fiber!

Session #3
You will want your shopping shoes as we tour the isles of a local grocery store, learning to read product labels and clueing in on healthy, money saving shopping tips! We will also explore healthy substitutions for preparing food and delicious recipes!

Session #4
“You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes and you can steer yourself any direction you choose”, as Dr. Seuss would say, but this meeting is more than a send-off. You will leave equipped with a personalized “Nutrition Prescription” and exercise guidelines complete with built-in rewards and check points.

Why Weight FAMILY – Why Weight ME graduates have access to the Nutrition Nanny! It’s hard to refrain from saying more, but I’m leaving it as a surprise for now.  Let’s just say that Nutrition Nanny has come to town and she will take your family from couch potatoes to baked sweet potatoes!

Why Weight CHALLENGE and Eat Yourself Beautiful are on the drawing board - right along with my own website!

Nutrition and Fitness is more than a career for me, it is a deep rooted passion that is stemmed from my own experiences and the strength I gained through our Savior.  I too, just like most of you, am surrounded by a family history of diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancers – all of which are highly influenced by our choice of lifestyle.  My passion and Purpose is to “pass it forward.”  To help those who have allowed the emotional eating take control and to help others understand in a simple way how to fuel their body to be at their peak best!  I invite you to join me on this journey!   I’m only taking 8 clients in January, so call or write me today!

Why I Do What I Do???

It's not about the latest diet fads, it's not about comparison of self to the magazine cover, and it's not about being consumed so much by the physique.  It's about our ONE blessing God gave us to be stewards of... our ONE engine in life... our one body that houses our soul.  Eating healthy & working out to me is glorifying Him in so many ways.  It is being a good steward and being physically & mentally fit to meet the needs of others when He sends them my way.  I can NOT help others when I myself am sick.  I can NOT love others when I do not love myself as God loves me.  I can NOT be fruitful for His Kingdom if I myself is in desperate need of repair.
A healthy lifestyle is not about "diets"... it's not about spending 2 hours in the gym either!  It's about asking Him to guide you before your feet hit the floor in the morning.  It's about making healthier choices ONE bite at a time.  It's about staying fit so you can always be ahead of Satan who loves to chase you!  It's about a CHOICE of the mind every day.  Satan loves to fill your head with lies about yourself!  Why do you fall for it?!  God did NOT create you for such nonsense!  He created you in the most perfect & loving form!  He loved you and has molded you in so many ways... isn't it time to listen to Him instead of Satan's lies?  
Start your day off with healthy choices...ONE bite at a time and ONE step at a time!  YOU CAN DO IT!!   I believe in you and so does He.
