I can't believe it has been 11 days since I "blogged". Where has the time gone. In fact, I can't believe January is in the can and we are already into the month of February. Our new marketing plan is well underway and we are beginning to see increased interest in our metabolic program.
Personally, I've been logging my food regularly, getting my cardio in, and strength training with my wife and our wellness coordinator, Cory. I've lost about 10 pounds over the past 5-6 weeks and am getting close to my goal weight. I had my first public seminar on metabolism and the impact it has on weight management last Thursday night. As you recall, the weather got really bad and no one actually showed up. However, a couple of people who had signed up called in the next day and went ahead and made appointments to be tested.
Mary Ellis and I are working on our first book. The comment we hear most from our patients is that they just don't know how to eat healthy. In this, our first literary endeavor, we are attempting to provide 20 meals each for breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with 50 healthy, tasty snacks, and 3-4 meals for the five most popular breakfast, lunch and dinner restuarants. We will have a chapter on the case for nutritional supplements, and another for general hints on eating healthy.
Our first health professional dinner will be Thursday, February 28th, at Chateau Elan. I'm going to be discussing our program, and how knowing your metabolism will help you be successful with weight loss and subsequent weight management.
Look for big changes on the website coming soon. And check out the pork tenderloin with herb sauce recipe that will post next week....absolutely delicious!
Think about this! For those of us trying to lose weight, our initial motivation is one of vanity. We want to look better, and fit in our clothes better. In order to keep weight off, our motivation has to evolve; we have to begin to understand that keeping weight off is essential for us to avoid the complications of being overweight. In other words, our motivation becomes rooted in our good health and wellbeing; reducing our risks for heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, joint disease, and many cancers. I believe this evolution of our thought process regarding weight loss will go a long way towards helping us keep weight off!
