One Pound at a Time ($87 value)

Is one of your New Year’s Resolutions to lose a few pounds? This is the time of year we all want to literally tighten our belts. We want to move away from elastic waist pants (!) and towards being more healthy.

But we also know that ‘diets’ don’t really work, and that according to research the only thing that really seems to work is ‘lifestyle change’.

Yes, but who’s teaching ‘life style change’?

Well, I’ve created a weight loss class called “One Pound at a Time” that does just that.

Now, I’m not a dieting specialist :) I’m not a nutritionist, or a doctor, or a nurse, or an expert, or a dietitian, or a rah-rah weight lifter, or a personal trainer, or a fitness guru.

I’m a regular person just like you.

But over the last five years, I’ve collected some pretty great healthy eating ideas.  And I know that in a class environment, we can both work at chipping away at those pounds, one pound at a time!

For today’s gift, I’m going to give away one free pass to this class “One Pound at a Time: Weight Loss Together” (value = $87 each). This is a 3-month class, where you receive emails and videos from me every day or two for 3 full months. There’s also a blog space for you to post comments and where we can support each other.

Wouldn’t you love to begin your new year with the right kind of support to help you be successful?

You have three chances to enter to win:

    1. For one chance to win, post a comment below and tell me why you’d like to lose weight NOW. Why now?

1 Malia

OOH is it too late to enter? I want to do this again. WE JUST laid out our next three month business plan and as part of it, we added personal fitness. It is as important to our business as cash flow. When I feel bad, I perform poorly…and when I feel great, business is so much easier!

2 Shelley (Head Tomato)

Malia, not too late! And if you share on FB you can get another vote 🙂

Why do I want to lose weight? Because I have HAD it! I had an incident happen about 13 years ago now, and I have added on the pounds since then. I was able to lose 20, but I think that is because those were gained due to some medicine issue an ongoing bout of upper respiratory crap. However, I used to be very physically active and healthy. Now my blood pressure is up, my headaches are worse, and my cholesterol is up. I have done a couple of things to get this under control, but I still need guidance and accountability. I faced the incident of 13 years ago and learned why I still hold the weight, but I am ready to face taking it off. I signed up for a work fitness challege which involved getting weighed and measured, and I am soooooo over it. I am just ready to do this thing.

Hi Shelley,

I am turning 64 in a few days and my degree is in Home Economics and yet you come up with the most brilliant ideas. Martha Stewart used to be my hero but now you are!

I have fallen into a routine that I have not been exercising and have not been eating right and drinking too much wine. I need to get some structure back and I think you always have such good ideas… that your class sound like the ticket!

72 Donna

I’d like to get some structure back after the holiday goodie blitz, and go healthily into the new year!

I like the idea of fellowship in a weight loss program. Since I have 3 small children getting out of the house to meetings or socializing is not always an option. Please consider me for your free pass, it would be greatly appreciated. It would give me a real “lift”.
