Set yourself up for Success in 2010!

It’s always been hard for me personally to make New Year’s Resolutions, when my Januarys are consumed with helping others achieve their’s! But here it is February, and in light of my long term goal to write regularly for a health publication or write a book, today I take baby steps by promising my readers a bimonthly blog update. At least twice a month, I will write!

In fitting with everyone’s agenda at this time of year, the first topic will be weight loss, divided up into a four part series as follows: Why they give up, Why they don’t lose, Training vs. Trying, and Goal-setting 101. We will follow the typical January gym-goer to see why resolutions are so short lived. Then we’ll take a look at the reasons his/her efforts aren’t paying off as planned, discuss a more successful common sense approach, and learn how to create a goal that is realistic for the kind of loss that is maintainable, according to the level of sacrifice one is willing to make. I’ll also be trying to sneak in some info on supplements in the next month to try to simplify an issue that is very confusing for many.

Let me let you in on a little secret. The truth is, losing weight – the kind that will stay off, is one of the hardest things you will ever do in your entire life. It requires an adjustment of priorities, and major financial and time sacrifice. The commercials make it look so easy. Yet we overlook the “results not typical” fine print and don’t ever follow up with their future difficulties in maintaining their success. Americans are spending 40 billion dollars a year on diet programs and products, and we are fatter than ever. 95% of all dieters gain back all the weight they lost and more. 95%! Wake-up call! How do we avoid being a statistic? What can we do that is so different from the ordinary approach that we can actually be a part of that elite 5% who experience success?

Stay tuned! Up next is “Why They Give Up.” Consider subscribing to this blog by using Google friend connect (find on the side bar at premierphysique.blogspot.com), or by adding the following link to your RSS reader http://premierphysique.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
