• “I accept that I am responsible for making the choice to change.” How true those words are! I spent a month at H3 last year and learned a great deal. I lost 28 pounds and came back feeling great with a clear vision of what I needed to do. Then I let work and taking care of family members blurr my vision. I stopped eating healthy and put it all back on. Until we commit to taking ownership of our own change…
    nothing will change! We can get help along the way but ultimately the change part is up to US!

  • Thanks for sharing, Pam! Hold on to that wonderful memory of losing the weight and feeling so good. That will only help give you the confidence and motivation to re-commit to your health. Series of steps, series of choices. They are not always forward steps, but the key is figuring out how to get more going forward than you have going backward! Best of luck!

  • Jessica thanks for the inspiration, it comes at a much needed time and I am going to print it out and put it up. If you don’t mind, I’m also going to print it out for my students. We have worked on goal setting and making changes, and I think it’d be great to have in the classroom.
    Thank you Thank you

  • I think that’s great Kathy! Thanks for sharing – that’s why we right these blogs – to continue to inspire and spread motivation outside our walls of H3. Best of luck to you and your students!

What’s Your Perspective?

With the premiere of A&E’s Heavy last night, it brought to my mind the thought of the many different perspectives people have regarding weight.  Is weight typically a result of unresolved emotional issues or vice versa?  Do some people have a weight problem simply because they “just like to eat” or is there more to it than that?  What is an individual’s ideal weight?  What is the answer?  Why can’t some people just do it?

After decades of fad diets, bogus exercise regimens, high-risk diet pills and other no-result answers to our quest for the easy solution for weight loss and weight management, we’re finally drawing the conclusion that there is no easy road.  And there is not only one road.  Rather, it’s a series of choices and small steps, not a leap.  It requires a slow burning glow of motivation that needs rekindling, rather than one burst of flame that quickly fades away.  It requires confidence, commitment, forgiveness and support.

You may be asking, “Where do I start?”  Some may begin simply by starting an exercise routine or adding a walk at the beginning or end of their day.  Increasing energy levels then may lead the individual to start making healthier food choices.  Or consider a different avenue… some may begin with a healthy eating plan, which can lead to weight loss, building confidence to try a new exercise routine.  Others may work with a counselor to look at the root of their eating behaviors and define a path that conquers their triggers to make unhealthy choices.  No matter where the journey will take you, it all really begins when you say I accept.

I accept the fact that I can control my weight, it does not control me.

I accept that health is a personal journey.

I accept that my perception of my weight and health is the one that matters most.

I accept that I am responsible for making the choice to change.

Are you ready to make a change?  Just say I accept, and we are here to help you find the journey that will lead you to success.  Have you already made the commitment and found your road to success?  Share your story with us!
