Weight Loss made easy
Once in a while we run across a blog that parallels your beliefs. I have great respect for the thoughts of Tim Terrio of TERRIO Physical Therapy and Fitness. Although his approach to weight loss is more extensive than what I would ever do, his basic philosophy is simply that you need to make the decision to start.
I like how he relates it to getting on a rollercoaster ride. I have watched dozens of people ride the weight-loss roller coaster. They gain the weight, eat to much, feel quilty, start a diet, get hungry, binge, feel bad, start a diet, and the the roller coaster continues. So what does it take to lose weight? The following is short and to the point:
I wrote the “Healthy Family Evolution” and created the program for all of you who have been riding the rollercoaster of weight loss for far too long. Don’t get me wrong – I love a good rollercoaster, the more twists, turns, loops and drops the better. The excitement of standing in line as the anticipation builds. Finally, it’s time to lock yourself in and enjoy the ride, which ends all too soon. But, the rollercoaster of losing weight and getting healthy is a different ride. First of all there is no excitement or anticipation to even get on the ride. Very insidiously the weight increases over time until it finally reaches a point where it gets our, or others, attention. Then suddenly we are thrown onto the ride. We are bombarded with solutions, concoctions, potions and programs. We are told that it is fast and easy to lose weight so we jump on ride after ride. We lose and we gain. Yet we keep ending up at the same place. Frustration grows as we are directed by those trying to help pointing to the next great ride. The seemingly endless chase continues. Frustration gives way to “what’s wrong with me?” if this is so fast and easy then why am I not able to do it? As we get older the game takes on new importance as we are faced with several life threatening chronic diseases. The ultimate thrill ride either you conquer this foe and keep it at bay or it could cost you dearly and yet the cycle of failed attempts continues. So, once and for all lets acknowledge that this journey is NOT easy, it is NOT simple, there are no magic formulas, potions or concoctions. There is no silver bullet. The good news is that through research we do have substantial knowledge in how to make a sensible, sustainable change but it comes at a price. That price is taking the steps to change your behavior and to replace old habits with new ones.

With thousands of diet programs and weight-loss products on the market, there should be something out on the market that is simple, straight-foward, easy to do, clinically tested and researched, proven to work, and doesn’t require you to be hitting the gym 7 days a week to lose weight.
First I made a decision I was going to lose weight. Then I choose to use the Shaklee 180 weight loss system. I didn’t have to lose a lot of weight, but wanted to get rid of some fat and regain energy. I’m one who likes to keep things simple. I wanted something that I didn’t have to think about and not complicate it with potions, lotions, or other weird concoctions. Yes, it did require me to make a choice. Next, it was a conscious decision to do what I said I was going to do. Finally, it was the will power to change my eating habits, my thinking, and my outlook on where I was going.
Yes, it did take close to a year to lose 25 pounds, but I had been carrying it around for over 20 years. This was one of the best decisions of my life.
If you are willing to make a change in your life that can affect you the rest of your life, then I would encourage you to take a look at the Shaklee 180 weight-loss program. It is simple, supplies all your required daily recommended vitamins and minerals, and even tastes good.
