NEW YEAR NEW ME


** Rinse & repeat for 5,10,20 years. **



I want you to recount how many times that you have made a goal to diet & lose weight.

What were the results?

Were they lasting weight loss, health, and happiness?


No?

Don't feel bad... only 5% of people lose weight and keep it off successful.


Do something different this year. Don't diet!
