The most certain way to succeed …
By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed is
always to try just one more time.
~ Thomas A. Edison
The most certain way to succeed is to keep going!
We have an incredible bunch of highly accomplished individuals in this group ~ playing this game and we all know it takes time to change, learn and grow.
This game is no different ~ we are involved in a journey to improve our life through enhanced fitness and overall wellness. Involving our family and friends in this journey serves to support our community wellness. As a culture we have gotten away from true health care and self care by utilizing all the magnificent options we have available to us over the years that make our lives easy ~ automobiles, escalators, elevators, fast-food, giant grocery stores with thousands of pre-packaged foods, restaurants on every corner. We have become reliant on having everything be easy and fast in our efforts to work more, commute and try to keep it all together.
It is important to remember ~ some things take time!
- Rome wasn’t built in a day, as they say 🙂
- Don’t expect yourself to be prefect, that’s a recipe for disaster.
- Keep track of your progress with your Daily Scoresheet
- Take advantage of your team for support ~ don’t isolate yourself!
- Utilize the recipe resources to find new ways to enjoy old favorites
- Employ your SMART GOAL system to keep track of your health vision
This is a TEAM BASED WELLNESS GAME because we believe that elevating social-wellness and weight loss from a solitary endeavor into a community activity with friendly competition creates just the right environment for fun, progress and sustainable results. Improving one’s health can be challenging for many reasons, we believe it’s easier when you’re in it with friends & family, making a community wide commitment. We all need the support of our family and friends to sustain our healthy life goals.

Whenever I have a day or days off, I feel that I have gained weight. I make myself get on the scale upon my return from travelling and expect the worst. So far, it has never as b ad as I expected. I think this is because, while I exercise less and endulge more when I travel, it still isn’t the mindless way I used to live. This helps me for the long haul, which is a big relief. I (like lots of other folks) have a history of giving up after a “bad spell” but now even those times aren’t so bad and getting back to the game isn’t as hard!
yea Pamela!! that is good news and definitely good information for all of us. Thank you for sharing
