*In Need of a Weight-Loss Jump-Start?*
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The countdown to full-up summer gear is just about here. I know some of you are considering taking drastic measures to peel off the pounds. Others are feeling a lack of motivation because weight loss can be a slow and dreary process.

Rapid weight loss can be highly motivating...but it can be dangerous and likely to result in disappointment if you don't know how to be smart about it.

However, anyone can use the methods here to jump-start their weight loss if they require "instant gratification" for motivation... Click here for the Trainer-Approved Rapid Weight Loss Plan.

*Chart Your Own Course with Diet and Exercise...it's all about Customization*
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is so much information out there about the best way to achieve optimal health, to reach your ideal weight, and to retain or re-gain youthful energy and vitality. Sometimes it is hard to know what and who to believe: sometimes so hard that, when faced with these confusing and sometimes conflicting options, you simply throw up your hands and do nothing.

The reason there are so many approaches to diet, exercise, and healthy living is because WE as human beings introduce so many variables into the mix that it should make your head spin. We all have a different genetic makeup, for starters. Consider the fact that we live in different environments and we have different stressors in our lives. We all have a different story as to how we came to our present state. We have different live events and different ways of coping with them, all of which affect how we are doing today. The reason there are so many types of diets, so many types of workout programs, and so many conflicting pieces of advice surrounding organic foods, protein requirements, and supplement advice is that these things generally work for SOMEBODY, but it all doesn't work for EVERYBODY...

*Pick Your Treats Wisely*
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is room in any eating plan for a "splurge," but if you have too many "splurges" you will sabotage your results.

I recommend deciding which types of treats you donít care very much about, and which you really love. For example, maybe you really look forward to your ice cream fix, but could care less about potato chips. If this is the case (think of your own example) be sure to never "waste" calories on the junk foods you donít really care aboutóbut allow yourself a treat when you have a craving for the ones you really love.

Many people will eat some junk food just because it's there, justifying it by thinking, "I deserve a treat once in awhile." That is true, but wouldn't you rather save your treat for something you really love, rather than something you could care less about?

*Paraphrased Quotes from my Most Successful Clients*
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I find that if I sit down and plan out my week ahead of time, I am more likely to stick with my exercise plan."

"I was tempted to call you and cancel our session, but I realized that keeping my appointment is probably the only way I will force myself to exercise."

"I used to drink literally pots of coffee every day. I switched over to green tea and I hardly miss the coffee. Luckily I take green tea black. Now I consume so much less cream and sugar, and I've lost a lot of weight."

"I've been trying other types of exercise at the gym such as aerobics classes and resistance training routines, but the only thing I've seen results with so far has been your program."

"I can't remember the last time I had a backache. I used to get them ALL the time."

"With my family obligations, there is no way I could get to the gym for every workout, even though I prefer working out at the gym. Home workouts are essential for me, otherwise there is no way I would get my exercise in."
