About this Group:

If you agree with the following, or are working on getting to a place like this, please join! -----
A Diet doesn't work unless you lose the weight permanently. Losing weight quickly is not important. Keeping it off is the most important thing. Our health is more important than our weight. Losing weight is a benefit of making the lifestyle change, not the only reason to make it.

We love ourselves NOW. We trust ourselves NOW. We understand that we are valuable and good people, regardless of our weight. We know that we are MORE than a number on a scale.

We believe that losing weight is just the beginning. Keeping it off is the real battle.

We believe that nutrition is important, not just for weight loss, but for our overall well-being.

We believe that exercise is important, not just for weight loss, but for our health, both mental and physical.

We believe that the best way to lose weight permanently is to educate ourselves about nutrition and fitness, to learn what we are putting into our bodies by tracking our calories and measuring our portions. We know there is no magic pill or plan.

Above all, we understand that in order to keep this weight off, we will have to follow a healthy lifestyle for LIFE.
