What causes you to struggle with your weight?
It is rare to have someone tell you that you are overweight due to MANY different choices you make on a moment-to-moment basis. It is your environment, lifestyle, personal conditioning, genetics, past life challenges & issues, and habits that keep you overweight. It’s NOT just diet or exercise, but all of factors in your life that influence your choices. Set your eyes on: Your Life–Everything Is Interconnected!
As you learn about your choices and the patterns they form, make small changes, and learn new skills, then day-by-day, overtime, you form new habits. These new patterns gradually bring to you NEW RESULTS (being thinner, healthier, and happier). This happens as you learn to practice problem solving when you relapse to old ways of doing things. Over time, you learn what works and what doesn’t work for you. You cultivate within you the awareness of your answers to the challenges you face! You will discover What You Plant Is What You Get!

Feast on a Banquet of Practical Wisdom…..
My focus in Balanced Weight Management is Health-At-Any-Size. This includes eating well (with pleasure and awareness), living actively (celebrating the joy of movement), and feeling good about yourself (respecting and honoring yourself with your choices) and others. I encourage you to explore those areas of the Web site that you’re interested in. Every section discusses an aspect of whole-person health: health of body, mind, and spirit. Check out the Dieting versus the Non-Dieting Approach section for new perspectives on your journey towards greater health and well-being. See below for some ideas of where to start.
I suggest you first Set Your Intention for Your Life:
- Plant the Garden of Your Life With Seeds of Well-Being
- A Daily Reminder
- If You Would Grow
- While applying the inner wisdom of Ecosystem Weight Management
