See you lighter

Didi you notice? I changed the name of my blog, but not my purpose for writing it.

Sooner or Light or See You Lighter?

Sooner or Light or See You Lighter?

 

The old name, Sooner or Lighter, just didn’t quite fit the content of the blog.  See You Lighter is much clearer because that’s why I write this blog. If you want to weigh less, in other words get lighter, I share scientifically-sound, user (loser) friendly ways to make it happen.

I have more than 25 years of experience not only maintaining my own weight loss, but more importantly helping thousands of men and women in Maine lose weight while learning the valuable skills necessary to maintain their losses.

My experience has taught me that everybody’s weight loss journey is different and unique to each individual. Despite each unique journey, everybody shares common challenges. We live in an obesigenic environment.

Those of us blessed with an abundance of survival genes (now identified as obesity genes) find it difficult to stop those genes from expressing themselves. In other words our urge to eat whenever food is available is thrown into high gear because we’re constantly surrounded by highly palatable food.

The biggest challenges for most people are, (1) believing that reaching a weight loss goal is possible, or (2) believing that maintaining the goal weight is possible. 

I know that both reaching goal and maintaining goal are possible for anybody. That’s not to say anybody can have the “dream body” they see in magazines and on screen. Indeed, many of those dream bodies aren’t even real. They’re the work of talented photoshop and retouch artists. I’m saying that losing weight, becoming stronger and more fit is possible for anybody.

I write blogs to share my experience and insight, as well as experiences and insights I’ve gained by helping other people. I enjoy sharing science-based, effective ways to get leaner. I put all the pieces together in my blog. Successful weight control is a matter of changing how you eat, move, and think and the changes need not be restrictive or painful.

Eating better means eating good-tasting food that supports your weight-related goals. It is not giving up any single food or food group. It's monitoring what you eat so that your food choices add up to an overall healthy diet.

I think See You Lighter succinctly sums up my blog. If you want to be lighter, I can help. Trust me, I can “see you lighter” before you can even believe it’s possible. I can see you lighter and I can help you see yourself lighter.

It’s the same blog with a new name. I see you lighter and I will help you see yourself lighter.

See you lighter
