Losing weight the healthy way

It's December and no one wants to think about their health right now, they have too much to do. They'll think about it in January, with everyone else. What better time to start registration for the next Gwinnett's Losing It!

What is Gwinnett's Losing It? 
GLI is a 12-week healthy, weight-loss program teaching people how to lose weight the healthy way, with no pills, shakes or gimmicks. A group of 20 people, all with the same goal - to lose weight, to improve their health, to change their lives.

How does it work? 
It's not magic. It's a lot of hard work. And trust. And common sense. According to the CDC, more than 69% of our population is overweight or obese. This affects more than our looks. This affects our health, our medical insurance rates, our performance on our jobs, our sickness and illness rate, our ability to care for our families. It seems as more conveniences are made - packaged foods, fad diets and crazy workouts - it is NOT addressing the true issue of being overweight and obese.

Our emotional health IS related to our physical health and vice versa. If the packaged foods, fad diets and crazy workouts are not working, then it's time to try something new. Something that addresses the emotional side of weight loss. Why can't you lose weight? Why can't you keep it off? Are you just destined to be overweight or obese? We have 12 weeks to show you how. Through weekly teleconference calls, monthly group meetings, monthly individual meetings, weekly weigh-in's and more, you learn how to take back control of your health. Many of the people in Gwinnett's Losing It! started because their doctor recommended they lose weight. They changed their lives through our program. Not just because of what they weighed, but because they got off medications, they started eating better, they started exercising. They started living better and doing what they were truly meant to do. Not just exist, but live a good and healthy life.

There is no better feeling that good health. 

This is our 6th season of Gwinnett's Losing It! and I am excited to start in January with 20 new people. I am excited to share, educate and watch as these people take the tools they need to change their lives. Will one of them be you?
