Dr A sent us a "Welcome to the TSFL 12-Week Health Transformation!"

From Dr Andersen:
Welcome to the 12-Week Health Transformation!
Welcome to the beginning of a life-changing journey. I am excited to help you leave behind the world of poor health for one of vibrant, long-lasting health.

These next 12 weeks are going to create the momentum, give you the skills, and offer you the support to set you up to enjoy the precious gift of health for many years to come. Many programs start out with extreme workouts or unrealistic dieting, promising quick weight loss in an unrealistic amount of time.They disregard long term success and do not focus on actually helping you create long term health The result: the diets fail, and any weight lost or health benefits are short lived and over 85 % gain their weight

The Take Shape For Life approach is designed to help you make a sustainable changes in all areas of your health. Exercise and diet will be important parts of your journey, but they treat systems of poor health rather than the cause. The first step in living a healthier life is changing the way you think about yourself and about health. Once you have made a mental change, making and maintaining the physical change will be much easier, especially with the support of a Health Coach motivating you to discover your optimal health.

In our 12-week Health Transformation will help you make measurable and significant improvement in 5 major areas of your Health.  These areas are:
            Healthy Eating
            Healthy Weight
            Healthy Habits of Motion
            Healthy Sleep
            And Healthy Mind/Well-being
Over the next 12 weeks we will sharing information daily on how to improve in all of these key areas. And, during these next weeks, we"re going to create the momentum, give you the skills, and offer you the support to set you up to enjoy the precious gift of health for many years to come."
 On Monday, the first leg of your email challenge will begin.

I will send you seven emails a week for 12 weeks that will guide you through the process of creating health in your life. These emails will arrive early in the morning so that you can use them to start your day. If you can check your email once a day, you can make this program work for you. 
Just like my books, these emails will contain lessons, exercises, and challenges.

Every email is based on my personal experience as a medical doctor and on the content of my first two books, Dr. A's Habits of Health and Discover Your Optimal Health. Thousands of people just like you have used my lessons to lose weight, fight disease, and live happier, more fulfilling lives. I am confident that you can succeed just like they did, especially if you take full advantage of the 12-Week Health Transformation contest that Take Shape For Life is sponsoring with the help of Medifast.

While there are many prizes up for grabs, the greatest reward of all is the chance to live a healthier life. Be sure to read the full details of the contest, complete the checklist, and connect with your Health Coach. This will make you eligible for the contest.

To get started, all you need is a notebook, a pen, and a computer. Picking up a copy of Discover Your Optimal Health will add more depth to the daily lessons, but it's not mandatory. Just check your email, read the lessons, and do the exercises.

Six Days till New Years: What will your story be like?

The Parks tell their Story: 
“Before we started our journey to health we were living the typical American life. We ate very unhealthy. Our source of entertainment was centered around the TV. We loved each other but our unhealthy habits were hurting us more then we realized. 

Each year we gained more and more weight and added new unhealthy habits. To make it even more painful, we were passing these same unhealthy habits onto our children. We've started implementing the healthy habits into our family. Now we enjoy being active with our kids. Being at healthy weights means we can do more with them and actually enjoy it! 

Grace lost 100 pounds and Jon lost 40 pounds! We are eating healthy as a family. Many people are amazed at how our kids enjoy healthy food! We are improving our endurance daily through exercise, while teaching our kids how fun and rewarding being active is.

As our bodies get healthier, our minds are getting healthier. As our minds are getting healthier, our finances are getting healthier. They all work together and are changing the dynamic of our family! We enjoy long trips with our kids. We are training them up in health and teaching them long term healthy habits! We don't have that fear of them having to go through the same health struggles we went through. Thanks to this program our lives have and are still changing for the better!

Bethany's Story!

7 Days till New Year's Day ... Bethany’s Story: 

“I have been overweight since I was 5 years old, closing in on 200 pounds by age 13. My senior year of high school (just by being active and playing lots of basketball) I managed to get down to about 165 pounds and didn't even realized it was happening until I got there. 

After graduating high school the weight started coming back on pound by pound. When I got married I weighted almost 200 despite trying EVERYTHING and EVERY DIET to lose weight before my big day. After getting married and having 2 beautiful children, I lost hope of ever getting to a healthy weight. Then, my sister's friend told me about this Program and I thank God everyday that she called me. 

I started this program weighing in at 237 pounds.  On July 28, 2012 I reached my goal of 146 pounds - a 91 pound loss!!! Now it's been a over a year and I'm still maintaining my weight loss and THRIVING!! I have taught my kids about how important health is.  I now have the energy to play with them and I LOVE IT!!!!! This summer I have ran three 5k mud-obsticle coarse races - I have NEVER enjoyed exercising until NOW!!!!! This is what THRIVING in LIFE feels like and it's AMAZING!!!! I will NEVER give up the HEALTH that this program has given me!!!!!

Ben and Tiffany started their transformation at Christmas ...

Ben and Tiffany were trying to out exercise their eating habits. After trying many methods of weight loss with no success they had given up the hope of reaching a life of optimal health.  

Willing to try just one more time, they not only reached a healthy weight but found out they were missing out on SO many of the things they used to love.  

"We could never have imagined that after losing 65 lbs each we did not just "lose weight" but are more confident, happy, friendly, less tired and stressed and fully enjoy activities like wakeboarding, traveling, and keeping up with our kids! 

Oh and we don't hide when people are taking pictures anymore!!"

Margaret's Story has a Familiar Ring to it!

Does this sound familiar???

Margaret:
“I started dieting after gaining 72 pounds with my first child. For the next 30 years I think I tried every diet out there. Losing weight was never the problem, keeping it off was. 

However, something drastic happened when I turned 50.  No matter what I did I couldn't lose weight.  This went on for an entire year.  I was so frustrated and angry and about to give up when I heard about this program through a doctor who had lost over 100 pounds himself. 

When I got started on it I couldn't believe how easy this program was to do and with the help of my health coach 35 pounds just melted off my body. The best part, I finally learned the healthy habits necessary to maintain my weight!"

Nine Days till New Year's ...

It's Nine Days till New Year's Day ...
In a twinkling of an eye it will be 2014. Many people will make and break resolutions AGAIN ... Let's resolve to be different!  Let's resolve to be passionate about our health so we can be All In!!!

I think you will enjoy Jeanne's Story:

"At 210+ pounds, I had spent 15-20 years trying every weight loss plan and diet; reading self improvement books; doing twelve step work .... I couldn’t remember a time when seeing photographs of myself or walking by a mirror didn’t cause me to cringe in shame

I just couldn’t believe that this size 22 woman was me. But nothing I tried to change about my appearance worked for any length of time. Even exercising 5 days a week changed nothing. In total desperation, I had gone so far as to get quotes for lap band surgery. Fortunately (and I only say that now), it was not financially feasible.

I started this amazing program at the first of last year and nothing has been the same since! The simplicity, straight-forwardness, affordability, as well as the consistent weight loss and high energy level I felt, made the days fly by. By fall, I had reached my goal!!!! Actually, I surpassed it because I thought I was being unrealistic to strive for a size 14, and in November I was a size 6-8! I have more energy than I can ever remember having, even when I was much younger, and I never want to go back to life before."

Call Me today for consultation and to see if you are a candidate for the program!

Favorite Quotes:
Polly, we went dancing ... I used to think my feet hurt because I needed new shoes - not so!  I just needed to take off 16 pounds!!!
I've been a bystander in my own life for so long ... just on the sidelines ... (tears) ... I've taken off 83 pounds so far.  Oh Goodness!  I feel so much more alive!!! 
My knees aren't screaming at me to sit down!  I was actually in the kitchen cooking up Thanksgiving dinner AND still had energy to wash the pots and pans!
I didn't think it was possible or would ever happen ... I had failed so many times! 
I just listened to cardiologist, Dr Mark Nelson, share his passion for the Take Shape program. When I heard him speak last summer, he actually got choked up telling us about the day when he spent more time taking patient's off prescriptions rather than writing new ones.  "Having Take Shape for Life as a tool in my medical practice, has been a tremendous benefit!  For the first time in my career, I know I can actually help people heal the cause of their illnesses!"  

So, it's not a Trick or Treat or a Hipster Holiday ... it's just a special day to celebrate and share Hope, Health, and Happiness with everyone we know and love! 
I can't wait to hear from you!!  Polly.

Passion Test Instructions!



I'm excited to add a new offering for you!

As a newly certified Passion Test Facilitator, I'm offering The Passion Test at a reduced cost of $97 (normally $297) through the end of January, 2014. This set of instructions will wet your appetite for more! Let me know when you're ready to take the next step to transform your life!

Passions are your driving force, the propellers of your boat. Aligning actions with passion, speeds you on your way with ease & joy! Polly.
***********

The Passion Test:  Making Your List in Preparation for Session #1

Making your list is the first step in this process of getting clear about your passions.
  • Make a list of what is important to you, what you are passionate about … what lights your fire!
  •  At the top of the page, write “My life is ideal, and I am …”
  • Number each item in the list
  • Complete the sentence using an ‘-ing’ verb to bring everything to NOW (e.g. 1. Enjoying good health.   2.  Having fun with everything. 3.  Being in a close intimate relationship with my ideal partner. 4.  Living in a warm climate.  5. Inspiring all humanity to live their greatest potential …etc.)
  • Go ‘all out’ in making your list…the sky is the limit…nothing is too ‘big’ or too ‘small’ to be included
  • Give each passion its own number in the list (Don’t judge or prioritize them)
  • Include all hopes, dreams and wishes…any that may still remain from childhood or youth…that may be in front of any “but’s” or “when’s” or “can’t because…” in your list-making process
  • Include all things that are important to you, that you love,even though they may not seem to be in your experience right now
  • Come from the premise that all resources are in place now for living your passions fully
  • Include items on your list from categories such as:  health, family, relationships, career, hobbies, travel, home, finances, spirituality  (plus  any other categories)
  • Let your list be as long as it is, with a minimum of 10 items
  • Have fun, don't "over think it!" Enjoy!
Please email, scan or fax me a copy of your list 24 hours prior to Session #1.  Thank you!
Session #1 (approximately  1-1.5hr) Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Reclaiming your Health, Finding Your Passions ...

Congratulations! Reclaiming you health, learning and adopting the principles of Dr A's Habits of Health, caring for yourself, and nourishing yourself in every way ... this is truly what it's all about!! Congratulations on gaining insight, reducing the carbs, saturated fats, and inflammation. Pat yourself on the back for reaching out to me and following through.

As an extension of what I offer as a Health Coach, I'd like you to consider doing the Passion Test with me. I've just returned from the most incredible workshop on how to help people find their passions, increase the fulfillment, happiness and wealth (on all levels!) in their lives. It's a natural extension of what I've been doing for a life time as a Midwife and for the past five years as a TSFL Health Coach. I get to continue to "Help People OUT!"

The conference I attended took me through the certification process to become a "Passion Test" facilitator. Take a look at The Passion Test. You can take the test for free online ... but it's so much more effective and life changing when we do it together! I would love to sit down face to face and walk you through it. Since I am new at it, I'm offering it for free to the first 10 people who raise their hands and shout, "I want it!" Accepting this gift is a game changer!!!  Polly.

Just a little M&M ...

At a conference this past week, little bags of trail mix were provided along with pastries, coffee and tea. Since I'm in maintenance and we were engaged in intense activities, the trail mix was a reasonable snack choice ... well, except for the M&Ms.  

The M&Ms didn't support my passionate desire to be a feisty 61 year old with vitality, health, and beauty. I had to do a little internal debate and it came down to this: Yes OR No? ... Yes or No Polly?  I could certainly have them if I wanted them but they didn't serve me nor did they serve my deepest desires so I picked them out and tossed them.

I'm not sharing this story to brag. I'm sharing it to connect on a deeper level with you. I became a coach to build relationships and be of service.  I care deeply about your progress and success.  We are not alone on this journey to better health ... we are working in strength and harmony towards sustainable well-being, stamina, and happiness. The Sees candies, pies, cakes, and holiday drinks may give us momentary pleasure but, they don't contribute to our health or get us where we want to go!  If you long for freedom, set your course and walk that way.  Reach out and offer your hand to others. Notice the pitfalls, traps, and thieves. Take the opportunity to Stop, Challenge, and Choose! We don't have to make New Years Resolutions, we simply have to decide to live in favor of our true passions!

Mapping Your Progress

Knowing where you want to go, mapping out your route, learning how to use your compass, and getting a guide are are very helpful tools for any trip you choose to take ... on the road to better health, there are several tools to help you track your progress:
I take the comprehensive Health Quiz twice a year and short quizes every couple of months ... when you are new, it's helpful to take it every month or so.

I'll include an example ... the graph illustrates how Greg progressed on his weigh loss journey ... charting his progress and taking photos regularly really helped!

What's Your Passion?
One of my passions (right after helping people transform by losing excess weight and gaining health) is talking about nutrition and well-being.  This week, I had the privilege of giving a two talks for the Park Rose High School "Fix-It Fair." My goal is to give at least one presentation per month on healthy eating. So, next time your group or church is looking for a speaker, keep me in mind ... it's fun, educational and entertaining! You and I know that many people are struggling with diabetes, high blood pressure, sore knees and excess weight ... I'd love to be a resource for you and the folks you care about!

Getting ready for the next holiday ... start by getting in gear for better health!
