Take Good Care of Yourself!

Good Morning Take Shapers!
We will get through Thanks Giving and all the holiday parties, bazaars, family gatherings, and potentially high stress / rich food encounters! ... How are you doing??? I love getting your photos and hearing your news ... Check-in, call, text, and e-mail me frequently, especially through the upcoming holidays. 

Take good care of yourself:
Everything I read reminds me that I can't control the outcome or guarantee the results ...  the only things I have any control over are the goals I've set and the baby-steps I take daily. Here's what successful clients tell me they do to help keep themselves on track:
  • I stay focused on the process and let Dr Andersen help me.
  • Put one of Dr A's books in a place where I can read a page or two every day.  
  • Give myself the gift of grace by making healthy choices with my food, activities and self-talk!  
  • Choose to hang out with positive friends and family members ... this is a hard one!  
  • Take of moment to think about my personal vision and goals each day - once before bed and once upon arising.  
  • Keep picturing what it feels like to be my preferred slim and strong self. 
If you could do one thing to promote good health today, what would it be?  How can you incorporate Dr A's instructions to Stop, Challenge, and Choose? 
For more Holiday Survival Tips, go to my blog and put "Holiday" in the little "Search" box!
Dr Andersen just sent us Four ways to give health for the holidays ... We can do this! As I've said before, sharing the program helpsyou stay accountable and focused. Read more in Dr A's Habits of Health, chapter 18, on "Building Your Support System: the Keystone to Optimal Health."  Keep in mind that we are after long-term, sustainable health and well-being.  

Favorite Quotes:
Thank you for helping get fully engaged ... when I started in May, I thought this was going to be another diet with "diet food" ... what a surprise! I love having your support and learning from Dr Andersen!!  And, I'm down 46 pounds!!!!
I blew my doctor out of the water!  My weight is down, my blood pressure is normal, and my A1C is down to normal for the first time since being diagnosed with diabetes six years ago.  My doctor told me I can go off my meds as long as I continued to take such good care of myself.  She said she rarely ever takes people off medications and she is thrilled!
Everyone was amazed when I showed up at Thanks Giving ... I have five more referrals for you and we are really celebrating the opportunity to be coaching each other ... I think I'm finally ready to talk about becoming a coach ... the timing is so right!!

Have a great week!
