Something Really Cool to Know about Weight Loss

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Researchers at Stanford University discovered that practicing weight maintenance may be the key for weight loss.

Two groups of women were studied.  In the first group they started weight loss efforts right away.  In the second they spent 8 weeks practicing maintaining their weight (daily weighing, portion size awareness, reasonable snacks…).  After the 8 weeks they began weight loss efforts.  One year later both groups had lost about the same amount of weight but those who practiced weight maintenance before weight loss were more likely to maintain their losses than those who didn’t practice.

Practice, practice, practice.  Just like mother said.

Indian summer:

Does anyone really know the definition?  I don’t.  But I know it when I see it & I see it out my window right now.  I hope everyone can find a reason (or excuse) to get out & enjoy this week!

Thanksgiving:

Enjoy connecting with others if that’s what you’ll be doing.  Because even when there is pie, connecting with people we care about is healthy.
