WellBeing: More Than Weight
Did you know 95% of people who lose weight on “diets” gain that weight back within 5 years? Some even gaining more back than they lost? Those are scary numbers, worse in fact than the data gathered on smoking cessation. Conclusion? Diets don’t work. So why do so many still travel this path to nowhere? Well, because frankly the “better way” takes more time, more effort, and more mindfulness. Three things Americans are often unwilling to give. We’re talking about true long term habit change…And it’s hard.
As you read this, the leadership of your district is trying to find ways to encourage you to be healthier, happier, and more productive. In the past, many routes have lead to the standard weight loss challenge. A big kickoff meeting where a desirable prize is announced followed by 6 weeks of crash diets and weigh ins until finally a winner is crowned. But what happened after the challenge? Did the participants maintain their results? Did they learn anything? There’s no question that the accountability and short term reward of a weight loss challenge drives actions, the real question is…for how long?
At Applied Fitness Solutions, we’ve distilled all the successful elements of a weight loss challenge and combined them with the principles of long term habit change. The result is a robust, engaging exploration that aims to take participants beyond a simple outcome on a scale and further into the realization of their healthiest/happiest selves. This isn’t a weight loss challenge, it’s a wellbeing challenge made to stick. And it’s coming to Saline Schools this fall!
