An Exciting New Review!!

Want to lose weight? Have you been trying to off and on, unsuccessfully? I had the opportunity to review a book about such a topic. As you all know, I have been on a weight loss journey and because last year wasn't as successful as I had hoped it would be, I jumped at the chance to read this book.

In The One Day Way, by Chantel Hobbs, she talks of her own journey through weight loss and combines her story with the practical advice to those of us still striving for health and fitness. The concept is simple really, taking things one day at a time. Celebrating the "bite size" victories as they come and forgetting those past failures that hold us back. She brings the power of positive thinking and faith in the weight loss arena. Most of us tend to let our past slip-ups dictate our current journey. Mrs. Hobbs takes you through how to measure success, laying a new foundation, building a new you, and the road to completion. All the way from changing your thinking, to your food choices and even has exercises to help you along the way. Another aspect of this book that I thoroughly enjoy is the personal stories of other people who have used The One Day Way and had great success! How inspiring is it to see others making a life change? Here are just a few quotes from the book to wet your appetite, so to speak. ~Smile~

"Progress is not made in huge steps. It is achieved in bite-size successes." pg. 7

"When you define success at the achievement of long-range goals, you're bound to feel like a failure sooner or later." pg. 35

"The One-Day Way focuses your efforts and your celebrations on one day: today." pg. 36

Anyone on a diet needs to read this book!
