I love to get emails from my readers telling me how they’ve been successful in reaching their goals. So, today I wanted to share with you Chris’ story, and how he changed his lifestyle, and lost 100 pounds as a result~ Melanie
Depending on how much credence you give the BMI scale, I am a little bit overweight. I’m not buff, I’m not ripped, or anything even remotely like it.

If you have struggled with your weight for years, sometimes taking a look at those around you who maintain a healthy weight, can be one of the most helpful things you can do.
I’m not saying that so-called “skinny” people are always healthier than overweight people. In many cases, and studies prove this, an overweight person who takes regular exercise, is much healthier than a skinny, inactive person.
However, my point is that sometimes when you’ve been dieting for so long, you start to forget what it is to eat “normally.”
So, taking a closer look at how others do things, can give you a much-needed reality check.
