If you want something more, or different for yourself, this is definitely a program for change.
What is 12 Weeks to Weight Loss and Wellness?
12 Weeks facilitates learning and self-awareness. It is a great foundation of information, tools and strategies to launch a personal wellness initiative. The journey starts here.
How it Works
Simply put, whatever you have going on in your busy, potentially stress-filled life impacts your weight, your health and your state of being. Where many weight-loss programs put all the focus on your body, as in "eat less and move more," 12 Weeks comes from a holistic mind, body and spiritual approach that makes it truly a wellness program. When you attend to your whole life, versus just your weight, you witness results in all aspects of your life, making it easier to lose weight. Some people say it seems like they’re not even trying.
There will be assignments each week, based on the topics discussed. Each session starts with a debrief of the previous week. The greatest benefit often occurs between sessions as you explore and apply the learning. The beauty of this program is that you get out of it whatever you put into it and the focus is up to you. You are encouraged to work where you’re ready. Small steps are encouraged and celebrated.
