Don’t Be A Dumb-Dumb!


PeteThomasPhotoSeven Teammates You Need to Lose Weight in 2012

Why do some people quit their diets and gain all the weight back they have lost? There are a variety of reasons, but one of the most important is the most overlooked. It’s so simple that people miss it in their search for some complicated hormonal or genetic answer.

So what are YOU lacking in their quest for better health? Is it a magic pill or special workout or something to sprinkle on their food?

Actually, it’s none of the above. What YOU lack is a…


That’s right, a team. I know what you may be thinking and it’s true … a team by itself will not cause you to lose weight. But the lack of a TEAM may be the “make or break” element that keeps you on the program or causes you to get discouraged and quit.

A lot of articles have been written on The Biggest Loser weight loss approach. A lot of so-called professionals have commented on the contestants’ dieting habits and our workout regimens. But most people overlook the MOST potent factor that the show brings to its contestants, its “secret sauce.” That factor is a strong, supportive, 24-hour-a-day TEAM environment.

There is no way I can overstate this – you canNOT lose weight alone. This lifestyle change you are contemplating … this is not like deciding whether or not a new outfit of clothes looks good on you. It’s a little more important than that. And yet, most of us would be more likely to seek help or guidance about a new outfit than we would weight loss. But when it comes to weight loss, we want to do it alone.

Weight loss is one of those things that people think, “Oh, I can do this on my own.” Dumb, dumb, dumb. Weight loss is not something you’re going to be successful at on your own. Now you may be asking, “Why do I need a team?” The two main reasons: accountability and encouragement. You will need them BOTH in large quantities if you want to be successful.

So I’m here to help you out. I will share with you the seven teammates you WILL need this year to help you reach your weight loss goals. Stay with me every week this month, and I’ll tell you who the teammates are and what YOU need to achieve the weight loss YOU want.
