The One Day Way

Update - Wow, being it is Sunday I didn't check my email until this evening. I am happy to announce that the winner of The One Day Way is my very own sister, Lisa, who lives in North Dakota! Congratulations Lisa - I will put the book in the mail tomorrow!

Many times the fresh new start that January brings is to our plans to lose weight. Waterbrook Press sent me a book to review and I would like to take the opportunity to share it with you.

I have struggled with weight for many years and I do not believe there is a solution or weight loss program that will work magic. To me the key to success is a lifestyle change - and that is major. I don't like diet plans or formulas that guarentee that you will lose X amount of weight in X amount of time. It's all a gimmick in my opinion.

That is why I liked this book - The One Day Way. It is a practical approach that doesn't offer any magic recipes or techniques. Instead it shares mostly about how to "think" about a diet. How to live it. One day at a time.

Author Chantel Hobbs breaks the chains of past diet debacles and frees readers from unrealistic goals. She teaches daily fitness tasks that develop into lasting habits. By focusing energy and attention on doing the right things every day, she frees readers to achieve their weight-loss goals one day at a time.

I’ve got great news for you: You are about to feel better and look better beginning today! Today is truly a new opportunity for you to reach your weight loss goals. No, you won’t fit into your “skinny jeans” today, but I’m going to show you how each day will get you closer to that goal.

Yesterday’s mistakes are gone so let them go. You can’t control tomorrow, so stop worrying about it. Today is your opportunity to lose weight, get strong, and look great. It won’t happen overnight, but you can build a new life by changing your actions immediately and I’m here to show you how to make the changes that will create the new lifestyle you dream of: body, mind, and spirit. Best of all, you will start celebrating right away!

Come on, my friend. Let’s get started! By opening this book, I’ll show you how to unlock every tool you need to lose weight and get fit —and stay that way for the rest of your life. Success can be yours, what are you waiting for?

She will teach you how to change the way you think, which leads to new actions. Before you know it you will be strong, fit, and healthy.
