If you always focus on trying to lose weight, you will always be trying.  If you focus on being your ideal weight, you will be.

There is more to weight loss than eating a healthy, balanced diet–there are many non-food factors that can help or hinder your progress.How is your Primary Food doing today?

How is your relationship, your career, you home environment? Are you feeling balanced?

The non-food areas of your life are so important to good health–if one of these areas is out of balance, it can have a direct effect on your food choices and your happiness.
