Lighten Up 2013

This past Saturday, all of us participants got off to a rousing start at our weigh-in. We had inspiring words from Laura Kessel of the News-Herald and Jaime Brinkus, the proprietor of LEAN Living. I had the opportunity of meeting with several participants which was enjoyable. One of the slogans on the wall at LEAN Living was "Your Fork and Spoon Are Your Best Pieces of Exercise Equipment". That was an interesting statement and one that I hope will be a motivator. While working out is important, it is not enough. If you aren't careful about what you eat, all the workouts won't help in managing your weight. It was also a great service of Mike from Cabana's Restaurant to offer healthy weekly meals to the participants. I'm looking forward to my health assessment at the Lake County Health Department later today. Thanks again to Laura and Jaime and all who have worked so hard to give us this opportunity.
