The human capacity for change is dependent upon a scientific principle that has been time-tested. The stress-recovery-adaptation model can be observed repeatedly and in a variety of settings. If you want something to grow, you apply stress in the form of increased resistance or fuel, allow for recovery, and then apply more stress at a higher level and by definition, growth has occurred.

On the flip side, the model works inversely. To reduce one must modulate intake or reduce stress, wait, and then continue with reducing total intake. Either way, the application on the principle is not easy and requires thought, programming (or planning) and determination which manifests itself as consistency.

To that end, all action begins with a thought. Therefore, how we think (or what we think) determines said action. In the weight loss game, this concept is everything. In the immortal words of Yankee great Yogi Berra, “90% of the (battle) is half mental.”

Our lesson? – put great thoughts in your mind and act upon them. Here are a few “great thoughts’:

“All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything.”

“If someone tells you, ‘You can’t’ they really mean, ‘I can’t’.”

“Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable or happy. The amount of work is the same.”

Our participants are rocking the program. All teams have combined to lose 415.60 pounds! That kind of success only comes from a mind fixed on the end game with true determination fueling the journey.

There was no change in the order of our leader board, however, big changes are on the horizon. Keep on keeping on and we’ll see you next week.
