Thank you for participating in the Slim Down for Spring Challenge 2014!
Hopefully the last four weeks have been an opportunity to focus on yourself and bring more awareness into your life when it comes to the obstacles that keep you from losing weight.
So, we just have one question….
We all want to lose weight for many reasons: our health, our families, our confidence, our ability to stay active, etc. And while we’re all worthy of living our best lives in our best bodies, we want to know: why do you want it?
Is it because you’ve struggled for years and are ready to finally love your body by eating right? Is is because you deserve to live a long life and be there for your children? Is it because you know you deserve to step out for a night on the town and rock that little black dress?
Leave us a comment below and tell us in your own words.
Winners will be announced via email. Thanks again for participating!

If you’ve ever been on a low-carb diet, you probably know that missing pasta comes with the territory.
When I first began eating low carb, I thought I it would be hard to do without certain bread staples like noodles. But as it turns out, I don’t really miss pasta. However, I do miss all the yummy sauces that I would eat on pasta. When I think about it, I never really craved a bowl of plain pasta with nothing on it. What I was truly enjoying was spaghetti and meat sauce, for example. But again, that was really about the sauce. Continue reading
