It’s the food!

During our weight loss challenges groups I will often mention some disturbing facts about the food we eat today but I normally take it easy as I am not one for taking the “scaring people’s approach” and honestly, I think people won’t even believe it and will think I am crazy! 🙂

We live in denial, we know it’s “easier” to believe that it’s not that bad than it is to take a real look at the issue, understand it and deal with it. But on the other hand, I think in the same process lies one of the keys to change, just when you have a real look at the issue, understand what it’s causing you, you can get “shocked enough” to deal with it by changing.

Myself, I find it very hard not to change once I have the knowledge of “why I should”…. for example, after I saw “Supersize me” I’ve cut fast food to a bare minimum  but after I saw “Fast food nation” I cut it to ZERO!

Supersize me made me realize the effects of it on my health but I was still thinking “once in a while is okay” but after watching “Fast food nation”, it was the information about Continue reading

Lethbridge Charity Bazaar

We are getting all set up for our 1st Wellness Place Charity Bazaar!!!

We’ve received some donations this week (thanks!!!) and if you have anything to donate, please contact me or drop it here at the club.

The Bazaar idea came as a” solution to a problem”,  as when we are losing weight we start to lose clothes and most of the time we don’t want to spend money to buy new clothes knowing we will lose it :).

So we tough that a “swap” of clothes between our weight loss challenge participants sounded like a good plan but even better than that was if instead of just swaping it, we would use it as a mean to fundraise for some good cause…brilliant I say 😀

Here’s how it’s going to work…

We will have 3 ways to raise funds

1) Clothes – You give $20 and get to pick 4 pieces. If you find 4 pieces or not the minimum donations is $20. Either way you are getting a good deal 😉

2) Club service – Here at the club you get a cup of aloe, a cup of tea and a cup of our Meal replacement, that all together make it for a a “ideal breakfast” and you just make a $4.20 (incl gst) contribution to the club. During the Bazaar time all club service will be donated to the charity. So come HUNGRY!

3) The Bag Ladies kindly donated 2 beautiful new purses that we will have a raffle to raise more money.

With all of that I hope we will have a nice amount of money to donate for the Lethbridge Humane Society and for the Herbalife Family Foundation.

Every month the Bazaar is going to support The Herbalife Family Foundation and a LOCAL organization. We hope we will find the support of our community to make this a strong event that happens month, after month, after month, after month…. Continue reading
