When Barack Obama said those famous words, “Yes We Can”, I was truly inspired, I was motivated – honestly I was close to tears not because I’m deep in politics, not even because it was historic for all the obvious reasons, but because when a message of possibility is delivered with passion, confidence, and clarity – you feel it. When hope takes you over, you feel unstoppable – when you can feel the momentum shift for the better, it’s the greatest high in the world.

I know that there are people out there that may feel that there is nothing you can do about your weight – you feel helpless as opposed to hopeful – you feel beaten down rather than lifted up, and if you haven’t quit just yet, you certainly aren’t taking action to change your current situation becasue your past attempts at dieting have driven you striaght to failure avenue.

Sometimes blog posts are long but this one will be a short one – the message is clear. This is a rare moment for my posts when a picture says it all, when a feeling speaks to you, when 3 little words put together so eloquently hit you in the deepest part of your soul. I say to you as your nutritionist, as your trainer, as your motivator and friend – YES YOU CAN!
