Reset Your Thoughts
So your doctor has told you to “lose weight” and “exercise more.”
Did you tune out? Or when you heard it, did you immediately have thoughts like these:
- I feel pretty good the way I am. Why change now?
- It’s too much work. I don’t have the time or energy at this point.
- What difference will it make? Diets don’t work. And I’ve never been able to stick with exercise.
These are thoughts that come to many of us when faced with what seems to be a big change. It sounds like too much to do, it would upset your current lifestyle, and it might even hurt.
Unfortunately, many doctors don’t have the time to give you specifics on how to lose weight or exercise more. That leaves you in the dark as to where to start, and what would work best.
My book is designed to shine some light in that dark space.
It does three major things.
1. Helps you understand why you could be thinking “no way”, “I don’t need that,” or “I’ve tried and failed at that so many times” when it comes to diet and exercise.
2. Shows you that a few changes – changes that actually work – will have a big impact on your health and quality of life without causing major disruption.
3. Shows you that losing some weight and exercising more are THE two biggest things you can do for yourself and your life.
IMPORTANT: This is NOT an advice book or another diet. There are too many of those already! Instead of telling you all the things you should be doing, this book lets you know that you are not alone in feeling resistant to change, that feeling that way is actually normal. My book gives you a map of what the journey to better health really looks like. It gives you a new lens for looking at your health, making decisions about it, and finding a way to make improvements you can live with.

This is a common sense and easy to read approach to what it really takes to make some changes for your health. It’s very difficult to switch from our beloved habits without the knowledge that Kristen gives us in this book. It makes sense to make small steps toward a new you! Rejoicing in each accomplishment helps, and giving yourself the gift of months, not weeks, is so important. Kristen has written an effective, well-researched guide to give many of us an accessible new approach.
