Weight-loss Tips: 4 Easy Ways to Lose Weight with SENSA®

May 30th, 2014 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam No Comments »

Stay Motivated!Wouldn’t it be nice if we could customize our weight-loss program to fit our personality? One thing I know about myself is; I do not like to weigh or measure my food. I do not like to count calories or go on crash diets. Where does that leave me in finding the right weight-loss program tailored to fit my needs?

Several years ago, I became very discouraged and concerned about my weight. I had been on many diets in the past. Each diet created for me frustration due to the restrictions and the time it took for me to prepare my meals. I guess the way you would describe my attitude about dieting would have been one of hopelessness and great distress. I really needed one that fit my personality and that is when I discovered the SENSA® Weight-loss Program. The simplicity and effectiveness of this program is one you have to experience.

 

4 easy ways to lose weight with SENSA®.

1. Start at the beginning.
Weigh and measure yourself each week. Log your changes. All of us need incentives in order to keep us focused and challenged. Put up an old picture of yourself of a weight you would like to be again. Or hang up an outfit you would like to wear when you lose your weight. Remember you are doing this for YOU!

2. Be consistent with SENSA®.
You are given two shakers for each month; one to use at home, and one to take with you. Put it in sight, on the table or wherever you eat your meals. Keep one in your purse or pocket at all times. Consistency is the key to your weight-loss success. If sprinkled on all meals and snacks, the 2 shakers should last one user approximately 30 days. At the end of the month, you must move on to the following Month so your body does not become resistant to the blend, and you continue to lose weight.

3. What can you expect?
Get excited and ready for change. You will find the SENSA® ADVANCED 6 Month kit a new & improved formula that consists of stronger SENSA® to help curb your appetite Photo courtesy of Flickr: Mod as Hellplus it has a key nutrient to help your body metabolize carbohydrates and fats.  It will also diminish your cravings and teach you portion control. Also SENSA® QUENCH an energy-packed vitamin mix drink that counts toward your water intake. There are many outstanding SENSA® products to help you reach your weight-loss goal with ease and enjoyment along the way.

4. Get daily support and encouragement.
Accountability motivates you and keeps you on track.  Finding others that are like-minded is necessary for you to feel comfortable with yourself throughout your weight-loss journey. The SENSA® Community is a good place for you to find friends that are there to give you the support, encouragement and great tips throughout your weight-loss journey.

This is the first day of the rest of your life. Some of us have a few pounds to lose and others have more to lose. Whatever you need to lose, do it for YOU.I wish you the best to you on your journey with SENSA®.

*Sensa works for 60% of users. The average weight loss of those users is about 9 lbs over 6 months without instructions to diet or exercise.

A New Start & New Year

January 7th, 2014 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam No Comments »

2014

I wonder how many times I have waited until the start of a new year to go on a diet. The plan in my mind was always to get rid of the old and start the New Year off with a renewed mind-set and a good diet plan. Unfortunately, each year brought more hopelessness until I heard about SENSA® and made it a part of my daily life. Finding a product that is easy-to-use, safe, and effective is something we all desire. SENSA® gave me more than I could ever imagine. I was not restricted from the foods I enjoy eating, and it gave me the control to be satisfied longer with smaller portions of food.

Can you imagine starting a new weight-loss program with no charts to follow, no weighing/measuring your food, or counting calories? Not some new fad diet that may give you a fast weight-loss, only to make a quick return to your previous weight. If you have failed trying various diets in hopes of looking the way you have always longed to look, don’t feel defeated. Napoleon Hill says, “When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.”

Let’s start 2014 by making our dreams a reality….here’s how:

  • Start with a new mind-set: We often start a new weight-loss program with yesterday’s thinking. Write down all the negative thoughts you have regarding each previous defeat with your old diets (e.g. “nothing ever works for me”, “I always fail no matter what I do” etc.). Then write down new and positive thoughts that will lead you to success.
  •  Habits are important, whether they are good or bad: What triggers you to fall back into the old habits that stopped you from having weight-loss success? Make a list of circumstances or events that may trigger emotional eating. Use productive thinking and write out what you can do to succeed and not give into your old habits.
  •  Use SENSA® correctly and consistently for your success: A new weight-loss program takes some time to become familiar with. It has been said you get out of life what you put into it. SENSA® carries that same theme; consistency is the key to your success. Shake SENSA® on everything you eat (except liquids) and eat slowly. Pay attention, and as soon as you START to feel full, stop eating. Exercise and eating healthy foods are encouraged to achieve long-term sustainable weight-loss. If you stick with the system, you will lose weight.
  •  Find a trustworthy support system: Many of us fail at doing our best because we do not have a person/s that will tell us what we need to hear instead of what we want to hear. You need someone that will be there for you in both the good times and the bad.  SENSA® has provided the mySENSA Community with people striving for the same goals you are trying to achieve. You might have a friend or neighbor that will support you, but whoever it is, they should be there from the start to the finish and make sure they always have your best interest in mind.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. How are you going to spend it? Don’t wait to get started, SENSA® is wishing you the best on your weight-loss journey.My weight loss gave me a new start in life and I wish the same success for you. Make 2014 a year designed just for the new you!

Maintenance at its best!

October 18th, 2013 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam 6 Comments »

Maintenance at its best!

Many of us want to know, when we reach our goal weight with SENSA® then what? Is there a maintenance program after this? The answer is yes but it depends on how ready you are to maintain your goal weight you have achieved. Mike Ditka says it best, “Some people are willing to pay the price and it’s the same with staying healthy or eating healthy. There’s some discipline involved. There’s some sacrifices.”

SENSA® is a six month weight-loss program. In that amount of time we learn many valuable lessons; listening to our body when it starts to feel full and stop eating, balancing our diet with nutritional food, exercise to fight fatigue and boost our energy, and portion control.

You know as well as I do old habits are hard to break and new habits take time to establish. Many times we find ourselves returning to our old way of eating and thinking about food. We get excited that we have finally reached our weight-loss goal and decide to celebrate our success. The question is; are we celebrating in a way that is productive for long-term sustainable weight-loss?

If we find ourselves slipping into unproductive eating patterns, I find we do one of two things; we either blame SENSA® for not doing what we believed it was supposed to do or we blame ourselves for not being able to ever keep our weight off no matter how hard we try. Do we see the missing link in our thinking? SENSA® is a tool to curb our appetite, diminish our cravings and teach us portion control. Our job is to come to an understanding of what it will take for us to maintain our weight-loss success. Where are you in this process?

Let’s examine ourselves and see if we are ready for maintenance.

What was your reason for starting SENSA?

Many of us have tried diets that may have given us a fast weight-loss but little time to change any habits. Some diets we have used have been time consuming, counting calories to weighing food.  Some have come in pill form that has given us a rapid heartbeat and costly side-effects. SENSA® on the other hand allows us to eat what everyone else eats while curbing our appetite; diminishing our cravings and helping us learn portion control. The process is easy and allows the body to gradually adjust to smaller portions, making it easier to practice moderation which helps us achieve long-term sustainable weight-loss.

How long have you been on the program?

Giving ourselves time to adjust to a new product is very important but many of us want instant gratification which translates into fast weight-loss. The National Institute of Health recommends aiming to lose 1 to 2 pounds per week for safe, sustainable weight-loss.  SENSA® recommends we stick with the system and we will lose weight. They also advocate a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and portion control.

What have you learned since you have been on your weight-loss journey?

Old habits are hard to break and new habits take time to establish. There are many things that might stop this process, so learning about you and what triggers you is essential for your success. Are you an emotional eater? Does boredom give you cause to eat? Do the stressors in your life cause you to comfort yourself with food?  As you can see it takes time to give you a long-term sustainable weight-loss if these issues are not dealt with over time and practical steps to help you.  The SENSA® Community is a great place for support, encouragement and tips, with people much like you.  Many are finding success at overcoming these areas of weaknesses with SENSA® and the support of one another.

Are you ready for maintenance?

After processing all the questions that are necessary for success to maintain your new found weight-loss; are you ready for maintenance? SENSA® is a tool to help you as you continue on your journey of breaking the old habits and empowering you to establish portion control, healthy living, and a regular exercise routine. This is a decision that only you can make in continuing with the aid of SENSA® or branching out with all you have learned to live maintenance at its best!

Good Luck to you all!

What are you reaching for and why?

October 3rd, 2013 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam, Main No Comments »

 

 Zig Ziglar said, “If you want to reach a goal you must see the reaching in your mind before you actually arrive at your goal.” This statement is what makes us or breaks us. Having a picture in our mind of what we hope to accomplish is a recipe for success. On the other hand, having a picture of where you have been and what has not worked for you in the past, is a recipe for failure.  So let’s clear our mind for a moment and start focusing on what brought you to the point of trying again.

I know for me I had been on many diets and most of them were met with excitement but ended in defeat due to all the restrictions and the disappointment of gaining my weight back. Did I say gaining my weight back? Yes! And it just kept coming. I found that my body was reacting to the extra 45 pounds I was forcing it to carry. As much as we find some things in our lives to be things we hate, they can also be the motivation to give us a push in the right direction. In my case I needed to find the “why” in my pursuit of trying to reach my goal weight.

You might say your body hurting should have been enough. Well it was but I needed more. I have the privilege of raising three grandchildren and living a healthy and long-life to enjoy everything about them was enough to move me forward.   The question was: What am I going to do this time that would be different and that would bring about a life-long healthy change.

That was when I found SENSA®. The ease of SENSA’s 6 Month Weight-loss Program made my journey a realistic, measurable, attainable and tangible journey.  SENSA® is all about a healthy lifestyle, with regular exercise and portion control.  I know that many of you can say that you dieted for all of the reasons I just mentioned and none of them worked. The difference with SENSA®, is it removes the measuring, weighing and numerous restrictions you find in a diet program and it makes it simple, safe and effective without much effort on your part.

Let’s look at what SENSA® and your efforts can offer you in reaching your weight-loss goals.

How much are you reaching for?

Do you need to lose weight and if so how much? Start by finding your body mass index (BMI). You can check with your doctor or you can find helpful tools online that can measure your body fat based on your height and weight and age. Take your measurements of your upper arms, forearm, chest, hips, waist, thighs and calves. Weigh yourself first thing in the morning before you eat or drink anything.  Continue to take your weight weekly and remember if the scale does not move you are still making progress.

Why do you want to lose weight?

Think about your health, family, friends, and responsibilities. Get a picture in your mind of what you are trying to achieve and work towards it. Put up a picture of what you used to look like, an outfit you would love to wear or just a picture of your family. Whatever will motivate you let that be your inspiration. You are worth it.

How can you achieve your goal weight with SENSA®?

There are many methods to losing weight and only you can determine what is best for you. In order to make this a good and successful experience, make it realistic for you, make it doable. Stay focused on your goal, and when you reach it, if you want to lose more, set another goal.

When it comes to weight-loss with SENSA® there is no “typical” timeline for losing weight. Although many people lose weight in the very first month, everyone experiences weight-loss differently.  The National Institute of Health recommends aiming to lose 1-2 pounds per week is safe, sustainable weight-loss.  SENSA® advocates a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and portion control. The key is being consistent with shakin’ SENSA® and you will find it curbs your appetite, diminish your cravings and help you shake off the inches and pounds.

Also you might add the SENSA® CHEWS which will help you feel fuller, eat less, take in fewer calories and help you enhance your weight-loss results.

Try the SENSA® QUENCH drink. The ingredients have shown to increase your metabolism and as many users have reported, it enhances weight-loss results.

Add to your routine the SENSA® Complete Nutritional Supplements. They are designed to provide balance for vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and therogenics your body needs to influence metabolism, will power, overall well-being, cravings and to perform at peak levels for reaching your weight-loss goals.

The SENSA® SNACK BAR is a delicious filled with peanut butter and chocolate chips that provide a great source of protein, fiber and sprinkled with SENSA®.

How can I keep my mind on reaching my goal?

Join the SENSA® Community at mysensa.com. It is filled with like-minded people who are ready to give you great tips, support and encouragement. Need a good picture of success? Read the success stories and interact with those that have had challenges, success and maintained their weight-loss with SENSA®.  You can do this and the members on the community are there waiting to help you be a success too.

I am so glad I took the challenge of figuring out what I was reaching for and why. I was a woman in my 60’s weighing in at 175 when I started with SENSA® and 7 months later I was 130 pounds. I went from a size 14 to a 4. Now that is quite a transformation and the best part I feel good and love playing and doing things with my husband and grandchildren.  I wish you the best on your journey with SENSA®.

Do This for You!

October 3rd, 2013 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam, Main No Comments »

Do This for You!

Most of us, including myself, have lived most of our lives making choices to please others. We try to be perfect and keep it up forever, only to find ourselves worn-out, depressed and losing hope. Bill Cosby says. “I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.”

Just recently I received a message from someone struggling with this very thing. She said, “My bigger issue is sprinkling in front of people. I work with professional people and I do not want them to see what I am doing. I take my lunch somewhere else and sprinkle before I return to the lunch table. It has become inconvenient and so I finally just quit sprinkling SENSA. It’s probably the failure factor. Ugh! I am stuck and would appreciate any suggestions.”

If you can identify with this then what I have to say will help you too.

1.  Who are you losing weight for?

You are valuable and worth giving yourself every opportunity you can to achieve your personal goals.+

2.  How much weight would you like to lose?

Look at your overall weight-loss goal. Break it down in small increments of 5 or 10 pounds and celebrate each victory.

3.  When do you find yourself struggling to stay on task?

If you are struggling to use SENSA® in front of others here is a great tip: Use an unmarked container but make sure it is opaque and airtight to maintain quality. Tell others it is a special seasoning you like to use on your meals.

4. Where can you get support to keep you focused and strong in reaching your weight-loss goals?

Go to the mysensa.com community. You will find like minded people on the same journey and willing to give you great tips, support and encouragement.

5.  What will it take for you to reach your weight-loss goals?

Be consistent with shakin’ SENSA® on everything you eat except liquids. Eat until you START to feel full and STOP. Take your weight and measurements and enjoy the results.

Dear friends this is something you have to want to do for you! I echo what William J. H. Boetcker said, “That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.” I stepped up to the “plate” and did what was right for me; I lost 45lbs in 7 months and went from a size 14 to a 4 by using SENSA®.

When I realized how hard I had worked at trying to control my weight and the reasons behind it, I became upset. This was a real turning point for me in my permanent weight-loss. My success was going to come from me cheering me on and obtaining my weight-loss goals for me and not for others.

I had to believe in myself and do this for me. My success came from me believing in myself and knowing this is something I wanted for me. Are you willing to do this for you? I look forward to your weight-loss success with SENSA®!

You Are What You Eat

April 2nd, 2013 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam, Main No Comments »

plate of foodDoes my title seem harsh to you? I had to reach a point in my life where I had to come to terms with telling myself you are what you eat. I would love to blame it on my family and say, if they had not made me eat everything on my plate, even when I was full, I would not have continued this pattern throughout my life and gained weight. But the truth is even though my mother, who was a fabulous cook, and loved to cook southern style meals, she made sure they were balanced with protein, vegetables, salads and delicious desserts.

What have I done to take what I learned in terms of eating everything on my plate to another level? For starters I piled more food on my plate than I needed. If anyone had any food left on their plate I had to eat it and not waste it. Also, I made sure I tasted all the food while it was cooking to make certain it was just right for my family to eat. I made sure there was extra serving of desert for me to eat later. When evening came I sat down and pulled up some of my favorite finger foods and grazed until bedtime. Now may I add one more time, you are what you eat!

If you can identify with anything that I have described with my pre- SENSA eating habits please keep reading. Know that there is hope for those that “just cannot stop eating!”

Let’s look at 5 practical ways to break these vicious uncontrollable eating expeditions.

  • Take ownership of your eating habits.  First acknowledge what you eat, how often you eat and how much you eat. Deal with the discomfort of facing how you have slipped into patterns that are out of control. Write them all down on paper and continue to add to them as you spot new areas.
  • Stop blame-shifting.  No matter what your past has been and how you feel you have developed unproductive eating habits, blaming others is not the answer to your freedom from the bondage of overeating. Write down all your excuses that you use to blame others or circumstances for what and why you eat like you do.
  • Get ready to make some positive changes.  Start with SENSA and understand what a great tool it provides for you to have weight-loss success. SENSA curbs your appetite, diminishes your cravings and teaches you portion control. The struggles you are facing can be accomplished by shaking SENSA on everything you eat except liquids. Eat slowly, and pay attention, as soon as you START to feel full you should STOP eating. Also if you are already on another weight-loss program or diet at the time that you start SENSA, you should continue on that program and use SENSA in addition to it. SENSA should not be used as a substitute for an existing diet plan you are on. SENSA promotes healthy weight loss through portion control.
  • Record your progress.  Start by logging your starting weight and your measurements. Weight and measure yourself once a week and log your progress. Take a picture pre-SENSA and one each month to visually see the changes your body is making. Log the positive changes in your eating habits and do not deviate from them. If you slip back into your old habits record it and what was going on at the time you fell off the wagon.  You can use the food log on mySENSA.com to help you keep track of your meals.
  • Get accountability.  There is no doubt that having someone cheering you on, believing in what you are doing for you, gives you great strength, the motivation and courage to keep on keeping on. Find a friend, neighbor or family member to keep you on track. If you are like many with whom I have communicated, then you would say I have no one to do that for me. I have the solution for you, join the SENSA Community. There you will find all the help and support you need.

Now when I hear the title, You Are What You Eat, I find peace of mind and pleasure as I reflect on the results that I have obtained by using SENSA. I have lost 45 pounds and have gone from a size 14 to a 4 in 7 months. My partnership with SENSA has given back to me my true sense of self. It has changed the way I view food and has given me the desire to eat nutritious food. The portion control I learned during my journey has given me the power to overcome the bondage of overeating.

How Committed Are You?

March 7th, 2013 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam, Main 29 Comments »

Keep Calm and Sprinkle OnMany of you ask me, what did you do to lose your weight? Anthony Robbins answers this question so eloquently, “I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent…”

When I began my journey with SENSA Weight-Loss System, I was determined to make this work. Was I convinced that SENSA would work and this was the right product for me? NO, but what I was convinced of was that it was time I do something with a never-ending commitment until I achieved my weight-loss goal.  And with SENSA the mountains were leveled and the rewards have been never-ending!

Let’s take a look at how you can measure you commitment and reach your goals!

 

  1. Who are you doing this for?  Sometimes we can run into opposition when we start a new program. This can come from someone within your circle of support or from within yourself. Either way, if it is not dealt with, your commitment will be short lived and unproductive. Stand up for what you believe is best for you and be consistent with your decision.
  2. Listen to the SENSA DVD and booklet-Starting a new program can sometimes create anxiety and leave you feeling overwhelmed. So listening and reading the information gives you the self-confidence you need to be successful. Knowing that you can still eat the foods you love, but remember that your overall goal is to eat less of it. At the most basic level, weight loss is achieved by consuming fewer calories than you burn. So in order to lose your weight, you need to take in fewer calories than you use. Remember not to use SENSA® as an excuse to overindulge or overeat.
  3.  Get additional support to keep you accountable.  Not all of us have those that believe in the decision we have made to start a new weight-loss program. This can become very discouraging and disheartening if we continue to listen to what others are saying. Finding like-minded people, with the same desire to see you achieve your weight-loss goal journey is essential for your success. I immediately joined the mySENSA Community and found those that had success, SENSA tips and a desire to encouragement me throughout my journey.
  4. Exercise is important for physical fitness and good health.  When I started my SENSA® journey I did not have time to go to the gym or workout. But what I did have is three grandchildren to keep me on the move. It is amazing how many steps we can take in a day or how many stretching and bending positions we can find ourselves in with daily routines and family obligations. Some of you will find you cannot exercise due to a limited ability to move around. Every bit of movement is in your favor. Use your imagination with a never-ending commitment & consistency to find a way to shake it up! SENSA  advocates a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and portion control.
  5. Reward yourself along the way.  Start your SENSA journey with a before picture of yourself.  Record your starting weight and measurements each week. Each month take a picture of yourself and watch the notable changes you would otherwise miss. At the end of each month reward yourself with something special. A special lunch, a new piece of clothing or some sort of celebration to congratulate yourself for achieving each mini-goal. You might have a piece of clothing in your closet you used to wear and dream about wearing again. Take it out and hang in up on the door. Sometimes visual aids keep us focused and our dreams alive. Be creative and make this journey filled with obtainable and ever-lasting memories.

I am cheering you on this awesome SENSA Weight-Loss Journey. You are my inspiration and with that said I leave you with these words of encouragement by Tom Chappel “Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them. Everyday begin the task anew.”    So, how committed are you?   Tell me, in the comments below, what you’re doing to show your commitment to the SENSA Weight Loss program and you’ll have a chance to win these awesome new pink Ostrich Fashion Case so you can shake away the pounds in style!  Two winners will be picked at random on Monday 3/11/13.   Right now SENSA is having a promotion where you can get this super cute shaker case free with your purchase of the SENSA Slims On-the-Go Packets so you can commit to SENSA anytime, anywhere and shake with confidence!  Good luck to you!

Keep Shakin’

Out with the Old and In with the New!

January 8th, 2013 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam 2 Comments »

coach miriamThis is an exciting time in our lives. We are leaving behind 2012 and heading toward a New Year 2013.  An Unknown Author has captured the true essence of where we live, “People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.” Well,  that is how we are going to start this New Year, new, hopeful and ready to face the challenges ahead of us.

Fortunately for us, we have a safe, effective weight-loss product called SENSA ready to help us embrace this necessary endeavor. SENSA helps diminishes your cravings and teaches you portion control. If you are anything like I was when I started a “diet” program, trying to diet was not only hard but impossible to face without some sort of intervention from the inside out. By the time the New Year’s rolled around, I had begun to plan my new attack on how to lose my unwanted weight. With great shame I admit I finished up the previous year by making sure I ate all that I wanted before I started my “new” diet! Can you identify with that?

Well I am here to see that we do not repeat the New Year of 2013 like we did the Old Year 2012. What is that going to require of us? Don’t panic you have help. Not only do you have the best product on the market, but a Coach that cares about you and has the experience and success with using SENSA. We are going to do this together!  So let’s get started!

Six steps in getting rid of the old and putting on the new for 2013.
1. Start with using SENSA on everything you eat except liquids. You might say that is a whole lot of shakin’ Coach! You shake it on everything you eat except liquids with no exception. Eat until you START to feel full and STOP!
2. Make a list of your old habits, in thinking, speech and action. Example: This won’t work, I have tried it all! This is too hard to remember to use. I don’t want anyone else knowing what I am doing. This sounds too easy to be true. This better work fast or I am done!
3. Make a list of new habits, thinking, speech and action. Example: I can do this. Others have had success and I can too. I am taking this one day at a time. I get to eat what I want! I will make notes and post them all over the house and/or at my desk. I will keep one container in my pocket and leave the other one at home. I will download the Sprinkle Reminder App on my Android or my iPhone to help me remember to use it.
4. Find friends to support you daily. Go to the SENSA Community and join a group/s and get involved. No matter how much weight you have to lose others understand and are there to give you tips, support & encouragement.
5. Keep a weekly log on your weight-loss as well as your measurements. The National Institute of Health recommends aiming to lose 1 to 2 pounds per week for safe, sustainable weight loss.
6. Reward yourself by reaching small goals. Example: Go out to lunch and eat something special. Treat yourself to a new piece of clothing. Find a new piece of clothing or picture of what your new goal is going to be.

Now that is a simple list of things to do. Your job is to refine your lists and to make this workable for you. Never deviate from the basic guidelines. You are in control and SENSA is at your side. So out with the old and in with the New YOU! I went from 175 to 130 pounds and from a size 14 to a size 4 in 7 months*. How did I do it? I followed my recommendations I have written for you. I never looked back and pressed ahead to take hold of the prize, a New Me!  Happy 2013 SENSA Friends!

Keep Shakin’!

Are You at a Stand Still with Your Weight-Loss?

December 4th, 2012 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam 12 Comments »

How many times have we found ourselves becoming frustrated or discouraged because the goals and expectations we have for ourselves are not coming to fruition fast enough? Earl Nightingale says it best, “Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in your way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put the passing time to the best possible use.”

We all find that adjustments and changes can bring about a certain amount of stress in our lives. Routines and schedules is what can either keep us motivated or stuck in one spot for a very long period of time. Depending on how long we have been practicing a certain habit/s makes the difference in how quickly our body is going to respond to any new changes or expectations we are putting on ourselves. Cumulative time is what is needed for any of us to see change and to make healthy life-long choices for weight-loss, good health and an over-all well being.

With that being said, sometimes we need to make changes that will give our body a wake-up call. We are creators of habit, so whether the changes are rooted in unproductive eating/exercise habits or we have begun incorporating constructive eating and exercise, it calls for us to make on-going adjustments in order to get our body to be responsive to the changes. “I have found that the greatest help in meeting any problem is to ‘know’ where you yourself stand. That is, to have in words what you believe and are acting from.” By William Faulkner. The question is what do you know about you and how can you start your weight-loss engine?

Let me share some ideas that might get you started and moving forward.
1. Start a Journal and list what your goals and expectations you believe works for you. Put down your start weight, mini goals and final destination. Include your weaknesses and strengths. What does it take to send you into your old habits; negative self-talk, others comments, certain foods, certain times of the month, life stressors, boredom or maybe just previous attempts at weight-loss/exercise. Be honest and become your best friend and break the cycle that holds you back.
2. Get some accountability. Join the SENSA Community and join one or more of the Support Groups. Call a friend when you are about to return to your old habits and talk it through. Or you can post on the Community as someone is always waiting to give you a helping hand and point you in the right direction.
3. Start an Exercise Program. SENSA Community gives you plenty of incentive in this area. Walk Across America Rewards Program is a place you can start walking and losing with friends with the same mindset and goals. You can be rewarded for your efforts and challenge yourself to move beyond where you are at the present time.
5. Last but not least. Be consistent with shaking SENSA on everything you eat except liquids. Listen to your body and when you START to feel full STOP! Drink plenty of water to wash out the toxins and fats as well as hydrate your body. Enjoy the SENSA Quench that will supply you with energy and count as part of your water intake. Also, order the SENSA Chews to help curb your appetite between meals.

Change is good my SENSA Friends. We all have the ability to do anything we set our mind to. It is our attitude and perspective in life that either enables or limits us in what we can achieve. SENSA is a tool that gives us the help that we on our own have not been able to achieve.  I look forward to your success!

Keep Shakin’!

Everyone Needs Support: SENSA Wants to Join You in Your Journey

November 6th, 2012 Coach Miriam Posted in Coach Miriam, Main 13 Comments »

“We deceive ourselves when we fancy that only weakness needs support. Strength needs it far more.” By Anne Sophie Swetchine
Wow could I identify with Anne’s statement. I didn’t know which end of the spectrum I was at, weak or strong, but I knew that I needed support. When I started my journey with SENSA, I was not only skeptical about taking a chance on another weight-loss program but the people around me were less than supportive. My husband was very trim and questioned whether spending more money on another diet was a wise decision on my part. At least I had that part down, and the answer was yes, I was going to buy SENSA. Sidney Sheldon says it best, “Don’t give up. There are too many nay-sayers out there who will try to discourage you. Don’t listen to them. The only one who can make you give up is yourself.”

SENSA had offered me hope and my decision was final. I was tired of carrying my extra weight and the toll it was taking on my body was not only painful but it was zapping my energy. The picture I had in my mind, of what I looked like, was anything but attractive or acceptable. The clock was ticking and I was not wasting one more day, gaining one more pound!  To my surprise, not only did SENSA offer me an effective weight-loss product but they also provided me with the SENSA Community!  This was just the motivator I needed to get me started, focused and remain steadfast on my new 6 Month SENSA Weight-Loss Program.

Let’s look at some of the benefits of joining the SENSA Community.

1. Group Support-Having the support of people with common interests and experiences is priceless. They can relate to where you have been, what you are going through and give you the moral support you need so you do not feel alone.
2. Individualized Groups-Meeting the needs you have specifically have laid out for yourself is very important. To help us feel connected and fulfill these areas we have groups like:

  • The Losing 10-50# Club. This group supports those that set small goals in their weight-loss program or for those that have a smaller amount to lose.
  • The Losing 51-99# Club. This group supports those that are seeking to lose 51-99 pounds.
  • The 100+ Club. This group supports those that have the most to lose but gets the loudest cheers!
  • The Fabulous Fabs. This group supports a diverse range of weight-loss goals.

3. Monthly Challenges & Prizes

  • Walk Across America Rewards Program. This is a program that has four walking levels to suit your fitness needs and goals. Prizes are given to reward your efforts of a minimum of 50 miles.
  • Success in Progress & Rewards Club. This is a program that consists of committed SENSA Users that are sharing their SENSA Journeys with weekly updates on their progress. Rewards are given upon completion of your success at different levels.
  • Monthly Weight-Loss Challenges. The Support Groups give prizes for the most weight-lost each month. All of the groups and monthly challenges give you different SENSA products to keep you fortified with the SENSA QUENCH, the SENSA CHEWS as well as SENSA.

You will not want to miss joining the SENSA Community. It is here that I received my support, encouragement with like-minded people who were also looking to lose weight once and for all. I want you to experience the ease of talking to others that have walked paths similar to yours. The great thing is, you don’t have to do this alone ever again. The friendships you will develop will be a constant reminder of how valuable you are and how much others count on your support in their lives. It is here that my SENSA friends watched and cheered me on from my start weight of 175 to my goal weight of 130. They enjoyed the changes with me as I went from a size 14 to a 4 in a total of 7 month. I will be watching for your arrival at the SENSA Community. I value YOU as my SENSA friend, so come and join me!

Keep Shakin’!
