Good Measure Meals™ Helps Gwinnett Lose It!
Weight Loss Contest Promotes Nutrition, Fitness and Emotional Health as Keys to Safe Weight Loss
Good Measure Meals™ is very proud of the work we do in support of Open Hand‘s community nutrition programs and in conjunction with our partners whose programs share our mission of creating a healthier community.
One such program is Gwinnett’s Losing It! — a 12-week weight loss contest which educates and motivates its contestants to not only succeed in reaching their weight loss goals, but do so in a safe and healthy way. It offers individuals an opportunity to change their bodies and their lives forever.
Good Measure Meals™ is excited to be the nutrition partner of this very special program. As a Gold Sponsor, GMM provides discounts on meal plans for the participants and awards the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners with prizes designed to keep them safely on their journey to a healthier lifestyle.
Gwinnett’s Losing It! was launched by high-energy certified fitness trainer and sports nutrition specialist Sandi Porter and her health and wellness company Start With the Inside, which was founded to help individuals address the emotional side of losing weight.
The competition began in August with 20 contestants and ended in November with 20 contestants — now that’s dedication! Participants were educated and coached in proper exercise and nutrition, as well as how to overcome emotional obstacles to losing weight. Weekly meetings and weigh-ins with Sandi provided them the moral support they needed to get over any difficulties they encountered.
Sandi is a powerful motivator, having been through many of the same challenges her clients face on a daily basis. In 2001 she began her own fitness transformation when, after being overweight for 8 years, she got fed up with how she felt. She saw herself in a family photo still wearing maternity pants when her youngest child was 4 years old, and decided it was time to make a change. Her successful journey and transformation inspired her to create a program to help others achieve their goals. And Start With the Inside was born.
The next 12-week competition will begin in January, with registration beginning December 1, 2011. For more information about the program, visit StartWithTheInside.com.
Good Measure Meals™ is proud to help support Sandi and her clients in making healthy and lasting changes to their lives and we congratulate all 20 contestants on their achievements.
