Yes, see “How can I join a Live Free From Obesity group?

This is going to be different for everyone.  I know how I’d like it to work for everyone: I have been working on it now, one way and another, for over 30 years.  I know how I’d like it to work for me (I haven’t achieved everything I want yet, either!)

But I have long-since learned that we’re all different: we will all need different things.

So here’s my vision.  I have learned a huge amount of stuff.  That’s:

  1. Nutrition stuff,
  2. Exercise stuff
  3. Mind and Emotions stuff
  4. Brain stuff
  5. Relationship stuff
  6. Supporting one another stuff
  7. etc

My aim is to provide people with some way of learning whatever stuff they need, and learning how to support one another in a “peer and reciprocal” way.

What does that mean? Well, in a nutshell:

  • If backside kicking is what is needed to get us, say, to get up and go for a walk, then I’ll kick your backside if you’ll kick mine.
  • If a hug is what is needed in order to provide the comfort that we’d otherwise seek in the fridge, then I’ll give you a hug if you’ll give me a hug.
  • And if no-one ever listened to you, and you just need to get stuff off your chest, then I’ll listen to you if you’ll listen to me.  (read “The Art of Listening“.)

People are different.  Live Free From Obesity’s mission is to help:

  1. People who need to get together in the same room, develop strong relationships, and provide amazing support to one another in order to change their whole lifestyles.
  2. People who just need chapter and verse on what to do to change their nutrition and exercise.
  3. People who just need a diet sheet.

(I was all three: I now have 2 and 3, but I still need 1!)

Some people seem to be able to do this whole “getting lean and fit” thing all by themselves, with no more help than you’d get from a book.

I’m not one of them, and, if you’ve asked this question then I guess that you aren’t, either!

We can join groups in several ways.  Firstly, and most easily, there are a lot of Facebook groups that provide help and assistance.  Here are three that I work with regularly with the ketogenic diet:

There is also a smaller, more private (closed) Facebook Group called Together We Can Weightloss.  Click that link, and ask to join, and send me a message using the contact form, telling me your real name and your Facebook name, and I will approve you becoming a member.

That group will have more personal questions and more emotional and psychological stuff (the mechanics of low-carb dieting are massively covered elsewhere).

Lastly, I will be running physical groups where we all get together under the same roof, in order to establish new friendships, new support networks, new habits, and new lifestyles.

Let me know that you’re interested, and I’ll make sure that you know when that happens.

When these groups are running regularly, they will probably be quite expensive.  The first few will be much lower cost (basically just covering overheads) until the model is refined and we know how well it works.
