It’s ME! Deborah Power, NASM, CPT —YEAH— I Did It!
I’m back after a long pause from blogging for an updated post. I didn’t intend to go 8 weeks without posting, but life and studying like a crazy woman got in the way.

As director of Body Now! and a Health Advisor, I have the privilege of meeting many women and hearing their concerns. The topic of weight loss comes up so often I must share my findings. The first is when I ask an individual about health goals, and the answer I get 90% of the time is “lose weight.” Most often, there is deadline. Examples include weddings, vacation, etc. Events can prompt one toward their goals and also brings a personal opportunity to review where the individual is going with her focus. This can be a great start to long lasting success. I cannot express the More >
