Week #9: Even Healthy Food Has Calories!

Welcome to Week 9! Only three weeks remain in the WellQuest Challenge, and I hope you are really seeing some changes in the way you live, work, eat, and play. 

This week our focus is on the pesky details of weight loss: calories. When it seems like you're doing everything right but the scale isn't budging, it might be time to get out a different scale: the food scale! Weighing portions may seem extreme, but doing it for a day or two can be a real eye-opener. Even healthy food has calories, and the video below demonstrates just what can happen when we assume something is unlimited because it is healthy.

April 26 is Final Assessments
By now you have received an email from me with a link to to sign up for a time to do your final assessments. Many of you have already signed up - thank you! - but there are still some spots left so if you haven't done it, click here to reserve your spot. You do not have to be with your team to do your final measurements. Do please wear loose-fitting clothing just as you did at the Fitness Festival since we will be repeating all of the same measurements that were done in January.

These assessments will be at the FSU Health and Wellness Center located on the FSU campus. Directions have been sent to you via email, and will be sent again.
