You probably know by now that our mission is to help you reach your health, confidence and fitness goals using methods that not only work, but last too.

That’s why the elements we focus on are not mainly about nutrition and exercise, but much deeper stuff.

Size Happy & Healthy (Size HH) works from your brain, to your behaviors and habits, which then has substantial results on your body. You don’t need to buy anything or do anything wacky, but you do need to put the work in. If you are sick of what you see in the mirror and want to make lasting change without dieting or checking the scales, dive into the book and blogs so you can start making the small, but powerful, changes TODAY. You will wish you had started sooner…

Looking For A Way To Lose Weight Faster? This May Change Your Mind…

lose weight faster

Oh yes, we all would love a quick fix right? Some of them work to lose weight on the scales but leave other side affects that could leave you feeling insecure about including sagging skin, no energy or ‘mojo’, dull complexion and brittle hair and nails. This is just a few of the visible effects, not to mention what is going on inside the body. Quick fixes = More effort in the end and a less enjoyable journey.

how to say no

Did You Say Yes When You Wanted To Say No?

Here at Size HH, we are all about finding ways to stay positive and keep our mind and body happy & healthy. Part of this is saying yes to opportunities or challenges that may be outside of your comfort zone, but would really boost your inner confidence if you ‘felt the fear and did it anyway’. Yes is a powerful word and it can bring many benefits, but if you have read the book you will know we are also all about balance. So, that leads us to the word no and sometimes we find this a lot harder than saying yes.

‘Fast Fat Flush’ and ‘detox yourself thin’, just a few ads I’ve seen for some products that look pretty convincing if you are looking to lose weight. Plenty of celebrities have jumped on the detox bandwagon so it must be good right?

Marketers have done a brilliant job of jamming it into our minds that we can drink a certain tea, or take a few tablets in order to detoxify yourself and shed pounds easily. So is it really that simple? Is detoxing the way forward for healthy weight loss?
