For the last year, we at Well Simplified took a break from blogs, postings, and other social media. We were determined to finish what we started in 2014… creating a program that would help end people’s struggle with weight, reach people and families, and be seamless for workplaces to offer to their employees and dependents.
Well, as evident in our newly released websites (www.wellsimplified.com and www.mindsetgoal.com), the plane has landed.
We’ve successfully turned Mind.Set.Goal!™ into a year-long, one-of-a-kind weight and work-life balance program with a platform that reaches everyone, everywhere. Ginny and I have 20+ years combined experience in corporate wellness, community health, nutrition, wellness coaching, and consulting. Not only did we create the Mind.Set.Goal!™ program, we also facilitate the entire program ourselves, including:
- Our 7-step video series
- Workbook and goal cards
- Live monthly webinars
- Live support calls
- Weekly emails
- Ginny’s Healthy Eating Made Easy Guide and other resources
- Aggregate results for companies
The program contains the perfect mix of self-paced programming, coaching, skill-building, and support. It focuses on real issues, relationships, and realistic expectations and gives people a new perspective on how to enjoy eating, exercise, and everyday life.
For the first time, people learn how to set themselves up for success regardless of their schedule, budget, or situation. They learn to move forward no matter what life throws their way. And they ultimately discover health and happiness from the inside out. And in doing so, they end their struggle with weight along the way.
Mind.Set.Goal!™ also comes with a free trial for corporate wellness teams and includes marketing materials, easy enrollment, and aggregate company results. We literally do all the work from start to finish, behind the scenes, and all year long so that wellness coordinators and busy HR professionals can get back to their other work.
“I have participated in many staff trainings and wellness program offerings, previously at State Farm and now through the School District’s medical insurance plan. I usually participate because I have to or to get the discount. But this one is different. It’s not so robotic and impersonal. Rather, it’s conversational, has great content, and gets to the root of the problem. I believe it has a much better chance of actually changing a person’s health behaviors. Very well done.” Scott T.
We’ve committed the last 5 years to perfecting Mind.Set.Goal!™, and we plan to dedicate our careers to it. Why? Because it’s time for “weight management” to go beyond the energy balance equation and get to the root of the problem. It’s also time for worksite wellness programs to be meaningful, personalized, and convenient for employees and family members alike, especially when it comes to this sensitive issue.
When I was the Wellness Benefits Coordinator for Larimer County, Colorado, I saw the “weight problem” from all sides of the table.
As a member of the Insurance Advisory Committee, I saw overweight and obesity get the blame for millions in health care claims each year. As one of the overseers of their employer-sponsored health clinic, I saw average BMI numbers increase every year despite top-notch disease management efforts. As a Wellcoaches® certified health and wellness coach, I listened to employees open up about their frustration, fears, and failings with weight. Whether they battled weight internally or externally, the fight wasn’t easy. It got the better of them in many ways, personally and professionally. And yes, these were successful, smart, and hard-working people who had tried everything… from diets to food plans to weight loss competitions and more. Yet they still struggled.
This bothered them. This bothered me. And it also hit home with my sister Ginny, a community health dietitian serving the communities of Fort Collins and Loveland, Colorado, at the time.
“People would call me asking what they or their kids should do personally, or where they should go, to lose weight. I was the Obesity Prevention Supervisor for the region and I honestly didn’t have a good answer. My list of referral resources was extremely limited — and of course even more so once other factors were considered, like when the program was offered, how long it lasted, the location, etc. This was beyond frustrating for them… and for me.”
Long story short, Ginny and I eventually teamed up and made it our mission to create Mind.Set.Goal!™, a program to help people end their struggles with weight, improve relationships, and feel great… for good! It took us time to create, pilot, and perfect. But now it’s just that: perfect for people, family members, and worksites.
