The good and the not-so-good about the S.E.L.F.I.E. Method

espnW’s Sarah Spain recently published an article on the S.E.L.F.I.E. Method she created.

Here’s what I like about the method:

  • It emphasizes getting to the gym, which is a critical element of weight loss and health.
  • The group aspect allows for accountability.
  • The donation to a politician you DON’T agree with add an extra incentive to do you workouts. I know that would personally motivate me!

Here’s what I think it lacks:

  • A diet aspect. If you are looking to successfully lose weight, diet has to be a part of it. I’m not sure how you could easily incorporate that into the S.E.L.F.I.E. Method, but if you want to lose weight successfully and fast, you have to eat healthy and consume less calories.

    Hello There!

    I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia last week so you can imagine how overwhelmed I feel right now. Not much has changed in the last week! haha. But I have a great attitude and stumbled upon your blog. IT IS AMAZING! so THANK YOU!!!!!! It has given me great information in the last week and it is so encouraging to see it be done successfully! I am loving it and will definitely be coming back to this blog often, especially as I learn it all.

    Thank you for your wisdom and love during this time. : ) Keep Living Large!
