There’s way too much information.
What’s needed is transformation,

Oct meeting follow-up HEALTH, NUTRITION, DIET Support & Accountability Team

Greetings!  This is a Follow-Up to the October meeting HEALTH, NUTRITION, DIET Support & Accountability Team

If you did not go to the meeting, you are welcome to join in, participate and contribute—questions, answers, comments; input, ideas or suggestions as if you did.

Thanks to all of you who came.  I am excited about the discussion that we had, and that we have a core, nucleus or start of a “village” to raise our health, nutrition, diet to what we want, need it to be.  I added ones to the email that could not attend, but wanted to.  People can be added anytime.  See 6 below.   

Post or reply all, and answer or contribute to any of 1-6 that you would like.  It doesn’t have to be all of them.   

1 Anything missing or that you would add, change or correct in the October meeting notes below. 

2 As you look at the Questionnaire, is there any other input you would like to provide?

3 What are one or two takeaways from the meeting; something you liked, learned or realized?

4 As a result of the meeting, what is one change, improvement or break-through you want, need to make?

5 How we can make real, significant change is utilizing powerful, effective, best-practice change agents like these:

a Food, drink, diet tracking, chart and diary/journal Food-diary vertex;

b Action plan;

c Affirmations, visualizations;

d Deep breathing, breath techniques;

e 5 whys, root cause analysis;

f Need, gap analysis and closure;

g Spiritual incubation;

h Inner power manifestation/actualization;

i Another, other you would add.

We can take care of 1-4 first and then consider 5.  1 Notes and 2 Questionnaire determine, are the basis, foundation for agendas, panels and the ongoing discussion, support and accountability. 

6 Who else would you add to the Team that want, need their health changed, strengthened or improved, and who could be a key part of your support and accountability. 

They could complete the Questionnaire so the HEALTH, NUTRITION, DIET Support & Accountability Team can serve them, be what they need as well. 

If you have any questions, requests, contact me, Randy 847 809-4821,
