Weight Loss Coach Helps People Get in Shape From the Inside Out

Stacey Grieve of Why Are You Weighting in Toronto, On, Canada

Why Are You Weighting (WAYW) was started to help people with weight issues get to, and address the reasons behind their compulsion to overeat. Unlike dieting, which only addresses the symptom of the problem, which is the the weight, WAYW gets to the causative factors and neutralizes those. This approach removes the need to overeat, and leads to permanent weight reduction, along with improved self-esteem, increased self-awareness, and decreased stress and anxiety around food.

WAYW sells information in the form of a book called “Why Are You Weighting? It’s Not The Food That’s Making You Fat!” (Stacey Grieve is the author.) The book is available in paperback, e-book and audiobook formats.
And for those that want more help than a d-i-y book can offer, there is also the Triumph! Weight Coaching Program, which expands on, and adds to the concepts in the book. The program is run in small-groups, with a maximum 10 people per group, and uses an interactive conference call format, facilitated by Stacey herself.

Typical book purchasers and Triumph! enrollees are women, age 35-50, who have not been successful with their weight management through dieting and exercise alone. Many of these women have shed and then regained the same pounds over and over again, and often they find themselves thinking “I am never going to be able to get this weight off.”

Profit is earned through book sales, site memberships and Triumph! Weight Coaching enrollments. Addtional profit is earned through Stacey being hired for speaking engagements.

WAYW was pre-launched Spring 08 and then officially launched Fall 08.
Stacey Grieve is the founder and continues to be the driving force behind WAYW. Prior to WAYW, Stacey worked in health care as a Registered Massage Therapist and was the owner/operator of a busy complimentary health clinic in downtown Toronto. It was during this time that Stacey was finally able to overcome a life-long struggle with her own weight, which at its worst had her weighing in at 306 lbs.

By delving into herself, and learning about what triggered her compulsion to overeat, Stacey was able to shed 135 lbs which she has easily kept off now for over 6 years. She wrote the book  “Why Are You Weighting?” and started the website in order to share what she had learned that allowed her to be successful. Given that 95% of dieters fail to keep the weight off for more than a year, Stacey knew there were people out there who were looking for this information.

Feedback from the readers of the book and the Triumph! enrollees has been incredible as  these people come to understand that they need to lose the baggage to lose the weight. WAYW, although a young company, is changing the face of the weight loss industry, one person and one pound at a time!

    I’ve always felt that the whole issue of weight loss was much more a mental thing than a counting carbs and exercise thing, although I know those are both real important. Thanks for the great advice and Stacey’s story. Julian

  3. weight loss and fat loss says:

    Physical activity without accompanying dietary changes have proved to be an ineffective way to lose weight, since there is often only seen a weight loss of 100-200 g per week. Most of the overweight, which need to lose weight the most, is also, paradoxically, those who are least able to increase physical activity and lose weight this way. For those who find it difficult to be physically active to be added to all physical activity is better than nothing and the more the better. The idea is to find the activities you like and can physically cope with the exercise. The current recommendations say 30 minutes a day which may well accumulate to 3 times 10 minutes, moderate to hard physical activity. This is considered a minimum if you want full benefits of the health benefits of physical exercise. There are health benefits associated with physical activity independent of weight loss. The health benefits are in addition to the weight inter alia effect on insulin resistance, psyche and development of diseases. Physical activity can increase blood volume, glycogen depots and muscle mass and thus obscure a concomitant loss of fat. This is described and elaborated in the article “Interaction between exercise and weight.”

  4. I’ve always been fascinated about the different ways people have created to achieve one goal, the goal of weight loss. For me, it all starts with the food you eat. I filled out this survey to help out in weight loss program research — about the dieting and nutrition habits of people. For the love of weight loss, check this survey out! http://bit.ly/4TttX

  6. Thanks for a great post, it’s truly inspiring to hear other women talk about the way they feel about these things. I struggle with the scale, and gain inspiration and motivation from listen to what other women are going through, and how they achieved thier goals.
