#Active365 Goes Public!

>> Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Here's a chance to get motivated to stick with those New Year's resolutions you're trying to keep.

Lisa Taylor, a Calgary high school teacher (and, I'm proud to say, my amazing sister), launched a Twitter initiative #active365 to help her phys ed students feel inspired to engage in daily physical activity.  When they get active, they take a picture and post it on Twitter - this gets their classmates hyped about being active, stimulates some friendly competition - and Miss Taylor even gives them bonus marks towards their report card!

We are now taking #active365 outside of gym class and to the general public!  Here's your chance to get friends, family, and work colleagues involved and see who can rack up the most #active365 tweets each week, each month, and for all of 2016.  Being #active365 will mean different things to different people - it can mean walking to work or school instead of using a car or bus; taking the stairs instead of the elevator; taking your kids for a swim in the local pool; going to the gym; ice skating; starting a new exercise class... use your imagination!  You can choose to tweet with or without a picture, but be sure to describe what you did!

So start racking up those bonus marks to your health - let's tweet up #active365 and motivate each other every day of the year!

I would love to know when my readers are Tweeting at #active365 - my Twitter handle is @drsuepedersen - please add it to your Tweet so I can cheer you on!

Important note: Be sure to discuss with your doctor before starting any new activity or exercise program.

I am excited that you have arrived at my site, and I hope you are too - consider this the first step towards a Healthier New You!! As a medical doctor, Endocrinologist, and obesity specialist, I am absolutely passionate about helping people with weight management. Though there is certainly no magic cure for obesity, there IS a successful treatment plan out there for you - it is all about understanding the elements that contribute to your personal weight struggle, and then finding the treatment plan that suits your needs and your lifestyle. The way to finding your personal solution is to learn as much as you can about obesity: how our toxic environment has shaped us into an overweight society; the diversity of contributors to obesity; and what the treatment options out there are really all about. Knowledge Is Power!!

Are you ready to change your life? Let's begin our journey together, towards a healthier, happier you!!
