By Carol L. Doyel –

I developed a program called M.O.V.E. that covers 4 powerful principles to help you lose weight, get fit and change your life! For me it all started back in 2009-2010, when I found myself at my heaviest weight and in a funk. It might not have seemed like I had a significant weight problem, but according to weight charts and a biometric test I took, I was considered obese (20 or more pounds overweight for my age and height).

That shocked me – so I made a decision in April 2010 to start exercising on a regular basis. I began walking laps around our block, and then moved to a nearby track. I started walking for short periods of time a couple of times a day. As I became more motivated I started to sprint for 1-3 minutes interspersed with walking, which eventually led to running a lap, then two, and overtime I worked up to running 3-4 miles at a time.

I also followed a low sugar, low carb diet and within a year I lost 22 pounds (See After Photo Top Right Taken Aug. 2014). But the greatest change I experienced was not necessarily the weight I loss, but my attitude, mental clarity, and enthusiasm which all increased significantly. It was during that time that I launched my online women’s magazine, LivingBetter50.com. I was so inspired and had such a sense of vitality that the creative ideas seemed to flow. And I had the energy to actually do the things that I wanted to do.

I’ve always known how important exercise is and how living a healthy life can extend and improve the quality of your life, but what I discovered is that exercise and wellness effects every area of our life – and is a key component to our overall success. Just as the Bible states in 3 John 1:2: “Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.” This is God’s desire and design for us as believers of the Gospel – To prosper and experience divine health, just as our soul prospers.

So I decided to write a little book about the four principles that I applied in my own life; a couple of them are methods I have used for many years to accomplish my personal dreams and goals.

In my book I cover the four principles of M.O.V.E. as well as the importance of moving more, which is critical to overall vitality. The acronym M.O.V.E. is based on principals that most diet books, and programs do not include or cover. These are significant, yet simple principles that can help you succeed at not only losing weight and getting fit, but achieving any goals that you set your mind and heart to.

Get up put on something comfortable to wear and your walking shoes, take a pad and pen (invest in a small journal that is special and that you can write down your life goals and dreams), get in your car if you need to, drive to a beautiful spot, take a looooong walk, and then sit down and write down your dreams and goals.

The key is to have a BIG “why” and to get motivated and stay motivated, which I cover in by book “Lose Weight, Get Fit & Change Your Life- With 4 Powerful Principles.”
