Welcome to First Place 4 Health (FP4H)
*** NEXT SESSION: fall 2013 ***
Bible Study:   tbd
(check back for details coming soon!)

During the next 12 week session, we will not be having "physical" weekly meetings, rather
we will be discussing the Bible Study and FP4H principles
via a closed facebook group.

"Motivated to Wellness" will give you hope and encouragement to keep pressing toward your goals of living a healthy, balanced life.   Whenever you take steps to make a change in your life (or even continue on the path to balanced living that you've already begun), you WILL be met w/opposition and challenges that will attempt to derail your efforts.   Instead of grasping the full life that Jesus intends you to have, you will be tempted to give in to discouragement & just quit.   However, it is at these times that you need to draw on the principles of Scripture to fill you with hope and enable you to continue pursuing your goals of physical and spiritual fitness.
"Motivated to Wellness" will guide you through these principles and
help you follow the course that God has set for your life!

More about First Place 4 Health (FP4H):
FP4H is a Christ-centered health program that teaches good nutrition & healthy living by focusing on four essentials: the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual! Through this program and Bible study, you will discover the secrets to Balanced Healthy Living!

Learn how God calls Christians to be physically fit, and understand the positive effect good nutrition and exercise have on our emotions and spirit!. That's First Place 4 Health! Although weight management is often a motivation for joining a First Place group, the focus is not just on the body, or on the number on the scale. That's a crucial difference between this program and other health management programs. By applying disciplines that affect the whole person (body, mind, heart and spirit) you will not only experience physical health but will also experience total health; HEALTH FOR LIFE!!
The FP4H nutrition plan is based on the the latest "Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The USDA food guide provides suggested amounts of food to consume from the basic food groups (fruits, vegetables, grains, milk, meat & beans, and healthy oils) based on our calorie range. You can go to the site to obtain a calorie range, or refer to your FP4H Member Guide for the range suggested for healthy weight loss!
* Please always check with your doctor before drastically changing your diet or significantly decreasing your calorie intake.
