On tonight's show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy learn how to stay motivated in order to lose weight and achieve all of your goals. Donna Krech, creator of the Donna Krech Connection shared her 7 reasons people lose their motivation and what they can do to get back on track. The number one reason was that people get distracted, they lose focus. And in order to stay focused you have to figure out your "Big Why" Why are you really trying to lose weight - she says it's probably not what you think. It's not to fit into your college clothes or get to your high school weight. You're going to have to dig deeper than that.
Donna is a successful entrepreneur, speaker and published author
with over 25 years in the weight loss and fitness industries. She truly has lived the American Dream AND is an expert in teaching others to do the
same. She has shared the stage with motivational speakers like Jim Rohn,
Brian Tracy…etc. These are people she looked up to and admired when she was struggling and no she shares the stage with them at events.
We also had on Susan Bellone and Matt Jones. These two inspirational people have teamed up to help feed the hungry. Susan started Potatoes for Pounds where she has donated 10 pounds of potatoes for every pound she has lost. And she is encouraging others to follow her lead. Matt is a gallery owner who does events and encourages his patrons to donate potatoes and other food as their ticket into his events. He has been doing this for years and has donated hundreds of thousands of pounds of food to food banks. These two are encouraging everyone to get involved start a challenge in your community.

Ellen Barrett also joined us to discuss her new exercise dvd project. Ellen has been called the country's best fitness instructor by Self magazine. She encourages women to Sweat Glamorously. She has targetted modern workouts for modern women. In additon to working with Hollywood's hottest stars like Christina Ricci, Ellen has carved out a huge following of exercise dvd lovers with an impressive library of her work. Check out her The Studio series: Yogini Workout, Fat Burning Fusion and Slim Sculpt. For more about Ellen please go to her website www.ellenbarrett.com
And we closed the show with Pam Vetter, a celebrant from Los Angeles. For those not in the know a celebrant helps families heal with uplifting funerals. PAm has done celebrity funerals like Richard Pryor's but spends most of her time helping regular folks go out in a way that really celebrates their life instead of a typical sad preachy service from a religious leader who in some cases barely knows the departed. Funeral's don't have to be a buzz kill they can really be meaningful, fun and inspirational. Visit Pam online at www.thefunerallady.com or www.celebrantpam.com

Remember we are now on every morning in Michigan. On radio station WKNW. They asked us to create a Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy "Wellness Minute." So now a new Wellness Minute runs on that station each morning at around 7:40. Each Wellness Minute features the doctor and I going over 5 of his best tips on a given wellness subject like: losing weight, getting in shape, living a healthy lifestyle, etc. Now these Wellness Minutes are available online. If you have a favorite radio station that you think would benefit from our Wellness Minutes send them an email telling them about it and who knows maybe you can hear us everyday too.
Also once again, I need you to please do me a favor. My kid Max has been doing a radio show called "Kid Power Radio" for awhile now and you should check it out. Tiffany from The Daily Candy called his family friendly radio show "Hilarious!" This is a great show for your kids. It is kind of like a kids version of David Spade's "Showbiz Show" on Comedy Central or Entertainment Tonight mixed in with a little Wayne's World. Max recaps the week in entertainment and gives his take and review of what he liked and didn't like on TV, at the movies, video games, in books and in music and even restaurant reviews. Please go to his site and download the show for your kid. He had a big show recently he interviewed Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. And if your kid sends Max an email he'll read it on the air next week. The show can be found at www.kidpowerradio.com and you can email Max at RadioStarMax at Yahoo.com. He has gotten emails from kids from England, Australia, China and even the US. Your encouragement is greatly appreciated. Thanks to you his show is rocketing up the charts!!!
