This week I want to discuss a topic very near to my heart. WAVES for Weight LossSM. Just a month ago, the site went live just before the first annual Women’s Health Expo at House of Prayer Church in Blairsville, GA. For those of you that don’t know this about me, I have lost just around a 100lbs. and my story is one of the success stories shared on the site. Having went on this journey myself, I have a desire to help others face their struggles with weight loss and reach their goals. I used the WAVES motto and I found it to be easy to remember and easy to live by:
W ~ Water
A ~ Attitude
V ~ Veggies
E ~ Exercise
S ~ Support
The site is huge. It has a lot of features integrated into it that may not be obvious at first. There are articles under each of the main sections: Water, Attitude, Veggies, Exercise and Support as well Tips and Tricks and Measure. These articles help individuals learn how to eat healthy and be healthy the rest of their life! The site also has a forum for users to seek support and give it.
In addition, I added a feature where other companies can help support the cause and the top sponsors get banner ads on the site (You’ll notice my company is one of them). We also did an easy to use toolbar at the top with a search feature to help users find just the information they need and another option to login.
The sidebars vary from page to page and include anything from the daily scripture, ads (to keep the site free), links to contests, new post links, forums topics and more. They also include links to all of the social sites this company is part of like Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
In the footer of the site, there is numerous links to other pages and information, including a page that has a link to sign-up for the newsletter. Please take a moment to check out the site and find out more about this great program. Then, let us know what you think.
