Custom Built Chiks is about women creating a positive path to change! Everyday women from all walks of life who have at least one thing in common. The desire to rebuild themselves. It’s about exchanging sedentary with action, loneliness with friendship, secrets with accountability, negative thoughts with positive ones. One habit at a time! The writings, photos and posts are created to inspire women to put their health at the top of the list. Custom Built Chiks is a Weight Loss Inspiration Circle of Support that currently meets in Wake Forest, North Carolina.  We embrace healthy lifestyle change and are not a quick fix.  The Inspiration Circle stands upon a foundation of CAKE!  Community, Accountability, Knowledge and Exercise are the 4 principles that keep us moving in a positive direction. This group eats their cake!

The community is made up of women who have 50 + pounds to lose.  The number 50 was chosen to attract those with a significant amount of pounds to shed so that the emphasis would be on changing habits, habits that packed on the weight over the years vs a woman who wants to lose a few pounds to get into a certain outfit.  Local Wellness experts are an integral part of the community as well. They consist of nutritionists, doctors, yoga instructors, women who have lost a bunch of weight and kept it off, wellness coaches, fitness instructors, personal trainers, fashionistas, Chefs and the list goes on.  Basically anyone that is willing to share their knowledge and time to be a real support to the Custom Built Chiks Community!

Accountability is key.  It’s not rocket science to know that if we make a commitment with someone (other than ourselves) we are much more likely to keep it.  We are all about making exercise appointments with each other and using different tracking tools to keep real.

Knowledge, the third pillar is an important element to our success. We use our Tuesday Night Wellness Workshop Night to listen to the Topics and interact with the wellness speaker.  Train our brain! Some you take, some you leave, but the key is exposure and customizing your plan to fit your life!

Last but certainly not least is exercise.  For many of us, exercise has been a four letter word and avoided or dabbled in sporadically. Custom  Built Chiks motivate one another to get moving. We walk together, talk together, climb together, swim together, break through barriers together.  The exercise is member driven, so you get out what you put into it.  Members are encouraged to create outings and invite the group! This gives that four letter word some spice and variety!

Not to sound cliché, but life is a journey meant to be enjoyed.  We can do this together through community, accountability, knowledge and exercise!
