I think most of you can relate to weight loss and all of its related struggles. Personally, this has been a big struggle for me for pretty much as long as I can remember. I am not among the few lucky people who can eat what I want and not see said calories in my clothes, or around my waist. It’s been a struggle for forever, but it’s been that much tougher since I started this blog.
You might remember that I lost some weight in the summer and that I was really proud of that accomplishment. You see, I fought tooth and nail for every bit of that weight loss. I wasn’t done then. I have more weight to lose. And hard as I tried, motivated as I have been, I haven’t been successful enough. It’s been a huge struggle just to maintain that weight loss.
And now it’s post chanukah, and I am sure many of you can relate to my desperation. We all know the famous quote by Albert Einstein: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and hoping for different results.” Well my dieting plan for the last couple of years has been the definition of insanity. It hasn’t worked, and with my life taking the direction that it has, it probably won’t. I needed something different.
I need a Fresh Start.
Enter Fresh Start and Kosher Diet Plans.Com. The diet is all about eating what you love, and doing around your busy lifestyle. It’s about portion control, and taking control of your eating. It’s got a structure that I’ve been lacking, but at the same time, it allows me to have a great degree of flexibility around my busy schedule, my Shabbat and holiday schedule, and any other things going on in my life. It’s easy to sign up for the program, and it’s easy to customize the program for my needs.
So I will be going on a weight loss journey with Start Fresh, and sharing my experiences here. My weight loss. (Hopefully not my weight gains!) What I struggled with. What I found helpful. Food I am eating. Food I am not eating. It’s going to be real, and I hope you’ll join me. I’ll be sharing an update post every sunday, so make sure to stop by for my progress – and to cheer me on! It’s going to be a real and honest discussion about weight loss and dieting. Hopefully, there will be encouragement for you too!
