     Holiday time can be a bit crazy and of course staying healthy during that time can be difficult. For me, the hardest part is finding the time to eat every two hours. I NEVER thought this would be my biggest issue! Crazy, right? So it is something I am working to improve on so I can keep my body in fat burning mode. With Optavia, I know it is so important to maintain that consistency. 
      With New Years approaching, I have been thinking about all of the past years that my resolution was always to get healthy and it never worked. This year, I am well on my way and I feel amazing. Typically, this was the time that I would feel that "holiday hangover" from stuffing myself for days on end. Enjoying all of the cookies, beer and family dinners in the previous weeks. I knew that with upcoming New Year, I would convince myself all of my old habits would be a thing of the past. I was going to wake up before the kids to get a run in, avoid the bakery aisle at the grocery, and say no when the waitress asked if I wanted dessert.  I was going to get it all together in the new year....but it never happened. This year, I already have it together and I feel so good about it.

     It has officially been FIVE WEEKS since I decided to change things up and get healthy. I know January 1 is right around the corner, so it is time to start thinking about those New Year's resolutions, right? For many of us, that same old resolution is always get healthy this year or say goodbye to those extra pounds I am toting around. It lasts for a couple of days or maybe a week and then we see a plate of french fries or a piece of cake that we just have to have. This year, I have a great jump start on my resolution and I am not looking back. I would love if you joined me too

      It has been four weeks since I started this journey and the best result? I feel amazing and I am down TEN pounds from where I started. If you would have told me this time last month that it was possible to loose that kind of weight eating SIX times a day, I never would have believed you. However, it is completely possible with Optavia. 
     I started a month ago with the encouragement of my health coach, Lesley. One of the best benefits of the Optavia program is that you get access to a free health coach. This person is there to help you along on your journey, as little or as much as you wish. For the past four weeks, Lesley has been there to cheer me on and give me ideas when I needed them. She has shared recipes, listened to my ideas, and cheered me on with every pound I lost.
