Today is as good as any to start that weight loss program you’ve always contemplated but today does have its tactical advantages. Find out how!
At the start of 2015, I made a personal resolution to loose weight for two major reasons. One, I had gained weight over the course of previous year. Two, I felt that the excess weight was affecting my daily life and work – in terms of energy levels, productivity, creativity, concentration and effectiveness. Both bothered me, so I resolved to do something. After a lot of online research and talking to people in my network for suggestions, I zeroed in on the Paleo diet. Let me confess that the diet program was very intense and I managed to lose 4 kgs in 21 days. After that I found it impossible to sustain as a working mom. So I decided to take it slow and just eat sensibly for a few days. Then came a business travel so the routine got upset. Next came festivals (no dearth of them in India) – and festival time is usually filled with celebrations around food. That was followed by work pressures. Then kids falling sick. Then some personal commitments. Then some more travel. Then more work stress. Long story short, before I realized, it was October and my weight was almost the same as what I had been during the start of 2015!
Again that bothered me. So I decided to do something about it and started a self-designed weight loss program around 2 weeks back. All it involved was:
I must confess that it was hard to start but I can already feel the difference. I feel more fresh, active and energetic when I wake up. Clothes fit me better.
But I have a lot way to go.
So I was wondering that may be 1 November is a great day to start a new weight loss program. Here’s why!

But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep”
