Positive approach to planning for the new year

I thought this was a refreshing change from the usual! Link here.

weight loss approach that is working for me

Between the IVF drugs and not wanting to go on strict diets due to not wanting to have it affect my fertility, and being married to a man who is way too interested in food, I've gained some weight the past few years and not been able to figure out how to get rid of it.

Recently started using the Rise app, which is a really great application of mobile technology.  You take photos of your food and a nutritionist comments on them. You get three months of it for less than what one session with a nutritionist would cost you.

Between being more careful about what you eat because you know you have to report it, and helpful tips from the nutritionist, it really works -- I have lost 5 pounds so far and am going into the usual January resolution period feeling optimistic!

If you sign up with the referral code P75R21 or this link, you can get your first week free.

This New York Times article gives a pretty accurate idea of what it's like working with the app.
