Facing the Truth

Have you ever been witness to the release of a Chinese lantern?  I experienced it in person  over the summer with my wife’s family and it was an absolute thing of beauty.

When I started Bright Line Eating back in August 2017, I wanted what the tagline promised – “Happy, Thin, and Free” (http://brightlineeating.com).  I worked the program and got to my goal weight in January 2018.  For two months, I maintained my weight. If anything, I was continuing to slowly lose more weight!  Unfortunately, even after my weight-loss success, freedom was eluding me.  It was time for me to figure out why!

What is a picture worth?

Too busy to read this now or want to save it for later?

I took to Instagram a few weeks ago as a way to share what I’ve been eating on my food plan and to get ideas and inspiration.  I found that AND I also learned an important lesson.

There are a lot of people getting introduced to Bright Line Eating (www.brightlineeating.com) and there are more and more users on IG everyday sharing beautifully composed photos of tasty looking food.  Check out #brightlineeating and #brightlinebites if you are curious.  Some of the pictures look too good to eat.
