I recently began Partners for Healthier Weight, a weight management clinic located in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It involves 6 months of active weight loss followed by 6 months of weight management. In the active weight loss period, I will be on a OptiFast liquid diet for 3 months. The Program also encourages journaling for emotional relief, dietary tracking, goal setting and tracking, as well as documentation. This year will be one where I experiment and try new techniques and skills in order to think about myself, relationships, eating, food, emotions, etc… differently, which is not exactly an easy thing to do.
