Have you heard of the Prism Diet? It is a Christian weight-loss program, and my church offers classes pretty much year round so that you can have a support group to do it with.
I have been going back and forth for a couple of months about whether I wanted to join or not. It is pretty intense for the first six weeks, and I didn't know if I could handle it. However, I know it's going to go right along with what my doctor/nutritionist is going to have me do. Plus, I just found out that one of my friends is going to start the class too, so I thought I might as well just go for it since I'll have a support buddy!
The Prism Diet is a 24-week program divided into 4 phases. The first phase is the most intense, because the diet is very restricted. So hopefully if I can make it through that part, the rest will be easier!
The reason I decided to join was because, although I'm not extremely overweight (don't get me wrong, I could still stand to lose about 10 or 15 lbs) I am just not healthy! I know eating right is going to change that, and hopefully get rid of a lot of my health problems.
Another reason is that I want my family to be healthy. If we get healthy eating habits in place now, I feel like that will be a great gift we can give our kids someday too.
So for me, I'm looking at this more as a lifestyle change than a "diet." I am excited about it! I thought it would be fun to test out some of the healthy, "Prism-friendly" recipes I've found on Pinterest, and if they're good, I'll share them here.
It seems like most of my posts lately have been health-related, but I'm excited about this, and it really is a big part of my life right now!
