Debut! Blogging About Losing Weight Carnival

Debut Edition
Blogging About Losing Weight Carnival #1

Now that I'm dieting, with
Start Fresh kosher weight loss diet, food is on my mind. But more than that, I'd like to help and encourage people to lose weight, so I decided to start this blog carnival.

The Blogging About Losing Weight Carnival is a monthly blog carnival which includes blog posts about weight loss. I'm most interested in people's personal stories, the "highs and lows" puns and all. I know that I can't keep out the commercial posts, since most weight loss blogs are commercial. But I'd really prefer diet posts from ordinary bloggers about the successes, failures and challenges of trying to lose weight. I'm just an ordinary wife, mother, grandmother and blogger who needs all the encouragement possible to keep on my diet.

Please blog about the "carnival" and send the link to anyone who may benefit. Low calorie, easy to prepare recipes are good, as are ways to "eat out" and not eat too much.
Send your posts for the next edition via blog carnival. Thanks

3 Secrets To Weight Loss posted at Secrets To Losing Weight, saying, "Much information has been written about weight loss, some of this information has been helpful, some not so helpful, and some just downright misleading. In this article my goal is to provide you with some tips to losing weight that have worked for me and many of my friends. The first secret to weight loss is to limit your calories after 6 p.m. Your body doesn't need those calories right before you go to sleep and won't burn them off while you sleep. If you do feel the need to eat something in the evening, make it protein; a piece of cheese or chicken breast. Don't eat carbs in the evening, especially simple carbs like white bread, rice, potatoes, cookies, etc. Follow this simple rule and you'll starting seeing weight loss very soon. To read about the other 2 secrets, go to my blog."
