It’s hard! In order to lose weight the dieter needs to take the fat and burn it. They need to hold themselves back from the delicacies at an event. To lose weight a person needs to burn fat. The Torah teaches us that when we bring a Sacrifice to G-d it is to assist us in making amends for a mistake that we made.

The sacrifice must be brought by day, however the fats may be burnt a whole night. The lesson the Torah is teaching us is that we may enjoy different things in life. But although the sacrifice must be brought by day when we are “in touch” with our spirituality, the fats and “enjoyment” can be burnt even by night when we are not inspired.

It is said that the true secret to weight loss is to make small changes each and every day and you'll slowly (but surely) lose those extra pounds. The key is to forget about instant results and settle in for the long run.

The true way to God gain is not about the enjoyment (although at Chabad Jewish Center we make it fun and enjoyable), it's about doing what we need to do - helping a neighbor, learning Torah or any other mitzvah in order to connect to God and be connected not because we enjoy it. So make small changes each and every day and you'll slowly (but surely) gain that extra connection.The key is to forget about instant results and settle in for the long run.

Have a wonderful Shabbos!

Rabbi Kushi Schusterman
