I was reading a diet email newsletter I subscribe to and they had an article about how Americans tend to gain 5 pounds on average over the holiday season! So instead of saying on Jan 1, 2003 "boy all that overeating wasnt worth it and now I have xx amount of extra pounds to lose" what are you going to do to avoid this?
I think if you plan ahead maybe it wont be so hard to stick to it!
One thing I will do (to get the list started) is to not bake cookies this year. I say its for friends and family but end up "sampling" way too many. Also we have lots left over just tempting me until they are gone. So out of sight-out of mind for me, hopefully!
what are your plans to avoid the holiday 5+ pounds?
