With all of the holiday feasts, treats, and parties, it is easy to gain weight. For the next couple months, instead of trying to lose weight, focus on maintaining your weight. This will allow you to indulge in that piece of pumpkin pie or an extra helping of stuffing. Trying to lose weight during the holidays can lead to a feeling of deprivation, which makes it easy to ditch weight loss efforts and then promise to start up again after the holidays. By then, you may have already gained several pounds. By focusing solely on maintaining your weight during the holidays, you are more likely to lose weight successfully in the long run.
