Tip #24: Maintain, Not Gain

11 Nov

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.

    So true, you have to be realistic and don’t limit yourself to impossible situations. You tend to feel more deprived depressed and conscious if you force yourself to lose weight in the winter. Try to just be healthy and make healthier choices the rest will follow.
    Great advice.

    I agree because these times of years make it extremely difficult to get burning, but if you make sound food choices, and still workout at the same time, the weight will stay right where it needs to be; thanks for the tips for the holiday season:))
