I think if I have one more cookie, I’ll turn into one of the Keebler elves! Having said that however, let me just say I have enjoyed the Holiday season immensely and am looking forward to New Years celebrations with friends, family and…..wait for it…..food!
If you’re like me, while you’re appreciative of all the beautiful looking tasty dishes and hard work that everyone has put into their favorite wonderful Holiday foods, you’re probably also tired of feeling bloated and slightly overwhelmed by the constant onslaught of delicious eating and ongoing temptations.
Partaking in all that wonderful food can leave you feeling a little sluggish but the upside is, this is the time of year when we typically start to feel more motivated - motivated to ‘lose weight’ and to really start to eat well.
You know how it goes. All that bargaining you do with yourself. You’ll eat right starting today, then you only have New Year’s Eve (maybe New Year’s Day) to get through and THEN you’ll start eating right or dieting at the beginning of the year.
Hey, don’t worry about it, we all do that. The ‘January 2nd’ diet is nothing new.
You have to change the way you think about dieting before your dieting behaviors will change.
This is a perfect time to start thinking about your weight loss goals and building your skills to help you lose those first 5 pounds!
