As the holidays draw closer, those of us who struggle with our weight begin to stress out! The next two months are nothing but company parties, family dinners, friendly get-togethers and more. With all these "celebrations" comes the on slaught of food
buffets, grandmotherly recipes, and sous chef creations! I recently lost 55 pounds and then put some back on. I have worked hard to keep my weight at a safe and healthy range. And I get to be honest, nothing in this world scares me more than the next two
months. Showing my ability to restrain is impossible with cran-apple cobbler, homemade triple chocolate truffle pie, filet mignon sauteed in a balsamic butter gravy. So, I have come to you with my mantra of the season, "You don't diet during the Holidays!".
Now before Jillian Michaels knocks at my door to show me her latest in excersise tortures, that doesn't mean go wild. I have come to realize the more I worry how much weight I am going to gain in the next two months, I find solice in eating. I start to over
compensate eating the food, I know, is not going to keep the weight off. So what's a girl to do? "You don't diet during the Holidays, you keep your portions small, you push up the calorie burning excersises of your choice and you lay off freaking out for
the next two months." I take some of my favorite and most devilish recipes and re-work them to reduce the fats and calories. Love the sour cream! Use the greek yogurt. Love the pan fried parmesan crusted pork tenderloin! Use the olive oil, not the vegetable
oil. There are ways to love the next two months, without stressing out about the food aspect of it. Happy Holidays!
