November and December can be THE most difficult months to lose weight, maintain weight and just stay healthy.
We begin by eating leftover Halloween candy.
Then we start trying recipes for Thanksgiving, and baking ahead for the family get together.
Then we start baking "gifts" to give away for Christmas presents.
Then we find that everywhere we go, offices are full of seasonal treats, ours for the tasting.
You may be eating out more often, having company staying with you and baking and cooking for them.
You've probably come a long way since last year's holiday celebrations. Don't lose it all now. Don't give up the rewards of all your hard work, planning and discipline.
I'm preaching to myself here, really. Because I need to hear it, need to say it, need to write it. Need to heed it!
So here is the warning sign of the times.
CAUTION! HOLIDAY WEIGHT GAIN AHEAD. MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH! AND SELF-ESTEEM!
