Okay!! It’s the holidays and a time to celebrate with family and friends. Unfortunately, for many it also becomes a time for over-eating and weight gain. Statistics tell us that the average American gains between 7-10 pounds during the holiday season. Then after giving in to the temptations and gaining the weight most Americans maintain that extra weight and will add on additional pounds the following season. Now I am not asking you to diet. In fact, I can’t stand them. Just take time for yourself. Holiday time is stressful for many people. Be sure to take time to relax and enjoy it. Set limits, plan, eat well, and most of all keep it simple and fun.
