Yup, as quickly as the holiday decorations go up, so do our fears about how much weight we’re going to gain during the festivities. It’s really not surprising considering how much fat talk goes on at this time. While so many magazines adorn their covers with pictures of yummy, holiday food and recipes, there are even more that fill their pages with expert advice on how to get rid of the calories and fat grams we’ve ingested if we indulge in any.

We need to enjoy more and worry less.

Yes, people do tend to eat more during the holidays, but the last thing you want to do after that happens is throw yourself onto a restrictive diet. Believe it or not, the best thing to do is to just return to your normal eating habits. Our bodies know where they like to be and if we treat them with kindness and respect by being physically active and nourishing them in a healthy, BALANCED way, they will return to a weight that is comfortable for us.

Panicking about the “damage” we’ve done will only increase anxiety and increased anxiety can lead to, you guess it, WEIGHT GAIN!

SO PLEASE try to enjoy the people you’re with, the blessings you have and the food you’re eating because life is too short to spend it chained to a scale.
