Goals for the holiday season:
- keep it simple, focus on taking healthy steps to not gain weight during the holidays.
-Use a smaller plate! Makes you feel as if you have a ton of food but, you really didn't over indulge.
-Wear tight jeans: if you wear tighter jeans you are not as likely to go back for seconds.
-Carry something in your hands when visiting with family and friends. If you have something in your hands, people are less likely to offer you snacks or food.
-Engage in a conversation with people.
