Do You Have “Claus-Trophobia”? The fear of looking like Santa Claus after the holidays!
If you answered, YES, don’t worry---you’re not alone. The not so merry news is that the little bit of weight we gain each year happens during the holidays. Those few pounds add up over the years. BUT, THIS YEAR COULD BE DIFFERENT!!!
Sign up for WEIGH TO GO and get a handle on your holiday consumption habits. It is a unique challenge to maintain your weight over the holidays. All you have to do is weigh in before Thanksgiving and again after New Year’s Day. In between those holidays, I’ll provide you with information, tips, and ideas on “how to” manage those behaviors that have gotten you into trouble in the past.
Challenge Yourself!!! Maintain your weight over the holidays within two pounds of your starting weight. Don’t let the holidays weigh on you all year long. Register by attending the Pre-holiday Weigh-In.
