Oh yeah, here they come again, the holidays! It's funny because it is a time we all look forward to and yet there is still this dread... the dread of weeks of overeating and the unavoidable weight gain.
I've always been one to stand out in a crowd. Not because I'm beautiful or tall or loud or all that interesting, but because I'm fat. At times, I've been the widest person in the room.
Eating sensibly, taking less of everything, and skipping second helpings are sure ways to begin. “Put a knife in your throat if given to gluttony,” says the Book of Proverbs. A person who leaves the table a little hungry need never fear overweight.
It's frustrating when something doesn't work - especially something as personal as weight loss. There's nothing more heartbreaking than doing everything you know that is "right" and then seeing no progress on the scale. But it doesn't have to be that way.
