One of my 2007 New Year's resolutions is to lose weight. Original, I know.
This year I feel a bit more confident about my chances. Why? I've been reading the Holiday Challenge series by Sally Squires.
If you're unfamiliar with the holiday challenge, it's a guide to help you stay the same weight during the holiday season of parties, restaurants and cookie-baking activities. We don't have to lose any weight; Sally just wants us to avoid gaining any.
I have to admit that I have not been following the program exactly. But that's precisely why I feel it's so effective. I've read Sally's stories, and I think about them during the week, but I have not felt as though I'm on a diet. In fact, Sally emphasizes that the Lean Plate approach is NOT a diet; it's a smart way to pay attention to how we eat. And three days before New Year's, I have not gained a single pound since Thanksgiving. (I'm patting myself on the back here.)
If you're anxious about your weight, check out these stories. The approach aims to give us all the confidence that we can improve our eating habits and head into the new year with a realistic strategy.
