Beat The Odds...

Odds are most people will gain weight during the holiday season. In fact, it's been reported that many people will gain 6 - 13 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day.

Holidays parties, get-togethers with friends and family, often leads to over-indulging, making "Start a diet" the number one entry on most folks New Year's Resolution List.

We don't like to think about limitations and diets during the holidays. It puts us into a deprivation frame of mind. And let's be honest....the holidays are more about indulgence than denial.

Rather than going whole hog or wallowing in restriction (and beating yourself up when you fail to limit your intake), just be mindful. Think about what you are eating and savor the moment, savor each bite. Place rather than pop those goodies into your mouth, let your taste buds take over.

We tend to over eat when we eat mindlessly. So eat whatever you want this holiday season. Do so mindfully....and you'll beat the weight gain odds.

Have a joyful holiday everyone. And remember to live a flourishing life.
