Man it is a really hard time of year just trying to stay on a steady weight when all the food you eat makes you want to pack it on and the exercise never seems to be enough! You might take in less but still it seems as though weight won't go all of the sudden! Anyone else feeling the Holiday pressure?

I know exactly what you mean.
And it's worst knowing how much you ate and seeing that being on the treadmill for 20 minutes has only burned 150 calorie!!!

it's like what the point?!?! =]

I think we all get hungrier in winter. Probably as old as humankind, this need to eat more in cold weather to keep warm. We seem to lay down more fat too, again probably because in days of yore food was scarce in winter and we had to conserve energy to see us through 'til spring.

Nowadays we have supermarkets! And takeaways. And sit-down jobs. And television.

I always find it harder to eat less and exercise more over the Christmas period.

I think giving 2-3 days of eating what you want...sensibly of course IE: one piece of pumpkin pie over the holday (not 1 piece a day)... makes it easier to return to eating sensibly... You try to deny yourself Thanksgiving & Christmas dinner, you set yourself up to fail...you will be miserable....& remember miserable is the root word of miser....so don't be miserly, enjoy the holidays....in moderation...even if you don't lose...shoot to maintain!

Yep! It's called "Winter fat" lol. Very Happy What I like to do is not deny myself treats every now & then, because if you do you just end up overeating later on (which I found out the hard way). I'm still sticking to my diet, I'm just going to let myself enjoy some holiday treats whenever I feel like it. Smile
