Some insurance companies have deals with health clubs to offer reduced membership rates. You may want to check this out. I know that Medical Mutual does this through a website called globalfit. You can always ask about it at work to see if your employer or health insurance company does this. Do your best to maintain over the holidays. I've been making sure that I do not cheat AT ALL in the weeks leading up to Christmas so that if I do cheat on Christmas it won't have been a total carb free for all. Be strong, you can do it!!
