As we happily head out to party, let’s remember to read through, ingest, and practice the 10 Commandments of Holiday Weight Loss graciously and generously presented to us by Our Lady of Weight Loss, the patron saint of permanent weight removal! She who guided me to my 50 pounds permanent weight loss!
Be kind, loving and forgiving to yourself, first and foremost – always.
Eat something before the party. A salad, some fruit, even an egg will do. And drink up–plenty of water and/or seltzer.
Get away from the food. Why torture yourself? Socialize – have a fun conversation! (see How to Have a Fun Conversation)
Fill up your plate with Our Lady of Weight Loss approved foods, and leave a little space for your favorite treat. Too much denial isn’t a good thing.
Quick, fast – before you change your mind. Give the candy, the cakes, the food away.
6. Thou shalt keep thy hands busy.
Try knitting, crocheting, cutting & pasting, needlepoint, draw, write – anything to keep your hands (and mind) busy. Give your creations as gifts!
7. Thou shalt stay clear of sweat pants.
Wear snug clothing. No room for expansion, no sweats please!
Ask Santa for a pedometer for Christmas. And then use it!
and map out all the restrooms in thy village. Drink up – water that is.
Your neighbor’s plate is none of your business.
