Well, over the summer, I've managed to lose 20 pounds by dieting and exercising. With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, I know I'll be going to a few dinners. I also know that with cold and inclimate weather, exercise will be an issue as well. So, I was wondering, what would be a good strategy for conquering these holiday meals and not gain 15 pounds from them? Any exercise tips would be helpful as well.
So far, I've done these things:
~Cut out most soda to around 1 can a day
~Drink 3-5 bottles of cold water everyday (I put propel in it if I feel I need flavor)
~Try to keep myself entertained so I won't eat out of boredom
~Try to be stress-free so I don't go back to being an 'emotional eater', and so I won't "sleep eat".
~Take Vitamins (sometimes I tend to forget though)
~Eat home-cooked meals more often
~Eating fast food less
I'm not sure what else I could do, honestly. ^^;; That's why I need your help. I don't want to get back to what I used to weigh. Being healthy and getting to a healthier weight is what I really want to accomplish. Not to be skinny.
