Losing weight before Christmas!

Anyone with me on this? I always get me and my husband and son new clothes for Christmas. Not really as gifts but because we need them and I'm wanting SOO bad to go down a pant size or two! It's just so hard to diet this time of year!! Haha.. I hate holiday seasons sometimes! :)

  • I would start with simple changes.
    DonÒ€ℒt buy junk food
    Walk, or do other exercise, for at least 20 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week.
    Make sure that you are drinking enough water, at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    Eat an apple or big pile of veggies before meals.
    Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, in at least 3 different colors.
    Eat 6-7 servings of whole grains a day.
    Eat at least two servings of legumes a day.
    Cut way back on meat and dairy.
