Is There A Holiday Weight Loss Conspiracy?

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ November 7, 2006

Week 14 has arrived in all of its glory with the “30-in-30″ Low-Carb Weight Loss Challenge and I’ll just start off this week with my results from this past week:

So I gained three pounds this week. That’s okay, I know the weight will fluctuate as much as 10 pounds as you get closer to your goal. It happens, so you need to learn how to deal with it. The main thing is to NOT let this discourage you on your way to reaching your ultimate goal. You are doing FANTASTIC and I don’t want you to ever forget it.

Screw the scale and think about how you feel. Are you happier and feel better than you ever have in your entire life? GOOD! That’s the amazing miracle about weight loss that you can’t really explain to people who have never gone through it. The freedom from being trapped inside the body of a fat person is overwhelming. Savor the moment.

It’s November now and you know what that means–the most challenging time of the year for someone trying to lose weight is here. More diets have bitten the dust in the time between Halloween and New Year’s Day than at any other time of the year.

Why do we do that to ourselves? We know Thanksgiving and Christmas is coming at the same time every year, so what’s the big deal about these holidays that causes us to want to overeat?

I have a few theories about this and I encourage you to click here to check ‘em out to see if you agree.
