...and I'm not planning on gaining weight. Is it alright to plan on gaining weight though? I heard on the radio several times lately that the average American gains 5-10 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year's. That seems like a lot, but I'm sure adding a few cookies here and there, some fruitcake, eggnog, etc., the calories add up much more than you can exercise them off. My plan is to track diligently while I'm at home, but for the Christmas Eve/Christmas Day feasting, I will try to make the "better" choices, but no worry about tracking points. I want to enjoy without overindulging.
But is it OK to plan for a gain? I believe it is. If I want to enjoy the holidays without worrying about everything that goes in my piehole, then I probably already am planning for a gain. I know what to do to combat a gain and I just don't want to have to worry about one more thing this holiday season. Happy Holidays and may your weight gain be planned!!
