Battling The Holiday Bulge! 

Hi There Buddies:

Today is Christmas so I'll try not to take up too much of 
your time with more tips that I'm sure by now you all have 
memorized.  I know many of you are preparing meals for 
family and friends and many are going to family gatherings, 
but hopefully you'll have some time to read this great 
little Christmas story I found by Laura Dawn Lewis & Roche, 
which I'm sure many of us can appreciate...


Once upon a time during a decade quite near, a fair maiden 
took part in fun festivities and holiday good cheer.  
Eggnog and candy, jellied fruit and cake, an abundance of 
goodies, each a treat too scrumptious to partake.

Closer and closer as Christmas approaches, fair maiden's 
lovely figure parts and encroaches.
Two inches to her hips and three to her waist, her thighs 
spread before her in an about face.

And what to her wondering eyes did appear, before her stood 
Lardy Girl smack in the mirror!
"Oh my, not again!" she cries and screams, "Christmas has 
exiled my waist to my dreams!"

Now what do I do?  she frets and ponders.  "To regain the 
figure I have now squandered?"
"Worry not," pronounces a voice from behind.  "Damage may 
be done but you have yet to cross the line."

As she turns to address the voice in the back, whom should 
appear?  
None other than General Practitioner, Dr. Ian Campbell, 
the Chairman of England's National Obesity Forum, standing 
ready, willing and near.

"Your BMI has hit 30, Miss Lardy my dear, settling your 
indulgences smack on your rear."
Puzzled she looks at him full of doubt, her mouth slung 
low in a hapless pout.

"Though an apple a day is recommended they say, when that 
apple is your figure, this isn't the way.
Excess weight carried around the waist you see, 
brings on obesity, cardiovascular disease and type 2 
diabetes."
"But how?" begs Miss Lardy, "Can I ever succeed, when these 
holiday treats keep chasing me?"

Dr. Campbell paused, grappling in thought, "Hmm...I see 
Miss Lardy, I see what you mean.  
A new healthy attitute is what I deem.
With exercise, choices and a treat or two, you'll soon be 
on your way to a brand new you.

But to whom should we turn for such wisdom and restrain, 
non other than BBC Dietitian & Specialist Ms. Lyndel 
Costain."
"Ms. Costain," Miss Lardy exclaimed, "Can you help me enjoy 
the holidays without my food being too plain?"

"So pleased I am that you chosen to no longer regress!  Of 
course my dear, the answer is yes.
I'll give you tips to manage your weight and tricks to use; 
it's never too late.

Being overweight is a serious health risk, so first visit 
your general practitioner and pass his list.
with a clean bill of health we'll be able to start, 
establishing new habits healthy, satisfying and above all 
smart."

"Below are my suggestions for this Christmas break."

*  Plan your day ahead.  Eat breakfast and a light lunch, 
   and if possible set time aside for a walk.

*  Be like Scarlet O'Hara and have a healthy snack before 
   you arive.  It will keep party nibbles (and late night 
   munchies) under control.  

*  Steer clear of creamy cocktails and opt for soda-wine 
   spritzers or long drinks with low-cal mixers.  And try 
   to alternate alcoholic drinks with low-cal soft drinks - 
   if only to save you from a hangover!

*  Be chatty, put your drink down from time to time, get 
   dancing if you can - all will help you pace things. And 
   who knows whom you might meet on the dance floor?

*  Beware of anything deep-fried, battered and in pastry 
   cases - that includes mince pies!  And don't stand next 
   to the food table (and bowls of crisps).

*  Put plenty of crudites and salad on your plate - except 
   for those drippings in fatty dressings.

*  Try to make conscious choices and keep a mental track of 
   what you are eating - helps you stay in control and less 
   likely to say 'blow it, may as well keep eating'.

*  Remember that there'll be plenty of parties to enjoy over
   the holiday season so no need to treat each one as if it 
   were your only chance to indulge. See this is the start 
   of your new habit of 'flexible restraint' - when you eat 
   healthily most of the time but still fit in some fave 
   foods.

"Oh thank you, oh thank you Dr. Campbell and Ms. Costain.  
Trough the holidays my health no longer must wane.
But tell me please, I need to hear.  How shall I carry 
your wisdom through the New year?"

"Please don't do a 'no pain, go gain'.  Instead set some 
realistic goals that you can achieve and sustain," 
Ms. Costain explains.
"Shaving just 10% off your weight leads to significant 
health benefits, focus on small steps and you'll soon be 
happy, healthy and find that tight dress now fits.  

To ward frustration and the occasional slip, try following 
- a few more tips."

-  Decide what you want and write down some goals - remember
   to stay realistic.

-  Make daily positive statements to reinforce your goals, 
   for example, 'I am eating healthily, being more active 
   and getting fitter every day'.

-  Keep a diary to stay aware of your habits, and to track 
   your progress.

-  Indulge in some regular self-nurturing. If you feel good 
   about yourself you're more likely to achieve your goals -
   and less likely to comfort eat.

-  Move more, more often.  Buy a pedometer and work towards 
   doing at least 10,000 steps each day.

-  Plan and shop ahead whenever possible to ensure that you 
   have the best food choices at hand.

-  Beware 'all or nothing' thinking - 'I've eaten a big 
   chocolate bar/missed my gym session so I may as well 
   keep eating/give up'. The chocolate/gym lapse isn't the 
   problem, but your reaction to it could be. It's easy to 
   focus on failures and dismiss all your successes!  
   Forgive, forget, and get back on track. 

-  Eat regular meals, starting with breakfast and watch your 
   portion sizes, especially when eating out.

-  Enlist support - from a friend, partner, health 
   professional, group, and chatroom, whatever - to help 
   you solve rather than feed problems.

-  Enjoy your journey towards establishing new attitutes 
   and lifestyle habits that you can keep up - for a 
   slimmer, healthier future.

Have a MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone !!!
