Its Sixty Days till Christmas, but who is counting??

As you scour through the back to school clearance items and your halloween costume options, turn the corner and on the next aisle-GASP...right before your very eyes are HOLIDAY DECORATIONS. How will you prepare to be in your best shape this holiday season? An article from Janice Wee gives your some great tips to lessen the panic.

As weather turns cooler and thicker clothes are piled on for warmth, an extra ten pounds or even twenty pounds can easily be hidden. Those thick sweaters and coats can hide virtually anything.

The temptation is there to go easy on your diet and exercise regime in fall and into winter. The pounds pile on unnoticeably at first, until it it stime to shop for your party dress.

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year celebrations demand that you show up in party clothes. You know how unforgiving party clothes can be. That extra cheesecake shows up prominently on your tummy or your hips.

Time to get in shape. Fast.

Okay, you can fast but that isn't necessary, though it may be the fastest way to shed the pounds.

Kinder ways to lose weight would lead to more lasting weight loss.

Start a food diary. Take note of everything you eat and drink throughout the day for a week and don't cheat. Then look back through those pages and see your real eating habits. What you see might shock you. Cut back on the calories by replacing soft drinks and sweetened drinks with water. See what else you eat that can be replaced with healthier alternatives.

Through careful diet and daily exercise, you will shed enough pounds to look amazing in your party clothes.
