How did you do with your workouts this past month? Did you get a few extra ones in to compensate for a few extra calories you don't normally consume? Did you plan for ways to deal with the challenges that are hardest for you? I planned ahead to avoid the holiday cookie challenge. First, I didn't bake any. Secondly, I avoided cookie exchanges and the like. I did eat a few of my favorites here and there, but overall I think I was successful this year on that front. I hope you all were successful yourself!
Even if you didn't lose weight, but maintained, that is a very good thing! The average weight gain used to be 7 pounds, but it has climbed up to 12 pounds according to one source I read. I am holding a Holiday Challenge for my clients to encourage them during this time of the year. I weighed them in before Thanksgiving and will again after New Years. Those that maintain their weight are winners and those that lose the highest percentage of weight are eligible to two free training sessions.
