This month is a challenge all around with the yummy foods from the holiday BUT we can handle it! Don’t deprive yourself for you are setting yourself up for failure. Eat smaller portions, drink plenty of water and try to cook items in a lower caloric manner. This will prevent binging. I will confess that by adhering to the above advice I did not lose any weight but I did however maintained my weight and was happy with the outcome.
Awareness to incurable diseases requires our contribution with walks, donations and sharing information with others. November is a month that host and share many awareness projects and as a group I am hoping to stand strong by supporting Alzheimer’s Disease, American Diabetes Month and the National Family Health History Day(November 24). Stay tune for further details.
