Avoiding Holiday Weight Gain

I'm reading: Avoiding Holiday Weight GainTweet this!

Despite Thanksgiving, the ultimate foodie holiday party and other seasonal festivities, not to mention massive quantities of renovation stress, I'm down 7 or 8 pounds from where I was in August.

But the final weeks of the year mean more parties, latkes, candies and cookies. Lots of cookies as I'm coaching the Food Science team for Science Olympiad and we plan to bake the school break away. Yikes! What's a weight watching mama to do?

Check out these great tips for preventing holiday weight gain from Esther Crawford over at The Dish, the new blogger resource site from ConAgra Foods.

Congrats on your progress! I try to allow myself a little taste of everything and try not to overfill my plate. Keeping active and going to the gym regularly helps a lot, too.
