Fit By The Holidays 45 Day Challenge, You Can Do This!

Can you believe the Holidays are right around the corner? Most people love this time of year. It’s chance to re-connect with family and friends, to celebrate life together. However, that is not all that comes with the Holidays. That’s right, it also comes with countless temptations to slip up when it comes to eating healthy.

Every year around this time of year people are compelled to bring all sorts of sugar- laden baked goods wherever people gather. Just “one cookie” leads to every day saying yes to what is put in the break room. But how can you say no to the tempting item, when the person who made them did it with the best of intentions? It’s their way of sharing Holiday joy!

I know exactly their reasoning, because I was that person. I would take great pride in bringing special treats. How would I feel when someone turned one down? Frankly, a little sad. I took the rejection personal. Wow, have I grown up in that area.

Today, If I want to share a treat it’s a low carb one or I do an act of kindness instead. Can you believe one year I baked homemade sweet bread for each family in my church? I spent hours kneading and baking. I just wanted my church family to know that they were special to me.

Thankfully, I have learned healthier ways to show someone they are important in my life and it does not have to revolve around food.

Unfortunately, having a treat or two every day can lead to an extra 5 -10 unwanted pounds. You tell yourself, it’s not a problem because after all January is right around the corner, and this time for real you will be serious about getting your weight under control.

Why go through the heartache of stepping on that scale on January only to loath what you did to yourself again. Instead, let Fittoserve assist you and this year get Fit by the Holidays instead.

    I’m at my goal weight now, I think.
    Lost a total of 91 pounds. I do love your weight loss challenge and a prize offered.
    My goal through the holidays is to maintain without gaining.
    Looking forward to victory for all of us.

    I saw this challenge all too late- just today- am sad that I can’t take part but I will use this as a motivational too to challenge myself to give up things and depend on other things than food, to get me along.
    Please can you explain : watch the count- less than 25 carbs per day ?
