Do You Feel Like the Holiday Season Has Affected Your Waist Line?

Thanksgiving kicks off the Winter holiday season, a season unfortunately associated with indulgence. I feel like we are about halfway through this festive season with its large offering of parties and feasts and Christmas hasn't even happened yet. Although I have been supplying you with a variety of holiday fit tips, with dieting and exercise suggestions.

I am wondering . . .

I've certainly put on a few since the beginning of the Holiday Season, but it happens every year and I usually bounce back to where I was. This year, however, my "I'll be back by February" mentality has gotten me sick! I've been eating pretty carelessly and I came down with a stomach bug.

I've been sick but with all this cooking I am doing to get ready for tomorrow, I can't really help but sample all the food I am making.

I have new muffin top. And not the good kind. lol I'm telling myself that the fact I recently went on the pill has something to do with it. Which I'm sure it does, but I have been eating quite a lot of cookies and chocolate. Sweets seem to be the popular gift for teachers this years. lol Anyway, I'm buying myself a gym membership for xmas. :)

yes, it definetely is, but in the good way. i'm staying with my parents and this all home made food which is incredibly healthy is doing my body good. my mom is a wizzard with healthy non-fat food... so i eat more and lose weight, so far i've lost 8lbs. i think food is really crap in London, and here far away from metropolitan the food is less poluted so it's so much better for me. i eat pretty much the same stuff now, but the weight goes... :)

My clothes fit the same, but since my workouts have been relegated to indoors-only, I've been sorta bloated lately. I don't weigh myself, but I've been around the same size for the last 3 years or so...holidays don't usually make me gain weight.

I just feel like I'm moving from one event to another, with more food, and more drinks that I can't resist. I'm definitely out of my routine.

I am eating fine and haven't gained (crossing fingers)but I haven't been losing like I usually do either. I'll be happy if I can keep maintaining though.

I was just able to squeeze myself into my pre-baby jeans today and feel GREAT in them! The baby is actually 9, but still. I've been working hard to loose this year and am sticking to my guns during the holidays. It's been hard, but I know it's for the best. :) :hohoho:

my body fluctuates so much. I can gain 5 pounds over the weekend from eating, and then by thursday its off. Never ending battle. I just like to feel healthy and comfortable.

I have been working out hard for months and just recently reached my goal of losing 30 pounds and getting in shape so no way am I going to waste all that by eating junk.

well, I still feel fit and strong but that doesn't mean my jeans aren't getting a little tight. I'm still exercising regularly, I'm just eating a lot more unhealthy foods and eating a lot I've gained a little. Just a little though.

I didn't really care if I gained a little weight over this holiday and was ready to have my fair share of cookies but then a week ago I had my wisdom teeth taken out and haven't been able to have anything to eat for a whole week now. I'm drooling over dessert soo bad now! Hope I'm able to have Christmas goodies on Christmas Day!!!

I get so busy this time of year, that I don't have the time to sit around and pig out. Usually I end up loosing weight over the holidays, which is great!

I FEEL like I must have gained 10 lbs, but the scale has stayed the same. For 2 days I practically ate nothing but cookies, but I have been running all over the city (okay, walking, not running) taking care of errands so according to the pedometer I've been walking well over 20,000 steps/day, so I guess it's counteracting the grotesque cookie consumption.

YES!!!!! I have NO self-discipline. Christmas cookies are my downfall. I also tend to eat more pasta when it's cold outside. I have an elliptical machine and a Smith machine sitting in my spare room but NO motivation! HELP!!!

the holidays kill me every year. i love them but my family stresses me out and that messes with my diet and sleeping. when that happens i find it really hard to motivate myself to work out. hopefully i find the motivation soon.
