7 to 10 Pounds

7 to 10 pounds....I GOOGLED how much weight a person gains over the holiday season! From Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve.... 7 to 10.

That is not going to be me. I am determined to maintain or lose weight through the holidays. I am not going to be the average American.

I don't know how it is at everybody elses' house but at my house there is food out all day long! We wait until everyone gets there, then we eat. Round 1 starts around 12:30. Then more people come in and Round 2 starts. Round 3 continues after more family arrives. The family ends up eating all day. I know that I cannot do that.

I have to make some conscious food choices. I am going to eat lots of green...less ham. One trip and one desserts. I am not going but one round. Then after I eat I am getting out of the house and walk! We are going to my uncles. He has a looooong driveway. I may need to walk it more than one time.

I know that I can do this.

7 to 10 pounds!!! I don't see how that is possible. Since 1 pound equals 3500 calories, that means that one would have to eat 35,000 extra calories to gain 10 pounds. Oh. My. Goodness.
I know that won't be you. I definietly have faith in you!
