Let the Dieting Season Begin


When Momma feels good, everyone feels good. Tis the season of taking care of you!

I think if I have one more cookie, I’ll turn into one of the Keebler elves! Having said that let me just say I have enjoyed the Holiday season immensely and am looking forward to New Years celebrations with friends, family and…..wait for it…..food!

If you’re like me, while you’re appreciative of all the beautiful looking tasty dishes and hard work that everyone has put into their favorite wonderful Holiday foods, you’re probably also tired of feeling bloated and slightly overwhelmed by the constant onslaught of delicious eating and ongoing temptations.

Partaking in all that wonderful food can leave you feeling a little sluggish but the upside is, this is the time of year when we typically start to feel more motivated - motivated to ‘lose weight’ and to really start to eat well.

You know how it goes. All that bargaining you do with yourself. You’ll eat right starting today, then you only have New Year’s Eve (maybe New Year’s Day) to get through and THEN you’ll start eating better or dieting at the beginning of the year.

Hey, don’t worry about it, we all do that. The ‘January 2nd’ diet is nothing new.

What may be new to you is looking at dieting from a psychological perspective. I encourage you to check out the ecourse that you can do at your own pace. It has many valuable tools and skills that will help you to stay on top of those sabotaging thoughts and behaviors that, quite frankly, have sabotaged your dieting efforts from the past.

You have to change the way you think about dieting before your dieting behaviors will change.

Then, if you’re looking for a good meal replacement as part of an overall healthy diet, let me remind you of the healthy ViSalus shakes that are available.

I can personally attest to the value of these shakes, and the taste and flavors will knock your socks off. They have personally helped keep my weight in check but has helped me immensely with IBS symptoms, and for those of you who suffer with IBS, you’ll appreciate anything that can create peace and harmony with your digestive track!!

This is a perfect week to start thinking about your weight loss goals and how you’re going to lose those first 5 pounds! Start preparing for that January diet!!
