Is It Easier Not To Gain Weight or Lose It After You Gain It?

Let’s face it; the holidays are more a Celebration of Carbohydrates than they are a celebration of our spirituality! As soon as the trick-or-carbohydrate fun is over, the push starts from the food companies to “carbohydrate,” in the name of Jesus and Moses. (Even the 25-hour fast of Yom Kippur is preceded and followed by meals high in carbohydrates.)

You know how hard this festive season is to resist cookies, pasta, kugels, bread, mashed potatoes and gravy, lattes, candy and a million other holiday treats, because we love them. So what happens? We gain weight.

You also know how hard it is to lose weight after the holidays. So why not keep it off and even lose some starting right now? Picture yourself on New Year’s Day. Instead of resolving to lose the five pounds or more you packed on, you resolve to “continue” losing one pound a week (that’s what I recommend in “The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here!”)! If you started today, by January 1, 2017 you’d be almost 5 pounds lighter instead of five pounds heavier!

Here’s one of my tips from “The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here!

‚óŹ Have a talk with yourself whenever you feel sad about not getting to have what EVERYBODY ELSE is getting to have. You have the power to make yourself feel better.

The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here!” tells about my two-year journey eliminating most carbohydrates from my diet and how you can do it too. I lost 35 pounds, but more importantly, I’m healthier than I’ve ever been and I’m old!
