Tradition has encouraged us to engorge ourselves on holiday foods, decrease our exercise and herald in the New Year with lists of resolutions in an attempt to make up for our lack of self-control throughout the holiday season. Ninety-five percent of those resolutions are never accomplished and in
the end they go on the following year’s list. They become permanent fixtures on a perpetual New Year’s Resolution list that only gets longer.
I propose new tactics. Suppose we veer from the flock and resolve to lose a few pounds in the fall, prior to the holidays. If we can lose a few pounds in the fall months and then maintain our weight through December, we would feel pretty good about our abilities of personal control, setting and achieving goals, and our capacity to keep a New Year’s resolution.
The holidays would require strategy. We would need to turn our focus toward making wise choices, a little easier to do knowing we have already lost a few autumn pounds. As the holidays arrive, assess
your holiday traditions. Weed out the ones that are flat out, no getting around it, unhealthy choices. Alter others to where they are still enjoyable but not solely focused on food and gaining weight. Begin by choosing to have only one or at least less than what your typical indulgence might be. If you typically take five of your favorite cookies to eat in one sitting, take only two or choose not to make them this year, which is an even better idea. Forget the cookie swaps. Instead, make decorations, have gift wrapping or tree decorating parties. Take the family Christmas Caroling. Continue with daily exercise, drink lots of water, be positive and perhaps in the end, even if all we accomplish is avoiding the holiday weight gain we will meet 2012 knowing we have accomplished something big and that our goals are very achievable.
