Should You be Worried about Winter Weight Gain?
Worried about winter weight gain? Don’t be. Well, I should specify. Don’t be worried about it if you have a plan in place.

My husband claims the winter weight gain helps him keep warm. Whatever. He can easily lose that weight. Me? It takes for. ev. er. to lose weight.
I’ve also discovered that when I have a plan, I can easily avoid gaining weight over the winter, even if I eat a little more sugar than normal. When I don’t have a plan for staying healthy, my mind becomes my biggest enemy and, you guessed it, I end up acting and eating in unhealthy ways.
