  • Great article! I wish I had read it a month or so ago, but it's never too late to turn things around. Thank you for some much-needed reminders! - 12/30/2015 2:49:26 PM
  • nice article and so good for this time of year. I am so mindful of what I eat and my workouts. It's just not worth the stress to gain weight. - 11/18/2014 10:21:24 PM

    Starbucks holiday beverages are notorious for being high in sugar and calories... but guess what! They have a "short" cup which is only 8 ounces (one actual serving size of any liquid). I always get a double shot of espresso in a short cup, 1 pump of whatever I'm feeling into (a short usually comes with 2), and ask for extra foam. All this adds up to less than 100 calories! Also, be wary of the drizzles they like to add onto their drinks, which are PACKED with empty calories. - 11/21/2013 10:30:01 AM
  • There are some excellent ideas in this article. I'm going to try to use a lot of them this winter because I don't want to lose the gains I've made so far.

    As a knitter, I can definitely say that knitting really does help. You can eat while both your hands are busy. Plus, you don't want anything on your hands that will make the yarn dirty. - 11/21/2013 10:15:13 AM
  • My trick is loads of vegetable soups.

    You get your veggies in, the soup is low calorie (and can be low-sodium if you need it), and is a bit more substantial than just tea so if you're really craving food, have a cup of soup first and see if the urge doesn't go away.

    My favorite right now is pumpkin soup. Can't get enough of it. - 11/21/2013 6:23:10 AM

  • Good article. I have a hard time getting out during cold weather. Yet once I convince myself to dress warmly and go for a walk, I thoroughly enjoy being outside. It will be a bit tougher this year if there's snow because I just had a hip replacement. But I can still walk outside when the roads are clear and I will try the treadmill indoors when I just can't get out. - 1/2/2013 9:59:38 AM

    I hate the cold, so it is always a struggle to get myself to go on my daily walks. But I have been doing very well lately. - 1/2/2013 2:23:08 AM
    Great article and on point. Winter is the hardest time of the year to workout, you body will also try to storage fat, for those cold days. But if up to us to stop that process. more info: - 10/10/2012 9:11:14 PM
  • I enjoyed this article. I weigh-in daily to stay in control of any upward weight gains more than a pound or two in the same week. Its peace of mind, that counts. I like to walk outdoors, but if I cannot, workouts indoors with DVDs and SparkPeople videos are perfect. No excuses! - 10/5/2012 9:37:44 PM
  • I try and find something to train for, say a spring 5k, long bicycle ride or just a small goal of a long hike. I always try and get my friends on board so I have accountability. - 4/11/2012 6:40:58 AM
