Now that January has officially started, many people have started looking in the mirror, or stepping on their scales to find that they overdid it a little bit during the holidays.
January is notorious for being the month when everyone realizes they should have exercised a bit more restraint when they were eating during the many Christmas parties they attended. Once January first hits, they decide that it’s time to do something about all the weight they gained, and they set out on a fitness program that they’re sure will help them look better and feel great by the time spring comes around.
The problem is that too many of us make these resolutions, and we stick to them for a few months. However, by the time March comes, we’ve already fallen off the wagon. How can you avoid that this year? There are a few ways.
Enlist the Help of a Friend
Chances are, you know someone else who would like to drop a few pounds during the coming year, too. Talk to that person about being weight loss buddies. Check in with each other every day. Share your goals with each other, and make a commitment to hold each other to them. Weight loss is always easier when you know you’re not in it by yourself.
Talk with a Nutritionist
It’s always a good idea to get a professional’s opinion when it comes to losing weight. You might be eating the wrong type of foods that you don’t even realize are bad for you. A nutritionist can give you a solid meal plan, and direction as far as how many calories you should strive for every day. You might be amazed at the types of foods your nutritionist suggests.
Use Caution When Eating Out
Where most of us have a difficult time is in visiting restaurants. Many restaurants cook with too much grease, and their servings are so big, you feel guilty if you don’t eat all of it. Still, we love to eat out because we enjoy the social atmosphere. Don’t give up on going out to eat completely. Sweet-N-Saucy is an excellent option because our menu has a variety of healthy choices for you if you are trying to watch what you eat. We have a lot of salads and wraps that will satisfy some of those cravings, while keeping the scale at bay.
If you’ve made a goal to lose some weight this year, good for you! We’d love to help you reach that goal, and it’s our pleasure to offer you a wonderful, healthy dining experience where you can still enjoy a delicious lunch out with your friends, without the guilt. Contact us for more information!
