When I made the decision to lose weight, I considered either a fast weight loss diet to lose weight quickly or a slow weight loss method to lose weight over time. For me, I knew I did not want to lose weight to only gain it back after a short period of time. I needed a weight management solution that would help me successfully lose weight and keep the weight off long term.

I almost quit. It was the end of the day and I was tired from getting the house prepared to host a large Christmas gathering. After my last guests had left, my husband and I put our toddler to bed and then started the task of cleaning up the mess. When we finally finished, we rested on the couch and I started tracking my calories and logging the party food.

But now, after remembering, I simply didn’t want to track it. In my mind, I just wanted to quit for the day and start fresh tomorrow. Finally, I logged the sandwich, observed my now 2,000+ calorie day (my daily calorie goal is 1500 calories) and went to bed.

And in addition to all the music, family time, and the fun of Christmas comes another not so welcomed December tradition- the weight gain of the holidays. This is why I am posting this Christmas weight loss challenge.
