Here We Go!
I see that we are now being bombarded with information on how to get rid of those extra pounds before Christmas, how to deal with a hangover, how to deal with overeating, how to get into that little black dress etc etc and I have to ask why?
Why do people need to wait until Christmas or a holiday to get into shape, why do people need to wait to be inspired to get rid of any extra weight, why do people need to drink to the point that they need help to get over it, I mean, these articles are directed at adults aren´t they?
If you live your life in a healthy way you can enjoy everything in moderation and feel great all year. Weight loss for example is incredibly difficult to achieve, well, if you are stressed about the whole process. This generally results in some crazy diet which leaves you feeling fed up, spotty and so as soon as the bell strikes and Christmas arrives you stuff your face to cheer yourself up, back to square one again, and then start reading articles about how to get the ´new you´in 10 minutes in the new year publications.
If you want to look and feel great, brilliant, but do it right, do it for you and do it because you want to, not because you have purchased a dress too small with the view that one way or another you will fit in it. As a nutritionist I work with many people who want to make a difference to how they look and feel and it can be a long journey, but in the end, living well becomes so easy, no stress, just positivity and a very positive outlook.
