Christmas stuffing

Now is a good time to weigh ourselves and witness the damage. Very few of us will have put on less than 2 pounds. Unless we take action, this weight will still be there next Christmas. Weigh yourself now and decide to be cautious over New Year so that the extra weight doesn't grow further. Over Christmas we are unusually inactive and unusualy well-fed.

For now, while we are still in the holiday mood, the most we can hope for is to not put any more on!
