The Dreaded Holiday Weight Gain
Question 1: The average American gains this many pounds over the holiday season…
Question 2: How many people make New Year’s Resolutions?
Question 3: How many people successfully keep their New Year’s Resolutions?
Question 4: What is the most popular New Year’s Resolutions?
Questions 2, 3, 4: Nearly 40% of us make New Year’s resolutions. 9% of us keep them (23% quit in the first week; only 36% make it past the first month). The most popular resolution is – drum roll please – exercise. In fact, the top 3 NY’s Resolutions are all health-related. (Read on for answer #1).
The dreaded holiday weight gain! The season should be about joy and loving connection, but too often we are left with a “what truck just hit me” feeling when all is said and done.
Whether it’s too much food, drink, stress, or even family; or too little movement, outdoor time, sleep, or “me time,” we can feel out of whack by January. And worse, if we are like the average American, we have packed on 1-5 pounds that we did NOT need to gain.
Which isn’t the whole story…because we do not typically lose that 1-5 pounds, so next year, here comes another 1-5 pounds.
As a society we are getting fatter and fatter, with all the health consequences that overweight brings (read THIS for a deeper dive into just what fat does to you).
How can we do better?

But don’t just make a “wish” and call it a “resolution.”
If you were off course before this whole season began, what are the chances that you’re going to get yourself where you want to get without help after?
If you’re ready to be done with the madness and finally achieve the health you know you should, I can help.
I can come alongside you and help you get rid of the excess fat, the out-of-whack hormones, the off-track sleep, and the crushing feeling of defeat because…here you are again.
We are opening our 10-week coached “Solutions Reset” program back up bright and early in January, making it better than ever! Linda and I teach you what, when and how to eat for optimal health, leveraging real food, the power of community and us alongside you all the way. No crazy powders, potions or supplement regimes, just real talk, real food, and real change. It works!
“All of my jeans fit and some are waaaaaayyyyyy too big!
And my shorts fit! They haven’t fit in years! I almost donated them all this summer.”
