Weight loss tips for Christmas

Well, it's official :) 3 more weeks 'till Christmas! It's a magical time, this Holiday, the Christmas tree, Santa's presents... and all the Christmas food! Honestly, I can't remember ever spending a Christmas without tons of food. I know the winter holidays should be about the children and bringing them joy, but when have you ever spent a Christmas without way too many meal courses? Everyone cooks like crazy, because everyone visits everyone and what better way to socialize than over a home cooked meal?

Can losing weight go hand in hand with being frugal? Can losing weight actually help you save money? Why, yes! I didn't believe it either, to be honest, but after almost 2 years of living a healthier lifestyle, I noticed that eating healthy is actually a lot cheaper than eating fast food, microwave meals or other fast yet unhealthy meal choices.

Kick starting weight loss is a real challenge among everyone who decides to try it. I know it was for me, I knew I had to do something to lose weight because it's not gonna come off if I just think about it real hard. However, kick starting your weight loss is not that easy, changes need to be made and you'd have to strictly follow them, or it won't work. I'll start with what I did wrong.  I assumed that I would lose weight if I simply stopped eating junk food, like potato chips, cheesy balls, tons of chocolate and bonbons. While the idea was good, it wasn't enough. I did stop eating these unhealthy snacks, but that's all I did. And this is a very common mistake among overweight people.
