Can you believe that Christmas is only 10 days away? Every year, we escaped being responsible for planning for Christmas dinner for the 9th year. I have to say that it makes things so much easier because our family tends to plan for Christmas dinner several weeks in advance and we are given a list of things to contribute to the meal. This year we were assigned to bring a healthy vegetable and dessert.

Christmastime festivities and busyness can derail weight loss plans, even those who have a strong will to ward off junk food.  With countless holiday parties, Eggnog, cookies, candy, and other unhealthy meals it almost seems hard not to put on a few pounds.
