Talk about It
Talk about your plans: Share your plans with your family and friends. They can be your biggest supporter!

Once that is established, you will feel good about it and add another change to your lifestyle.
When you assume and expect success and realize it is possible—which it is—you’re prepared to do what it takes to find that success. Now go for it!

New Year’s Party Survival Guide
Use these quick tips to avoid overeating at your holiday party:
• A plate of appetizers is considered a meal. Don’t load up on appetizers and then sit down to a full meal.
• Survey all of your food options before beginning to eat. Choose a few of your favorites and then fill the rest of your plate with greens.
• Liquid calories count. Stick with only one calorie-filled drink and then switch to water.
• Eat a sensible meal before you arrive at the party. This will cut down on party food calories.
