Motivation Monday: How to keep yourself from stuffing yourself like a turkey

Thanksgiving is a time for coming together with friends and family, so we can give thanks and eat ourselves into a coma. Yet, if you have been working on your figure, motivational expert Tim Shurr has a few helpful tips for enjoying the holiday AND maintaining a healthy waistline!

1. Drink a full glass of water before you eat. It will make you feel full faster.
2. If the cook’s secret ingredients are butter and cheese, bring a dish so you have a healthier option.
3. If your mom’s way of showing love is through giving your third helpings, return the favor by giving her hugs instead of gorging yourself! Don’t let another’s guilt trip steer you away from your goals. At the end of the day, do you want to feel regretful or proud of yourself? Stay strong and you’ll have one more thing to be grateful for.
