Visit this link and either sign up for your first weigh in or log on and weigh in before Thanksgiving/in early December – https://weighttracker.meritushealth.com/
Consider choosing “healthier” this holiday season – Increase your activity level daily with more stairs/less elevator; Change up your food choices with apples and cheese sticks instead of a handful of cookies or chocolates; Be mindful of the present (Presents, yes, but also the moment you are in 😉 by listening more to those you interact with, taking in the scents of the season, focusing on your breathing and taking control of your thoughts.
