    Most people gain some weight in the colder winter climates but I have already gained it...and it's not winter yet!
    anyone else stuck in the house in frigid temps eating ?

      Stacie L- I wish there was a majic solution I could suggest!  This year I set my weight goal and reached it in October. There was no way I was going to let myself gain it back once the weather changed. Eating smaller portions at meals, drinking six to eight glasses of water daily, staying away from too much sugar, and doing yoga has worked for me. A "Buddy System" online has been helpful when I become bored and think I am hungry. Redirecting myself to one of my hobbies also helps. The best advice I got was to keep track of my daily intake of calories and fat grams.
      I wish you the best!

      I try to fill my fridge and cupboards with healthy non-fattening goodies. 

      During winter I do much less exercise (no cycling, no walking) and spend more time either at home or socializing -which means eating and drinking more than usual.  To try to control weight gain, I snack on low fat yogurts, oats (porridge and biscuits) I make my own hot chocolate with unsweetened chocolate, edulcorants and maizena to give texture. 

      For lunches I try to eat filling things, lots of vegetables (roasted or microwaved) and proteins.  I try as much as possible to keep away from white breads, rich cakes, pasta and processed foods. 

      Bref, I try to control what I eat at home so I can "splash out" when I am out with friends.

    The winter has been brutal, I was getting up at 6 in the morning to run during the summer and most of the fall, but since it's gotten cold, I've been out of my element
