Never Too Late to Plan
By Meggan Larson
Christmas is almost here! Yaaaaaaaaasssss! Let the bells ring out and bring on the snow! This will be the only time of the year that you see me say that. I love the snow right up until New Year’s and then it’s just depressing. Moving on! It’s just barely two weeks until Christmas ~ can you believe that? Goodness, this year flew right by. I’m in a lot of Keto Facebook groups because I enjoy seeing people’s success stories and sometimes it helps to keep me going. Lately, a trend I’ve been noticing though has been a little alarming to me.
A lot of people have been…
…saying that they’re going to just start over in the New Year. Basically they’re going to eat whatever they want throughout the holidays and then get back on track on January 1st. Y’all I have totally done this. Did you know it’s possible to gain 10lbs in just a couple of weeks? Trust me, it’s true. I’m not proud of that knowledge and in fact, I have done my best to make sure that I share with you how it’s NOT worth it to gorge through the holidays. Let’s go through the basics, shall we?
First, you’re going to feel like G-A-R-B-A-G-E! That’s not super fun guys ~ believe me. Next, it’s going to be that much harder for you to get back on track because your system is loaded with junk and that’s what you’re going to be craving now. Why make it harder on yourself? Finally, overloading your body with junk will lower your immune system and likely cause you to get sick. I don’t know about you but when I get sick I’m a big ol’ baby. I want my comfort ritz crackers and chicken noodle soup. Is that going to help you get on track? No.
You have two weeks to plan out an amazing ON PLAN Christmas dinner. Bake yourself some treats to have in the freezer for when everyone around you is eating sugar. You can just grab a little nibble and voila! Craving crushed. FYI the new Lily’s peanut butter cups are soooooo good! They’re expensive and there aren’t many in the bag but if you treat them like a rare treat then you will be so grateful you have them. My hubby doesn’t know this yet but he bought me some for my stocking this year. 😉
The Laundry Moms has a TON of yummy on plan recipes that you can browse through to make your holidays delicious. Take some time to go through them now and plan for your success instead of failure.

Meggan Larson is a wife, mom of three, and challenge overcomer! Being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and undergoing aggressive chemotherapy when her second born child was only three months old, gave Meggan an expected twist to her life. Dealing with pregnancy weight gain and the debilitating effects of chemotherapy, Meggan’s weight soared to over 228 pounds. Feeling humiliated with no desire to socialize, Meggan was desperate for a change. Shortly after losing 20 pounds with the Trim Healthy Mama program, Meggan found out she was pregnant with baby number three, which ended in an emergency C-section and unexpected hysterectomy. Despite the challenges she faced, Meggan has just celebrated her one year “trimiversary”, and her success of releasing just over 60 pounds! Meggan is confident that her success on plan is “doable” for anyone looking to gain back their health and wanting to live a trim and healthy lifestyle!
