There is good news and bad news for the 37% of you who cite weight gain as a top holiday pet peeve. A New England Journal of Medicine study [PDF] says that while the holiday weight gain typically does not exceed one pound, that one pound gained stays with you for the rest of the year! It’s as if it’s waiting to meet with next year’s holiday weight gain, which leaves researchers to conclude that holiday weight gain can be a long-term health issue.
We think the bad news gives you a good reason to visit the 92Y May Center Open House event on January 10. You can drop into our classes, see fitness demos, use our facilities, get free gifts, win prizes, and take advantage of our biggest membership discount of the year. Plus, you will receive three complimentary months added onto your new annual, adult membership if you are among the first 92 people to join! But most importantly, we can help you can get a 12-month head start on burning last month’s round of holiday feasts. Learn more, and see the Open House schedule of events [PDF].
