(StatePoint) Chances are, if you’re contemplating a New to Cornell University’s Food & Brand Lab. If you can adopt

But the best time to make a weight loss commitment is during the holidays.

resolution.
Here are her insights to consider, and, if you add the
help of Jenny Craig’s Rapid Results, you can lose up to 16
pounds in the first four weeks (average weight loss was
11.6 pounds for those who completed the studies), making
it a great way to start an early weight loss resolution.
1: You’ll Love Your Holiday Photos. Whether work party
snapshots or the chronicling of special moments spent
with family and friends, the holidays are loaded with photo
ops. But how often have you avoided pictures because you
didn’t feel good about being in front of the camera?
“A common refrain we hear from members is that they
avoided having pictures taken of themselves because
they weren’t happy with their weight,” says Carrie Elkins,
division manager for Jenny Craig Anywhere.
By making a commitment now, you can feel healthier and
more confident during the holidays -- and have the photos
to remember those moments.
2: You’ll Be More Proactive and Procrastinate Less.
Let’s face it: If you know you want to lose weight but are
waiting until January to start, you may just be delaying
the inevitable. Waiting can set you up for procrastination,
and procrastination can actually be harmful, according to
the Association for Psychological Science, causing people
higher levels of stress and lower well-being. Resolve to
start losing weight now before the holiday madness begins
and while you have the drive.
“Motivation is key when it comes to preparing the psyche
for any important behavior change,” says Peeke.
3. Starting Now Means a Different Resolution in January.
Beginning your weight loss journey now can give you the
confidence to tackle a different resolution in January. So,
make a new New Year’s resolution! Use the motivation
gained by following through on your weight loss goal to
fuel your next challenge.
4. The Time is Right. For many Americans, the holiday
season starts with Halloween. That’s three months of
potential overindulgence. In fact, the average American
starts to gain weight around Thanksgiving, with weight
gain peaking around the December holidays or the New
Year and it can take up to five months to lose it, according
