If All Else Fails, You Can Dress 10 Pounds Thinner

Style maverick Carson Kressley, host of the new Lifetime show How to Look Good Naked, dresses you slim.

  • Spoil yourself. "Visit your hairstylist or get a fresh manicure -- do the thing that makes you feel extra pretty. You'll have a boost of confidence before you even arrive at the party," says Kressley.
  • No restrictions. "Tightly fitting clothes are too constricting; you came to the party to let loose," he says. "Wear the dress that makes you feel the most attractive. You won't want to spoil your look by overeating, and you'll be too busy flirting to think about food." Curve-hugging cashmere and wool knit dresses are very "in the moment," he notes. For a festive spin, swap your little black frock for a tomato-red number that shows some leg.
  • Be self-assured. "Remember, no one at the party is offering the unique package that you have," says Kressley. "Flaunt what you've got!"

Great information to reinforce my thinking about the holidays! One can enjoy, but as always in moderation, and be sure to get in a workout, first thing in the a.m., otherwise too many excuses if postponed. (I, myself, have been a jogger for over 40 years, raised a family, a grandmother and in my 70's! This has been my mantra my whole life!)

i like that they ended on a positive note. I think self-esteem is such a huge part of loosing weight. As soon as I started REALLY valuing myself and started having fun I stopped obsessing over foods and the pounds melted off. Love yourself, love food--go overboard on the former not the latter :)
