'Tis the season ... for overconsumption. And in a time when overindulgence is a national (and increasingly international) concern and way of life, the end-of-year holidays' emphasis on even greater intake of calories promises there'll be no shortage of healthy resolutions come day one of 2004.

A better choice, as espoused in a series of weekly columns in The Washington Post dubbed the "Lean Plate Club," is to end the current year with a pledge: Not to give in at the many upcoming, festive opportunities to sweet, fattening temptations. Post columnist Sally Squires instead proposed in a pre-Thanksgiving column titled "Making This Holiday Season a Leaner One" that people change the mindset from fit to fat -- cutting calories and developing a habit of regular, healthy exercise.

To help with tracking the worthy effort, the Lean Plate Club offers for download a pair of PDF-based charts -- one to record weekly weight maintenance [PDF: 328kb] and another to chronicle frequent physical activity. [PDF: 324kb]

For each of the next few weeks, the Post columnist will offer one goal for each chart/theme. Squires explains the simple goal:

"Stick with the program, try a few ideas, and flat-lining your weight over the holidays can be your gift to yourself."
