This Is the Time of Year When You’re at Your Lowest Weight

Your Lowest Weight

Love the way you look in your skinny jeans right now? Relish it. A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, suggests that you’ll probably weigh less this week than you will for the rest of the year.

According to the data from the study, people in the U.S. start to slowly gain weight after the first week of October, and that weight gain peaks right after the New Year.

For the study, researchers analyzed the weight patterns of nearly 3,000 people and found that our weights starts to rise around Thanksgiving, peaking near Christmas and the New Year. What’s more, that weight you gain between October and January can take more than five months to lose. It’s not until Easter that most people get back to their pre-holiday weight, with slight fluctuations between April and November, the study reports.

In fact, there’s plenty you can do to keep the scale consistent. “Instead of making a New Year’s Resolution, make an October resolution,” Wansink says in a press release. “It’s easier to avoid holiday pounds altogether than to lose them after they happen.”
