So many of my friends are talking about the stress of trying to stay on program during the holidays. It is just so difficult. And who needs more stress? My decision is that I will try to use the holidays as a practice period for living/eating normally, using the habits I hope will help me when I reach goal and am trying to maintain my weight loss. That includes continuing to exercise regularly, eating slowly, watching portion control, and all the rest. If I deprive myself of the holiday treats that surround me, I know I will grow more and more resentful and depressed and set myself up for a binge of huge proportions! Anybody else have some thoughts on survival strategies?
