    Hi Lisa, do you have cheat days? if so, skip a cheat day and enjoy your holiday meal and snacks. if you deprive yourself or make yourself miserable you will stop.
    enjoy, eat reasonable but partake in the holiday spread.
    Then work twice as hard the next week!!

    I look forward to holiday meals. I just don’t go cuckoo.

    It’s what I do the other 360+ days in which I pay attention to.

    My cheat day is eating a yogurt called two good. It has 3 carbs and 2 g of sugar and only 80 callories. I turn it into a sandae by adding fat free sugar free whipped cream then i shave dark chocolate and yummm!

    if it was just one day I would be ok, temptations on tv all month, people bringing food gifts all month. I think it was a hard month. Then all the leftovers. I had to do some serious adjusting. Changing the channel on tv, throwing a lot of food gifts away or regifting, throwing away left overs when the food is yummy but know i get carried away on that high calorie carb and sugar stuff and all the Halmark tv shows with cookies and goodies not to mention the stores, xmas cookies everywhere.

    I don't freak out about it now and enjoy. I'm wiser and old enough to know that enjoying some REAL treats on occasion (and even every day) is better for me in the long-term than trying to abstain altogether or replace with "healthy" alternatives. I decide what treats/indulges I really want and balance everything out. I do enjoy baking so will make healthier alternatives most of the time, but when it comes to certain things--either I want the real thing or it's pretty impossible to do.

    The truth is, I just feel better internally when I eat better, so if I eat a lot of junk I just don't feel good--physically or mentally. So, if I've had a few days of eating more and more junk than usual, I now know I feel better when I"ll get back to my regular eating plan. It's' not that I regret eating that way in the first place, though, and if I did regret it, it means it wasn't a conscious choice)
