Best Way To Get Through Xmas W/O the temptation


Gotta Make A Change
Just look at it as if its any other normal day, just with pressies to open! If you view it as a "special" day you will definitely feel you are missing out. Tell yourself its just another Sunday, another roast dinner to get through as you have done previously and that next year and all the Christmasses after will be those "special" days. Its only one day after all, and what's one day out of the rest of your slim life. Good luck hun xxxx
I'm thinking of myself as the chef, and my family as the diners in my small, exclusive (obviously) restaurant. May get myself a comedy apron, or possibly assume a heavy French accent for the day...

Last year we were in Tenerife for Xmas and had burger and chips for Xmas dinner - I can confirm that the world does not stop if you don't have turkey and all the trimmings!!!!!!!

I'm veggie, so its not big deal for me anyway. However, I will probably take the dogs for a walk when they're all eating, or start tidying up the lounge for after lunch. I'm viewing it as 'just another day' so I won't be eating any differently!

Best way would be to go out jogging and don't come back till they have eaten the lot , you may be out for a while lol , no only joking there is only one answer... thats mind over matter

In my first 2 weeks, I was worried about it, not sure what to do, and thought I would probably eat. I have to say though, that after a couple of weeks counselling and posting on here. I am totally confident I will be totally fine. It won't be a breeze, but I have it planned and have the right frame of mind now.
You will get there too, I am sure.

This is what I'm worried about. My family are a real bunch of 'foodies' and they usually go ALL out on Christmas food. It's the mince pies that get me :eek:
