Don’t get sidetracked by weight worries in the face of holiday traditions. (Indeed, we don’t encourage a focus on weight any time!) Maintain your healthy habits and revel in the pleasures of the season.
Eat what you want.
Only by giving yourself permission to eat whatever you want, can you decide what you really want.
Create opportunities to nurture yourself and celebrate your commitment making yourself a priority.
At the close of the season, even if you feel like you’ve overdone it a bit, keep your thoughts focused on the future. It’s not what goes on between Thanksgiving and the December holidays that makes the real difference in our lives. It’s what goes on the other 11 months of the year
