The Five Week Food Orgy

The U. S. Thanksgiving holiday is upon us, beginning the five-week food orgy that takes us to the New Year. 

Have you noticed we don’t talk about gaining an average of 7-10 pounds through the various holidays between May and September?  They aren’t really about food in the same way, are they?  They have that component, but grandma’s potato salad at a summer barbeque doesn’t pull at our heart-strings like the cookies, pie, cake, fudge, dressing/stuffing, or you-name-it made especially in November and December, does it?  And we do average a net gain by the new year.

Would you like to do it differently this year?

What if you woke up on New Year’s morning having enjoyed the holiday season AND:

Can slide easily into that pair of jeans that are currently a little tight?  

You’re already on track with food and exercise choices and feeling?

You don’t feel deprived?

Here’s a big one:  What if you could manage the family “stuff” without feeling so stressed or diving for the fudge or Chex Mix or whatever food soothes your rattled self?

Do you believe that’s possible? 

Okay, okay, I know that’s a lot of questions, and the idea feels a little unattainable – and that’s part of the issue.  We don’t think it’s possible, so we don’t question what we’ve been doing.  We don’t find ways to change our thoughts or choices to achieve it, and therefore, nothing changes.  To get a different result, we have to make a different choice.  The thing is, when we no longer eat for emotional reasons, it saves us a whole bunch of calories and poor choices, so the result is already different.  You can get free from emotional eating – before the New Year.  Want some help?
