“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeerCannot fit in any clothes!He eats so many goodiesYou can see his belly grow!”
The holiday season is fun! People are nicer to each other, there are great lights and decorations everywhere, and somehow everything just seems to smell good. No wonder so many people consider it the very best time of year.
But I’ve got to be real. The holidays are also HARD. I recently read through an article that discussed the difficulties of staying sober this time of year after overcoming alcoholism, and a lot of the same principles apply to beating food addiction. The holidays are prime for relapses, what with all the parties and treats delivered right to your door. However, speaking as a former food addict, I know it’s possible to enjoy this time of year without falling back into old habits.
Here are a few ideas you can rely on over the next few weeks. I’ve adapted them from the article mentioned above because, although alcoholism and food addiction have distinct differences, the tips to rise above temptation are very applicable. Put them into practice, let us know how they work out for you, and have a wonderful holiday season!
