If you think, “I just want to enjoy myself at holiday events this weekend and not have to think about it,” remind yourself, “there’s no such thing as not thinking about my eating! If I think about it before I go to the party (and when I’m there), I can plan to incorporate a special treat and feel really good afterwards. If I don’t have a plan, I’ll be thinking about it a lot when the party is over – in a negative way – and I won’t be happy I didn’t control my eating. But either way I’ll think about it.
