Personally no, I have no desire to eat bad things.
But dont let it ruin your Christmas.
I used Thanksgiving for "practice" and worked on not eating my favorite foods during the holidays. I cut out breads/grains, starches, and sugars a few days before the holiday. I ate however much I wanted within those guidelines -- tons of veggies, some cheese, some meat. It was tough, and I was jealous of my family members and those people that were eating the "forbidden" foods, but I felt AWESOME after leaving dinner, even though I ate a ton!
Since Thanksgiving, I've lost a lot of weight just sticking within those guidelines and practicing some portion control. I'm so happy with my weight loss that I'm going to stick with my guidelines -- I honestly can't even imagine eating breads/grains, starches, sugars right now, and I think the hard part for me is going to stick within appropriate portions.
The thing, for me, with taking breaks is that I've never been able to take a real break. Some people can, I can't.
It's my birthday today (the 24th) so we are going out for dinner!
I don't. I personally don't get all excited for food anymore.
^ Happy Birthday to the person up there!
I say one day won't do any harm especially if you are a regular exerciser and eat well most of the time. When I had bad stages of anorexia I would try to ignore certain foods, it left me moody and felt like I was missing out. Go ahead and enjoy the holiday season with all the yummy foods!
I ate rice crispy treats and a few cookies and veggies,couple bagel chips-I was so scared but did it except I have severe edema right now and hurts to touch. I am used to eating 700-900 daily hoping to fight anorexia after so many years.
we are making a healthy dinner yum!
I always eat what I want to eat on ANY holiday because I am obsessed with salmon, squash, chestnuts, roasted brussels sprouts, salads, etc - Basically I am not "turned on" by unhealthy gravies, desserts, fatty cuts of meat, rice, etc.
