The Thanksgiving Devil

Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 1:34 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
Who doesn't love a good holiday? We spend time with family, catch up on life and share funny stories. Oh, right, and we eat. We eat A LOT and we drink (sometimes a lot...).

This past weekend was Canadian thanksgiving. The first of many fall/winter holidays where food is the main entertainment. And, let me tell you, I don't hold back. Not one bit. This past weekend was no exception. In fact, this weekend was a lot worse than thanksgiving's past.

I had a birthday party on friday, a wedding on saturday, a thanksgiving meal on sunday, AND another one on monday. It really was goodbye diet hello sweatpants kind of weekend. I literally ate until I didn't feel well. Not just one night, but ALL the nights. To top it off, I drank and was merry on all of the days. Needless to say i feel like crap today. So bad I wore black tights (yes spandex!) to work today. I couldn't bear to squeeze into a pair of pants that I know would feel  a little tighter than a few days ago.

What I want to know is, how do you I combat this? Is this just the way of our society? Holidays and overeating going hand in hand? And how the hell do those damn thin-as-a-rail people get away with it? I have yet to figure out how to say no to Aunt Sarah's famous pumpkin pie, or cousin Maude's super buttery gravy (please note these named ppl do not actually exist in my family).

Anyways...if anyone has tips on how to stay strong on these beautiful wonderful but at the same time very tempting holidays, please I'm begging you share your secrets!!!
