I spent so many years binge eating my way through November and December, vowing to start over again in the new year. When the new year came around I was already 15 pounds heavier because of that decision.
How many years have you binged your way through November and December?
It’s like “I’m nowhere near my goal weight and I can’t change much in two months or one month, so fuck it. I’ll just get back on the wagon in January.” Except that’s what you tell yourself every year…so you essentially are gaining and losing the same 15 pounds over and over again and beating yourself up because you feel like a failure.
Listen. It’s not so much about the abundance of holiday comfort food that leads to the weight gain. It’s about the emotional bullshit that comes up when Aunt Betty makes passive aggressive comments about your weight in front of the entire family. It’s about your asshole drunk uncle and his off-color remarks that fill you up with embarrassment and rage. It’s about feeling obligated to buy gifts for people who don’t really give a shit about you. It’s about you not actually enjoying the holiday season because of all that.
Dive into this episode to learn how to stop losing control during the holidays.
