          Enjoying the Holidays Without Overeating

          December 17, 2003

          Our tip today has to do with the holidays, which should be a great time in your life. We want you to relax. We want you to reflect on the things that really matter in life, and that’s your friends and family. Just taking the time to call “time-out” and focus on the things that our busy, busy lives tend to crowd out.

          But danger lurks, let me tell you, because people tend to love you with food. Stop and think about how many times your aunts or your mom have all come to you and said, “Oh, try this. Try that. You’re not eating enough.” Don’t let this time where you’re relaxed and focused on fun turn into a pig-out. Think about it. How many times have you done this in the past and, at the end of the day, you’ve actually felt sick.


          Define your rewards differently. Tearing down all the hard work you’ve done is not a reward. Stay the course. You’ll be glad you did.
