Hi Brenda, The only way I can stay clean is don't go to Christmas.
That's the only way I can do it, and it does not make for good family relationships. For some reason, family wants me there eating no matter what is does to me.
Sort of drives me nuts too.
Sure, they offer me the right foods, but I'm wanting the crossants next to THAT CHEESE.
I give my sister credit for offering me foods DH and I can have.
Then I have times I stay prim and proper promising myself anything I want to eat afterwards if I stay clean while around family. I fool myself.
Sometimes we are highly admired because we have "looked so good" at the occasion. They awe over us with "How do we do it?" I hate that attention too, and it drives me to eating.
There are the times we don't let on we are dieting to certain people and act like we eat like that all the time, "no big deal." But then I suffer with terrible illness of headache, moodiness, constipation, etc. I am left with why did I go off my good WOE?
So I suppose I don't have any one answer. I just do what I want, or what everyone thinks I should be doing, what ever happens. I'm confused for sure, but good question. I'll be thinking of this one, for sure.
