Personally, and this is just my opinion, I'd suggest trying a little then watching how your body reacts. I actually do eat watermelon because although it is high GI it is low glycemic load, that means you actually have to eat quite a bit to get much sugar. I've eaten half a small melon without problems, not something I can do with bananas or even cherries. That said this plan is based on the glycemic index so YMMV (your mileage may vary).
Baby steps, losing the holiday excess first.
