Thanks for your post!
When I see her at Christmas there are many people around who are loving and supportive so I can avoid her, we also stay at a hotel so when it gets to much I can physically leave and calm down. Ironically I usually lose weight over christmas because I don't like most of the food our family eats at that time (turkey, brussel sprouts, fruit cake). This was the first time she had stayed longer than a single night.
It was having her stay with us that caused me to go off plan I think, she was just always THERE, there was no escape. Even if I went out on to the balcony she followed. She isn't nasty she just thinks her way is the only way and oh boy she is going to let you know that over and over.
Lesson learned about having her stay with us, next time she will be put up at a hotel so we can get a break. After she left the BF and I cuddled on the couch in total silence for an hour, it was bliss! He also totally overate and drank while she was here. He joked that the only time we got to say something was when her mouth was full LOL!
Im going to use the cranberry and vodka idea for christmas, it would be a lot less calories!
