We all know how hard it can be to stay on track with family and friends around pressuring us to stuff our faces. It’s just as hard for me so I wanted to do a quick post to help us all “recover” from any damage we’ve done to our skinny plans over the holiday.
To those of you who had the self-discipline to stay away from most of the junk: hats off to you!! I did alright – I managed to behave myself most of the time but I admit I didn’t do as well as I would like. So I’m not super-proud, but not really pissed at myself either.
And for those of you who let yourselves go a bit too far this weekend – if you messed up and you’re feeling a bit gross/bad about your overindulgence, here’s some support from me to you, depending on what works best. I know some of you are really motivated by positive stuff and some are much more motivated by the negative. So there’s a paragraph for both types – please read the one that applies to you and skip the other.
If you’ve stayed on track over the holiday, then pat yourself on the back, skip them both – and enjoy the thinspo!
We all sometimes make mistakes, you can’t get down on yourself for every single one – or you’ll never feel like things are on the right track. Besides, it’s Christmas, for goodness sake! For me it was a great opportunity to spend time with family and, yes, I admit – sneak a few yummies in here and there. It’s just one day. Let it help you focus on your long-term goals. That’s what it’s doing for me. I feel like I might have gained a couple pounds, too – so I’m right there with you. Just let it help you focus on what you’re going to do when the holiday is over: get back on track and at your skinny best!
I don’t care if it’s Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever – if you’re going to be strong and keep control of your weight, you can’t be swayed by every little party or holiday that comes along. Quite honestly, people who always find an excuse to lean on really bother me. It’s like the people who say they are “big boned” or being fat is in their genes. No, it’s about what you put in your mouth and I’m sorry (ok, I’m not sorry), but it’s just weak. Stuffing your face like a hog just like the rest of them makes you just as gross as they are. I thought – just based on the fact that you were a Skinny Gossip reader – that you would be better than that? I’m really disappointed.
OK. Enough of the Jekyll & Hyde Skinny Gurl show – let’s get on with the thinspo! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all of you! I love (almost) all of you! XO

How did you do over the holiday?
