(Read this out loud to yourself...!)
My gift to myself is choice and peace of mind during this hectic time of year.
The only person I can control is me. That means controlling my reactions to the "helpful" things other people feel inclined to say especially during all the get-togethers, instead of becoming annoyed and letting them bother me.
I will rise above the baiting, teasing, and gentle prodding. They don't "know" what I'm trying to do or how far I am on my journey. I have no plans to discuss it with them. It is none of their business.
Food may equate "love" to them, but I am in control of the utensil that conveys the fuel (food) to my mouth.
That also means refusing to bow to the dictates of the Food Police. Their problem, not mine.
I will not waver in my commitment and promise to myself.
