i avoid sweets altogether. i'm not much of a sweets person anyway, but if I do partake, then it sets me up for binge behavior. this year, I've made a promise to myself only to eat those things I don't normally have all througout the year. I eat more protein and vegetables than anything. i'm bringing veggies to my party. when we had our christmas dinner for work on friday, I only at the protein, avoided the carbs, and ate only when I was hungry, stopped before getting stuffed. i made a promise to myself to listen to my body. I eat only when hungry. I stop before I get too full, I know that the food will still be there, there is no reason to gorge myself.

1 bite at a time = 1 choice at a time.
Choice is in our power; take the power and run.

I don't bake as much as I used to...I don't put out an overly amount....and, when out, I take a favorite or two, and sit far far away from the buffet table. That being said, its Christmas! 4 weeks from now, when I am well on track with food and fitness, it won't matter that much.
So really. I attempt to be sensible, and I don't over think it.

I'm BAD about eating cookies. And I helped enable myself and others at work by baking treats at work (group home). But now that I am on vacation, the temptation is gone.

We will be having Christmas Eve at my daughter's and she is a chef and usually has lots of her own personal concoctions for us to try. I usually sample a few and leave it at that.

My sweet tooth is not over-powering anymore but occasionally I allow myself a small treat.

It's not easy but I look for things that are healthy and keep "diet foods around" I also allow myself one small whatever holiday treat per day--if necessary.

Plan ! Plan!,and be careful to eat just what is neccessary. Aviod the temptations,if you must just take one bite (enought to taste and satisfy the cravings). It works for me.

"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able ; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it (1 Cor. 10: 13)

I know it is the wimpy way to do things but I avoid most of the temptations. I hate buffets because if I am paying for it I just want to get my moneys worth and that is a recipe for disaster. For most occasions I do the usual, eat low cal ahead, look for low cal stuff and get extra exercise.

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."

I've been trying to keep up with daily exercise to help balance out the eating. So far in the past two weeks in the States I've been able to drop 0.6 pounds. If I stay the same for the rest of the month and start dropping again in January, that would be fine. But I do NOT want to gain.

We won't be going to any parties and I limit what I prepare. I'll easily be able to stay on track.

I was wondering how those of us out there are doing in battling the holiday temptations, learning to step away from the high calorie buffet Christmas party tables, and what steps you are taking to maintain or do the 2 steps foward approach when you go beyond your "moderation" in calorie choices.

Do you change your diet food choices to healthier ones the rest of the week?
Do some form of exercise as an extra for that day or the next?
Give up and keep binging?
Plan ahead for the festivities and have what you are going to eat already accounted for?
