Sweet Treats

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Here it is a week before Christmas, and I have already overdone the holiday eating! We went to a Christmas dinner at church; it was catered but everyone brought a dessert. Needless to say, it was soooo hard to pass up all those homemade sweet treats! I didn't sample everything, but I did sample three different desserts (sample size). emoticon

Of course, later I regretted it and felt guilty. I don't need the calories OR the sugar rush. Do any of you have tips for passing up the goodies? When I don't eat any dessert, it seems to draw attention to me (or maybe that's just my excuse to sample??). This time of year is SO HARD!!

    There is no need to beat yourself up. At this time of the year, we all have favorites and there is no problem with a little. Just budget it in and work through it.

    It is tough to get through a holiday without so-and-so's fudge or someone else's pecan cookies, etc. While something that we need to limit ourselves to, we for years have tied food and memories. Those ties aren't easily broken and should be nourished because while the food may not be the best for us, the memories are sustenance for the soul.

    Enjoy one or two so you don't feel deprived, just control your portions and you will be fine.

    I don't know what the answer is. Maybe it's that "not fair" thinking that we have when it comes to these types of functions. It's not fair that everyone else can eat dessert and we can't. I know that's the way I feel. The problem is that sometimes it takes a few days to get back on track. I'm one of those people that can't eat a bite or two so I just have to try to push away from the table.

    When you are doing something that takes a huge effort, it feels like everyone is watching. They aren't. I walk past the treats. If anyone does ask I tell them a little lie: that I've already had a bunch. They don't know and really don't care.
