I will be careful with my choices, but won't deprive myself of my favorites. Diets don't work... I eat in a way that I can stick to for life, and sometimes that means splurging.

I will make sure that I am conscious of what I eat and how much. I will allow myself treats now and then

I'm trying to just hold the line. Halloween's already got me tripped up. I'm slightly glad I have no Thanksgiving plans.

Trying really hard to not think of this as dieting, but more as a way of life. If I happen to have an extra piece of pie it isn't the end of the world. So far it seems to be working.

I just am careful about keeping portions reasonably sized. I rarely have gained weight during the holidays.. it's the quiet times that get me!

No,I choose to enjoy the holidays and to portion what I eat.

Diet simply means what one eats. Everyone has a diet and it automatically includes everything that passes their lips.
I think one of the important things to remember during the holidays is that there are very few foods that you can't find during the rest of the year. So you don't have to eat a whole year's worth of turkey and stuffing and cranberry sauce at the end of November. If you really wanted to you could have Turkey in May, cranberry sauce in June and stuffing in July. Focus on the people and activities and don't treat the food as if it is your last opportunity to eat it for the next year. Have some of what you want, but make sure it's within a reasonable margin of error for how many calories you actually burn. In other words it's okay to have a 2500 cal day here and there if you burn 2000 cals a day (and especially if you are eating 1800 cals a day the other days), but consistently eating 3000 cals a day will cause issues. You have to find the balance for you.

-google first. ask questions later.

I don't diet either. I try to make wise choices 24/7/365. If anything, I am the one who brings a veggie tray to have some healthy options.

No. We will continue to make smart choices, plan our meals, enjoy a treat or two without over indulging

Ditto LUANN!!

The "Holidays" will have a few more special (aka higher calorie) meals...but I don't get obsessive about calorie counting for those. I will use the plate method, making sure I'm checking in on serving sizes of Protein, Fat, Carbs and fiber. And those special casseroles, etc, I will limit my serving size and enjoy them totally!!
Happy Holidays! Remember, Life is short...

I don't "diet" any more.
I WILL maintain my healthy lifestyle through the holidays... just as I do any other time.
I also WILL allow for treats...just as I do any other time.
