Once you have practiced feeling how you want to feel, arranged your environment for eating success, given yourself permission to indulge your body and mind in pleasurable, non-food ways, and made time for joyful activity, all that is left to do is relax and let go.
Simply enjoy yourself, your family, and the beauty of the season. Let your “white knuckling,” restrictive behavior go and trust in yourself to continue caring for your body to the highest degree, with respect and love. The holidays are truly meant to be enjoyed, chocolate truffles and all.
