Every year at Christmas I feel a bit of a pull toward the yummy things all around. I'm doing cookie baking and candy making for my family so I'm around stuff that is tempting. (Somehow, wedding cake icing isn't tempting after 16yrs! LOL!) This year I'm going to try something new and I'll let you all know how it goes.

I'm going to allow myself ONE of each of the things I'm making but I'm going to keep a little coffee mug on a shelf where the tasties can wait until a meal substitution or between meal time snack or bedtime. This way if I want to skip my starch at dinner and maybe have an almond crescent or a piece of homemade peanut brittle I will have the yummy without goofing up my food plan.

I have to do this because in the past I have really lost control over the holidays and it's frustrating and difficult to get back on track. Anyone else have some good holiday ideas for control?

I was told a long time ago that at a holiday meal (or a buffet or a large dinner party) you should taste everything and eat nothing!!!

At the end of the party you've had the equivalent of a meal and not binged on anything!
