I am on holiday at the moment. I realise that my normal routines have gone out the window. I don't really know what I am eating, let alone the calorie load. And I am meeting more people than on a usual work day, with a cup of coffee or a drink, maybe a piece of cake.
In the past I would have worried throughout the holiday, wanting to enjoy myself but feeling guilty and worried that I was just putting on extra weight. But I am more relaxed these days! I am on holiday and have given myself permission to enjoy myself. None of us can do a lot of damage to our weight in just a couple of weeks. So you can enjoy your holiday meals and drinks without any guilt trips. On the other hand, it is not an opportunity to let rip!
These guilty feelings don't help us to achieve our goals. If you are wanting to lose weight, then feeling bad about yourself doesn't offer any practical solution. The hypnotherapy that I practice allows you to develop a new way of eating that is sustainable and easy, without any misery or anxiety.

Now is a good time to weigh ourselves and witness the damage. Very few of us will have put on less than 2 pounds. Unless we take action, this weight will still be there next Christmas. Weigh yourself now and decide to be cautious over New Year so that the extra weight doesn't grow further. Over Christmas we are unusually inactive and unusualy well-fed. When we get back to our normal way of life, we can take a little action to get that excess weight off. For now, while we are still in the holiday mood, the most we can hope for is to not put any more on!
What are your outside of mealtimes eating habits? Recognising them will help you give them up so you can manage your weight. Hypnosis will help too.
