Over the last few weeks I have been booking in Christmas lunches and nights outs throughout December. Whilst this is super fun and I cannot wait for the big day itself it does fill me with angst and I worry about the food a lot.
I really struggle with my eating and over the past few weeks this has been getting worse again. I want to find it easy and enjoy the season along with everyone else but the feeling of being too fat and not like myself takes over and I find it difficult. This is why I have decided to write about each of the events so that I can share how I am feeling and hopefully get through the season and have some fun!
I have set some rules for myself to help me through:
- Don’t obsess!
- Stay out of your own head, be in the moment
- Forget about what to wear or how to look
- Stop thinking you are fat!
- It’s ok to wear Christmas jumpers
- Enjoy it!
Hopefully if I can follow my festive rules and enjoy the season!
Wish me luck and watch this space!!
