Post-Thanksgiving Blues

I truly hope you thoroughly enjoyed your Thanksgiving dinner. But did you or did it leave a bad taste in your mouth? Did you chew it with shame, swallow it with guilt and wash it all down with punishment? I hate to be bleak on a day that is meant to be full of love, appreciation and gratitude, but the truth is so many people eat and feel this way, especially on the holidays.

Did you feel shame that you overate, went back for seconds and had every dessert offered? How about guilt that you “cheated,” that you didn’t stick to your latest diet? And are you planning on punishing yourself in the gym this week and restrict your calories to make up for all that you ate this holiday?

How did you treat your body? Did you look at your stomach in disgust? Did you feel your rolls? Did you scan yourself up and down wondering where the stuffing was going to land? How about the scale? Did you step on the scale hoping for the miracle that you lost a few pounds instead of gained? Are you depressed with what the number actually revealed?

If any of this speaks to you, then these are sure signs that your relationship with food and body need some intervention. Wouldn’t you feel so much freer and your next holiday meal taste so much better if you chewed it with joy, swallowed it with pleasure and washed it all down with gratitude? You can have that and I will teach you how in my upcoming Weekend of Nourishment.
