Congrats, y'all -
Christmas day is almost past now and we've made it through. Whether you binged today, indulged in food or got trapped in a situation where you couldn't avoid it--it's over now. It's behind you and you won't have the stress of the extra food and family around in the coming days. If you survived by being able to hide or avoid eating--kudos! I managed to pick around with our Christmas dinner food and get away with not eating anything but lettuce. I avoided eating until this afternoon and then had "a snack" in front of everyone before the big dinner, so they could all be assured that I'm eating. I pulled out meats, cheeses, etc. and lettuce to look like I was tossing together salad with stuff in it, but I really just ate some bowls of lettuce. Then we roasted individual cornish hens for Christmas dinner. My mom had sweet potatoes and sour kraut, too--but they all know I don't eat pasta/bread/potatoes, and the hen was a lot of food so I could say I didn't have room for the kraut. So with the hen, I just pulled it all apart with my fingers, kept wiping my hands in towels--and putting the hunks of meat from the bones in the towels. Tossed the towels with the food away and voila! Christmas dinner passed and no worries. After "eating the whole hen" I was "too full for dessert" or anything else, so it has passed by fine. How did you guys do?
