Recently, on a website that shall remain nameless, I saw a post about how to avoid holiday weight gain.
I reacted to it the same way I do when I see Facebook statuses about people playing Christmas music before they’ve consumed Thanksgiving dinner.
While it’s obscenely early, I’ve decided to give myself an early Christmas gift. I’m allowing myself to accept the holiday weight gain and not give a fuck if I’m three pounds heavier come New Years Eve.
I’m a happy eater, and for a long time, I wasn’t true to myself! I love the holidays. I love cookie swaps and hot chocolate and pies and festive cocktails.
I’m not trying to be Pro Fatty, but life is too short. The holidays are a special time and it’s because they’re filled with sugar, and carbs, and family members that make you want to drink.
Also, it’s cold out, so your body needs a little bit more fat than normal, right?
Am I totally off base, or does anyone else agree?
