Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years. For many of us, these times can be incredibly stressful. Yikes! But let’s try to keep things simple and focus on Just One Thing.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner! For those of us suffering or recovering from Binge Eating Disorder this holiday can be tricky. The food, friends and family, many of whom we haven’t seen in a year or more, all combined with the other stresses of the holiday could easily send a person into a eating frenzy panic. It could be an emotional eating field day from noon until midnight. But this year I’m going to prepare ahead of time and have a plan for the day so I can keep my resolve and not binge eat this Thanksgiving.
