  1. I am in the same boat. I have a cycle of “doing right” this week only to eat something “bad” and mess up. This holiday season I plan to prepare healthier versions of the foods I love. I will relax and be in the moment enjoying what the day brings. I will pay attention to my body and give it whatever it needs.

  2. I completely understand! I’m in the process of loving my body and that comes in various ways; eating, skin care, resting, emotional control. This holiday season, I’m focusing on my eating habits. It’s challenging because everyone around me have cabinets full of junk food. However, like you Raya, I have full control of my body. Yes to all of us for taking care of ourselves!

  3. I feel you. Good luck with your journey. I struggle too. I have found that following the WW program has worked for me, using the app keeps me accountable to myself even when I don’t always make the best choices.
