The Holidays can be Hard

Adoration of the Shepherds (1622) by Gerard van Honthorst depicts the nativity of Jesus

If you are on a weight loss/ maintenance journey, the holidays can be a nightmare. It’s not just the constant offering of food, but the feelings around food, and the expectations of others. Food is something we use to express love. Food is what we also use to deal with emotions, good, bad, and ugly.

Then you add to this a layer of alcohol, and you have a perfect storm.
