Dear Friends & Family of LapSF and the Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii,

 Thanksgiving       

        It happens every autumn.  The holiday season approaches, and while enjoyable, it can sometimes be a stressful time of year. Here are some strategies to help you succeed if you are struggling with your weight or worried that you will.  

         As some of you have heard, planning has started for a 2012 Patient Appreciation Party, please fill out our survey so we can keep your ideas and desires in mind.  

         Happy Holidays!


Dealing With The Holidays

stress5 Ways to Deal with Holiday Eating Anxieties

 

  1. Never try anything new at a party.  A party is not the place to find out what will or won’t make you sick – stick to foods that you know your stomach can handle.
  2. Take baby-bites if you must.  If you simply can’t resist your favorite holiday indulgence, limit yourself to a miniature bite.  This also works well to avoid hurt feelings when a loved one is insisting you try this year’s favorite recipe.  
  3. Eat healthy before you go.  The best way to avoid overeating at a party is to make sure you are not hungry – then you will be less likely to give into foods that look good but may make you sick.
  4. Bring your own food. Guests often bring food contributions to holiday parties – make sure yours is a healthy option pre-approved by your stomach.
  5. Talk more; eat less.  Make a point of being social, no one will notice weather you are eating or not.  

 

Think of the holidays as an opportunity to enjoy and celebrate your new weight loss with friends and family.  Focus on what you’ve done for yourself and your health in the past year instead of the pies and treats you are not eating!
