You know this, but you just need to be smart about it.  All of that food/snacks if fine in moderation.  I think trying to squeeze in exercise is a good idea.  Even going for nice long walks!

Definitely what PP said.  The typical tricks always work, go for a smaller plate for meals, try not to snack like a crazy person beforehand, keep alcohol to a minimum.  Et cetera, et cetera.  It’s all about moderation!  Don’t deprive yourself though, ’cause eventually you’ll go off the deep end and go on a spree of pie and cake and ice cream and oh, no now I’m hungry.  haha, good luck!

I think it’s good to treat yourself to a cookie or two but don’t start eating the entire plate!  Also if you have time try and work out a little, even if it is just walking around the neighborhood with your family.  That’s what I did over Thanksgiving when I was visiting my dad.

I’m definitely going to try to fit in my workouts.  We’re going to be staying with my ILs, so I’m going to set my alarm and get up and go for a run in the mornings.  Also, we’re going to try to get outside and do some winter sports, so I can get some regular exercize in.  I always also let myself indulge some–but try to be smart. I don’t waste calories on stuff I really don’t like, but splurge on stuff that I really love/only get at the holidays.

I’m going to attempt to stay in control just by no full plates (aiming for half). I don’t usually eat dessert at his ext. family xmas because they usually have pie and I don’t crave that. BUT at my mom’s and grandma’s there will be chocolate desserts to my goal is one dessert tops. I also try not to snack before the meal. It helps that xmas at his house is breakfast  and then lunch will probably be homemade soup and my fmil will make it super healthy.

So I’m hoping that all these things fall into place….haha
