Here is another tip that will help you to listen to the messges that your body is trying to send!!!
Some of my clients tell me that they purposely purchase loose clothes or clothes with adjustable waistbands so that they will not feel as uncomfortable. In effect, they are planning to overeat. As much as possible, make sure that any clothes that you plan to wear during the holiday season fit well (are snug at the waist). You should still feel comfortable after eating until you are full but you might well feel uncomfortable if you eat until you are stuffed.
