One pound = 3500 calories
There's no way you'll gain a pound on Christmas. Giving in to a cookie or a slice of cake won't do that to you. Treat yourself!
Remind yourself of how far you've gotten.
I don't care if you've just started your journey to health or if you've been working towards your goal for a year. You've made some kind of progress, whether it's on the scale or not. So remember that you earned a treat.
Remember, it's only one day.
It's one day. One freaking dessert. There is no reason to beat yourself up about it. Workout of course, but remember that you're a human. Do you think Jillian Michaels forces herself to not eat those tasty treats? No. She eats them. You can too.
Pounds = inches
Just because the scale says you went from 159 lbs. to 161 lbs. doesn't mean you gained two pounds. And even if you did, no one will notice. Don't freak out, because you can't lose 2 pounds over night anyways. It all takes time.
The unhealthy route is never an option. EVER.
I don't know if you know this, but I know that there are a lot of blogs that promote being anorexic or bulimic, or any way that makes the number on your scale go down. You might be convinced that you will be able to lose weight that way, but you won't. You'll get unhealthy. Really badly unhealthy. If you starve yourself (anorexia), your body will begin to think that it's starving, and will hold on to every gram of fat it can get. If you make yourself throw up (bulimia), the enamel on your teeth can get messed up, your organs could get damaged, and there are so many other downsides to doing these things to your body. The only real way to lose weight, and keep it off, is to eat right, workout, sleep, and drink water...lots of it.
