Holiday Snacks

I have a tough time staying away from trays of treats during the holidays.  I haven't really found a trick to help yet.  I just have to keep telling myself that I'm not really hungry.  I have found drinking more water helps.  And if you are drinking alcohol, then don't eat at all.  The two don't mix well.

be brave enought to go without

My fight is an emotional one.  I eat because I want to - not because I"m hungry.  It helps to know we are not alone.  If we get together for any reason, we bring food.  Birthday - bring food. Wedding - bring food. Christmas - bring food.  Sad - eat; happy - eat; mad - eat. etc.... 

Try getting together without bring snacks.  Leave the kitchen until you feel full. 

Any ideas out there?
