Default Christmas Support Thread

We had one of these last year. This is a thread for getting general support, and for sharing problems to do with the Christmas period.

I know Christmas is one of the hardest time of the year for people with eating disorders, so I thought we could all do with extra support

My plan for this year is to cut myself a bit of slack. I normally freak out to the max if I gain weight, but I'm not going to weigh myself for the whole christmas week, and I'm going to keep telling myself that because it's christmas, it's okay if I gain a few pounds.

Kind of hoping I stick to this and it works.

I've gained 6lbs already so the idea of Christmas freaks me out a bit... you'd think after that much, I'd have calmed down a bit but no. Christmas is what I'm dreading this year for multiple reasons and eating won't help in my mind.

Really good idea for a thread. I think I'll follow Georgia's example and try to cut myself a bit of slack.

I can't really say that I have as much issue as you guys probably do, but good luck to you all.

I can usually get away with it because the dinner we have every year is so meat-heavy. I mean, that's fine as my mum will usually make something for me, but this year I have Liz with me so I think we could actually get away with just sitting there with some wine and going out later to grab something for ourselves. So at least I don't have to worry about the food :/


And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.

Ive been in "recovery" sence sept started, but I HATE the winter hoildays. They stress me out,I have social phobia and BDD so the whole time everyones at the table I feel their stairing at me. Its really hard for me to eat infront of others. But besides the point,my sister died around the winter hoildays and this year will be the first without my grandfather,that passed in march. Im afriad all the fatty foods,the stress and emotional issues surrounding the hoildays is going to make me snap and go back to the way things where,which scares me because Idunno whether id mind or not.

I'm so terrified for the christmas holidays....When I am at college I don't have to eat lunch...I can make myself eat breakfast and dinner to make my mum happy, so she doesn't worry or get angry...but I think if I am at hope and she starts trying to force me to eat lunch as well I wont cope...I'll start doing my old routine of not getting any sleep so I could exercise while they were asleep, taking diet pills so I at least wouldn't absorb all the carbs...I don't know what to do....

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a hard time with Christmas. I hate it. So, so much.

I don't have either of those, but I feel the same way. I hate eating in front of people. It freaks me out. I've been going out with my boyfriend for six months, and I've known him for 7 or 8 years, and even he's only ever seen me eat once.

Christmas dinner (in my family it's on the 24th) actually went well for me. I didn't eat as much as usual but I ate enough which is more than I wanted to so I suppose this is a good thing. One of my grandmothers is very bad when it comes to bugging the kids in the family to eat a lot so I usually try to humour her and that means eating quite a bit.

The only thing I freaked out about in the end was that I was drinking and I realized how little I know about how drinking affects my weight and it's been making me panicky. I was drinking to loosen up about the whole holiday season in general but blech...

How's everyone else doing with the holiday season so far?

I'm feeling a lot happier now actual Christmas day is over. My goal over the holidays is to just maintain my current weight and be happy with that. I don't know if I have put on weight because I took the batteries out of the scales, i'm the only one who uses them anyway. If I can remain strong I won't put them back until after new year. Hopefully. No doubt I can probably tell anyway but if I can't see it I can try and push the thought to the back of my mind. ><

We know that, but when you've got an eating disorder it's not that simple or easy. We can't just turn our feelings about food off because it's Christmas. They don't just leave.

Keep going Louise okay? You don't need your scales, and you don't need to be keeping a track of your weight 24/7. You're beautiful how you are kay? Personality and looks.

Christmas actually went very very well food wise, it didn't freak me out at all. The only problem I'm facing now is the left overs... We have so much stuff to eat, and I'm okay knowing that I've gained 2 pounds, but I don't think I could cope with gaining anymore.

I know the feeling Georgia. I've managed okay over Christmas but now there's still loads of food around and it's just not good D:

You did well not to freak out over Christmas though, you can keep going with that
