I in the process of losing weight, and this time of year is awful. I don't crave sweets that much, but when there is a buffet of varitable sugary treats in front of me, it's like I can't keep away. My tricks: I am always ready to leave the room when willpower is weak. I plan on keeping fizzy water around as a beverage choice. I also have to tell myself that this stuff is readily available all year round, and I don't HAVE to eat it now - I could go buy it at a later date if I wanted it! (except for peppermint ice cream - my fav!) I also plan on adding extra workouts through the holiday. I usually take the weekends off, but I think I'll add a weekend workout or two, and try doing calastenics in the evening at home. It will be a tough couple of weeks!

you missed one (in my opinion) -- don't beat yourself up if you have one cocktail too many or put some whipped cream on your cocoa.
