Sabotaging Thought: I have to eat a lot of [this special holiday food] because I only get it once a year.

Response: There is almost no food that I can’t get, make, or buy 365 days a year. While I may traditionally only make it at this time, it doesn’t mean I can’t at other times, too! It’s simply not true that I have to eat a lot of it now because I can ALWAYS have more, whether it’s because I make it again next week or I wait and have it again next year. There’s always another time coming.
