For those of you who love Thanksgiving dinner there is that secret society that knows that over eating is inevitable for most people.

Just like most when it comes to turkey, stuffing, macaroni and cheese, string beans, greens, yams, dinner rolls and unmentionable desserts like chocolate cake, apple and sweet potato pies there is a serious problem when it comes to pulling away from the dinner table.

After Thanksgiving dinner is over there is the harsh reality of dealing with the extra pounds that seem to have shown up out of nowhere. Most people look in the mirror and ask themselves, "Did I really eat that much over the holiday?"

For those who deal in reality they suck it up and try to do something about their weight gain. For starters they attempt to get to a gym and start working out or they try to change up their eating habits in order to get back on track. (Salads only until Christmas)

For some others they tend to be in an unfortunate state of denial. These individuals ask others if they have gained weight and get upset with the person they have asked tells them the truth which just happens to be "YES." There have been relationships that have ended as a result of not wanting to deal reality or wanting to hear the truth. Let's face it, the truth hurts.

If you are or have been one of those people who over eats during the holidays, you are not alone. The key is to take responsibility for your actions and not to blame others. Dealing with your truth is the best way to start.

With Christmas dinner coming up there may be plenty of opportunities to over eat. The question is, will you be able to restrain yourself from over eating again?
