THINGS I'M NOT INVITING TO THE THANKSGIVING TABLE

  1. Fat talk
    Be it in my own head or out loud. It accomplishes nothing, annoys and worries those around me and gives my eating disorder power.
  2. Restriction
    I shall enjoy my meal without depriving myself. I will partake of things I enjoy be they vegetables or pie.
  3. Food judgements
    No food is good or bad. Food is simply food. I will not categorize as one food as good and one food as bad. I will not categorize foods as safe and unsafe.
  4. Diet talk
    I am almost 100% certain this won't occur at my thanksgiving since my family has taken a lot of time to be EDucated but if it does I will politely ask for the subject to be changed.
  5. Calories
    I will not check or count calories. I will ask if need be that these discussion not be spoken of around me.
  6. Guilt
    This one is the most important. I likely will feel full after my meal. I will not let myself feel guilty for participating in a tradition with family. I will remind myself that I made a choice for recovery and that is a choice for life.
