Try not to eat so much? Unfortunately there's nothing a message board full of teenagers can do to absolve you of responsibility to control your diet and cravings.

Well first off, RELAX
And breath . If you are truly still worried that you will loose control an gorge or overeat during the holidays then ethier talk with someone you feel you can trust and work together to support eachother in a healthy way and in a positive manner . Or you can go out on your own or with someone to the grocery store before the holidays or holiday to get your fav foods and healthy foods an use what you got as to mix an match the food and portion it into healthy portions .

And plan when you will eat what you came up with so as when the time
comes you will be prepared and not so tempted to gorge or over indulge over
junk food and you will feel more control over your choices and feel better about what your eating . Good luck!!!

In one week you cannot have gained that much weight. What I would say is to control what you put on your plate and eat only that. If you can't control it, there is not much anyone can do to help you.

But really, everyone gains weight during the holidays, and it is not that big a deal. You will be able to lose whatever you gain.

This. I'm not allowed to go into specific numbers, but if you do a little research you'll see that it is EXTREMELY unlikely that you'll gain very much at all even if you do eat a lot. The scale may jump up quite a bit, but that will be almost all water weight. Drink more water and keep your sodium intake down for a few days and that'll go away.

So just try to control what you're eating and don't worry about it so much. You'll be fine, it's only a week or two.
