I've been a complete carby twat over last few weeks and I fear if I don't stop now I will do so much more damage between now and end of Xmas hols.. I'm not weighing myself yet as I will probably cry - my belly is hanging out my new Christmas pyjamas confused

So - I'm re-starting LC today, BC light style, for the next week (if I go full BC I might fail, at least light I can have a few drinks and nuts/85% choc)

Anyone managing to LC through the festive season? Any tips for staying on track?

So far today:
2 hb eggs & butter, leftover ham
Lunch will be leftovers but only the meat and veg
Dinner is ham carbonara with courgetti
I've had 750 water and more to come.

Thanks wombattoo!
Turns out I wasn't as committed as
I first thought blush Christmas visitors have now left so that will make it a bit easier but the house is so full of treats!! Doing my best but a few slip ups here and there. I mean well each morning but it's hard!!
See you next week. flowers

I've started over, yesterday was a fast day and today I'm low carbing so mushroom omelette for breakfast, lunchtime I had sprouts gratin, dinner I'm not sure yet but something small. Lots of water already, but considering a small baileys...

It's hard with all the stuff around isn't it! We didn't buy that much this year but I was already sick of the sight of it all by Tuesday. Dh has been going off to work with a hefty packed lunch grin

So hard being surrounded by treats and I find myself wanting to eat it all just to get rid of it!
I packed my parents off on the plane with half a Christmas cake!

And good on you for starting over Guy especially fasting that must take some willpower!

I started again on Boxing Day as was three days off and low carb is more a lifestyle choice for me. However as usual, until my body has properly adjusted i struggle and today I just want to eat all the friggen chocolate in the house. I know I've just got to stand firm and the cravings will go away, that doesn't help right now though.

Ps, try to stop calling them "treats" . That's a really bad mind set if you see food that's effectively bad for you as a " treat". Call it what it is. It's not a treat in any way shape or form.

Good point blunt, my house is full of unhealthy crap then! grin

Bluntness100 Thu 29-Dec-16 14:35:24

Well yes, you can call it that,,,that's a better mind set,,,😂

I've done it - 24 hours low carb grin phew I think there is now a chance I can keep going!

B - 2 hb eggs & butter, coffee & cream, tea and soya milk
L - LC sausages, bacon, scrambled egg and a fried egg
D - LC cottage pie with mashed swede topping
S - more coffe and cream

Anyone else doing this? I have lost weight before on LC and now need to do it again after having DC2 and Christmas and all that jazz. So I did my first full day yesterday and felt ok, feeling ok today too but it's so hard to get out of the constant snacking habit I'd got into. I am not hungry but I want to eat. blush

today so far I've had a two egg omelet with cheese, mushrooms and chorizo. Two herbal teas and a litre of water.

Off to peruse the boards for some dinner inspiration!

I'm on day 2 of LC. Today i've had

B - scrambled 2 eggs
L - 1/2 avocado and 1/2 bag of pork scratchings
D - homemade burgers with salad

The bootcamp recipe thread has some great ideas.
