Anyone want to minimise the damage with me?

Since June I have lost 62lbs, ideally I need to lose the same again next year. While the gym, swimming and a good diet have improved my metabolism somewhat I can still gain 5lbs just from sniffing a bowl of chocolates.

I am currently 14 St 5lbs. I want to enjoy my nights out, I want to have some christmas nibbles, I just don't want to put on a stone by January 1st!!

My goal is to still be the same weight I am today in 4 weeks time. I am going to indulge in nice things and pass on the automated snacking that always seems to get me at this time of year. I also aim to keep up the exercise as much as school holidays will allow. At least that's the plan. Then I'll be all ready to start losing again from 1st January.

Anyone with me??

Yeah, me! I was on another thread with you too! I've lost just over a stone and a half since September I think. And I can't just eat all the cheese and pastry and end up back where I was.

I actually don't think I can snack much at all, as once I have started I really cannot stop.
I'm not a non-drinker, but I have not had a drink in aaaages and I don't miss it, so will carry on as I am. Not too worried about a Xmas dinner blowout either.

But I can't buy anymore mini stollen, as I just inhale them, on my own.

62lbs is amazing! !

Hi zebra. Hmmm cheese, I think one of my cheats has to be baked Camembert and crusty bread. Maybe I should make a list of treats I do want, it might stop me snacking on ones I'm not bothered about!

I haven't done too bad today, said no to a mince pie and cream at lunch which I could have eaten for the sake of it. I also went to the gym and swimming.

my advice is to stick to one rule: eat only at the dinner table. That cuts out mindless snacking but allows you to eat what you like.

That's my intention anyway wink

I'm joining.
15kg to lose but happy with maintenance/minimal loss in Dec.
No snacking is a good rule. Or choosing the ones you really want.
Im hoping to up the exercise as I will have a bit more time over the holidays.

I'm in! Hoping to lose over the next couple of weeks, but the combination of Christmas and my birthday could undo all the good I've done so far easily.

It. Must. Not. Happen.

Great idea for a thread, thanks smile

Hmm, well my minimising hasn't got off to the greatest of starts, but I am back on it now.
And no more stollen will enter this house. No lebkuchen either. I can't be trusted with them it seems.
I hate mince pies tho, so my family are allowed them.

I'd really like to join this thread. I'm not really losing weight but have very recently been eating much more healthily and I don't want to ruin it. I have the obligatory christmas meet ups to manage - in fact today I am supposed to be having coffee and cake with a friend this morning, coffee with another friend this afternoon and having three courses out tonight! But pre ordering means I've chosen two out of three 'light' options. I'm going to minimise the damage today by having tea instead of coffee this morning, sharing my cake with dd ant not drinking this evening. And going for a run AND a swim this afternoon in between it all.

I'd really like to post here when sorely tempted. I'll be posting a lot grin and will let you know how I got on today if I can raise myself from tomorrow's food-induced coma
