    Exclamation Christmas: Celebrating The WeMITT Way

    I know it's quite a while away yet (21 weeks or 5 monthsish), but I can't be the only one who likes to plan early and spread the cost.

    If nothing else, it helps us get into the mind frame of not buying ridiculous amounts of rubbish and really that is what I'm scared of - reverting back to bad habits, buying rubbish and having it lasting right over to the new year so you don't even get chance to have a new start in the new year.

    Personally I'd like to lose a further 3 stone to get me to 20 stone before Christmas and I don't want to undo it all by having a few naughty bits and pieces too many and then not to be able to stop it!


    A few of my ideas off the top of my head:

    * Diet drinks for mixers (diet coke, slimline tonics etc)
    * Lighter drinks (vodka and malibu etc)
    * Home made selection boxes (fudge, crunchie, fruit pastles, freddo etc)
    * Christmas dinner - grilled chicken breast, 'clean' mash (ie without milk/butter, just done with the potato ricer, reduced salt gravy granules, larger portion of veg to fill the plate, skimmed milk in the bread sauce,
    * Weightwatchers ice cream as a pudding (77 cals each)
    * Selection of sweets from the market (they have roses/quality st too as part of the selection) rather than a tin of sweets as... well, buying the tins earlier always make you give in! Not only can we choose the ones we want, we also have a smaller amount bought nearer Christmas so no chance of sneaky eating and then replacing.
    * Weightwatchers bacon for the bacon sandwiches in the morning (they're bacon medallions with little to no fat in them)


    I'd love to hear other ideas and see if we can plot ways to make it not get one over on us

    Want to get through it with as little damage as possible (which is hard as I'm a big kid about Christmas )

    I'm going by the method that if it's not in the house then it can't be eaten! Just have to be STRONG when shopping

    I know, I'm OK with Easter but Christmas is a hard one for me too. We get two weeks across Christmas and New Year off because the college closes, and I love bundling up all warm inside with the cat, but grazing is a problem - especially all those little pastry bite things groan.....

    You and me both love!

    My Christmas Day 'tea' has always been a chicken, stuffing sandwich with a thin layer of bread sauce on the bread. All washed down with bacon rasher crisps. Has to be soft white bread too!

    I'm starting already. It's all your fault, H! :P

    Might not be actually Christmas related, but shop on a full stomach! Especially when buying nice bits for Christmas, if I ever shop hungry it makes me go a bit crazy on baddies, but if you shop when you're full, and I mean FULL!, the thought of food will make you a bit nauseous, perfect!

    I've got to admit though, I'm a typical Christmas pig, I use the "it's Christmas!" excuse far too much!

    Me too! It's all so easy to carry it on afterwards isn't it. I'm going to use the fact that I don't really like new year (but adore Christmas like a kid) to just buy for Christmas and Christmas alone ("better" choices - not perfect but "better. You do have to have a break and a treat after all. Also smaller amounts bought on a full stomach (good thinking!) so when it's gone - it's gone!

    I realised it by accident after going shopping once straight after dinner (normally went Sunday before lunch!) and was so full I was like "erugh, get what I need and leave" was odd not coming home with pringles and dips etc, also my wallet was glad!!

    My Christmas "strategy", for the three years I've been doing this, is to allow myself just 3 or 4 days of total, unrestrained piggery, lol. I eat whatever I want, trying my best not to mentally add up the calories. Then I invariably feel so ill from all the sugar that I'm practically longing to get back to restrictive eating when my off-plan days are over - it's worked well for me so far, it's like a sort of aversion therapy! xx

    I guess since I'm on Dukan's diet I guess Christmas for me won't be to bad. I'll have bacon and eggs, maybe with some salmon also depending on the mood I'm in. Dinner will be turkey no skin and veg, no potato, stuffing, Yorkshires pudding or extra trimmings, unless I go for an option of a celebration meal, then it would be ok I guess. I generally never had tea that day as I'm so full, but might make OH some tea if he wants some. Otherwise yogurt with oatbran.

    Or I could do what Tracy does as that sounds yummy!

    I must admit, after 'clean' eating it's a struggle for your body to feel like it's usual self after the junk food avalanche

    Kinda miss it when not 'allowed' it, and then can't wait to stop after
