Christmas Challenge: Maintain (or Lose) over the Holiday

Anybody want to challenge themselves to at least maintain their current (or pre-Thanksgiving) weight through Christmas and New Years?

My weight jumped up nearly a stone over Thanksgiving weekend (ie. Wednesday through Sunday). I will assume most of that is water retention, but nevertheless, I wish to get back down to my pre-Thanksgiving weight and then maintain that until final weigh in week (the week of Jan 2) at which time I will resume weight loss efforts.

Well, I've lost 4.8 of the pounds I gained. Working my way back down to my pre-Thanksgiving weight.

Apparently, I am in this challenge by myself, lol. But I'm now within 4 pounds of my pre-Thanksgiving weight. I'm really, REALLY trying to get back to it by Christmas Eve, so crossing my fingers that I will not give in to the super strong urge to snack.
