    Just wondering what everyones plan is???

    I was going to re-feed the week before.... but at that point i will still be a stone or two from goal.....

    So i'm thinking if i re-feed am i more likely to eat all week/carry on eating than if i just came off and ate Christmas day.... I have plans with my OH New year also.... which leaves that week in between that i would be eating, starting again the 1st Jan....

    Would i just be better eating the two days but staying 100% Other than that..... As the habit of LT will still be reasonably fresh..... What are your plans???

    My challenge Dee, is that if I continue losing as I am, I will be at my goal weight by 1st Jan. So I have a similar dilemma. Christmas week to New Year has always been a 'pig out on the wrong things' kind of week for me and so I may refeed that week with 2 shakes and a meal, so that when all the healthy push for the New Year comes along, I can jump right into that. It's interesting that you are thinking ahead already though (just as I have been). If you still have a bit of weight left to lose, I don't suppose it will be easy to know what's best. I think you need to consider that with a smallish amount left to go, that you might be one of the 90 odd percent at that point who would find it hard to get back on to 100% (I know you did it before after your hols, but like you said, it was easy then because you felt you still had a lot to lose). This is not an easy one... will be interesting to see what other people are planning to do xx

    I am going to have a re feed week the week before Xmas, and to be honest I will be enjoying Christmas eve, day & boxing day how I like. I just can't see me surviving those days without my dinner and my treats. I'm not going to deprive myself but I intend on doing plenty of walking during that period. Hope this helps x
