Just having a bit of a quandry.....What should I do at Christimas??

I have a devil on one shoulder telling me to eat eat and eat and I have an angel on the other shoulder telling me it is only one day and I will have to do this diet for even looooooonger!!

By Christmas I hope to be just a couple of stone from my target weight and I know that if I do indulge in some lovely festive food my weight could potentially increase by a stone over that short period!!

The trouble is Christmas dinner is at my house and I don't know if I have enough will power to cook for 10 people and have a shake or if I do AAM some turkey and veg!

What are all you Soul Sourcers planning?

I'm having xmas day off for sure! By then I doubt I will want alot anyway and planning on having shake at 12 as normal and then xmas dinner later on. Wouldn't be xmas day without xmas dinner! :D
I'm definitely giving myself a couple of days off over Christmas! christmas is my fav part of the year, and part of that is the food. I'm not going to go nearly as mad as I normally do, but I'm certainly not going to feel guilty for Christmas dinner, pud and cake! so there! lol
I haven't decided what to do yet. I was hoping to be at goal for Christmas but unless miracles do happen that won't be happening now :rolleyes:

I will probably have the day off from SS but just be careful what I eat. Christmas dinner is my favourite meal though so it will be tricky! Mind you, the bit I enjoy most is all the veg, so I don't suppose that is tooo bad :)
:)Im definately having xmas dinner, having one shake in the morning then turkey and veg and maybe a small piece of pudding or oe of my shakes frozen!! then SSing the week between xmas and new year, then plan on first footing but no drinking but shaking then i might drink on the 2nd of january! But if im invited out for a meal over xmas i will probably go to that aswell but again mini portions of protein and veg (no carbs).................golly you have me all excited for xmas now!!:)
How much are people planning on losing in the 7 weeks from now till xmas??? Im going to work so hard and aim to lose 2stone!! So i think i will deserve a meal for that!!

Loving the Cambridge Diet
Am on 790 so am planning on a normal-ish CD day - having the turkey dinner and a small piece of Christmas pudding and that's it!

It is only one day!
thanks for all the replies...

that is what I was thinking of doing...but i looooooooooove roast potatoes! I can just hear my family telling me off for not eating my Crimbo dinner!

I keep saying to myself it is only one day and food is just something you taste for a few seconds (but it does taste very good!!!!)

to be fair tho im a bit silly when it comes to this diet!coming off for crimbo is probably the right thing to do!i just get addicted to things!1 day wont do much!i just think if i get a taste for them things i mite not be able to stick with it when its over!!

1 thing i thought about the other day...im 21 and have an advent calender every year!this will be my first not having one which is quite sad!!!xxx
i wont be eating over christmas, i know that if i do i wont be able to go back to abstinance. For me its easier not to have anything than a 'small bit' of what i like, i can never stop at 'a small bit'

It was coming off for a "normal" xmas dinner last year that led to me coming off CD gaining my weight back on. Which is why I am restarting monday. Id say...if you have a determination of steel stick to your SS or whatever your doing, planning an AAM week for xmas would be best I think. Id hate for anyone to do what I did and ruin it all - mind you doesnt take much for the munchie devils to tempt me :rolleyes:
I also ruined my SS a few years ago when I came off it for Christmas. I never really got back into it properly.

I just wish it wasn't Christmas in 7 weeks time, I wish it was 7 months time :(

I know I'm going to find it hard, whatever I decide to do. The kids will have chocolate and goodies everywhere and I really miss it.

I just love eating :mad:
