    Im going to go between the 2. Im not planning on counting my points but Im not planning on using it as an excuse to pig out.

    I dont tend to have breakfast but will have the traditional rolls & salmon for lunch. Dinner will be a nice starter (probably low fat), turkey, potatoes, gravy etc followed by a low fat dessert. Probably have a mince pie with my coffee but thatll be it.

    Im not going to count things but by the same token Im not going to let one day ruin my week/months work. I plan the same for New Years Day too :)

    Depends what you eat and drink. Tesco & Icelands party foods are fab and a lot of them are half a point each or half a point for a couple. If you bought in some of them, you could easily nibble on them.

    And most drinks can be pointed too.

    I just know I personally am not prepared to undo all my hard work for a couple of days, its just not worth it

    Hi All,

    I don't really know what to do....but I am going to plan it right now as I write this reply...
    Here goes:
    Christmas eve: Stick to points as normal - will be hard as OH likes to pig out on xmas eve
    Christmas Day: I am working 10-6, so I am going to have something very low fat during the day, not count the points, because that is pointless (!) when I can't count them in the evening, but I am going to have not much at all during that day, then in the evening, I am going to my parents with my OH and will have the full Christmas dinner and pudding and not worry about the points.....but at least I will not have been pigging all day....
    Boxing Day: I am going to a posh pub in the country for dinner with OH's family, my menu choices are: Crispy shredded duck with a chilli sauce for starter, haddock fillet for main and Baileys Creme Brulee for dessert.....I will eat this, and then in the evening, try to have nothing, or something small......
    New years Eve: We are having friends round for nibbles and drinks and fireworks, so I was planning to get some Iceland party food....and will have wine, but not go overboard....this is the only day that I am planning on drinking over the xmas period........I will not count the points on this day either....
    New years day: Probably dinner at my parents house....will probably be lasagne, so I will have less lasagne and more salad, and hope to be okay.......

    Thats it.....

    Lets hope with this, that there can be no gains, and only maintains! But somehow I doubt it......

    Every man and there dog will be on a diet come 2nd Jan won't they?? Every year the minute all the junk has gone from the shelves it is replaced by exercise equipment and magazines full of how to lose a stone in a week.....

    Anyway....whatever you do, enjoy yourselves and be safe in the knowledge that no one can be as bad as my OH, who one year put on 3 stone in one week over christmas....I did not know him then, so cannot verify if this is true, but he swears to me that it is, I am dubious, but he does like his food over xmas bless him........
