Well my goal for this holiday season was not to gain any weight. I didn't even concern setting a goal to lose this week because this is a lifestyle change and I didn't want to count calories during celebrations. But after last night and today, I may need to reconsider. Having eating reduced fat and sodium foods for the last month, I feel sick eating so much fat and sodium. It tasted so good but the after effects were not good. Next time I think it would be wise to remake some of my favorite traditional foods to healthier recipes.

I also want to figure out why when I decide not to count calories then I overeat so much instead of moderately eating my favorites. ????

    I measure instead of counting calories - and am on a specific food plan. During vacation I had to "eyeball" instead of measure, and I know I was off at most meals. But I stuck to the plan as closely as I could (a few "cheats" that I planned were in there.) and the scale was friendly when we got back home. (My DH complained about how much he had gained....)

I am considering this a life change, so I don't want to jump off the plan...just simplify or modify when I want to - for me it's in the planning.

    I agree with you that when we throw caution to the wind, we end of further beind in our goals. I have been on vacation for two weeks and I came home heavier and feeling yucky today. I have got to get back on track.

    I think when we decide not to count calories we forget to pay attention to portion sizes and the number of calories we consumed from one meal to the next. Due to health issues I am not able to not track everything that goes into my mouth.
Best of luck to you as you continue to listen to your body.
