I'm trying to have a virtuous dinner tonight. It's just me, my husband, and our oldest son--both of them support my healthy weight-loss efforts.

Well, I was very bad on my vacation and at lots of goodies. However, I also was on my feet and busy the whole time so when I weighed in upon return my weight was about the same.

There are many tempting foods at this time but I am getting over a stomach flu so I have no appetite. I am having a small Christmas dinner next week and trying to think what to have that won't be a ton of food and yet pretty healthy.

Oh boy the holidays. going to my son's. Daughter in law always cooks a lot of veggies. My downfall is the stuffing, my fav. I am making cabbage rolls for my part. Its the goodies that get to me. I love cookies and fruit cake and mincemeat pie. I am stuffed just thinking about it.

Lots of water to control the urges, that does make sense.

I didn't consider drinking lots of water, I am sure that will help! I also will be making a lot of veggies and loading up on those. I have also been very careful to be at a deficit all week and pla to give away or throw out the less healthy dishes.

Last year I looked up the calorie count for the food I would normally eat at Christmas dinner. Then I made some choices that stayed closer to my calorie limit. I also kept active and as always drink lots of water - no alcohol

Well, they are almost here - so who has a good plan for dealing with them?

Last year I was terrible, gained a bunch of weight and had to spend all of January and most of February in a deficit trying to get rid of it. So I want to do better this year!

Important thing for me to remember:

It's holiDAYS not holiweeks or holimonths. It's ok to have a day or two with bad food, it's not ok to do that for six straight weeks!
