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.

You are what you make yourself. Your motivation is yourself. What you want is your motivation for losing weight. This comes from within. Apparently someone mentioned to me there is no such thing as will power. The power is YOU.

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!
