hahahaha Dore, I always try to drink some water every 30 mins to help keep me feeling full although it is annoying to be up in the night so much emoticon

Gosh Sue - not fair. I don't have even one grocery store here that delivers food. Have to head to the store myself.

I plan to drink lots of water myself. It helps me to get past all the food. (besides, while residing in the bathroom, I can't eat all the food) LOL

Stay focused on the end goal.

I have already made the lists for the meals for the 3 days that will be tricky and made good choices and arranged a shopping delivery Christmas week so I haven't even gone into the store to get tempted..lol

For the events I have some control over I am making sure that I am taking in healthy foods. Water is the beverage of choice.

This year I am not baking because my oven is broken. That means I won't be eating the "burnt" cookies or baking the breads that I usually give away. I have had some very disappointed friends but there are other ways to bless people than with food.

Staying focused on the goal.

Isn't it funny how at work, people always take cakes in for birthdays and special occasions and yet 90% of us wish the temptation wasn't there? If only someone was brave enough to go in with a fruit basket, bet everyone would be thrilled..lol..strange how these things start

Thanks, Sue, for the helpful hints. That pretty much covers everything I try to do. I know that from now til Christmas the weekends are going to be busy and food filled so I try to keep on track and get in as much exercise as I can in between. Yesterday didn't go as well as I wanted. the staff room at work was LOADED with goodies. But today's another day and I shall try to go in there stronger than I was yesterday! I just need to keep thinking of the 10 lbs. I need to lose so my snowshoes will easier to use!!

Christmas is a tricky time with all the extra food and temptations. how will you minimise the damage?

Just DH and myself for Christmas Day but the day after we have 7 of us here. I am able to control the menu so am trying to make favourites and make them lower cal. Lots of meat and fish, veggies and fruit, but if we have mince pies and sausage rolls just use half the usual amount of pastry. If we get a cake or gateau, make sure it goes home with the others..lol both my sons can eat and not gain, I just have to save a little for dh..lol


I know it is harder if you go somewhere else as no-one wants to offend the hostess, but she probably feels the same as you do so maybe saying something like, "I will try a little of this but may come back for that later". Fill your plate up with the low cal stuff and just a little of the other. If you can't trust yourself get someone else to fill your plate and tell them exactly what you want. Drink a large glass of water 30 minutes before you eat to help fill you up, and if you drink alcholol, have a glass of water between each alcholic drink
Let us know what you do?
