Making a Holiday Plan

I made my October weigh in last Sunday. I was a good 1 lb under, but I was wearing shorts and hadn't eaten yet that day. No major spikes in October though; I was within shouting distance of 172 morning weight all month.

I'd kinda like to see a weight that starts '16'. 169 would be good enough. It's a nice idea, but it would take something resembling real effort, and it would just be wasted with the holidays coming up. It'll have to wait.

Holiday Plan
1) Weigh in sometime before Thanksgiving
2) Eat like a drunken sailor on leave on Thanksgiving
3) Try to return to goal weight by mid-Dec. The longer I wait the better
4) After December weigh-in, throw all caution to the wind and eat like I am fattening up for nuclear winter.
5) Jan 15 -- asses damage

It's not the healthiest plan in the world, but it is ... honest.

A drunken sailor fattening up for nuclear winter, that's a rather horrid picture. Somehow I can't erase the image of him hurling it all overboard.
Is your body still equipped for such massive eating? In any case,
enjoy . . .

Please tell me you meant 5) assess damage. If not... ouch!

I've got to be more cautious this Xmas. I thought it wouldn't be a problem last year and that come January I would continue the downward trend, but this whole year has been as much as battle as last year, only this time I've only lost about 18lbs rather than 75.

I fear I can't risk another 7lb gain because it could take all year to lose it.

The last time I visited my sister I gained 10 pounds in 5 days. I'm determined not to let that happen this time, so I'm going to cook my own low-carb dishes so I won't have as much trouble passing up the potatoes and pies and such.

That's Thanksgiving. Christmas will be at home and I'll be in control of what I eat.
