I cannot believe 2012 is almost gone. Soon, we will have the holidays upon us, and all of those temptations. There will be parties starting with Halloween, Thanksgiving, for friends and family, Christmas and then New Years. Ok, my friends let's not start 2013 with regrets, lets not look back on 2012 as not productive to our weight loss, or health goals. NO MORE EXCUSES!! What would like to be different for you in 2013? I would like to reduce my BMI from obese to overweight as my goal for the next 90 days!!

I will definitely stick to my diet even on holidays. It will be harder off course. I get sad somethimes because I know that my former lifestyle is over when I ate whatever I wanted but because of that I got really heavy. I'll make it I'm sure Smile

I agree, I stuck with it last year and did not cheat at all over the holiday season. I logged my meals and allowed for some larger meals by eating smaller meals earlier in the day. This is my lifestyle, so the holidays won't deter me. I plan to eat this way for the rest of my life - and that is simply focusing on eating mostly vegetables and avoiding empty calories. Regardless, I WILL end 2012 smaller than I started.

I ate all the holiday foods I wanted, just in reasonable portions, and made sure to compensate during the week beforehand by eating less calories.

well there are still over 3 months and plenty of time to work towards the goal. During the holidays I think it is better to enjoy the food without too many restrictions and then compensate before and after to recover the surpluses. It is certainly not 2-3 days of excessive eating that is going to have any effect on the success of a weight loss program as long as one does not take them as an excuse to binge for weeks and then months

Agree 2+ w/ sure and paperiniko. It's good to reward one self. Holidays should be enjoyable, and that includes eating some goodies one normally doesn't. The cool thing, is that I now find myself eating fewer 'goodies' when I allow myself to eat more, such as this Fall's college football saturdays. I just don't feel the need to stuff myself as i did pre-diet.
