Week 254

1.6lb gain.

Now that's not bad at all!

Ok, complete blow outs on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, but on the week running up, I was pretty good.

However, experience has shown that the biggest weight gain is often in the week following Christmas, as resolve has been weakened, sugar levels are now all over the place, and the house is still stuffed full of goodies you couldn't bring yourself to throw away.

The intention is to try and be back on track this week, with only the occasional minor treat - something nice with the coffee type of thing - but really try and keep off the excess until New Year's Day. Blow out on that day only, and be back on track by Jan 2nd.

If we can do it, this will be a major step forward from the annual problem of feeling it's not worth trying to contain anything until after new year. But if we can keep the weight gain to only 2 or 3 pounds, then that is considerably better than putting on 8 to 10 or more.

Hope you all had a great Christmas. Wishing you all the very best for the new year and decade :)

I wish I'd put on 1.6lbs, mine is more like 8lbs( at least), and I haven't weighed myself for a few days either. Roads too icy to get on my bike and house full of goodies & beer is a bad combination.

So well done.

Lee - 8lbs has always been a typical amount for me to put on over Christmas. It's taken years to develop strategies to cope with this time of year, and this, I would sy, is the first time we've been truly successful
