Just one pound off this week but that's half a stone in 2 weeks so I'm happy. Feeling motivated to keep going until Christmas - where is everyone?

I'm here grin. My weight has stabilised. I don't want to lose any more but need to tone up a bit. Problem is, my dangerous month is January; always has been, always will sad. I never overeat at Christmas itself but, for some reason immediately afterwards any self control I have goes out of the window. I'm still chuffed with my Nutribullet juicer, and one large juice seems to keep me going for most of the day and I don't get any hunger pangs. Just not going to the gym at the moment again and hate walking when it's cold. Half a stone in two weeks is amazing! Good for you. Gold star needed methinks.

Managed to get a virus ( Doctor Speak for " I have no idea why you have very bad earache , you do not have an infection. I am sure it will get better soon ")
It must have put me off my food as I have now gone back down to a reasonably acceptable weight in spite of the lack of exercise since the end of October's job . This has made me feel more motivated to approach Christmas sensibly . I am just like you Tegan ; I really have no problem with Christmas itself , but find January a nightmare month.
I just need to incorporate a bit more exercise, carry on eating wisely and lose the last two or three pounds . No problem then !

My downfall round Christmas time is cream. I love cream. But lately I've been making a lot of soup and adding cream to it in the hope that I'm getting my 'cream fix' in small doses. I'm also treating myself to a small chunk of cheese [instead of the hugs chunks I used to eat] in the evening; again not telling myself I can't eat it but that I can as long as it's in a controlled way.
