    I had followed a friend's example and lost a kg in preparation for Xmas week. I promptly put it back on after delicious times of feasting but I am now ready to lose a kg again. I am actually looking forward to eating more fruit and veg plus continuing with regular fitness regime. Happy New Year to everyone as we return to our normal activities this coming week.

    I gained 5 pounds after Christmas was back down to the higher end of my range within a few days, New Years came and up 1 pound from the top of my range. I need to get at least 3 more pound off to get to my mid range. I keep telling myself 3 is better than 30. We can do this.

    I only got home today so haven't weighed yet. Will do it first thing tomorrow. I had one week of no exercise and lots of food over Christmas itself and then went on holiday for a week - that week had lots of exercise and walking (2-3 hour bike rides and 15,000+ step days) but still lots of food and alcohol. I'm interested to see what effect it has had - I was happy for it to be a bit of a diet break anyway, but I suspect that the damage might not actually be too bad.

    Less than 3 lbs, almost all of which are gone now (4 days later). That’s much better than past years! While I did indulge and ate over maintenance several days, I finally felt in control of me appetite/calories for the whole month of December! And actually, some of the extra weight was DOMS from a really hard workout on New Year’s Eve 😄 I’m finally not sore anymore!

    I put on 6.2 pounds between December 18th and New Years day, but I'm already down 4.2 pounds since then. I probably put on like a pound and a half of actual fat that I'll have to work off, but the water weight has been coming off nicely that now that I am not overdoing it.

    Amazingly I actually lost .5 lb! I literally ate &drank all the things, was on vacay in Florida visiting fam - I guess I was more active than I realized. But I was shocked to see my scale report a loss post vacay! Lol!

    ETA: I didn’t track anything either. Just ate everything 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I gained 5 pounds but recommitted to Whole 30 for this month. No grains makes it easy to hit calorie and macro goals. And I’m exercising again. So I have lost all 5 since January 2 and looking forward to getting back in my zone. It feels good.

    Weigh in done this morning, and the damage is less than 1kg. I'll take that given I've pretty much eaten and drunk what I wanted for 2 full weeks. Being active has probably helped mitigate the damage, and I feel refreshed and ready to get back on the wagon so the break probably did me good mentally anyway.

    Up about 5 lbs and now 3 lb above my target range. I'm tightening up tracking and I'll weigh in again in 3 weeks when I generally de-bloat after my menstrual cycle.

    I'm about the same. My weight fluctuates around 2 lbs around my goal and that's where I am. Did eat and drink more many days and was super cautious when I could. Exercise every day.
    Bet you lose those 5 lbs pretty quickly.
