Hiya! I'd love to join this challenge, I'm currently recovering from shoulder surgery and, after eating what seems like the whole of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory looking to get back to a sensible weight! 🙂
(Accounting for Xmas treats 😉)
I'll be continuing on next year to get to final GW: 126
Does this all sound realistic?? I'm here for the long haul!

Holidays.. oh my. My husband & I have six children ages 12-22. They all presently live at home with us. We'll gather together for holiday meals as usual with grandparents, and some other relatives, as we're together regularly and out in public with jobs, anyway.
I do the shopping and 95% of the cooking and baking daily. Year-round I bake yeast breads, fruit breads, many cookies & pastries, pies, jams, fruit butters, and I'll try almost anything. I am also usually the hostess for holiday dinners. We always stay home for Thanksgiving & Christmas. But I make a feast for those plus New Year's Eve buffet and a New Year's Day traditional dinner. We will have likely 2-10 extra people for each.
Hopefully I can limit myself to tasting or just a bite or two! That's what works for me. That, and if I'm going to eat something sweet then to do it later at night. If I eat sweets in the morning I tend to crave more sweets, as well as more food in general, all day long. This is also true if I eat restaurant food (that's not a whole food) or a ready-made food like a corndog or potato chips and such.
There will definitely be temptations! I have to show some self-restraint and perhaps get in some walking!

I find that it can take 2 days for weight to show up on the scale after we have had a "bad" eating day.
Conversely, when we are "good" it can take awhile for the scale to catch up. That is the tricky part, not giving up when we have been "good" and don't see results right away.
See y'all in next month's thread.
