I'm sure there have been a million of these threads, but I thought I would share my plan for Christmas and invite any advice from more experienced maintainers.
This is my first Christmas in calorie counted maintenance, so it's a new experience for me.
My plan is:
Keep Christmas eating limited to the three days of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day. After that, leftovers in the bin (sorry for the waste, but it's better off there than on my body).
Eat what I want over those three days, not count, not worry about it, but also try to avoid getting into a scarcity mindset where I have to stuff myself silly because this is my "one chance". Mindfulness.
Not weigh myself until the 27th (usually I'm a daily weigher, so last weigh in before Christmas will be morning of Christmas Eve).
If I have gone over or near to my scream weight when I weigh myself on 27th, have a few low calorie days immediately to get back into the green. However, currently I'm below my maintenance range, so if Christmas just puts me back up into my range, I'll just let it be. The point is to deal with any weight gain over my range immediately, without procrastination.
What are your plans?
