    Excellent. I really don't see the need for all this fuss of eating different on one day.

    As much as possible, my strategy in all things Christmas is to ignore it altogether.

    I'll eat what I want but log it. I don't go overboard at the holidays, but I am not going to feel guilty if I eat a piece of chocolate or a piece of pie. I've started marathon training, so I know I'll burn it all off over the next few months.

    A - I was thinking about this, and really, dinners like Christmas dinner only happen so often. I am not going to stress myself out over it, but I also won't go way overboard either. Realistically, everything is higher calorie at Christmas, haha ... even wine is high calorie.
    I also don't want to stress others out by logging food. Everyone is self-conscious around the holidays.

    I wasn't planning to spend over 3 hours on a treadmill today, but my pants were tight this morning.

    I never stop tracking, even if I’m eating at or above maintenance. Logging it, owning it, and moving on is my key to success

    Came in about 1,000 over maintenance, but walked 10 miles this morning. Hoping it’ll be a wash. The cookies were ridiculously good.

    I'm eating at maintenance and tracking mainly carbs for the sake of watching my blood sugar (diabetic), I won't worry if my portions of meats and fats are too big. Also Christmas Eve and Christmas are planned rest days, and I did an extra long workout on the day before.

    B and C. I’m tracking, but eating pretty much what I want, within reason.

    Tracking into the red. But soon the persimmon pudding and eggnog will be gone and it'll be back to normal.

    A for Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. I will be disciplined the rest of the time (500 calorie deficit). Rough calculations tells me I ate 200-300 over maintenance today.

    Its xmas day in the uk. Had a few nuts and choccies last night with wine but wasnt too much over my usual 2000 calories as it was off set with 2 walks. Ive already walked the dog and plan another 1 hour walk but i will be enjoying my lunch and not skimping too much today, after my woosh 2 lbs of water weight have gone on, its not fat as once i would have thought because i know for a fact ive never pigged out.so im learning !!

    Im still on track, just a wee bit huffed about those 2lbs , but overall 18lbs down .8 to go

    First of all, Merry Christmas! I'm going to try for B. It'll be starting for me with gourmetting tonight (as in the meal where you all sit around a table with lots of small food on the table and a stone grill in the middle, where you prepare whatever you want on). Going to try to use portion control to keep to maintenance. Tomorrow is a full day of festivities and it'll be harder to not overeat. I love Christmas though, so I'm not going to stress over it all. The 27th it's back to business as usual.

    I always do A for major holidays. I take the day off from logging. No big deal.
