Yesterday's upswing really was a fluke - no reason at all. Today's however, is probably due to two things : I had pho soup (no noodles) for dinner, and the broth was really sweet so I know it had sugar in it and probably quite a bit. That's off the list of "safe-ish" places to eat out now... And the arrival of Truffle Brie at the cheesemonger's yesterday. Delicious delicious and so special, only around for about 2 weeks, terribly expensive and frankly over-indulged in yesterday. So between the soup and the excess cheese no surprise to the the scale up. Soup is done and over, the cheese however will continue to be a challenge the next few days. We may or may not be leaving on our trip today (toddler has a bit of a sick tummy and we are not keen to handle that in the car! - so we're waiting a few extra hours to see if things settle down before leaving).

Smith... Funny how ways of eating surprise people (your sister). I am glad she tried the way of eating and has lost. It is always tough to get people to be open minded about certain things (diets especially - my mom has given me a hard time EVERY TIME I do Atkins and tries to dimish it and then sabotagued me... this time, however, I stood my ground and told her it worked for me.. maybe not her.. ((tho it would)) but to please respect my choice - She still says the wrong things sometimes.. but not an all out attack anymore!)

Using Eggplant for the lasagna layers sounds wonderful! and lower carb! :) Good for you and noone will even notice! :)

Actually, I think I'm doing quite well, and think the same for Sue and pixicat. I honk anyone who stays engaged and working on it over the holidays is doing FABULOUS, far better than most people, and frankly better than ourselves in prior years.

Is my scale up a couple of pounds over my pre-Christmas whoosh? Yeah, but that's not the big deal. The big deal is that I stopped my holiday overages on the 25th.

quite right sarahinparis! This is the month I have always fallen off track and stayed off track til march or april, but I stayed strong, had 24 hours of off plan eating and went right back on plan on the 26th. With that comes water weight, it'll flush off and it may even take a new lb or two with it.

Hmmm - have been back on low carb since Thursday, but eating more food, in particular more protein and more cheese than usual. And not tracking. Will cut cheese after 1/1 for a week or more and also go back to tracking.

Success yesterday having a Christmas dinner at my mother-in-law's without high-carb deviations. Plan to do the same for New Year's Eve, although it will be higher in calories/protein/cheese than usual.

WELL HOORAY for me... Lowest weight since 1/6/13... so far! OH I might just get 1/2 way by the 6th... 3.8 more lbs.. cdan I do it! If I set my mind to it I CAN! :)

There are more challenges this time of year for sure. Yesterday had a lovely and low carb lunch with a good friend while my husband generously watched the babies but it was at an Asian place and very high sodium (and maybe some hidden sugars in the soup) and so my weight is again the same. Tonight will be too much low carb foods, don't expect weight to go down at all.

sadly my body likes it right here! Maybe more will flush off for New Years, or I may bump up more, we ate out last night. I had a lamb burger with no bun and broccoli with butter and we had some deviled eggs as our appetizer so I was OP but sodium may rear its head

Last night was low carb but plenty of cheese and whipped cream and a big plate of berries was my only indulgence that wasn't low carb. Calories were high, and I'm sure the cream and cheese and carbs from the fruit will have a scale impact for a few days. Today's New Year lunch we hosted, so I was in control of the food, but again a but too much cheese, whipped cream and berries. Now the berries go to my kids, the cheese is back in the cheese box, and I'm seriously considering throwing the remaining whipping cream down the sink because otherwise I'll be the one to consume it...

I suppose either today's weight or tomorrow's will be the final say on what the holidays brought. A couple of pounds, no big deal, and I got back on the low-carb path after the 25th (after a 3 day detour, which was excessive but I never totally checked out and ate crazily). Last couple of days have been strictly low carb just high calories, which in the past has translated to a stable weight, maybe a pound or two up. Again, for the peace of mind it gave me to be indulging in "my" food while everyone around me had theirs, that's totally worth it.

wannaskip you will not win this challenge….only ½ a kilo away but that takes a week of stong-willed dieting to get of.. haha. now, me :dizzy::dizzy::dizzy:

well, i've been OP badly. in the middle of the night. i got up last night and at 2 spong finger biscuits and a huge spoonful of low fat ice cream! before i went to bed i had 6 slices of watermelon and a heap of cherries and i fell asleep BLOATED AGAIN ohhhhh me oh my. :(:(:(

no. the trouble was, as i talked with my DH about it, was CALORIE AMNESIA! :(:(:(

i forgot i had decided to do the INTENSIVE phase of my diet!!!!! so i ate ham, prawns and salad for dinner, before completely ruining myself on the fruit, and mid-morning feast!!!!!

no more.

enough. i WILL win this challengs, wannaskip you had better watch out i'm chugging along…..i will not weigh myself again until , well you said SUNDAY so i'll do SUNDAY because you are. hang on, sunday is different for us ..you know, the time zones. i get there before you i think. :dizzy::dizzy::dizzy:
it's thursday 10.30 am now.what time do you make it?

anyway, happy new year again, friends. here's hoping you can get back OP with mew. xmas/new year yummy foods really messed with me. i'm not in control yet…food still controls me unfortunately. that's whsay i must go through ALL the optifast phases properly, so it teaches me how to approach food sensibly. :p:p:p

all i can say is, thank god the cherries are gone. :hug::hug::hug:

but what about the nougat? and the fruitcake my mother made? and the ice cream? and the biscuits? ohhhh. i think i'll make more cofffee.

NYE celebrations put me back to needing to lose the water weight! Lots of coffee planned for today. Also cleaning, that burns calories, I wrecked the kitchen cooking on New Years, and drinking, cooking while drinking seems to equal me making a huge mess. We were lazy yesterday and ordered pizza instead of cleaning lol.
