The other suggestion is to make sure you don't over eat.. It's SOOOO easy to do that while on vacation and at a company function to boot.. You're literally surrounded by food..
You are in the midst of the hardest part of any diet.. The first few days SUCK.. It's so easy to fall off the wagon. But imagine this...
You come home from the weekend and bask in the glory of knowing that YOU stuck to your guns and stayed on plan.. You overcame the temptation and made the best of what food you were offered.. Those are what we call non-scale-victories (NSV's) and they feel great.. They are a total mind/mood boost.. Even if the scale doesn't move much because of your actions, you reaffirm to yourself that YOU CAN DO IT!!
While you're out and about with your family during the vacation, they need to know that you have no intention of screwing up this diet you're paying a lot of cash to participate in and as such, they need to make good food choices too in support of your efforts..
Now go forth and have fun!!!!
Ditto what Dan said.
I actually lost weight over both Thanksgiving and X-mas, the tricks I followed was eating the turkey without skin and loading up on the veggies. I was not POP, but I avoided the starches and stuck with my gut eating. You're still learning portion sizes, but you'll get them downpacked in no time.
Anyway, a challenge is a good start for your mind and body.
