Default SBD Countdown to the New Year

Okay, here it is, our South Beach making it through the holidays thread. I usually gain about 10 lbs through the holidays and spend the rest of the winter taking it off. This year I'm already up 10 so no room for any gain. I want to change my pattern and get back on plan right now and breeze into the new year healthy and fit.

I plan to check in here every evening and stay accountable to my goals. Knowing I will report in just might be that extra help I need to say no to unplanned eating. I'm going to start Sunday because I've got a 4 day vacation starting tomorrow. I want to set myself up for success.

My goals:
1 - write everything down! I've gotten away from that and it really makes a difference.
2 - exercise a little every day, even 10 minutes helps. I need to re-establish the habit of exercise.
3 - Starting 11/12 I'm doing at least one week of Phase 1. I will reassess at the end of the week.
4 - no unplanned eating, no eating in the car

I know I can do this! Who else is in? What are your goals?

Cyndi I love this idea!!

Goals
1 - continue training for four day cycling event in May
2 - No eating in the car or in front of the TV (second one is harder for me)
3 - If I made it and brought it to work, I will eat it
4 - only eat when hungry, not bored or anxious. If I am willing to eat veggies for
a snack than I can indulge (been eating too many off plan snacks lately

I will check in daily too. I will be honest, I am not perfect. If I slip up, I will take ownership and do better I am up 7 pounds from my ticker. Not going to change it, instead get back to 139. I would like to stay under my goal weight in 2013

Ok ok ok ok.

Goals:

1) Log all food in my Lose It app.
2) Consume ACTUAL portions (not what my stomach says is a portion.)
3) Stay out of the candy basket/vending machines at work.
4) When unable to be 100% OP (holidays are tough, especially with DH's family) eat large portions of the OP choices and very small (if any) portions of the non-OP choices.
5) Stay hydrated, drinking 8-12 glasses of water a day.

That's all I got.

Achieved all but one goal yesterday. I snacked in front of the TV. However the choice of snack was red pepper slices, celery and two TBS roasted red pepper hummus.

Yes for this thread! I'm in the same spot myself, Cyndi.

Goals:
1 - re-establish and strengthen habit of exercising daily
2 - stay committed to food journal
3 - always have meals planned for at least 1 day in advance

I like this !
My goals:
1. No grazing. Anything I eat will be served on a plate.
2. Limit coffee to one to two cups a day (had 3 today :s)
3. No eating after 8pm
4. Eat only when hungry

I really hope to do this since grazing is my major problem !

Checking in. Did fine today, resisted candy, oops need a little more water. But otherwise ok. This weekend will be interesting, as one of my besties is coming down from Chicago and staying with us. I imagine there will be eating out at restaurants, which is always a challenge.

But, one day at a time.

Oh Cyyynnndddiiiii...... How are yoooouuuuuu?

I am on vacation and all bets are off until Sunday. I didn't do any unplanned eating or eat in the car. Unfortunately it's so windy that a walk on the beach was out of the question.

Yesterday was great until the commute from he**!!!! It took us 3.5 hours to get home. Broke down and ate the emergency Halloween candy (snack size Almond Joy and 1/2 of a Reese's PB cup). We made a quick pit stop at McDonald's (only place open). Did I choose wisely......NO! Small fry and a chipolte chicken wrap, fried not grilled. Not beating myself up over it as I had not eaten fast food in probably 6 months. Today will be a good day

Cyndi enjoy your much deserved weekend!!

Resisted temptation, but still retaining water hmmmm. Maybe a few days off will get my system back to normal. How is everyone else fairing! Cyndi hope the wind dies down and you can enjoy the beach

Great Idea Cyndi - I am in! I've gained 10 since my surgery and I want to get it off (as much before cruise as possible but I plan to stay OP during it, save a few drinks) so PH1 for a week for me!

GOALS
1. Log my food here every day.
2. Not be lazy - I am home through Tuesday now so I need to cook more, prep snacks, etc.
3. In addition to my PT, go to the gym 2x more a week and swim once a week.
4. No eating after 9p and only water at that time!

UGH - I really really need to change my 'frame of mind', and can't quite get myself to do it. I think part of it is just having skinny young children that can/need higher fat foods!! A large part of my problem is to nibble before bedtime, when I'm not truly hungry. Thinking of my goals...

**not to eat past 8 pm
**drink more H2O
**stop the nibbling! I don't need a few nuggets of kid's cereal!
**dark choco is okay - but limited, Tammy!!

Two days of not eating in the car and exercising. Tomorrow food will be limited to what needs to be finished then Monday Phase 1 starts. I'm also going to start logging again tomorrow. That should be scary
