Hi Mandy,

I like your thinking, I to am working towards the festive season.

It is doable( is that a word lol) and no pressure just steady eating, exercise and good choices.

Let's all do it 🍸

Good steady, achievable aim. You have my head in a whirl with your list! Is it really only 105 days to 2016.? Crickey. 😊

Hi Mandy,

Wow, just 10 weeks - I did wonder how long it was. Like you say, plenty of time to make some differences weight-wise and measurement wise. Best of luck! You've set yourself a really good goal to lose 1 pound each week.

I see a few people have mentioned staying away from Selection Boxes - good idea! In previous years I have bought some as gifts, and ended up eating them myself, and then having to re-buy more.

Thankfully I've changed my ways!

Also, having chocolate decorations on the Christmas tree is definitely not a good idea - at least for me!

Oh Lowcal - I know what you mean about the chocolate Xmas decorations. I hide them at the top of the tree "to keep them away from the dog" when actually I mean "keep them away from my 8 year old daughter so that I can scoff the lot when she is at school" - does that make me a really bad mum !!? :-)
