I do, and I think it’s awesome. Assuming you don’t live in a year round warm climate you’re not going to be wearing anything skimpy anyway, so why not indulge? I just ate 7 cookies and they were delicious. When I get home from work I’m going to plop down in front of the fireplace for a few hours and eat pizza. After that I’m going to bed without working any of it off. And you know what? My husband says my winter weight is cute.
Go on, ladies, enjoy yourselves. You deserve it!

I actually lost too much weight for my mermaid dress that I’m wearing for the February wedding. Over the holidays I tried it on and I lost a lot of my curves so I was given the green light to gain back 5-8lbs between now and Feb 1st.
BEST SITUATION EVER!

@Aquaria: LOL. I don’t try, or want to, but I definitely indulge more! I think my cheese and chocolate intake increases about 45% from summer to winter!

@skippydarling: oh no you’d better hurry up! My wedding dress kept falling down because my boobs disappeared after losing weight haha.

HAHAHAHAHAH! I have put on winter weight, unintentionally. the logic you have is perfect. I think it’s very unhealthy to go totally crazy, especially to gain a large amount, but these 5-10 pounds aren’t going to kill me.

@Aquaria: That’s freaking awesome. I don’t purposely try to gain weight, but I do purposely eat as much junk as possible, so…
trying on my wedding dress yesterday was frightening!

No. I actually put on summer weight from being home all summer & stating up late snacking.
I’m starting a strict diet tomorrow though cuz I never lost my summer pounds & put a few more on due to holiday snacking.

I definitely don’t try to put it on but I do! I usually gain some weight around the holidays and then I continue eating warm comfort food during the winter.

@Aquaria: To be honest, I’ve never really watched my weight that closely. I’ve never gone over 125 pounds, even when I try to, so I guess there’s really no point, haha. But my eating patterns don’t change during the holidays, I still eat like shit the rest of the 10 months of the year. 😛

I don’t *purposefully* put on winter weight – I just always do. I gain about 5-10lbs every winter, and then lose it by March or so. It happens every year, since I was 12. I don’t really like it, but I do think it’s a little bit funny.

Oh no, I would never purposely beef up, I’m already fat enough as is!

@Aquaria: Haha, you’re fun! 🙂 I wish I could have your relaxed attitude. I definitely put on winter weight but it’s not intentional – I blame Christmas and all the delicious food I just can’t say no to! lol

I’ve gained 5 pounds over the holidays, but it definitely wasnt intentional. If anything it motivates me to kick my butt into high gear and start exercising more.

I most certainly put on winter weight. Not intentionally…it seems like it just “happens!” I just ate a giant piece of chocolate cream pie. No guilt whatsoever. 😉

I don’t put on weight on purpose, but I tend to round out a bit naturally during this time of year, what with all the merry-making. It doesn’t concern me and I think the alternative (depriving oneself during a time for festivities) would be much sadder. And hey, hopefully it helps keep out some of the cold. I’m not a fan of feeling cold at all.
