I’ve already kicked into full gear for this month as far as eating clean and working out in preparation for going home to visit my parents for Thanksgiving. I will be there for FIVE days and since it’s one of the only times to eat my parents’ cooking a year (they cook Asian food not available in restaurants), I’m not sure I can avoid eating it haha! Not to mention there is tons of good BBQ and fried chicken back home not available where I currently live hehe.
What are your plans for combating weight gain during the holidays?
My plan is to eat healthy at any non-parent cooked meals and work out like crazy when I’m home. I just don’t think I can do portion control when it comes to their food haha 🙂

@rawrrawr I have just lost about twenty pounds, and I am really hoping to maintain my weight through the holidays!!! I seriously love the holidays, and I tend to eat way too much. I have used cheat days during my weight loss, so I have picked four days in November, and five in December ahead of time, so I know what days I can be more lenient on and eat a little more than I usually do. If I can maintain my weight, then I’ll be happy!!

@rawrrawr: I am currently counting calories (1200/day). I eat stuff like quinoa, chicken breast or ground turkey, non-fat yogurt, etc. I started October 24 and have lost 4 lbs. Hoping to lose at least 6 more before Thanksgiving. I also walk 30 mins a day (when I take my dog out).

I was the lowest I’d been in the last five years when I gained 5 lbs just from Christmas cookies last year… ugh! It’s so darn tough during the holidays!
