How do you manage occasions?

I'm just wondering if you really stick to plan 99% of the time (even at target) How do you manage occasions like going out, birthdays and my favourite Xmas

Although a Xmas dinner isn't bad is it bar stuffing, proper roasties etc

I mean say if you're all still firmly with SW by Xmas how will you cope with the holiday? Eat on plan until xmas eve then take a few days off to enjoy it with your family? Or one day off? Week off? Or stay 100% to plan?

For birthdays I'd just save syns and have a massive splurge! Xmas is harder, I dunno what I'd do tbh! Last Xmas was when my eating was really bad (eating 1 small meal a day) but I really pushed the boat out and just ate for about 2 weeks solid I was constantly bloated and feeling sick! I guess the good thing about Xmas diet-wise is that in the new year everyone goes on a diet, so it's easier to get back on it!

I've been on WW for the past year so whenever it's been a special occasion I've saved my weeklies for it but when it came round to Xmas I had Xmas eve, day, Boxing Day, NY eve & NY days off, all the other days I attempted to point () and luckily I managed to stay the same. I'll probably do the same this Xmas (depending what diet I'm on ) but I'm hoping to be at goal by then anyway.

That that's the thing I WILL be at goal by then and will probably just take a couple of days off. I put on 6lb over 2 weeks last xmas so ideally I'd like to go a few lb's under just in time for Xmas. At the minute I'm doing SW and doing well at it so we'll see xx

I'd be tempted to diet just before, even if you're at goal, so if you gain a few lbs it won't matter

I just eat what i like and deal with the consequences after. Its not everyday, and you need to be able to enjoy urself on such occasions.
