|Yay for scales|
I hope the next five weeks goes better. I still managed to lose weight over the last Christmas period so I have every chance of doing it again this time. Christmas is no reason to not lose weight. It's essentially a cheat day which doesn't have much of an effect on total weight loss. It might extend into another day or two but it won't really damage your attempts much. Keep that in mind if you're trying to lose weight over Christmas; it's entirely possible.
