Of course, there's a fly in the ointment

The whole decision process talked about here is happening through December 2006.

This all assumes that I'm not going to put on any weight over Christmas. Since we basically have a Weight Watchers friendly Christmas anyways, we don't have too much stuff piled around. The challenges:

1) The pre-Christmas party. Lots of nibbly stuff.

2) Christmas Day. Turkey dinner should be too bad if I don't pile on too much turkey. We cook healthy roast potatoes and stuff anyways - the traditional ones are just too greasy. No problem. OK, the half a bottle of Bellini, 3/4 bottle wine, 2 Gin and Tonics and most of a 1/2 bottle of dessert wine have a few points, but I didn't significantly better than the poster around luncthime on the WW message boards who was already up to 80 points.

3) Family get together on 27th. No control over menu.

4) New Year's Eve. Starting the new year with a hangover is a tradition, and I don't expect this year to be much different.

Apart from those 4 occasions, it should be pretty much on the straight and narrow.
