Help! Ideas needed

Ok, so first off, I have to pat myself on the back! Christmas went pretty dang well, if I do say so myself! Hubs gorged on sugar-free candy which just made him sick (serves him right!) and I tried very hard to enjoy "regular" dark chocolate. I got a bunch of stuff that is more like 60%. It was not good. So-- good for me -- I gave the rest of it away to the in-laws' extended family. And we saw our very own Christmas miracle when yesterday I was down another half a pound! Yay!

Mom-in-law is getting so excited because she actually has no clothes that fit her-- they're all too big. She's doing great! Dad-in-law isn't really trying anymore, but that hasn't stopped her. She's a trooper!

So, here's the thing now... It's just a few days until New Years and I would LOVE to say I lost 25lbs this year. I'm SO CLOSE!!! What are your great ideas for dropping a little bit (0.4 lbs) in just a few days? I'm willing to work extra hard these next few days to reach that goal.

And here's hoping you all had a Merry Christmas, too!

Hey there Barb! First of all, great job getting so close to your goal and eating well over the holidays! You are doing so great! I don't know what to advice for another half a pound - your sample menu sounds great! For me, cutting out the nuts and high fat items is what helps me in times like these, but it doesn't sound like you need any help with that. I'd try to stick as closely to your 'sample day' as you can, and make sure you drink lots of water! Good luck!

Lots and lots of water! Try and keep high sodium foods at a low level.
You are so close and you are doing amazing! Great job!!!

HI Barb,
You are doing really great and I am sure you will get to the 25, but if not - it's OK too.
Just cut out your carbs every other day and that might help, unless you are FT. Then IDK.
Have a great day :-)

Barb, I'm a little late here, but I hope you made your goal. Even if you didn't you have done SO well in 2011 that you are in a fantastic place to start the new year and just keep going!! Happy New Years to you!
