    It took me years to like chicken :p: even when I was eating goose. I'd only eat chicken if forced to.
    Goose is just so succulent :love: the only problem is the fat in the air makes your eyes sting, so we all wander round the house like we're crying.

    OP seriously, just pig out! :p:

    The general rule is 3500 calories over/under what your body needs = 1 pound in weight.

    You could eat 6000 calories on christmas day with the dinner/chocolates/pudding etc and put on a whole ONE pound on.

    You probably wouldn't even get near 6000 calories, just eat what you want, its christmas

    What the hell OP? To put it into perspective, I'm in a pretty crap place with my recovery from anorexia at the moment (pretty much relapsing) and I'm planning to eat more than you on Xmas day! If you can't eat on Christmas day when the hell can you? Granted I'll probably pay for it in terms of a mental breakdown and renewed restricting afterwards (obviously I hope not!) but I've always vowed not to let my food issues ruin Christmas! Eat whatever the hell you want! Basically the point of this tangent is to tell you it's Christmas! Seriously, stop the dieting for one day! It won't kill you and you're not going to gain weight from one day of eating a bit more than usual.

    Anyway, I'm having a mushroom and chestnut pie, the usual veg, stuffing for dinner. Will probably have apple crumble for dessert. I bought vegan ice cream but I forgot I don't actually like it so my mum can have it! Um... will probably have lots of chocolate if last year was anything to go by! I fancy pecan pie so I'll probably bake some pecan pie bars so I can regulate how much I'm having! Will have mulled non alcoholic wine too! I'm having a minor anxiety attack at the mere thought of all the food I will be ingesting, it's probably more than I've had for the past few months but **** it! Not going to let my life be ruled by fear! I'm also not going to let the day end without me having my first slice of cake in years! Last Christmas was an absolute nightmare, so I at least want to pretend I can be normal and stuff my face even though I'm shaking inside at the thought.

    My motto for 2011 is **** it. I'm not going to define myself by how much I weigh or how much I eat. No one else cares, they want me to be healthy and happy. So **** not eating what I want on Christmas day! I might freak out but it will be worth it if I get to allow myself nice food for one day and not worry about the sugar or fat or wonder if having liquid calories will make me balloon the next day. Hopefully I'll be able to get back on track on the days afterwards
    and not get myself in a position where I'm ill and hysterical. Christmas is a time to eat, drink and be merry with your family. Why faff about worrying about calories on that day? Watch crap TV and deal with the consequences in the new year (the media exaggerate weight gain over Christmas anyway!)
