Well, I can't say that things turned out exactly as I planned on Thanksgiving, but it didn't hurt that much in the end! The best part was that I didn't gain! I am surprised (and happy) to report that I actually lost weight even with Thanksgiving happening!
So, the question of the hour must be: How did I do it? How did I stay on track with all that yummy Thanksgiving-ness going on around me? Well, I have to give a shout out to Dawn for her inspiring thoughts on holiday meal planning. Hubs and I did limit our carbs earlier in the day so we could splurge a bit without guilt. I also made a low-sugar, no-crust pumpkin pie that we enjoyed while the in-laws wasted their time on the huge Costco pumpkin pie they brought.
I won't say that Thanksgiving was completely on plan as far as limiting carbs goes, but we definitely didn't go crazy. I'm so proud of us! I did have a bite of "regular" pumpkin pie (it was gross) and a couple candy corns (which I used to love, but now taste like medicine). I'm so over sugared things! I think I can safely and honestly say I don't like sweets anymore. Wow... big moment for me!
Hubs is now at 44lbs down and I'm at 22. I'll take it! This last week has been GREAT! I fit into my "sort of skinny jeans" and regained some momentum. Yay!
I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving, too!
