I probably should not admit that I am writing this post in a turkey coma, but there you have it. Between the cleaning leading up to Turkey day, cooking the darn Turkey and then eating the Turkey, I'm slightly loopy. I will say I did pretty good-- I ate more than I should have but I knew I would. Home cooked meals with family don't happen often enough.
The god news is I didn't pick and taste taste everything. I also really don't think much of what I cook for Thanksgiving is all that bad (if you just pretend the gravy doesn't exist!) Turkey (I only eat white meat, which is less fatty than dark anyways). Stuffing, I used whole grain breads, celery, onions and chicken broth so that isn't bad. Mashed potatoes-- not the healthiest but don't tell anyone if my family I used skim milk to make them! Sweet potatoes-- don't drench yours with butter and it's okay. Last, green bean casserole with low fat cream of mushroom. Over all I feel like it really wasn't a "bad" meal.
My weight has been bouncing between 167 and 169, so I'm still losing and super happy about it. I feel good and think I look great. I love the compliments I get from people who don't see me everyday. Except for my new allergy doctor who was kind enough to tell me I'm fat, need to lose weight and if I'd exercise I would have disc problems. He also suggested I shoot my dogs, so I'm not really taking what he says to heart. I will also probably be looking for a newer allergy Dr.
I realize I'm rambling, so now would probably be a good time to stop typing!
