I have to go to 2 dinners - my family and my BF's. Mine is at 1, his at 5. Both will be traditional meals with all of the trimmings. I will eat a little at each house - tablespoon of this and a tablespoon of that. Otherwise I will overdo it and make myself sick! I'll also be taking long walks with the dogs as often as possible to work off what I can.

Turkey, mashed pototoes, mashed sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, stuffing, gravy, bib lettace salad and biscuits. The full on Thanksgiving dinner. Last year we had the same thing and I think my portions came out to be around 1,800 calories not too far from my 1,550 limit. I'll eat light a couple of days before and this will be my only meal on Thanksgiving.

I am going to my brother's for Thanksgiving but I am sure it will be the traditional dinner in moderation cause he is a traditional - moderation kind of guy

My family eats very unhealthy and to be honest very overweight. Since they have the opinion that it's "ONLY ONE DAY A YEAR" I will bring my pre-measured, sides and just eat the turkey. Unless of course it's deep fried, then I will bring my entire meal !

Just the three of us this year so not a big deal.... turkey stuffing (making it for dad to bring over) mashed potatoes ( hubby loves to make a 5lb bag regardless if it's just us, he'll reheat till it's all gone) green beans gravy (hubby is a fan and son) All in all very low key, not really in the mood to make the huge dinner, first Thanksgiving with my mother gone... it will effect me more at Christmas as they use to come for that and seeing dad come alone will hit me hard...
Starting to like the new me! Waiting for my garden to come to life!
