A little "postscript" here as I climbed right back on the proverbial "wagon" and ate and tracked in the usual (healthy) way to which I've become accustomed.

As much as I enjoyed the vast repast of a Thanksgiving Day feast we enjoyed, it's good to be back to "business as usual," too... emoticon

I actually ate less than normal but I was cooking all day!

I never "diet" on a Holiday. I have some of everything including dessert and enjoy the day. I also eat a very lite breakfast and lunch before the main holiday meal ( we eat about 5 or 6 pm) so I don't feel famished by dinner. Leftovers, well after taking the rest of the meat off the turkey, I place most in a foil baking pan along with the drippings and gravey in a foil baking pan for a quick and easy Sunday dinner at another time. Leftover mashed potatoes, and green beans,etc were also placed in freezer containers along with the turkey. I placed some of the drumstick, bones, wings,, neck in a pot and made turkey broth adding some chopped celery and scallion onion tops. This will be todays dinner along with salad.

No but I did attain a higher level of guilt.

No but I didn't binge or eat until I was full and I never went back for seconds either.

I did not stay within my SP range, but I did stay within the limit I set for myself for the day, intentionally allowing for in a couple indulgences.

I did, but I was blessed to be on a high calorie day (I'm calorie cycling)!

No, I ate until there was no more "real estate" in my gastrointestinal tract to accommodate the day's ongoing feasting! We had a memorably great time, too. But I am right back on track today and will stay that way until Christmas Day and New Year's Eve. From past experience, I'll still maintain my weight.

I was able to exercise last night, which helped me from feeling too bad about going over.
For left-overs I am only having one serving of one left-over per day.

I went over about 350 calories on Thanksgiving , but then walked 3 miles. I enjoyed the meal with my family but made good decisions on what I ate and my portion size. I treated myself with a small piece of apple pie too.

Back on track today for sure.

I'm sure I went over, but I decided not to track on Thanksgiving. Probably if just the actual meal was counted, I was fine. But, there were snacks, punch and most of all, pies. I'm not worrying about one day.

Back on track today--it's a 'low' day for me, and it feels kind of good not too feel so full.

I'm going to forget about it for a couple of days and then take another look and see if I can come up with some strategies to handle Christmas and related festivities better.

I didn't track today because it was just too difficult (and since I'm in maintenance now, I don't worry about the occasional non-tracking day), but there is no way I was within range. No worries, though--I've eaten at the low end of my range the rest of this week, and probably will for a few more days, so it will all balance out at the end.

Since I walked I did stay in range. I know I ate too many carbohydrates.

It was tough but I stayed in my ranges. It helped that I cooked Thanksgiving dinner so had plenty of healthy choices. Even my sister in law brought veggies for appetizer.

I just got all my results from my first week. I stayed in range calorie wise but ... i thought i was doing so good making my healthier choices and well balanced. I have always been well balanced dietarily. Well so i thought. i ran my reports and im too low in protein and too low in carbs. my calories are great and so are my fats. i know i should be happy but im not smiling or frowning feel like scratching my head with and errrr for some reason i dont feel i did so good

I was shocked with all i ate i was was within my daily calories. I actually have more to go if i want 70-420 but the day isnt over yet. i actually for once in my life the first time ever turned doen my moms home made dutch apple pie.. .ive never done that before

here are my suggested ranges: calories-1,200 - 1,550 carbs-135 - 252 fat-27 - 60 protein- 60 - 136

here is what I ate today: calories- 2,359 carbs-232 fat-109 protein-116

I did not get a chance to exercise yet, but I will when my son is watching football. Exercise will make me feel a little better about the big splurge of Thanksgiving day.
