I'm going to enjoy myself guilt-free, but NOT give myself permission to be a glutton.

Happy Thanksgiving!!! emoticon

    We will be enjoying our meal, and we've taken some steps to cut back calories by choosing a small Cornish hen, steamed veggies, and salad. Our splurges will be Potatoes Anna (sweet and white potatoes thinly sliced, then drizzled with butter, thyme, and Parmesan cheese - a Vegetarian Times recipe from several years ago) and pumpkin pie. Okay, a third splurge...I did buy some brie for appetizers. Hope you enjoy the meal and indeed don't guilt yourself out. As you said, moderation....

    I'm not exactly "letting myself go" with free rein to eat whatever and however much I want, but I will enjoy things I may not normally eat in moderation and not to the point of needing to unbutton my pants.

Which brings up another point. I will be wearing clothes that fit with no elastic. That does wonders for reminding me when to stop.

    SP ~ Semi Private, huh? I thought it stood for Spark People. emoticon We are lucky we don't have to pay the price for his gym. hehe I both agree and disagree with what he said about 'one meal won't kill you or make you fat'. "Maybe" that is correct but I know if I tried it out and just let myself go, I would feel guilty and that alone might make me 'slip'. I do think, however, that a person should be able to eat a holiday meal and REALLY enjoy it. Maybe having some things that are not 'on plan' but staying as much to plan as possible. On TV this morning, someone was saying that you should skip the cranberry sauce because of all the sugar content. I know, for me, there is NO WAY that is going to happen. My 2 favorite things about Thanksgiving, or Christmas, are the stuffing and the cranberry sauce. If necessary, you can keep the turkey and potatoes. emoticon So, yes, ENJOY ~ but don't enjoy so much that you feel bad about it after all is said and done. JMO. emoticon emoticon

    Thanksgiving is really just a turkey dinner with lots of family and the good china. Same old dinner rules, prettier setting. No parties leading up to it. Thanksgiving is the easy one. The hard one comes next month.
