Got through Thanksgiving and the weekend, did well. Thanksgiving Day focused on the wonderful green beans, had turkey, a little stuffing, no mashed potatoes even though they whispered "eat me!!".... and a LITTLE dessert. Did not eat until stuffed.
Saturday was MY family gathering, didn't do quite so well because the food choices available were not as good. It was technically vegetarian but a lot of fried stuff and not any plain veggies except raw ones. Ate lots of raw ones. :) There was a delicious stuffed pepper with brown rice however that was wonderful... Had 2 brownies before dinner and 1 brownie and 1 small piece of ricotta cheesecake after. Did NOT eat until stuffed!!!!
All in all, great weekend, wonderful fellowship with my family. I am blessed. And so far I have lost 40 pounds since 2007. It is slow, but I think I am doing well. Hard to focus on veggies, but I am getting there little by little. And I am NO LONGER OBESE!!! Just overweight. And only 30 pounds to go. More than halfway to goal.
Walk, walk, walk. Tomorrow morning it will probably be in the fog. Looking forward to it.
