Thanksgiving on Sunday

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Wow Thanksgiving has come and gone for yet another year. It seems to creep up so fast and the amount of work that is needed can be over whelming for me. I always have a Fibro bad day, the day after preparing a large meal.

It was small this year, just my son, my boyfriend and his son. I felt so frustrated trying to work in the very small kitchen where we currently live. I made a beautiful Turkey with stuffing (home made or course), mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots, cranberry, beets, pickles, and us humans. The cats sat and watched and then had their wee bit after us humans ate. We gave Thanks to God for the wonderful meal and then managed to dig in.
Oh forgot, I made a beautiful Apple pie, and I used Stevia instead of sugar and only had a small piece to boot.
I was pleased as although we ate from Dinner plates instead of my usual luncheon plates, I did not over eat. The temptation was surely their but I held back and I succeeded. I was proud of myself. I seem to be over coming the urge to over eat.

The whole issue of control over my food portions seems to be improving daily. I did not loose any weight the last week, but neither did I gain anything. So being at Par is ok for one week but this week that will not be good enough.

Onward and upward I am headed, This week I plan to try to lose 5 pounds. I hope that I am able to succeed as long as I keep my portions down, do my cardio and my strength training, I should be all right.

By Christmas I would like to be in the 20 pound club if I can manage it.

I trust that all of my Canadian friends had a Wonderful Thanksgiving holiday weekend. To my American friends I trust you had a nice Columbus Day.

Blessing from Jesus Christ the Son of God

    We had a small but lovely celebration too. Mom-in-law was aware and appreciative. We were thankful that she is still here to fuss over. (Maybe not next year.)

    Sounds like you did well.
