This is why we can't have anything nice.

Friday, November 29, 2013

I decided to make a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving III (so there'd be a pie that I'd know what was in it) but I was trying to half the recipe and half the sugar and add monkfruit packets, but I wound up with normal sugar plus 1/2 cup worth of monkfruit! So, next time show your work. I microwaved the extra filling and tasted it, and at least it's not ruined. It is really sweet, almost like egg nog.

So, another Thanksgiving with the in laws today. I weighed myself this morning and I was up 4 pounds. And over 160 emoticon

But it turns out my cycle is early, so that's 2 of the pounds and then some salt. Doesn't change that I need to get back in management mode, big time. But it's a relief to know that it was my hormones to some extent crumbling my resolve yesterday. It just means I don't have to make the same choices today.

And I only drank water, so that's one thing I did right.

    Don't fret! I'm sure that a few days of normalized eating will knock those pounds off in no time.

    I was about to say Thanksgiving comes but once a year. Yes, it still does, even if it's spread over 3 days! Enjoy it!

    It is an ongoing journey... this is my first thanksgiving and christmas with spark. It is difficult to not overeat...

    I think most people are up according the scale. Even if one eats within their range, there is so much more sodium on Thanksgiving. Great game plan of making your own pie!

Hang in there and give your body a few days. It will "even out" itself and the numbers will go down.

  Oooh, I'm lucky! I don't like pumpkin pie. And I'm not big on turkey. A small amount once a year is plenty!

    I am up today too. I always hate weighing in the day after Thanksgiving, but it helps me curb snacking later.

Congratulations on trying to make a different type of pie! I made a traditional pumpkin pie and then low-fat pumpkin custard. The pumpkin custard recipe is from the Low-Fat Moosewood Cookbook. It is delicious!!
