I come from a very large family. Being an introvert, Thanksgiving has never been my favorite time because of all the questions about what I am up to and it being at the smallest 80 people. I have always felt self-conscious about my size at this because Thanksgiving dinner is hugely centered on food. This year was the first year that afterwards I actually felt happy with thinking back on it. Almost everyone I talked to commented on how good I looked and I was in my smaller clothes. I just graciously said thank you but my inner me was just shouting "haha. yay! 25lbs down!!!" It made all the questions about what I am doing and aren't I in school more manageable.
Overall, I think this Thanksgiving weekend was well managed. It was really hard to track because with all the food prepared by someone else and not knowing what all is in the casseroles. But I finally got up the motivation to go on some walks with my pups. All in all it was not too bad but now it is in the past so I am just going to work on moving forward.
On a side note, my mom made me a delicious pumpkin cheesecake and some pecan pumpkin pancakes as a early celebration for my birthday.
