I did pretty well, considering.
There was some family drama going on, so my digestion was unsettled going into it.
It's a tradition in my husband's family to have homemade lasagna on Christmas Eve, which I have to "deconstruct" because we're not supposed to be eating wheat-y things, like pasta. But the innards are the best part, so I loved that! I opted out on the garlic bread, which I love too.
There was a big salad, which I tentatively indulged in, since I've been craving salad. This isn't a thing I'm not supposed to eat - it's just tough on my GI tract in general, and I have to be careful. Between the roughage and the tomato stuff in the lasagna, I had a fitful night.
Christmas Day food included a beautiful standing rib, a spiral-cut spiced ham, lots of dippin' veggies and FRUIT! oh yum! And other carby stuff: mac-n-cheese, a potato casserole, then veggies - seasoned green/snap beans, spinach, asparagus, corn casserole... some of that I can't have, or simply don't care for, but I got more than plenty of what I could and wanted to eat. I went a bit crazy on the fruit. I was so involved with the fruit I forgot all about any dessert. I can't remember if there was any or not!
Even so, at the end of it all, I actually LOST a couple pounds. Amazing. I certainly wasn't expecting that. And since then, I've continued to trickle in that downwards fashion, albeit slowly. I've been kind of "stuck" recently, so that's a welcome change! Now if I can just keep on that track with all the leftovers we brought home!
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
