We're getting together with family and friends. And sice I allow myself one splurge day a week, Thursday will be that day. What's funny though, is I've been eating healthier for so long that a lot of stuff doesn't appeal anymore. I prefer fresh green beans with peppers, pearl onions and mushrooms to green bean casserole! I will eat dark meat cuz it's my favorite and I will enjoy dessert....pumpkin cheesecake yum!

My mom, my boyfriend, and I are going to eat together... he doesn't have any family, and hers are a couple hours away. We're going to eat at Cracker Barrel... not too healthy, I know, but there won't be days of leftovers to tempt me!

I think I'll skip tracking that day though ^^;

I will be driving 6 hours to my aunt's house in Arizona with my mom and my son. She usually puts on a good spread. I'm not going to watch too much what I eat, but the quantitie will be less. And I'll make sure to get in a walk or two while I'm there a well.

one day of over eating is not what got me where I am today. But I do need to watch the left overs and the "befores".

I don't know.
Last month my mil asked dh if we'd like to join her on Thanksgiving and possibly eat at a restaurant because "otherwise she would be all alone". No pressure or guilt there!. If we go it will mean at least 5 hours in the car that day and I probably won't get exercise or eat particularly healthy. I guess I could try to keep portions small. I don't think one day will mess me up so I'm not very worried.
MIL has been known to change her mind about stuff last minute so we might end up not going anywhere. I'd rather cook food at our house.

I never calorie count so Thanksgiving is no exception. I'm likely to eat past satisfaction though (which is very rare for me). I'm going to try to squeeze in some fitness so I don't break the habit in the days surrounding Thanksgiving though.

Time to stop trying to solve things with food (lack of included) that food won't solve. Food solves one thing: bodily hunger.

Thanksgiving is definitely going to be a day of amnesia for me (grin). I'll try and jump on the elliptical the day before for a little extra time (but won't beat myself up if that doesn't happen).

Biggest challenge is going to be the leftovers. Last year I packed up a lot and sent them home with family but we still quite a bit left - and it's sooooooooooo hard to chuck out that extra delicious stuffing.

I'm taking the day off. I started building my recipes (I'm cooking with help from my mom) in the builder then just said "screw it" after seeing what the counts were LOL

Working on maintaining at 140!

I was just curious what everyone is planning on doing for Thanksgiving? Are you planning on taking a day off from calorie counting or watching what you eat? Are you going to make Thanksgiving Dinner? If so, do you plan to make it healthier? In what ways?

I'm going to my parents house for a small family get together. I'm bringing homemade cranberry sauce and I'm making baked apples with a oatmeal topping for dessert. My dad is diabetic and my sister has become sensitive to sugar so I'm making both low sugar. Otherwise, I plan to track my calories but not worry about how much I eat, within reason.
