was wondering how you made out thanksgiving... we faired pretty good... i passed up on dressing.. cranberry sauce and pie.. my plate was filled with only the items i had planned on.
your leaving a bite doesn't work for me/us.. what i leave... he eats and he has 300+ to lose..
will be on vacation next week.. and we go to two buffets a day.. much of the stuff on both will not be good but i can work around it.. again its a place we are use to.. the afternoon buffet ha steamed shrimp so i will get my protein in without the extra fat/fried

emoticon emoticon Howdy from the DFW area of Texas!

Even though I had a successful "tablespoon method" Thanksgiving holiday and festivities, my fight emoticon emoticon for my life on my new leg tremor medicine, is still ever with me. I wrote of my new found eating system on a blog this morning called the "Tablespoon Method". I was excited about how it worked. I still felt like I was in the land of the living and not secluded out somewhere.

I am 59, will be 60 April 5th, and I'm planning on "going against the odds" at the idea that "the older you get, the harder it is for you to lose weight" mindset! I just must! emoticon emoticon I vow to myself, to not become another statistic of my new medicine that "the average weight gain in a year is 45-60 lbs."

I know that somehow and sometime I will arrive at my 2nd goal that my doctors gave to me.
This challenge I must win. emoticon

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Paula emoticon

I take 26 different prescriptions on a daily basis. I had a brain hemorrhage in 2005 which left me with left-sided weakness, seizures, and some dementia. I have so many other issues, that I don't have time to list. The main medication that is giving me trouble is Seroquel. I have severe leg tremors and some facial and tongue "twitches". The doctors call it a "Parkinson-ism". I have the physical activity of Parkinson's but not the actual illness. I've been disabled since 2003 and had to retire from being a nurse and stay at home. I won't bore people with all that has happened to me since then, but I'm coming along with my weight loss over these past almost 4 years now. I can't drive any longer and have had my drivers license suspended due to my seizures, but my DH gets me out as often as possible.

I sure don't want to gain back any of my losses. I am determined to work all of this out and continue to lose down to the 2nd goal my doctors gave me. emoticon emoticon

Well, I should close for now, because Thanksgiving day is upon all of us. I am looking forward to a grand and glorious day and I hope all of you, my fellow WW's have a grand day too.

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

emoticon emoticon Good morning from the DFW area of Texas!

I'm fighting the battle for my life on a new tremors medication. I'm disabled with too many medical issues to list, and can only walk short distances emoticon emoticon . The medication is working quite well, but the main side effect is, of course, weight gain. The average weight gain is 45-80 lbs per year. I just can't go back to where I was! emoticon I have come a long way....I can't go back to my beginning......so, I have done portion control only since the beginning of my journey, but I am going to do the old WW core plan and still do my portion system. I'm in hopes that this will work for me. I'm excited about finding this team and look forward to finding new friends and fight right along with you to our goals. emoticon

Please feel free to read my spark page to learn of me.

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Paula emoticon

I think the largest part of my plate will be veggies and a nice salad! I love stuffing so I will figure in a small portion of stuffing. A lot of the extras I make can be lightened up, but it is going to be a balancing act! I love pie too - my favorite is pumpkin pie. Thinking of trying a lite pumpkin pie recipe or maybe buying one of those 1/2 pies I can get at the supermarket - that way I can have my sliver and hubby can have a couple of pieces and it will be gone.

Heck yeah. I am with my daughter until 11/24. What that means I am having to eat out of my comfort zone a.k.a. my kitchen.

My son and family will be here for Thanksgiving and I fix the usual fare but am able to control my portions while allowing myself a treat here and there!
Christmas will be harder as both my kids and their families will be here at lease for part of the time. I will be cooking most of our meals so will try to have plenty of salads and veggies.

We usually go to my parents, but I think this year I may be making Thanksgiving dinner and just going to my parents' for dessert. To be safe I think a lot of veggie side dishes will be on the menu! emoticon emoticon emoticon

60NLOVINIT2 - order off of the menu like we do. We will be going to K & W for Thanksgiving. Cheap and you can not over due it. Meat, 2 sides, 1 roll and butter, drink and dessert for about $8.00 a person.

Christmas will be our challenging holiday as we travel to MD for the holiday. My husband's sister cooks the same thing every year. I will just have to do smaller portions. Limit it, too!

It's colder here and I find that I am more hungry at times. I am a bit nervous about the upcoming holidays though. Thanksgiving won't be a huge problem - I am cooking and eating at home so I can control the portions and what I serve this year. Christmas is the one that makes me nervous. We usually go to my sister's and her table is loaded with all kinds of baked stuff and sweets and everything I don't want to eat!! I think I will take a veggie tray with me and stick with that.
