What to eat, what to eat!? All those yummy foods on the Thanksgiving buffet and you have to decide. Already you have on an outfit with a waist so you can feel it getting tighter. Slow down so your brain gets the signal ... takes 20 minutes to feel satisfied. Then, take a tablespoon or less of the things you want. Taste each of them before you gobble one all down. Slow down. Enjoy people as much as food. YOU CAN DO THIS! Remember it's a holi-DAY, no more! Be sure to post your success!
471That piece of pie ... how big should it be? Here's an easy trick to show you exactly how big. Take a paper plate .... just a cheap one that will fold easily. Fold it in half. Fold it in half again. Fold it in half again. That's a total of 3 folds. That's the size your piece of pie should be. One eighth of the pie. That's your portion. Now, you have a visual of what you should reach for!
190 Before you fill your plate, survey the table, know the offerings, decide what it is that your taste buds REALLY do want. You don't have to have it all. But you can have a taste of what you want and that won't ruin your day. After you've eaten, track it. Be loyal to yourself. You deserve the best care on this day we're most Thankful.
