Most of it--I do a lot, but others help, too

but this year our son did everything his self. It was great. He bought both pre ordered pieces of Turkey and Ham at Honey Baked.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day. We all did together.

Some of it. With my knee and neck still hurting and swelling, I had to give in and order a precooked meal! Hated it, but it was something I had to do. :( I did make a salad and baked my pumpkin pie...and was exhausted!!

Next year. emoticon

How much of the Thanksgiving cooking did you do?



All of it--I'm in charge of the whole meal

Most of it--I do a lot, but others help, too

Very little--I usually make one or two dishes

None--I just show up and eat!

Don't celebrate Thanksgiving

During exercise I am not hunger, but once I am done, usually within 15-20 min. I start to get hungry. So I would consider that as ... increasing it.

Usually execise curbs my hunger while I'm at it. Nevertheless, I have to eat within an hour afterwards, or I get crazy hunger attacks.

Depends on if I push myself all day. IF so, I forget my hunger and push past it but drink LOTS of water.
Sometimes it curbs it and sometimes it seems I am always hungry, guess it depends on how I keep my mind distracted

I have never noticed one way or the other since whether or not I work out and when has nothing to do with hunger. I eat when it is time to eat with snacks also scheduled.
