I truly believe we should eat and enjoy ourselves for the holidays but everything in moderation. I don't like the the feeling I get after over indulging with heavy rich foods any more. And yes, I must have gravy on my turkey and a slice of pumpkin pie.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Turkey and all the fixn's is once a year, so I will be eating, then it is ham for Christmas. All in portion control, but then you have all the other stuff.....cheeseballs, cookies, etc. I am sure I will still over-eat....throughout the day.

One of the things that has resulted from my Spark journey is my attitude about certain foods (that good ole Southern comfort food I was raised on) has changed. I still struggle with over-eating at times but nowadays that usually means I O.D. on too much fruit or eat too many whole grains or seeds!

ELSEEBEE great planning. Thanksgiving is not all about food but about giving thanks to for the good things we have, like the love of our family and friends and a simply healthy dinner is good enough to celebrate.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY!

I'm "lucky"- I don't like turkey or stuffing or most of the other things that are on the traditional Thanksgiving table. DH and I will be alone this year and I'd thought we might make a reservation to eat out, but realized that everyone will be having foods that really don't appeal to me. Plus, we'd end up paying a huge amount for buffets that would really be expensive when you factor in portion control! So, we're going to spend a quiet day at home, watching parades, games, etc. and talking to family long-distance- and eating healthy!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays is only a week away. Lets enjoy it with our friends and family and still feel good on Black Friday when we go out to the shopping mall to get those first Christmas specials.

I came across this article that gives you greats tips on surviving Turkey Day. Enjoy and have a great Thanksgiving!
