Thanksgiving

I don't understand why I feel obligated to eat more just because it is there. Not just picking, but a second helping when I really am comfortably full. I guess it was foods I don't usually make, but not even that really. Because you're supposed to eat too much at Thanksgiving?

Except for stuffing and gravy, I actually did ok on Thursday. And nobody in our house wanted Pumpkin Pie, so I only made Apple, so I only had one slice, not two. Ok, yes, ice cream.

But we've been pretty active this weekend, not with "exercise", but cleaning around the house, I've been painting a set at church for the youth group, and I walked around a flea market all morning on Friday. Didn't get on the scale yet, so we'll see if I at least broke even...

I was going to say that I did okay on Thanksgiving until I remembered that I had a slice of pumpkin pie and a slice of eggnog cheesecake, and then another slice of eggnog cheesecake. Oops.

I don't understand why I feel obligated to eat too much on Thanksgiving either. This year I avoided the mashed potatoes because I decided I don't really like them and I'd rather eat stuffing. I like stuffing, and normally I don't get any.

I did not do ok on Thanksgiving. (I'll leave the details to your imagination.) I do use the excuse that it's Thanksgiving, so you're supposed to stuff yourself. And then the rest of the holidays, with all the parties and cookies and pies and yummy foods, come along and I just keep on eating.... How do the rest of you get through to the new year?

turns out the scales were not in my favor this morning. I gained 3 pounds this last week. I'm not entirely surprised, but a bit bummed.
