The Holidays: License to Eat?

Not really.  You can spin it anyway you want, but eating is eating.  If you are trying to lose weight or need to lose weight, then look up Cooking Light Magazine or online, and find some great low-cal and more nutritious side dishes and desserts for your particular holiday.  Coming up is Thanksgiving, and since we don't have presents, we eat.

My rings are spinning on my hands because I have lost that much weight.  I don't want to screw it up, and I really want 50 or more gone this year.  That would be great!  However, I won't be able to do it if I eat everything.  Luckily, on holidays- as my family can attest, I usually don't eat much when everybody is there, as I am not hungry after cooking it all, but I eat a lot the next day...

Perhaps I'll give most of my leftovers away.  I will have one of those plastic plates with a lid for everyone.  We are seriously having a load of food, so that is reasonable.  Better stock up on containers!  I have no plans keeping all that stuff.  Now, Hubby is a different story...  Oh well, I'll have a plate for him, and he is working like crazy now, anyway.

So, little eating around the holiday, or eat less before and after.  That's the plan.

  1. Just eat littler portions and no seconds and thirds! The stuffing is either my best friend or worst enemy--not sure which! :)
