Onto the Next Holiday

Two days after the feast and I am fortunately down 1.5 pounds. I will thank lunch yesterday to Taco Bell for that. Enough said.

Seriously, Thanksgiving went rather well. The weather here was absolutely beautiful. My parents were over bright and early. We put plastic on the windows, watched the parade on State Street, cooked an awesome Turkey with stuffing (thanks to Barefoot Contessa), and truly enjoyed each other's company.

It was something I have missed in a while. I haven't cooked like that since I have been divorced. I realized how much I really miss that.

I did call my little man early in the morning to wish him a Happy Thanksgiving and to let him know how thankful I am for him. It was really hard not spending the day with him, however I did get a phone call a few hours later from the X telling me how he forgot to tell me he had to work the next day, so he would be bringing my little guy back later in the evening. Hmmm, luckily it is all about my son, so I didn't make a smart ass remark. I'll stop there.

The day ended with a .5 pound in weight gain, leftovers sent home with everyone, Christmas lights put up outside, a flat tire, and the evening with my son.

I have so much to be thankful for.

So glad it al went well for you..and you came back happy. We do cook more when there's a guy in our life..my hubby will ask for a drink every half an hour..one time Nescafe, then Milo, then tea, then coffee...and that doesn't include the details of meals he loves to eat. Sometimes when he's away I feel relieved..free from the kitchen LOL!
Your little man will soon be big enough to put that demand again on you, you know! Just wait and see..

Take it from a guy who lost 110 lbs. Dont watch your weight that close. It will drive you nuts. Your weight fluctuates up and down alot during a day. I always did it once a week at roughly same time of the day. It gave me a better idea of where I stood. And you wont beat yourself up over a 1/2 pound!

Sounds like you had such a great time Fly. I know how hard it is to keep remarks to our selves, been there too many times too...

wow Jackel...

I am with ya on the weight front... I have put on about 5 lbs since moving to Fl 3 months ago!!! YIKES

I finally just threw away the pies etc... I am just too tempted to eat it if its in the house.

oh I wish my appetite left me again for a little bit. It was much easier to stay thin!

Good luck with the dieting! I need to get this 5lbs off by the 20th... think I can do it???

Did you get a toach bug? Nevertheless it sounds like you had such a wonderful time. Lots of leftovers I bet. Very well done with restraining on a remark to the ex. Glad your number one little man is back with you.

Weight, weight, weight...

I'm still not used to the American pound system, but I know I have to lose a few kilos any of the rare times I look in the mirror. I eat a lot... :(

Good on you, Mom. The smart ass remarks get nothing except future payments of trouble.
