Tackling Thanksgiving

Tuesday, November 18, 2003
The holidays are coming up...and so is all that good food. I don't think we're having the huge gathering this year for Thanksgiving that we normally have. Everyone's schedule seems to be conflicting this year and we're having a very early Christmas (the 13th) so I don't think I have so much to worry about for Thanksgiving as I do for Christmas to be honest!

BUT - there is going to be food! I have been doing a pretty good job of getting really full prior to meals on things like water (lots of water w/ lime) and fruit - so by the time the food gets around I am not really that hungry anymore and don't eat nearly as much as I used to.

Today we had Chinese food for lunch. To be fair I had Japanese and Chinese for lunch today...I had lettuce wraps and one piece of sushi (Unagi) from Taipei. Very good and filling and very lite! I think I went through about four glasses of water, too...oh, and I did eat my fortune cookie.

I haven't been keeping up with my points, but I have really noticed that my portions have been steadily decreasing. (See what I mean about flip-flopping and not sticking to one thing??) I think the biggest thing that I can attribute that to is the hunger scale.
