Sitting, Weighting, Wishing

Hello, loves!

Tay and I had a lovely time this morning together:



Exactly 3 pounds down from last week! And that's really good considering this week out of the month is usually not good for that (I always gain during the week of Veterans Day? Noooooo). I'm happy! Still unsure what my Wednesday Weigh In will be for Challenge purposes, but we'll see.

5 pounds away from having lost 40 pounds! So close I can taste it!

I can also taste mashed potatoes, 5 cup salad, my mom's stuffing, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, and homemade rolls. I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week. I've been thinking a lot about strategy for that day. I think I'm going to have ultra-moderate-bordering-on-tiny portions of things I like, maybe skip a few things all together (gonna try and get my mom to offer/let me make sweet potatoes and eat those instead of regular mashed) and then not give a good damn about portion size of the one thing I love the most about Thanksgiving. Namely, my mom's stuffing. I know that might be loco in the calorie department or maybe in the strategy department too...but you haven't had my mom's stuffing. It's just so good. And at least right now, I don't see myself feeling guilty over eating as much of it as I want. If I'm choosing this plan, and I stick to it, then I can't exactly feel guilty if it was a premeditated choice, right? And I'm choosing one thing that I really love, over just going nuts over everything.  Maybe it's bargaining moreso than strategy? I don't know. But anyway, that's just an idea I have floating around in the ol' noggin.

Okay. I'm off to do a thing here and a thing there. Here a thing, there a thing, everywhere a thing thing.

My strategy for the holiDAYs is not worrying on Thanksgiving and Christmas day. I'm going to be a drill sergent the week leading up to each day but the day of I'm going to eat. I think my stomach has shrunk enough at this point to allow me to fill up faster and I don't plan on eating to the point I'm in pain. I love Thanksgiving food and I've already made the decision to not feel guilty.

Rocking weight loss!

Oh goodness, I have decided I probably wont even have any turkey this year. I would rather use my points on things I don't get all year. Stuffing and candied yams. My two favorite thanksgiving foods. Eek.

WOW!! Way to go!! You will hit 40 pounds lost before you know it!! :)

Great job!

I think your plan for Thanksgiving sounds perfect - that's what I did last year and I ended up down 1.4 at WW come that Saturday. It also helped me to get in my normal workout on the holiday, so maybe you can find a way to fit in some exercise that day too. It's always nice to go for a walk between the meal and dessert!

Keep up the good work!

I like your plan. In the past you would have eaten full portions of everything AND gone wild with the stuffing. Sounds to me that you have made some changes you should be proud of!

btw, if you succeed to your thanksgiving plan please, share your method because I'm starting to worry about how I'm gonna survive christmas (:

Yay on the loss! 3 lbs in a week is so awesome.

About the Tech game, I have no freaking idea why they couldnt show it locally, both schools are local....the alumni all watch the games....poo on local tv!

My Turkey Day plan. I'm walking a 5k in the morning, I'm going to be good all week, on the actual day, I'm going to eat whatever I want for that ONE meal and not turn it into a day long event.

Yay to almost 40 lbs gone! Youre seriously rocking this!
