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.
