I had a remarkable thing happen on Thanksgiving - my cousin sneaked up to me and said "Ok, I've got to know, how much have you lost!" Wow, that was the first time anybody noticed!!!!! That's a milestone!! Made me swell with pride. She only sees me a few times per year and she noticed!
Now afterwards, I wasn't as good as I could have been, but I was better than I have been. I had 3 servings of green beans - yep 3. I was hungry. 1 serving of my own very low carb green bean almondine and 2 of dear auntie's green bean casserole (reasonable servings of course). Also 2 servings of turkey, one with a tiny tiny bit of gravy. NO potatoes. No rolls. One 1 inch square of broccoli cornbread (it looked better than the rolls). About 2 cups salad - I called ahead to be sure there would be one. 1/2 egg deviled - would have been more but the one I ate tasted oddly sweet. and one sliver of coconut pie and one sliver of chocolate pie. No sweet potatoes. No white potatoes. No corn. No dressing. No rolls. No cake. No pecan pie. No junk from horderves served before meal.
I will admit - the chocolate pie was my "cherry on top." My granny who is very disabled now made it - and it was STILL WARM. OMG - that was heaven.
The rest of the day was low carb. I'm very proud of my Thanksgiving day. The highlights were my cousing noting my wt loss, my 6 yr old cousin saying grace, and that warm chocolate pie. Only one highlight had calories!
