My grandmother is cooking today. I WILL eat Easter dinner with the family. I WILL NOT miss out on family time. I just plan on ham and a double helping of green beans . I will also be packing a diet rite cola because I'm sure the sweet tea will be flowing! And if we watch a movie after dinner I'm taking my SW curls. We got this.
Great job everyone! It is so nice to have this board to come to for support and confirmation that this can be done even on the toughest days. I typically do a basket of assorted candies for my kids. I have been having some strong cravings lately and Easter candy is my favorite so to avoid temptation I just bought each a chocolate bunny and called it good. I am proud of myself for choosing what was right for me rather than worrying about pleasing everyone else!
I could resist the chocolate and salads with fruit. Made a ham and a turkey, only ate turkey and lettuce salad. But i hate to admit, i did cheat with a rum and water. I was hosting and my mil stresses me. I wanted to take the edge off. I hope my wi tomorrow Is forgiving.
