Default Holiday advice

Ok, so I am on day 4 of induction and tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I am going to my Aunt's house and she is going to have probably 20 or so people. the main 3 families that I know are all foodies. They always have lots of AMAZING food. But a lot of it is not acceptable for Atkins. I am hoping for some advice or tricks to try to stay strong.

I already accept that I will not be staying at induction levels tomorrow because I plan to graze on veggies, cheese, and the like to try to stay away from the flour/sugar stuffs.

I am bringing deviled eggs, mashed cauliflower, and a low carb green bean casserole so I know I have some safer foods.

I don't like turkey but there will be ham as well which I can eat, I'm worried it might be a honey or sugared ham though will that have a huge effect?

I am planning to have either a slice of pumpkin pie OR a small serving of stuffing I just haven't decided yet.

I will not be bringing leftovers home except for maybe deviled eggs if any are left.

Words of wisdom or suggestions for anything I may have missed would be greatly appreciated

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck to you.

I don't like ham and so I had no idea of the calorie intake! But I did check couple of places for HoneyBaken ham and it seems that the carb is not too high:

Regarding pie, I too am planning to have pie but have decided that I will have three spoonfuls. Hopefully I would be able to stop after three, lol.

All week I have been reminding myself that Thanksgiving is to see family and enjoy their company. So I am planning to get myself busy with enjoying seeing family, some I have not seen for over six months.

I too started lowcarb this past Friday and am very concern of not messing up.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow, I know my addiction is too strong to resist the carbs. I am staying home. I see my family all the time, my weight loss is more important to me right now. That must sound bad, but really, I only have the one day off and I am going to sleep in and watch a netflix movie and relax.
