Prepare for Thanksgiving

Self Portrait Sunday 11-18-07 from FlickrThanksgiving is coming for most of you. For me for the last few years, I’ve had two Thanksgiving dinners in one day: one with my family and one with Mike’s family. I am here to tell you that you can lose weight the week of Thanksgiving. A couple of years ago, I wrote an entire series about how to do just that:

I really should have read this series before last weekend, however. This year, my family celebrated Thanksgiving last Sunday instead of this Thursday. My first thought was, “Great! I won’t have to figure out how to fit two meals in one day.” I can do that AND lose weight, but it was great to know that I didn’t have to.

Unfortunately, I didn’t plan how I was going to tackle the one Thanksgiving meal last Sunday. I ended up using far more Flex Points than I have and now I have another meal with Mike’s family on Thursday. This time, I’m planning exactly what I’m going to eat and how I’m going to survive.

As you head into this holiday season, don’t give up. It is possible to eat healthy AND enjoy the fruits of the season. All you have to do is plan for them and stick with your plan. Wishing you the best this holiday, now go give it to yourself!
