Time Flies!

emoticon emoticon emoticonOh my goodness people's I am so amazed at time here, I mean I know it goes fast but for real. I think I started SP about 4 months ago and I love the life change, I am not quite loosing as fast as I would have like but you know I have learned alot and that change is what is most important I believe. Well then there is that thing with time, So it is I will have a bad week (meaning I feel lazy,children took all my time, or you know) well before you know it that whole week is literally gone...gone! Then..I am like, I could have lost another pound if I would have done my duty as a person caring about their health. Time though, wow, it goes quick.

emoticonSo here we are Nov. I usually cook dinner here at my house for all the family, I love it don't have to take the kids out and I can enjoy myself. So we come to the thought, do we cook the usual? I know it is not all that good for us but others are exspecting tradion. I feel guilty, like I should show them something new yet then again my Granny (resting in peace) would be so sad if I gave up her dressing she took so long to teach me to make. So my game plan is portion sizing, I am going to use a smaller plate (for myself) may encourage some others??? Then I am going to plan on not making enough to serve us for the next 4 days with left overs. I figure 1 maybe 2 days of Thanksgiving food will be enough!! Anyway, I just had all this on my mind this morning and wanted to share it, so will go now and you all have a wonderful day and pre-holiday worries!!!

    Holly,enjoy that dressing from you Grandma. I bet you it's the best ever(dressing is my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner). I always use a small plate at Thanksgiving and other times. Everyone asks me-did we run out of plates? Are you dieting? Why such a small plate? I get tired of it after awhile but sometimes tell them "this way I get to go back for seconds." And,that's true. We all want seconds,this way it's a reasonable seconds.
    Enjoy your dinner and family! Anne

    I agreed with you one hundred percent. Those recipes from our loved ones are more than just the food, but the memories they provoke. Traditional Thanksgiving food is comfort food, food to remind us how fortunate we are to have all this, when the pilgrims had nearly nothing. Just be portion conscious and enjoy that dressing!
