Oh! my goodness… I ate! ate and ate some more! I was so stuffed yesterday!
My sister, brother and sister in law came from Mexico to spend Thanksgiving with us! I love cooking and I love it even more when I cook for something big like Thanksgiving! I just love being able to make the traditional dishes that hubby grew up with and that I know make him feel closer to home and also I like being able to introduce my family to all this which is so different than what we are used to growing up in Mexico…
I cooked, baked and baked some more… I had tons of “good stuff” to eat… it was just sinful! but man! It was nice not saying “no” to anything! LOL! … I just “let it happen” and I am back today… it’s being hard… because I like the “freedom” of eating it all… but that “freedom” comes with a bonding… with a price too high to pay and it’s fake… it becomes a prison that I know it’s very hard to come out of! So… I need to remember that and stay focused! I think it’s been discouraging to be stuck for so long in the same weight and even gain some… last time I weighed myself I was at 183.5 pounds (three days ago) even when I’ve been doing good with my food and exercising! I felt really discouraged all day long! Like… what in the world???? but… oh well… there’s no choice for me but to “stick with it” and hope my body “will get it”
This time I’ve decided I’m going to weigh myself in January 1st. 2013 to avoid getting so worked up about it… (of course working hard at it) but hopefully I’ll see the numbers drop! I know I’ll have to make up for all the eating from yesterday and I know there’s more “indulging” coming my way…. I’ll try to do better than yesterday though… I know there was much “unnecessary overeating”
Here are some pictures:
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving Day!
