I'm half way there. I didn't do well with the second Thanksgiving meal. It wasn't actually the meal itself as much as cooking all day long. I ended up being full before we even ate the meal. But I still ate, OF COURSE. I don't know why I do that. I ate so much I got the hiccups. It was ridiculous. I also drank quite a bit, so when I weigh in next, it may be scary. My next weigh in will probably be Monday though since I'll be doing the gym in the morning tomorrow and then it will be closed Thursday.
All in all, I'm still hangin in there. I'm not giving it 100%, more like 75%, and that needs to change. I am back on track fully today, but I fear when I am on the road this week, I'll be back in the half-assed mode. I think my attitude is all wrong. I should just KNOW that I will do well on the road. I have two days to get that way. My dilemma is that I like big portions, which I can eat at home because I cook my stuff much lower calorie. So, I start to feel deprived on the road when I eat less to compensate for the higher calorie value (example, my dad always cooks the eggs in so much butter I could fall over, that would never happen at my house, I use spray for Pete's sake. I know his taste better, but sheesh.) Anyway, that is the dilemma, so what is the solution to still feeling satisfied with smaller portions?
