Christams day reporting

Day 3 of 42


Ok, I totally used my 'free day' pass today. I went REALLY heavy on veggies thought at our big meal! The bad stuff.....stuffing. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my mom's stuffing/dressing (I asked her to bring it to the meal). I really only get it twice a year. Once at Thanksgiving and once at Christmas. I indulged today. Lets see I had one dinner roll. I had a piece of pumpkin bread and a piece of jello cake. Really the stuffing is the bad stuff. Some of the veggies were more starchy 'bad' ones....corn and sweet potatoes. (because I had the sweet potatoes, I didn't touch the mashed potatoes).

I'm feeling stuffed though.

After we ate, I cleaned everything up. It was easier to put everything into the fridge. But after everyone left and it was just my husband and myself, I did something that was VERY difficult for me. I threw out the leftover dressing/stuffing. Dumped it! Why???? Well, as I stated earlier, I love my mom's stuffing and I would have LOVED to have eaten the leftovers. But would that have been the wisest thing for me to eat? NO! Unequivicably no! So I got rid of it! While I was doing that I also looked at what was left of the jello cake. There was quite a bit left. I cut out one more piece for me and put it on a plate. I asked my husband if he wanted some (he said no..that he wanted the rum cake that was left here....I'm not as tempted by that). SOOOOOOOO I dumped that cake into the garbage also! Got a cake server and served that yummy delicious cake right into the garbage can! Yes, that cake is low fat, light, whatever you want to call it. BUT it is a huge temptation for me. And if I would eat piece after piece of the cake, then it no longer is a wise choice.

So, I got rid of the temptation items. Straight into the garbage can they went! I'm ready to move on and get this weight loss show back on the right track!

I am totally impressed!! Don't know whether i would have been strong enough :) Hubs and i were going to do a dessert for today but both decided we didn't really need it and would rather enjoy the main meal and a bit of extra stuffing to boot!! Here's to a healthy 2009 :)

I'm so proud of you now that is commitment to your new challenge to dump something you love. BTW I made the Jello Cake thanks for posting the recipe. It is delish. Glad you & hubby had a good day.

I'm very proud of you & impressed!!! That's hard to do but it's even harder trying to lose the extra pounds that would've put on :)
Here's to a healthy, happy year here on in!

Wow, you are a strong woman! I am so proud of you for throwing out the stuffing and extra cake. I made stove top stuffing for myself because if I'd made it from scratch I would have eaten the whole pan and I always make too much. I figured the stove top kind would give me sort of the taste and since I'm not crazy about it I wouldn't over eat it. I really miss my Mom's chestnut stuffing, yummmmmm.

I did make the cookies and made only 2 dozen, should have made only 1 though. I've already had 4. Now I can only have one a day til they are gone. That's my plan. Wish me luck.

BTW, thanks for stopping by for a visit. I enjoyed the little visit :o)

Good for you!
For the first time in ages, I made LESS food quantity wise. There were 11 people at my dinner, and I had enouogh food but not tons of leftovers like other years. The hubby & I decided to have our big meal today at noon, leftovers from yesterday and then I am freezing the rst of the ham, kielbasa and rolls for future meals. My mom, sister and SIL brought dessert, so that all went home with them. I didn't do bad at all, jsut have to water weight gain this morning from the ham. Off to take a walk!
Keep up the good work!
