Thanksgiving Re-cap


Thanksgiving went well.  I had no major issues.  My restriction is such that overeating is pretty much out of the question.  I enjoyed a few bites of everything...and a big ole piece of pie!  It was yummy!

We actually had two Thanksgiving dinners; one Thursday and one yesterday.  The only thing I would have done differently is that yesterday we had lunch around 12:30 and dinner around 4:30 and I just wasn't very hungry at dinner.  I ate anyway which isn't my M.O.  I don't feel bad about it, but food is much better when you're hungry!

I also visited my step-grandma yesterday.  I haven't seen her in more than a year.  She mentioned that her daughter, my step-aunt is thinking of having Lap-band surgery.  So I sent out an email this morning telling my aunt that I'd had the surgery.  I really like talking with people about my experience through this blog.

Oh and I forgot to mention I got almost all of my Christmas shopping done ON BUDGET which is fantastic since I'm planning to pay some things off with my Christmas bonus instead of spending it on gifts and travel like I usually do.

You look great. Overshopping at this time of year is, for me, an even bigger problem than overeating! So good job on the budget!

Yeah, I wasn't going to say it, but you do have nice legs. You look thin in your pictures. Not even chubby.

I regret to inform you, however, that you're too fiscally responsible for us to remain friends. ;)

Let us know how your step-aunt responds about about your band experience... I'll check back to see how that went...
