It is a shame though because tofu is an excellent protein source for vegetarians like me, but I don't suppose I get much benefit if it won't stay down.
Today is weigh-day and after a less-than-spectacular .2 lbs. (.1 kg.) lost last week, I was a little apprehensive. But I got on the scale this morning and was down 3.2 lbs. (1.5 kg.). This brings me to 181.6 (82.4 kg.). I'm just 1.6 lbs. (.73 kg.) from my goal of losing 100 lbs.(45.4 kg.)!
It is funny that at various times during this weight loss process I have "felt" thin. Or thinner. I would look at myself, especially in photos, and think I looked good. And then sometimes I wouldn't feel that way. Even though I was actually smaller than I'd been when I'd previously felt thin, I felt fat. I kind of feel fat right now. Or maybe not fat, but not like I look good. I don't know. It is weird. I'm going to have my mom take a bunch of pics of me over Thanksgiving so I can get some perspective. But for now, I feel fat. Or fatter.
Yesterday was my mom's birthday and I hosted a party for her last night. I think people with birthdays that often fall close to holidays sort of miss out on being "birthday-ed" so even though we'll be having ANOTHER big family meal on Thursday, we still got together for a party. We had a Chinese food themed dinner and cheesecake for dessert. It was yummy, but I didn't get to enjoy it much since the tofu made me sick.

I think my biggest Thanksgiving worry right now is not overeating, but it is being unable to eat. That would be sad. I haven't really been having issues like that, but I guess we just never know how food is going to go down.
