I can't believe that Thanksgiving has made it here already. Back in June when we started Weight Watchers, all the holidays seemed so far off. Now we've blown through two of the three major food gatherings (Halloween Candy...food gathering...get it) and we just have one more to go.
We ended up having a small Thanksgiving dinner. I really didn't want to do a thing this year because to be honest, I was petrified of overeating. I don't want food to control me anymore and most of the time, it doesn't. But when it sits in the fridge (especially things like pie, cake, and rolls) I have trouble resisting that kind of temptation. So I made up the basic Thanksgiving goodies and only one pie that was made with two bananas and sugar free pudding (2 cups). It wasn't the best, but it was a sweet which helped give closure to the day.
What is it with traditions? Why not start some kind of new one and move away from the food part of it....maybe I'll never know. Anyhow, sucess was had and we made it through.
Carl went to Wal-Mart to get in on one of the TV deals. He made it back home in one piece and with the TV he wanted. We used to be the couple who headed out for fun on Black Friday mornings, but now with stores opening on Thursday evening (or some all day) we just don't even fight the crowds. But it was nice to get a new TV and spoil ourselves just a bit.
