I had a great Thanksgiving too. My treat to myself was a bite of a great chocolate espresso cookie. Other than that, 100% op.
Like you said, it's great not to be stuffed. We rock!..
I agree with the unstuffed feeling! I stayed true to my plan for Turkey day. I tasted the things that I had to, for seasonings, but it was a small taste, not a spoonful. I skipped the pies and rolls and sweets and snacks and wine! And now I am going to enjoy my last Medifast meal of the day, a cup of cocoa! Gobble Gobble, within reason! Violet..
Everytime we leave a restaurant, my MIL says how 'stuffed' she is..
I know that was my 'old way' too..
There was never enough food that I could eat.
But since joining MF, I have never felt 'stuffed' in that way again..
This little plan of packets and 'space-like' food has truly reset something in my body..
I have boundaries now and I can enjoy events, parties, travel, and yes HOLIDAYS without making FOOD the center of attention..
So once again, I managed to get thru a day OnPlan, and if you read my blog I just put up, you know this Holiday had it's own challenges, filled with so many opportunities to Give in and CHEAT.
But God provided and we ended up with a Holiday for our memory books...
I was 100% OP! I surprised myself and the great thing about it, was I was ok with passing up all of the goodies. I treated myself to a Medifast banana pudding at the end of the day with great delight! We do rock!..
I also stayed on plan and focused on the people instead of the food. In doing so, I had one of the best Thanksgivings ever. I felt great after the meal (which was at my house by the way) and everyone else was complaining how stuffed and tired they were. I ended my evening with a Medifast Brownie with a tbls of melted peanut butter....yummy!.
This morning was my weigh-in day and I ended up losing another -2.6 lbs. I am feeling really proud of myself today!!..
This was my first holiday experience on Medifast and I'm thrilled with my responses and results. This is such a doable plan and I'm so glad to have found it. I totally enjoyed not being stuffed and ended my day with a nice Medifast hot cocoa...delicious and great for the northern/midwest area I'm in - where the tempurature dropped all day! Congratulations and best wishes for continued success to each of you..
I ended my day with a brownie, too! I'm going to have to try putting peanut butter on it. That sounds yum. Maybe that's what I'll do tonight...
