One of the things that has always hurt me with weight loss, is the fact that I love food. I love to eat a lot of good food.
My new plan is to ignore that, and eat only what I need. Holidays throw a wrench into that plan. I don’t want to insult my wife, or not enjoy the holidays, so I decided to eat a little of everything for Thanksgiving dinner.
I enjoyed the meal immensely, and although I overate, it wasn’t by as much as it would have been before. Also, due to the amount of food I ate, I’m not trying to log the calories I ate for each item (as I usually do), but just estimating the whole meal. It may not be very accurate, but there should only be a few days a year like this.
