Quest For My Pretty - Thanksgiving Damage Report

Yeah, I know... I skipped a week. Probably THE week I shouldn't have skipped. Well, I didn't really skip it. I did weigh myself last week. But I was up 1.2 lbs (yes, hello 157.2 how not happy I am to see you), and I just really couldn't stand the thought of posting it. And I knew the holiday Thanksgiving damage would have to be done.

Now, I maintain my stance on Thanksgiving: It's not about eating heathy. Most of the food for Thanksgiving isn't that bad for you. It's about PORTION CONTROL.

There's no such thing as PORTION CONTROL when it comes to my mother's Salted Caramel Pie. It tasted like Heaven. Dulce de Leche sprinkled with salt on a graham cracker crust, topped with fresh whipped cream!

Or my mom's Chocolate Pie (which she said originated from the book The Help). It was burned but it tasted like gooey brownie mix in a crispy crust!

And then there's the Tastefully Simple Beer bread I unwisely made in a moment of post-holiday weakness. There's a reason that stuff tastes better when made with Bud Light vs. Sam Adam's Oktoberfest. I used the latter this time. I also maintain that Beer Bread is the only time Bud Light should ever be consumed... but that's another story.

Damage Report: 157.4 lb ( That's +1.4 from my last official reporting, + 0.2 increase over Thanksgiving).

It wasn't going to be pretty. But it's motivation! In a couple of weeks I'll have a new Althea Harper Sittella dress I need to slink myself into, so I had better start paying better attention to my food. I am doing a post Thanksgiving 7 Day Shakeology Challenge. Let's see if I can get myself back under control.

For those of you who want to lose control during the Holiday season: A new challenge will soon emerge. Keep your eyes peeled!
