Thanksgiving is a memory, but the leftovers live on...

It is over! I survived. Yes, I ate too much. Yes, I need to hop on that bike and get some activity points in before I weigh in on Wednesday. My first focus though is getting back on my water. Seems like for the past couple of days, I haven't been drinking as much water as I normally do. With all the salt in the Thanksgiving foods, I need to flush the sodium out of my system before I hit the scale again.

For Thanksgiving, I set the table with the red table clothes, our china and all of my holiday wares. It was lovely. I made sure to put both a dinner plate and salad plate in each spot, so those of us who are dieting could use the smaller plate and fool our eye. It totally worked! Well, it worked for my sister and I. Some of the men at the table thought that the salad plate was for the over flow of what wouldn't fit on their dinner plate. I threatened to photograph a couple of their plates, so I could post it here, but they wouldn't let me. Even so, I think my total dinner was 20 points, but I did eat a light breakfast and supper. I did eat the pecan pie...I know I shouldn't have, but I did and I finished it off today.

The great thing is that even when I mess up, I can start again tomorrow. Today's failures don't define me anymore. It is what I do each day that makes a difference.
