Turkey - carb fest is done!

OMG did I eat...and eat....and eat....and..whoa...was that something tasty ...yup I ate that too!

Good news is I stayed above my own personal yellow line: 195! 

I would love to have blogged that I was good and didn't over indulge...but I did.  I did buy a Tur-Duck-Hen and had it shipped to TX, my sister-in-law is a little leery about cooking a turkey.  As for the TDH...not worth the money.  It was tasty, just not what I paid for it from costco.com.  Next time, when we go to TX, I think I'll take over the sides as well.  I can't do a side of carbs with a side of carbs and a side of carbs oooo and those veggies...why they are covered in mushroom soup. 

Thank god I left all of the left overs in TX that way I don't have to see it in my fridge tempting me with their naughty little voices!

I'm still trying to convince my sister to just throw away her left over cake/pie/cookies.  There will be no Turkey Fairy that comes and gives her a rash.  No one will judge her, especially since all her in laws LEFT ALL THE DARN FOOD at her house and didn't take any home.  What does one do with two vats of mash potatoes? ... the trash!

Sunday I went back on Atkins (except the ice cream that fell into my mouth at the gas station!) and I've lost the 2 pounds I had gained from my unintentional carb fest in TX. 

My own personal goal is to get down to 190 by new years, 3 pounds in 5 weeks...that seems do-able! 

Onward and downward!


  1. Completely doable! I've heard tales that we can actually lose weight in the last month of any given year. I haven't done that yet, but I'm giving it a try this year!! LOL

    Congrats on NO leftovers! Back on plan for you!!

  2. Yep, I think I can make it! Now if only everyone else would throw away their left overs, there was cheese cake and cookies galore in the staff lounge today...sigh. Must prepare my mantras again..."Nothing tastes as good as skinnner feels!"
