Thanksgiving Week

It's Thanksgiving week already!  Usually I am the one hosting Thanksgiving for my brother and his family,that lives near me, and for my parents that travel over from West Virginia.  This year, of course, my mother will not be with us.  At my mom's funeral my dad requested that we ALL come down to his house for Thanksgiving.  He said he would provide the turkeys and his famous bread stuffing and asked me to come up with a menu for what everyone else could bring.  That's going to be a LOT of people at his house for the day.  My family will include my husband and I, our four boys and my oldest's son's girlfriend.  My brother that lives near me has two kids, and my brother that lives near my dad has five kids and three boyfriend/girlfriends that will be there for the day.  I think that is a total of 22 adult-sized people for dinner. and 12 actually sleeping at the house!    We will be having the traditional foods plus roasted brussel sprouts, mashed garlicy cauliflower and a sugarfree pumpkin cheesecake for desert, so those of doing low-carb will have something to eat.  I'm also bringing down some sugarfree coconut flour pumpkin muffins to have on hand for temptation times or a quick breakfast.  Not too worried about falling off the diet while I'm there.

Still have Thanksgiving decorations up over here!

I've been sticking to my NO snacking, and totally eating clean this past week to get off the rest of the six pounds I gained BUT I did not lose any weight this past week.  Weird huh?  I'm not going to try anything different this week since it will be hard enough to stay with what I'm doing over the holiday, but maybe the week after, if there is no weight loss, I'll re-look at what I'm eating.  

I have to hit the grocery store today to get my supplies for Thanksgiving.  I'm sure 10,000 other people will be out doing the same thing, so I better get out there early.  

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  1. I sounds like you are gonna have a wonderful time. Enjoy your family :-)

  2. I know what you mean about not trying anything different, since it will be hard enough to stay on track on the holiday. I didn't lose weight, either, but it is not time to try to shake things up too much. Hope you have a good holiday, with all the family around you. xoxo

  3. If the scale isn't going up, it's good right? I know I want to be good a couple of days and expect to see the scale budge, but sometimes it just takes a bit. You will do great.
    What a blessing to have family that wants to be together. I can't say that I miss my siblings, but I miss what I hear that other families have! Your Dad will be very happy to have all of you there!
    Thanksgiving is 1 day out of 7, you can do it! For me, the leftovers are always better than the that's 2 days!!!
    Blessings to you my friend!!!

  4. Hi Becky, I love your menu and had dedicated you are over the holiday! We don't live near family so the thought of a huge gathering sounds so fun to me. Stick with your eating plan, sometimes the loss shows up the next week AFTER you are really expecting it. You are SO close!
