Anyway, I was excited to see my mother because I hadn't seen her in a while. She has been following my progress on the blog but that can only go so far. It is much better to see her in person. I was also excited about what her reaction would be when she saw me today because I have lost some more weight since I have seen her last. And her reaction was what I thought it would be. She had a huge smile on her face as she hugged me and then she said that I look skinner in person than I do in my blog pictures. I have to admit that it was awesome to hear her say that!
I had prepared for the meal today by eating small for breakfast and working out right after I woke up this morning. I knew I was going to be eating a little more than usual because my mom is a pretty good cook and of course it is Thanksgiving. And let me tell you, the smells that were coming out of her kitchen were amazing. I hoped that if I took the same approach I did this last Saturday at "Friends Thanksgiving" I would come out of this holiday still weighing the same as I went into it. So I made sure that I ate good portions during the course of the day. I actually ended up eating small pieces of turkey during the course of the evening with only having the sides during the main meal. Of course I had a piece of apple pie at the end. I think I managed to keep myself under control because I only got that "full feeling" in my stomach once. And I made sure to take a long break after it happened.
When all is said and done, it was a great over all day with family. I worked out this morning and made sure that I did not stuff myself today. I hope the scale will be as kind to me in the morning, as it has been to me the last few days. I hope everyone has a great night and I will talk to you tomorrow.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 35 Points)
