Today is Turkey Day in the U.S., the quintessential day of giving thanks and, most importantly, of feasting. I’m in charge of the turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and salad (yes, salad, which I am dubbing a “palate cleanser” lest anyone thinks I’m trying to be calorically frugal…)
To each and every one of you, I wish a very Happy Thanksgiving. This year I am thankful for my family, my friends, my hungry poodles, and all of the wonderful people I have met at Weight Watchers meetings in 2013. I sincerely hope that our friendship continues in the New Year and that we are all successful in our quest to live healthier, more balanced lives.
Speaking of balance, what choices will you make at today’s meal? Try to choose only the dishes that you really love and leave behind the ones that don’t call your name. Who needs them? If you leave the table feeling comfortably full, you’ll be happier and less guilty in the long run.
Think of it this way –today the turkey is the only thing that should be stuffed.
