Surviving Thanksgiving

Greetings All

My wife and I have been low carbing since May 5th.
My weight loss is 58lbs (256-198) , my wife's loss is 38lbs (196-158).
After a extended induction ,we are eating about 30-40 carbs per day.
This Thanksgiving we decided to treat ourselves and abandon our diet for one day.
I ate corn bread ,dinner roll and three small portions of desert , along with all the other thanksgiving fare.
The only thing I noticed was the next day my wife and I were both hungry all day long , but we got right back into low carbs.
The cravings only lasted one day.
To me the cravings was a small price to pay for such a great meal.
Since thanksgiving I have dropped another 1.25 lbs and with the holidays coming up we plan on doing the same.
I wish you all the BEST of luck with your low carbing and the happiest of holidays.

Happy holidays to you and your wife too, Michael. You've both done well on the weight loss.

I can usually get away with one day of high carb stuff too, though I never eat anything with sugar in it for fear of getting addicted to it again. But the last time I tried to get away with more than one day (Christmas time 2008), it took me until March to stop eating junk and 3 more years to get a grip and start induction again. I'm only having a couple lc/sf things for ONE day this year!

We survived Thanksgiving here by making an entire low-carb dinner: Turkey, LC stuffing, LC cranberry sauce, LC squash casserole, etc. If I could have figured out how to replace the french fried onions, I would have low-carbed the green bean casserole too! Our hard work was rewarded and we didn't gain weight on Thanksgiving (I've actually lost a couple pounds since Thursday). We also hosted a lot of family so we got to show off how tasty low-carb Thanksgiving can be and how the lack of carbs means no post-meal nap.

Congrats on all of the success, keep up the good work!

I had thanksgiving yesterday. hubby worked so we put it off til the weekend.
went to moms. All I ate was turkey, bit of gravy and about 6 spoons of dressing. AND I HAVE to say after that I was stuffed, but that dressing, I swear I started to crave sweets a few hrs later. big time.

if I ate what you ate I would be sick LOL no way I can go back to heavy breads. that bit of stuffing I ate was notice enough to me to stay away from those carbs.

congrats on getting back on plan right away and knocking out those cravings fast!
Me, I can't take that chance anymore.

I realize I need to tow the line and give up foods. easier for me that way. I am the type to crave and real fast I can go off plan for a while, feel miserable again and probably gain. No way I can let that happen. You guys have great willpower to get back on plan and stay there.

Yup! I also had a Thanksgiving filled with indulgence, and then promptly got back on the low carb wagon. I know that there are many on here that are totally against "going off plan" days, but I find them very important in helping me stay the course. If this is to be a way of eating for life, I have to be able to indulge once in a while or I will never be able to maintain this lifestyle.

Good luck on you and your wife's continued weight loss.........
