Onederful

In spite of Mother Nature, I am finally back in Onederland.  Lost pretty decently this week and a little from last week obviously.  

Took a laxative yesterday so that helped with the bowels.  My intestine likes to hold onto poo like my thighs like to hold onto pizza.  I shudder to think that my life is beginning to revolve around bowel movements, and I'm not even 80 years old yet.  Yikes.

Had a good Thanksgiving yesterday since hubby worked Thursday, followed the two bite rule, with the exception of turkey which I get 6 ounces of...

I even made a veggie casserole, which turned out pretty decently since it was my virgin voyage into that cooking genre.  I used acorn squash among a bevy of other veggies that I can stand.  The squash ended up with a nice consistency and tasted almost like sweet potatoes, and it took on the flavor of what was around it.  I was very pleasantly surprised.


And the cup of asiago cheese holding it all together didn't hurt. ;-)  Again, I only was allowed two bites so it all worked out and the scale was on my side again today.


Also, got some tasty mild green tea that I have been drinking like water.  It's been nice since our weather has been a bit chilly the past couple of days.  Also got some holiday gingerbread tea today at Whore Foods-does anyone else have any yummy calorie free teas that they are fond of?


Hope the holiday weekend is treating you all well!

I tried to drink white or green teas instead of coffee, but ultimately was unable to make the switch.

I am glad to read you had a good Thanksgiving.

Teavana.com or your local teavana store at the mall. Super yummmy teas in about 100 varieties. I have about 18 of their teas that I love. It's all I drink, besides water.

Good for you! And I had to laugh at this because I asked my husband the other day if he though other married couples discussed our poop as often as we do!

Great holiday victory! I love green tea. I drink it hot and cold, all day, every day. I've convinced myself it's the secret to dieting success, but who knows. Good job with all of it!

A loss in Thanksgiving -- can only stare in awe at the screen. What's the two-bite rule? As in, you can only have two bites of anything? I should have adopted that....

Fruit can help to loosen the bowels. If you have 9 servings in one day, make sure you are on the potty if you feel the need to sneeze. Just saying.
