How I Did on Thanksgiving

I've been reading a lot of posts about people eating their Thanksgiving dinner, and I have to add that I didn't make a big deal about dinner this year. I did feel bad for my family for a few minutes, and I told them I felt bad, but they were OK with it.

I had a slice of turkey, a tablespoon of green beans, a tablespoon of dressing, and scalloped potatoes. The turkey was good -- honey baked -- 'nuff said! Everything else was just okay. I ate the greenbeans, and left the other food alone. Overall I was satisfied with what I'd eaten -- not too much food, chewed to death, and paused between bites. I am still amazed by the portion size, though. I think back on what I'd consumed at Thanksgiving dinners in the past, and I really get turned off. That is something I'm going to have to work on. I have to have forgiveness for myself for the past, the present, and the future.
