30 Days of Thanks – Day 26 (Leftovers and Willpower)

Today I am thankful for Thanksgiving leftovers – as they remind me how good the meal and company were, and because they made dinner easy for me tonight. I am also thankful for the willpower I have to throw the rest of said leftovers out so I don’t derail my weight loss.

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my daughter....it worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...


  1. Ha! Me too, but something honestly clicked in me that I now get the whole “You will get to eat tomorrow. Or at your next meal even. There is no need to overeat. Just eat until you’re full” thing. I never got that before. Same thing with my favorite foods (like say french fries, although lately I’ve been really bad with those) – you will eat them again, no need to scarf everything now!

What's your 2 sense?
