I hope you're all able to celebrate this holiday with your family and friends.  I also hope we don't eat too much!  My plan like last year is to put small portions of the meat and some vegetables on my plate.  A slice or two of turkey, same for the ham, a small spoon of acorn squash because that's something I really enjoy (even more than mashed potatoes), a spoon of green bean casserole (OMG - when did this become tradition?  We never had that when I was growing up.)  There will be radishes and salad food, too, so I'll eat some of those.  I will pass up the mashed potatoes and gravy because I want to eat a piece of pumpkin pie afterwards.  This is not such a sacrifice or hardship in any way because since I've learned to eat more slowly, I'll be full, not stuffed, and then I'll really enjoy the pie later on - with whipped cream of course!  (And, no, I won't be eating any dressing because we're eating at my sister's house and her stuffing is, well, bland, so that's no loss.)  I will (gulp) use my glucose monitor afterwards and see the damage.  And Friday's fasting reading should be interesting because we're supposed to go over to friends' in the evening, hours after dessert at my sister's, for tea and dessert yet again.  sad   So!  I may or may not be in a good mood Friday morning when I log on here again.   mad Good luck with your choices too!  :-)

Have a great holiday and be wise, and if you're traveling, be careful.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too Lanie:) Thanks to the help here, I have kept my bs down to 90 to 100 all day even on huge doses of prednisone. I won't even cheat tomorrow because I am just getting the bs down and will be too scared! So fat the no carb, no sugar diet is no problem...I just miss milk. A big Thank you to all who have taken the time to help me:)

:-)  Happy Thanksgiving to all! :-) I'm doing the whole thing at my house, so I've been cooking all day already. I'm planning a bit of cheating myself.... a small spoon of sweet potatoes and dressing, green bean casserole and a tiny taste of cranberry. Of course my big cheat will be the filling from the pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top. Hope I survive... LOL scool . I'll diet tomorrow!!!! tongue Hope everyone has a great day!!!
