I'm having it a my house this year, so I can control how the food gets prepared. It will just be us three and my brother and sister in law. Usually it is a big gathering with all my siblings. They are all going to their in-laws, so it's just us. I'm very happy to have a low key gathering. Going to try the healthy stuffing recipe I found here and a WW Green Bean recipe too.

It'll be me, my mom, my Dad and my cat this year. We'll be preparing a sumptuous table (even my cat will be having Thanksgiving dinner themed cat food) and will toast to another year together. I'm excited to be home and to eat some great food. I also look forward to exercising self control when it comes to the eating....BIG challenge for me.

Have a large breakfast with the kids. Start dinner early so that we can eat around 12:30-1ish and nibble all day on leftovers. Jason will be doing day after Thanksgiving shopping/Thanksgiving night shopping, so I'll be sleeping and relaxing with the kids!!!

My plan for Thanksgiving is to not do any emotional eating if possible. There has been some extra emotional stress in my life the past few days and I do not want it to coincide with a banquet of food that I will soon be in front of. My plan is to stick to pre-thought out portions. I also plan to walk and exercise prior so I can count on some help with calorie burning.

On Thanksgiving day, we will be going to my sister's house. I'll be bringing the stuffing - our family recipe. Then on Friday, I'll be cooking a whole Thanksgiving meal so that we can have leftovers as we all love turkey.

I will be cooking again this year. There will be only three of us, my husband, myself, and my daughter. I will try to make dinner as healthy as possible.

I am cooking the dinner this year and I'm making it as healthy as I can. Low sodium, low fat green bean casserole, mashed potatoes made with Smart Balance milk and margarine and no salt. Turkey breast only, no gravy and no stuffing. Fruit pies made as healthy as possible, we also make our own cranberry sauce with fresh cranberries and oranges using splenda instead of sugar.

Going to my brother's with the family. They have a traditional Tgiving meal. I am glad to not be the host as that means left overs and I would probably be raiding the refrig in the evenings... my weakness!

Oddly enough, it will be my 6 mo anniversary having the lapband. I will take a small spoonful of all and enjoy every bite !!!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! emoticon

Usual day with my brother and family. I will be careful but already expect to go over calories even if I taste a little of all. One day doesn't make or break it with moderation. Everyone have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

I am not losing this fat - I am removing it for good.

I am in Sydney, so I am hoping we can find a restaurant that has US Thanksgiving...

It will be just Robert, my daughter Ashley and I. Ashley will help me put together a Traditional Turkey dinner.

turkey, stuffing (Only in the bird), green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy, rolls, pumpkin pie for dessert w/ cool whip.

Being this is my 1st Thanksgiving with my Gastric Lap Band I see a very small plate. I will more or less be cooking healthy. reduced sodium cream of mushroom soup in the gb casserole. Maybe 1 teaspoon of gravy or not even that. No roll for me thank you. cool whip light on the pie.

Everyone can accomodate to their needs.

You don't ahve to go over or be stuffed to enjoy the meal. Enjoy the real meaning of the Holiday and give thanks for your blessings.

I may even substitue the pie for cake as it's my birthday on this special day.
