My in-laws visited, which was nice because they are good people, but as I know I have mentioned before, my mother-in-law is overweight and has been trying to lose weight her entire life. The problem is, she has legitimate hypoglycemia, so she has to eat often to keep her blood sugar up, (she has passed out on occasions) but she way over does it and that's hard to explain to her. She eats a lot of protein, fiber, and fats to help slow the absorption of the sugar, which is good but she goes overboard. And then she just can't figure out why she can't lose weight. And she tries to exercise, but her exercise is
Anyway, the good thing was, they didn't get into town until Thanksgiving evening, and that meant I didn't have to eat all day. Husband and I were both busy getting the house ready, so he didn't even notice I hadn't eaten. I also managed to only have one helping of each dish I consumed, so overall, better than I was anticipating.
Really for the 4 days my in-laws were here, I kept my intake pretty low until yesterday. I ate and drank way too much yesterday so that was the primary reason I was expecting a larger gain this morning.
Also, welcome back to those of you who can't resist this place around the holidays! It always seems to work that way. Like, the force-feeding and strolls down memory lane remind us of how thin we promised ourselves we'd be by this time this year, and how hard we broke those promises. I knew when I logged in today there would be a few familiar blogs from whom I hadn't heard in a while. I was right. Hello!
