Thanksgiving report - a small deviation from plan with one adult beverage, a couple of tablespoons of gravy anf a few bites of mashed potato. The beveragecwas worth it but the other stuff had no enjoyable taste and that's a good lesson.

Welcome to all of you who recently joined this challenge. We have a nice group of dedicated low carbers here looking to stay accountable. Lets do this. So far my first week was just so-so. All was OP eating, but I'm looking to have the scale move in the other direction. We had company this weekend. I stayed out of the pizza and the muffins that showed up on the kitchen table. I also avoided the Halloween candy that my wife loaded up on in advance of the trick-or-treaters. I did have my wife put it away though. Out of sight, out of mind. In the 'bad' old days, I was always dipping into the Halloween treats before and after the 31st. These days I know that I have to stay out of it -- completely out of it -- to have any chance of staying on track. I can't do 'fun sized' candy in moderation. Abstinence works - moderation does not.

I'm also an Abstainer. Although I can eat added carbs from veg or some starch, that serves as a gateway drug for me. The next day I'd add a little more of the same, etc. Ultimately, I'd find myself out of ketosis and on my way to sugar.

Doom.

Thanks for this thread Ken! I'm not sure I'm a hundred percent committed to no off plan eating, but this thread will keep me honest about any cheats. Will definitely be on plan up to Thanksgiving, and that includes Halloween, which did me in two years ago.

Really pleased with myself this week. We had a big family birthday meal, and I stuck to my food plan.

I'm also really enjoying this thread. It's great to see so many maintaining, as its always been a problem for me itn the past following other 'diets'.

I had a 3 lb drop this week! Maybe it was just the change in routine of being on vacation this week - being at home, no stress.

I finally saw a little success with the scale, too. One down, 9 to go.

I adjusted my Jan 1 goal up 5 lbs cuz I think it was unrealistic to lose 20 lbs in 2 1/2 months.

A NSV today I put away some of my size 16 pants cuz they are falling off around my waist and butt.

Yesterday was a challenge. Details in my journal. I'm back on track today and happy to be tracking, weighing and measuring to keep myself on the straight and narrow.

I think I'm having too much dairy. Either that, or I'm eating too little food, or too often. I've tried everything I know except IF. Just can't get on board with that right now. Thanks for helping me keep honest.
