    Nope!
  • I am counting how many times I eat your moms apple pie.
  • Not counting one single calorie. It is one day. It might set you back for the week but it's Thanksgiving, EAT DRINK and BE MERRY!

    I just had a non calorie counting day 10 days ago for my birthday - not ready for another one yet! I will count calories.

    I plan to enjoy the day, log everything I eat and move on.

    Yup just because I wanna see the final number :) I am hoping for over 6000 :)

    Yes! Definitely this. Plus, I'm usually so full after Thanksgiving that the weekend after is pretty light.

    Aww, you can do better then that :smile:

  • Yep, I'm logging every bite and counting every calorie. But I probably won't limit myself, just keep track so I know how it stacks up. I've been doing this for 4 months, logging every bite, and I'm still getting a feel for what a big meal feels like and how many calories it is when I'm not trying to restrict myself.
  • Yup - But only for the sake of keeping tabs.

    I go by the 90/10 rule so If or When I go over that day's worth it's no big because it's freaking Thanksgiving and it will be my 10 for the week.

    I will attempt to log but it is not going to be that accurate and I am pretty sure that my macors will be off, but its all good ...6000 calories here I come!

    I plan on logging everything. I'll definitely have my food scale handy Thursday! Mostly out of curiosity, but also because I am going home to see my family for Christmas and I have a goal weight I want to be at by the time I get home

    so you are really going to whip out the old food scale at thanksgiving dinner????? I am really just curious..

    I am not going to count anything. I will eat larger portions of the lower calorie options and smaller portions of the high calorie options and enjoy the day. I will log, but I am not concerned with the final tally as long as I enjoyed myself.

    calories. whats macros? I did TG last sunday with the family and I had a huuuuge helping of green salad by that I mean half the plate, a piece of turkey and some NOT glazed yam I just steamed it with cinnamon and ate half of one yam, then a small piece of costco pumpkin pie for dessert a little while later. I think I did very good.

    I was thinking about it, but I'd have to input a LOT of recipes. After making all that food I don't think I'm going to be bothered with putting it in. Although, because of leftovers in the days following I might have no choice... curses. :grumble:

    Nope...I don't log anymore anyway, but even when I did I didn't worry about holidays and special occasions.

    I don't know ...I just think that holidays should be exempt from the food scale...that is not really based on anything, just a personal preference/belief...
