I have started to establish some planning for the holiday season It is going to be difficult to miss celebrations for Thanksgiving, My Birthday, Christmas, about half of my friends have birthdays in the next two months so I will have to work around celebrations and dinners during that time. Halloween will be fine as I have never been a big sweets eater in the first place.
But I am going to publish these goals/rewards attached to the holidays. I have lost a little over 30 pounds as of today (unofficial, but accurate). I plan to spend Thanksgiving with friends/family and I will have actual food on Thanksgiving day for one meal, but only if i have met a specific weight goal. If my weight is below 237.4 pounds I will give up one shake on Thanksgiving and I will have Turkey, a small amount of dressing and "clean" vegetables" That means nothing in a casserol. I will not have bread (outside of the dressing). Nor will I have desert. My official weigh in date for that meal will be Tuesday November 20th. That gives me 35 days to reach that goal. If I have not met this goal by that date. I will be doing something else versus food for Thanksgiving.
