I’m up in the country visiting my parents for the week and so I went with our Aunt Jackie to a Weight Watchers meeting today and so she could check out a new location.
‘Let’s talk turkey’ 😉
The meeting topic was – Who or what stresses you about the holidays?
Some stresses are:
Getting everything ready at the same time and IN time
Clean house getting food together
Too many food choices
All that cooking!
Shopping for everything
Not knowing the menu
Many family’s have – Food pushers
‘I made it just for you.’
We have to remember that its not us – It’s abt them.
Reasons why people are food pushers:
Sabatoge – jealousy, resentment, frustration with themselves
They love people with food
they love the praise and/or flattery
What do we say to a FP aka food pusher not fat person! hahaha
No thank you
Put theem off
Tips for if ur hosting Thanksgiving:
Set the table now
Don’t wait to count forks & chairs till tomorrow
Clean early or surface clean only
Recheck shopping list
Chop veggies or buy prechopped
Delegate chores & menu
Buy glad bowls with kids
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Last minute T-day tips:
Do not skip breakfast!! very important!!
Don’t forget portions matter- use your WW measuring ladles!!
Use a smaller plate
Check out the table first
pile your plate of veggies
TNT- use the ‘things not touching’ on your plate rule to not overload your plate
Eat while sitting down
Don’t hover over food table
Don’t sit next to someone you used to get in trouble with
What are you thankful for?
#1 should be that we’re on this side of the grass!!! hahahaha 😉
