I made it through Christmas without straying from the diet at all! I even had my family here for Christmas Eve supper and did all the cooking for it. I feel great! We enjoyed a wonderful meal together and I just added a few extra things for the family to eat and I stuck to what I could eat. I put some veggies out for them that I couldn’t eat like carrots, pickled beets and olives. I also made baked potatoes and had store-bought rolls and a dessert for the family.
I was able to eat all the other food I made. I cooked a standing rib roast and had a big lettuce salad and lots of on-plan vegetables. I took my two cups worth of vegetables, had my lettuce salad & meat and was perfectly satisfied with my meal.
I am feeling really wonderful that I managed to get through the holiday and not fall off of my diet at all.
