Harlan…house rule is if you're on strike you have to do the dishes! That would really suck on Thanksgiving! lol The days of the stuffing your face then crashing on the couch and sleeping through the Cowboy game are over though. Am thinking an afternoon walk with my 2 labs will keep me on track without overdoing it! :-) Just keep saying it…willpower…willpower!

I know how your feeling Harlen, but I refuse to be on strike for the things we can eat, so I will do sugar free fat free desserts for myself. I won't eat the really good stuff I use to eat, cause then what sense will it make? I would be throwing all my exercising down the drain and my little weight loss too. I like the way Im feeling and the way I look now so I got to keep up the good the work to make sure my blood sugar stays good too. So we can all do it and hold hands long distance. We got to be strong and we can.

I guess I am lucky—my favorite part of the dinner is the turkey. Without her, there is no Thanksgiving for me!

I like your sediments Harlan!! My diabetic nurse told me to not feel deprived to take 1 tablespoon of the things I like and try to keep it under control. Boy it that going to be difficult! Have a great turkey day. Eat more turkey so you can sleep more afterwards to ward off all the desserts!!!

Harlen, you sound like Dr. Seuss and "green eggs and ham" Here's hoping you and all of us have the will power to avoid the temptations, or sample lightly. Hope you have a happy.

This time of year is not good for diabetic people. All the candies, the cookies, the pies, the cakes, it's very difficult for me to be around all those goodies and not cheat. God help me, I do want to succeed.

Please Mary, Mother of God, and my Mother in all my times of trouble and joy, help me feast with my eyes, sample with my nose and keep my mouth shut at this Thanksgiving table. Amen (I'm saying this prayer in addition to grace on THNKSGVG Day!!!)
