Quick question... Know any really fast and easy Medifast recipes I can do with jalepenos? (they're whole)? Looking forward for any comment. Another quick question... My mom always cooks dinner on Thanksgiving, but due to some physical problems she's having, cannot cook Thursday. My little sister was really disappointed and being the soft hearted person that I am, I felt sorry for her and volunteered to cook. I am looking forward to hosting it since I love to cook and entertain.

I will also be making healthy foods for myself, but know that I will be tempted by the cornbread dressing, dumplings, and sweet potato casserole, and rolls. Does anyone else have these same fears? This will be the first of many holidays that I will experience this. I don't want to fail myself, but must admit that I don't know if I have enough.

Willpower.

To overcome the temptations..

Thanks for.

Listening.

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could help you..

My nut approved everything on my menu for turkey day but instructed me to eat the turkey first, then veggies, then potatos, then stuffing+ if I wasn't full by then, then I could have a bite or two of pie and by then I should be packed full!.

Eat your protein first. Don't tell yourself you can't have it- just eat the right things first so you can't have as much of it!..

I am limited to 5 or 6 bites then I feel it gets stuck and I feel like throwing up. So this year, we are going to a local restaurant for Thanksgiving and then back to our house for no sugar dessert and Wii. I have been tossing around in my head what my 5 bites are gonna be of. It will be my first day of soft foods..

Hope.

You have a wonderful time!!..

Cornbread stuffing was the first dumping experience (I've dumped 3 times total in 4 and almost 1/2 years) Thanksgiving 2006 I spent 1 hour curled in a ball dumping.

I couldn't resist that first T-giving I thought what's a few spoons. Never made that mistake again. I'm actually glad it happened taught me a big lesson early on and I don't mess now... this is too important..

From then on I stick to turkey (great protein), veggies (mmmm) and a wls friendly dessert... planning to make pumpkin protein mini muffins.

Or a praline pumpkin ricotta bake.

Cooked my 1st Thanksgiving Dinner today for the family here. On tues I go to my sisters and cook it again. Being the cook, I found it easier to make the "traditional" foods and mix it with a bit of what I can have. DO NOT CHEAT! Tasting as you go will only make it worse! I made the sweet potatoes with honey and pecans a tad of brown suger mixed up w/some baking power (to fluff it) and everyone loved it. I made the gravey with chicken stock (lowfat of coarse) and when I sat down, I measured my 5 oz. That was it.



I am almost 4 months out and looking forward to next Thurs when I can do it all again!.

(I sent most the left overs home with the daughter and only saved what my husband and I will eat)..

Can you recruit your little sister to help? Give her the tasks that you think you can't handle. Whatever dishes are your toughest to give up, make her do it and supervise while she does it or just ask her to bring it when she comes. In our family we divide everything up so my aunt doesn't have to do all the cooking anymore and everyone shows up with a crockpot or 2 and some tupperware and dishes covered with saran wrap and we all share in the work. Maybe it is too late for this holiday, but a nice thought for the ones in the future. Just beccause it is at your house doesn't mean you have to do all the work. Share in the wealth! Just a thought!.

I always ask what can I bring? and I get assigned something. Then I bring along something I know I can eat. I always get to be the one to make our 97 yo aunt's cranberry relish recipe and I make one with sugar and one batch with splenda so I can have it. I also usually bake the pies (or buy them) and bring along some type of dessert I can have as well. Sugar free something or other. Then I add in whatever veggie I want some roasted brussel sprouts or butternut squash and I know there will be something that I can indulge in!.

Good luck!.

Codependency and the family dance of obesity and other related addictions and co-dependency blossom in the cauldron of the Medifast food related holiday, and which day isn't?.

Be prepared and do some thinking about how you will respond to the pressure, the sabotage, the comments and the conflict that may come at you from other addicts, compulsives and co-dependents!.

Forewarned is forearmed. Famiies sabotage recovery of members who have the audacity to throw off the mantle of unhealthy behaviors, which is seen as a personal assault on their life threatening behaviors..

Either the addict must discredit you or change his or her behavior? Guess which way it is likely to go?..

I'm cooking too and he eats whatever I don't. My husband's weight is coming down too this way. I can only eat a few bites anyway. I will miss having my favorite dreamy high pumpkin pie. But then again I can't stand anything sweet anyway. I'll just have my pumpkin protein.

Smoothie instead. So I guess my stomach rules my head this year!..

It may be a little too late for this, but I used splenda to make my pumkin cheese ccake and it is AWESOME! Substitute Splenda wherever you can on your deserts so that you don't have to be worried about desert. Also, check out Eggfaces's blog. She has some great and healthy casseroles. Do the traditional stuff and add some new traditions!..

Hi! I was a little worried about Thanksgiving this year, we didn't know what we were going to do. Sometimes in the past we've gone to a hotel to a buffet or we have cooked. Finally we decided to cook this year. Normally when we have cooked in the past we've made the turkey and all of the trimmings that my mom used to make, which ended up being a lot of Medifast food for just two people. Then we would have left overs for days. This being my fist Thanksgiving since my.

Surgery.

In January we have really scaled down the menu. We're fixing Cornish game hens, green beans and stuffing for my partner. She's going to stuff her hen but not mine. I'm going to stick with the protein and vegies tomorrow. I thought that I would have a hard time not being able to have pie but so far it's been OK. My partner had some pie earlier today and I was OK with not having any.

Happy turkey day to everyone...
