I somehow think it's a bit abnormal to lose weight over Thanksgiving, but it appears that we both did.  I am at 143.0 this morning on the new scale, and Lee reported being down a bit yesterday.  Crazy!  On the holiday itself, I had a fat-bomb smoothie, probably a few hunks of cheese to make it to the family meal, and then had chips and guac, rice crackers and Boursin cheese, turkey, salad, cranberry sauce, green beans, a baked sweet potato, and pecan-crust pie at dinner - and some wine.  Really pretty Paleo, all things considered.  Most of the rest of the weekend involved a big breakfast, no lunch or very little lunch, and dinner out, frankly.  Some of which was Mexican, but since I've got things under control, I opted for fajitas rather than enchiladas for dinner, to lower the carb count a bit.  Here's yesterday:
  • bacon
  • coconut-flour based "bread" made with leftover sweet potatoes (it was a bit dense, unfortunately, but didn't taste too bad - I toasted it and spread it with butter)
  • tea with cream
  • the usual supplements
  • walnuts
  • cheese
  • chocolate
  • ham with mustard
  • chips and salsa
Was that it?  It may have been.  Neither of us was very hungry at dinner time, so we reheated some leftover ham and ate it, pretty much by itself.  That's how it's supposed to work, right?  If you're hungry, eat; if not, don't.

Our new scale gave both of us a false sense of wonderfulness for a while this weekend - we'd positioned it so that one corner would rest on the floor molding if someone stood on it, and the result was to remove about 3 pounds from our weight.  At one point yesterday morning, I thought I'd hit 140.  It was nice to see, and if things keep going as they are right now, I probably will for real within the month.
