I've been advised, by a few highly influential people, to not get down on myself. So, I shall endeavor to emphasize the positive today.
So, what's going right these days? Well, I haven't binged lately. I haven't been to a fast food drive-thru or ordered (for delivery) any off-plan foods. I've even survived a traditional feasting holiday (Thanksgiving) while preserving my LC objective and being considerate of the food choices of others.
I know that I'm about 20 lbs, or so, lighter than my previous high-weight. My clothes are fitting better. I'm setting a better example for my wife and family. And, I'm making some new friends with similar goals and a common challenge.
Maybe I'll extend my Thanksgiving sentiments a little longer than I usually do.

+ 5 slices of natural bacon
+ 3/4 of a small avocado
+ one cup of "choco-coffee" - (two tablespoons of pure cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon of instant coffee, one packet of stevia with FOS and a splash of half-and-half)
+ market-bought prime rib (approx. 4-6 oz?)
+ half-cup or so of homemade mashed cauliflower
+ leftover clean-up time:

- two slices of natural bacon
- 3 slices of tomatoes with 3 slices of mozarella, topped with mini-basil leaves and a touch of olive oil

More to come ... I hope!
