How to Lose Weight After Eating the Big Thanksgiving Meal ...

Ah ... enjoying the day after thanksgiving with leftovers and football and having all of my boys home for the holiday. I do have plans to paint later today as I have a few last minute things to finish up in my studio. I just spent quite a bit of time placing a HUGE order at Vistaprint. If you received the Black Friday email today, please check it out. There are a lot of great free promotional offers.  The sale lasts until Sunday night.
I will share a very funny Thanksgiving Day story with all of you. As we all sat down at the table last night my boys thought it might make sense to run upstairs and weigh themselves before they began "the big Thanksgiving feast". About an hour after dinner they ran back upstairs for the "after meal" weigh in. Believe it or not, my youngest son gained SIX pounds after the meal. So glad my cooking is so good. And yes, that was enough incentive for yours truly to stay OFF the scale for a few days.
Since my youngest son to gain weight, I promised to cook the "Thanksgiving feast" more often this next year. But ... all plans were scrapped this morning ... because my son weighed himself again and he was eight pounds lighter than the "post meal" weight. Which means he actually lost two pounds since the first weigh-in.
How come this doesn't work this way for me?
