Go Ahead! Admit It!

I am here sitting at my computer desk not feeling like a stuffed turkey because this is not Thanksgiving Day today here in Canada. But I was wondering how many millions of American people tonight feel like they over ate and now are suffering the consequences. Go ahead! Admit it! Just confessing it might help the food to go down faster. Worth a try, isn't it?

I think for the first time ever, I practiced moderation during our family's Thanksgiving meal! In fact, I'm already starting to feel hungry again, so I might sneak into the kitchen and grab a slice of apple or pumpkin pie!

I bet you feel better because of the moderation. I wonder which kind of pie you ended up with!

@marlina I can lie and tell you that I just had one slice of apple pie, but in truth I had a slice of both apple and pumpkin pie! lol

I didn't overeat but I did have a good Turkey meal. Do you often overeat on your Thanksgiving day there in Canada?

I must confess that I did overate at some Thanksgiving dinners and I did not like the feeling after.

@marlina I would imagine it would definitely not be a good feeling.

I did not stuff myself. I always eat far less than most Americans. Still, what I ate was yummy, and I enjoyed it.

We seem to enjoy it more when we eat in moderation.

@marlina Which begs the question, why don't more people eat that way?

@ElizabethWallace I think if someone would know the answer to this problem, she or he would be very much sought after.

I was fine then drank a ton of water and now feel stuffed. I only had some ham, a small thing of mashed taters, some peas, a half a slice of pie and some topping, actually wasn't too big of a meal

I remember eating too much at these holiday dinners years ago. I don't do that anymore as it's not worth the discomfort. But I can always go back for more a little later so I still weigh more than I should.

I didn't overdo it too bad this year. We had breakfast and then I didn't eat anything else until we had dinner. I did have a little bit of everything but tried to keep it all to a small helping.

We do not celebrate the Thanksgiving in Europe. I think that on Christmas some Europeans eat a bit too much, but nothing compared to the US Thanksgiving.

I know a lot of Europeans who live here in Canada, and they sure have a lot of food on their table when it is holiday time.

@marlina We have many different courses, this is true, I believe that some norther countries eat more than Italians and French.

We do not/did not eat any more or less than a normal dinner. We just ate different items from normal. Neither of us felt stuffed...not everyone is a pig at Thanksgiving.

Some people are always reasonable with foods.

I wasn't really in a position to stuff myself because it wasn't really my family but my sister's son's wife's family. And it wasn't as good as my family makes. Tonight at our family dinner I will stuff myself - totally.

Actually I surprised myself and didn't eat as much as I thought I would. I don't have that uncomfortable, stuffed feeling today

Ha, ha, that's a humorous approach! I'm in New Zealand, so no turkey here

hmm! it is nice because we do not practice the thanksgiving day(s) here in my place, or maybe here in our country. But there is a cheat day, right? So maybe those who ate much consider the day their thanksgiving day.

That's usually the case when there's a special occasion since those special foods will be repeated again after a year anyway .

It is hard for most people to control their appetite when lots of food are just on the table.

Sometimes I eat too much..., but am willing to pay the consequences, its easily done to eat more than you should..... but recently I found it was not the food that made me feel bloated, it was the drink, whether it is water, or coke or lemonade.

When we have big meals, I have learned my lesson, and eat regularly and enjoy the company more. That is where I'd rather splurge is with the visiting, it has less of a negative lasting effect.

I didn't overeat, but we ate in a restaurant and I think it was chicken gravy on my potatoes and I'm allergic to chicken and my stomach is very upset.
