Can you help me figure out what to do?

I'm no longer dieting, but I am limiting myself to 1850-1900 calories in order to maintain my weight. I allow myself two days a week when I can eat whatever I want. I've already had my two days.

The thing is, I am going out of town for Thanksgiving, and there are a lot of leftovers in the fridge. I'd hate to let them go to waste. My toddler certainly won't eat them. It would be too difficult to "calorie-count" these foods because they are casseroles/mixed recipes.

Do you think I should ass a THIRD eat-what-you-want day, just to get rid of the leftovers, or do you think I should stick to the calorie counting?

  • Stick to your goals! If you want some of the leftovers have a very small portion!

  • Eat your leftovers in small portions. Losing weight isn't about what you eat it's how much you eat in a portion. I lost 58 lbs eating in small portions at a time.

  • try to freeze the leftovers or eat them in small amounts, it isn't good to waste food but you shouldn't eat if you aren't hungry.
