Thanksgiving on Belviq

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I had a great day.  Usually the holidays are a challenging time for those like me who struggle with weight loss.  The temptations are enormous and so are the calories.  Fortunately with the Bel-Phen combo, it was not a challenge at all.  The only challenge was to eat.

So, eating smaller portions have become the norm and my family is pretty used to it.  So, as a "joke", my brother decided to make my plate.  He said that this was all I eat anyway

What's an interesting dynamic about this "joke" is, I was always at the end of all of the fat jokes.  For example:  I piled on the food on my normal plate.  About 1/3 of the way in, I said, "My eyes are bigger than my stomach".  Normally, my brothers would jump right in and make some kind of comment about how big my stomach really is.  But this time, my brother's response was "apparently so, did you even eat?"

It's just nice to know that I don't have to worry about what others think about how much I over eat.

Oh - and I forgot to say, I lost 3 pounds this week!!  GOOOO ME!!!!
