How Many Pieces of Pie Did You Eat Yesterday?

Last week I quizzed you all about pie. And after asking about the calorie counts and fat content of popular holiday pies, many of you were unswayed by the numbers and remained determined to enjoy your pie.

Now it is the day after Thanksgiving, and I am wondering . . .

I was at my in-laws 1,000 miles away from home, and by GOSH I had a piece of pie if I wanted it! I had two on Thanksgiving, dang, maybe it was THREE, I can't remember. But I'm 5'8" and 129 lbs, I'm doin alright. I starved myself down to 115 lbs for a couple of years and I was NOT NICE to be around! I am doing much better now and STILL look good. BE HAPPY, PEOPLE! If that means going to the gym a lot, AWESOME. But this is your life, and you're never going to get back all the days you're GROWLING around depriving yourself of too many things all the time. BALANCE is truly what we ALL need and should strive for!

I'm not going to lie, I ate a TON of sweets on Thanksgiving...well, really throughout the whole weekend. Cookies, cake, pie, pizza, Chinese food, Thanksgiving food, etc. etc. etc. Ha, it was fun while it lasted, but now I'm reeling it in and getting my eating, weight, and work out routine back under control!

Two. But over the weekend I ate a whole one I believe, what is it with people thinking that pie is breakfast? How do I explain that to my mother in law?

I didn't eat any pie, but our neighbor makes these chocolate truffles made with liquor...I think I had 4! I also had a lot of wine...no guilt here, though!

I had some cake and a few cookies...no regrets. I must say some of the people on here seem borgerline pro-anorexic with all this "I rarely indulge" and I went to the gym twice that day and then walked later and .....WOW LIVE A LITTLE!

One small piece of homemade, decadent, pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Since I made the pie with cream it was so filling and satisfying that I had no desire for any more that day.Unfortunately there were leftovers, so it will end up being a total of three slices. Don't feel guilty in the slightest. Everything else at Thanksgiving was pretty healthy since I made it all myself and I rarely indulge.

that's one of the great things to be in a southern home for the holiday when that's not my norm. all the pies that they make here are things that i'm not used to and aren't really my taste, so i'm easily able to stay away from eating even just one piece. :) my mom always makes a fruit pie and that's something that i would have normally tried, but since this year we had pecan or buttermilk those are something that i would really rather avoid

I had a one slice of pumpkin cheesecake. But I also had cookies, apple cake, dark chocolate, red wine, etc. Thanksgiving is the only time I indulge in food, so I'm okay with it.Besides, I'm really fit, and my metabolism is high. My body can burn up that food, no problem. One of my Mom's Thanksgiving guest commented to me on how flat my abs were (even after all that food). She wanted to know my exercise routine. Right after Thanksgiving, I return back to my fit lifestyle. I really gain no weight whatsoever.

It was ridiculous. I ate the equivalent of half a pie. My sister and roommate got up early and made special gluten-free pie crusts so that I could have pie too. I so rarely get to eat stuff like that! I went a little nuts.

I split one, so I had 1/2, with no crust (I've always hated crust!) :) it was good. And I'm glad because last year, I wouldn't allow myself pie, but this year I let myself let go and just relax and enjoy the day.

I didn't eat any pie, but I did bake an apple pie that a lot of people ate. I also went to the gym today and yesterday to work off everything I ate...I don't usually overdo it on Thanksgiving.
