Newish mama here 🙋‍♀️ Thanks for doing this Delene!! I've been working hard to get back to pre-baby body and feel like my normal self again, but as we all know, Thanksgiving is a time to eat all of the things. I'm usually pretty good at discipline, and have been following a keto/paleo diet that has worked wonders for me - but I cannot resist homemade pie and I know my family will expect me to indulge. Any advice on staying on track while still enjoying? Thank you!! #QA
