Those dreaded nachos and my 2.4 lb gain!

Saturday, May 23, 2009

I had such an awesome loss last week... -8.2 lbs at Thursday's weigh-in.

I was so busy yesterday! Lunch at Casa Fiesta I shared chicken fajitas with my husband, Todd.

Haircut at 1pm then an unplanned 4 hours at Home Depot shopping for yard flowers.

Friends called while I was in line at Home Depot and invited us to join them at Casa Fiesta for dinner. My husband did not want to spend additional money eating out so he suggested the two of us share nachos-- WOW, very high-calorie choice!!! And the scale the next morning (Saturday) showed a 2.4 lb gain because of these food choices.

Now, I've really gotta watch what I eat-- keep it simple, one-ingredient foods for the rest of the weekend if I have a hope of releasing the extra gain... my body does not give up a gain as easily as it did when I was young.

    Camille-You are doing fantastic! Don't worry, it is probably the sodium content that caused that gain. You will be fine, I know it! I think it is true when you eat home, simple meals, you do better than eating out. Everything is salted! Have a wonderful Pink weekend. Enjoy your planting!
