    Looks like everyone has slept in, so I will start todays Challenge

    It's a sick start. Weigh-in 188 Hasn't budged in several days. Humph.

    Breakfast - 12 cherries, cup of joe w/1 tsp xxx, 1/2 tbs half & half

    Going to Cope today, will be gone all day. I didn't get but half hour of sleep. So I will sleep the long jaunt of our ride. See you all when I get back. Not taking a picnic lunch, we'd have to eat it in the car for one. I'll just watch it today. ha.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -186; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Congrats Kathy!!! You'll slip over into Onederland soon.

    Judy, you're down a lb. even after eating out. Great!

    I should have joined this challenge. I have not done well with food this holiday weekend and am up a couple of lbs. The weather has been horrible (today we have sun though) and my mood went right along with it. Had lots of outdoor active plans which couldn't happen with all the rain. Bad mood = bad food choices for me. I KNOW it and yet, it still happens. Frustrating!

    Hi Debbie it isn't too late to join kali has joined but doesn't have a tape measure so no worries join in
    If they had still had the great dessert menu I would have indulged more while eating out ..But the peanut butter pie was no longer on the menu Lucky for me cause that was too good
    and I would have caved ...My nutrition was just OK after eating out but it was weird no vegies for the whole day ..
    I did some walking today and another 20 minutes of weeding the garden those darn weeds were taking over I had to put a stop to it .. You will get back on plan Debbie this maintaining is harder than it would seem to be keeping a watch over our behaviors is what it takes because we got fat in the first place because of those behaviors... can;t let old demons back in ..

    Weigh in was 191.0

    Up a little from yesterday, but I'm pretty sure that the salad that I had last night had extra sodium in it.

    Breakfast was one tortilla with cheese and salsa on it.

    I took a nap and slept through lunch. Right now I'm having 1 cup on pistachios in shells. Waiting for husband to wake up from his nap to decide what to have for dinner.
