    sounds like me. on wednesday (our day) i remembered a job i was supposed to have delivered during your day; i sent it off (client never asked for it), and client said thank you the next morning. and just now i remembered a job i was supposed to have delivered on friday. oops. i wonder if the client was even there yesterday...

    at any rate, you are right - i am having an awful time keeping within the fat range (i exceed it most days) and above the protein limit - yet staying within the calories. i exceed the calories by a tiny bit most days, but i exceed the exercise considerably, so that has worked out. but i see what you mean, it really is important to see just what you are eating. and think twice about what i add when i have to write it down.

    i gave up my evening glass (or two) of wine last week, after a slightly elevated liver test, which has certainly aided the calorie cutting process. i have always envied those who have something like soda to give up, because it is such easy calories - never did like the stuff myself...

    thank you both for your support - i'm going to do it...

    what Liz said. but yes, recording what i eat is a major part in my continued success, imo. it also helps me get reasonably close to the protein goals and not exceed the fat range. now if i were only as good about recording incoming work ... just caught up on stuff since feb 22 ... and the worst is that the 3 i just missed, and wrote apologetically to clients saying, right away if you still want it (all revisions) ... all wrote back to say yes :-(
    (sometimes i think i must be awfully good because i myself would have fired myself long ago ... maybe my clients know more about the quality of the competition than i do?)

    Hey, minor setback, you're exercising really well. Don't be too hard on yourself!
