I stopped mysef after two cookies, one peanut butter and one chocolate chip. I made them, so I had to sample them.

Margey, that would be wonderful for your daughter and her two adopted kids to be able to leave Africa for here.

Even though I didn't feel well (over exerted myself with workout), I stuck to my eating plan last evening and this morning. The lack of extra sugar (despite cravings) helped a headache go away without Lortab. I'm so happy I stuck with it!!

Yesterday I put a roast with potatoes, carrots and onions in the crock pot yesterday and a friend stopped by after she got done from work so we could have supper together. We had a nice chat. She also helped me move some furniture around so I finally got my desk set up. Today.... I'll work on office work!

I will go to TOPS today... one highlight of the week. I've been with this Taking Off Pounds Sensibly group for ten years, at least I've been with them whenever I'm in the States. We meet each Thursday morning.

I've been back on track for a few days now and it feels good. Of course, it helps to know that I have to weigh in for our Maintain Not Gain program that they ran over the holidays at work. Just a couple days more be weigh in.
