Niteman, Thanks. Just keep posting. That helps with motivation.

I did look at the fried mushrooms, potatoes, cauliflower etc. Decided I would feel better if I did not eat it. I did look at the cheese cake. Again, decided I'd feel better after eating a granny smith apple.

I did have 1/3 of a "sierra mist' type drink. It was way too sweet. Glad I only had 1/3rd. Went back to water and tea (unsweet).

The last night they had ice cream shakes. I did have one, but I did not sleep well (from the sugar in my digestion, I guess). I really should have only had a bite or two.

Thanks, William. Yes, I was very pleased. I was expecting to see more of a gain. While I ate good things, my quantity of food was probably up from normal. Wondered what that might do.

I met a fellow there who has dropped over 200 pounds in the past 4 years! I suspect that one of his strategies is SLOW EATING. He really took his time at downing the food. He also normally exercises a fair amount. He was an encouragement.

This past weekend I attended a five day IT conference, mostly guys, mostly introverts, mostly geeky. Food was all you can eat. The opening day comments from previous attenders was this was the 'gain 5 pounds' event of the year. But they did have lots of healthy good choices along with the pepsi, pizza, and junk food.

I stuck pretty close to my eating plan, with minor exceptions. Even the banquet dinner ... catering provided an alternate meal to suit my eating plan! How gracious!

Looks like I was up 1.2 pounds for the weekend. Yahoo!
