A quick entry...

I have some unexpected neighbor kids over this morning, so I'll have to make this quick.

Yesterday, I went to a Chinese buffet. Yeah - I know - not the sort of place you generally go when you're trying to lose weight. Unfortunately I didn't have much choice - I meet up with some ex-colleagues for lunch every month or so and this was their choice. I could miss the food and my friends, or go and hold myself accountable. Before I went, I found out the calorie content of all my favorite foods - gotta love the internet - and made a rough plan that would use most of my calories for the day but not all of them. I ate according to that plan, and then just had a really really light dinner last night.

And guess what? I'm down 2 lbs this morning! My body is strange. I should be holding onto all kinds of water because of the Chinese food I had yesterday, and yet I actually weigh less. I give up - my body is a puzzle I'll never solve. Perhaps I should just keep at it and not analyze things too much. Here's hoping it lasts until the weekend, although it should, since all my food between now and then is nice and plannable.

Very smart move with the Chinese Buffet. I'll definitely do the same when I know I'm going to be eating out.

And congratulations on the weight loss. ;)
