|Baked Three Cheese Queso!|
I know what you're thinking: "how is this encouragement, exactly?"
SHOCK OHMYWORD I AM SHOCKED!
I was down a half pound.
And that, my friends, is the power of cumulative activity in combination with eating well. Many "diet" programs have the concept of a "cheat day", or a down day, or a day when you don't count points, and believe you me, I am not a medical professional, so you probably shouldn't listen to me anyway, but ... if you pay attention to what you're doing, and are in a regular exercise program (walking counts!), then the occasional Baked Three Cheese Queso day will not kill you.
One of my brothers put it this way: "Day-to-day variation seems to be related more to the water content of your body and the material content of your digestive system than to the fat content of your body." In other words, try to poop before you weigh yourself :)
