    @200Karen ...you can do it. I know what it is like getting of track. I did the same this week. Started eating way too many carbs as they were the quickest and easiest things to grab.
    Good Luck Everyone

    August 8 183.0
    August 15 183.4
    August 22 184.4 oops up..
    I know why. Started eating too much bread & carbs this week. Going to have to get back on track.
    August 29 184.6. Was snacking alot this week. I have been dealing with a Migraine and TMJ pain for a week. You think with jaw pain I would stop eating but NO..I ate more. Have an appointment Friday with my pain Dr and hope he can do something for me. He does walk in so I may try to get in to see him today.
    We are still dealing with alot of smoke. Today is really bad.
