    Now you might think this is silly but….when I log in my weight on my fit bit, I use the previous day’s weight even if I am down like 0.4 or whatever. In other words, I log it a bit higher, to a previous weight. Why? Well, I find that helpful for when I do gain 0.4 or something! When I gain back, it is depressing. I don’t seem to mind staying the same or a very slight bit up. Does this make sense?

    And I may well take a day off for the Super Bowl party. Will seek to keep things toned down as best I can though. But I know the last time I took a day off, it was 3 days before I dared to weigh in again: had to get rid of the extra salt and so forth.

    I have a trip coming up and will be staying with other people and also needing to eat out sometimes. This will be a busy trip and I will have to do the best I can but I doubt will be able to stick with Phase One. Will return to it when I get back until I reach my goal.

    My sister, who I haven’t seen in over 6 years, is on a business trip to my home state this week! I had no idea she would be this close by until my mother mentioned it last Saturday. My sister did finally call two days ago to tell me to expect a box of fresh lemons in the mail; they had just arrived (mmm, so good). Anyway, we have decided to meet for dinner before she flies home. Thursday, I will drive 3+ hours to the metro area hotel where she is staying, dine with her, and then spend the night in her suite. She has a 6 AM flight the next morning… I know I am going to cheat. I have been exercising and actually gaining weight lately. I think this short break will do me some good psychologically. I’ll try not to go completely overboard, as in a decadent desert like Fudge Overboard! I think a visit with my always-has-been-thin sister will encourage me.
