Thanks, Melinda, kirstykay, and CJJ. I really appreciate the support.
These past few days have been pretty good in spite of my grandmother passing way. I'm just looking forward to going to the funeral on Tuesday and reminiscing with my family about the good times we spent with her.
I'm still following the plan. Sometimes I eat more flour products than I would like to, but for the most part, I've been keeping it down to eating about one serving of flour products a day. Yesterday I had a burrito from Moe's Southwest Grill. It was filling, but I was disappointed by how salty it tasted. I will make sure that I stay away from the salsa the next time because I think that contributed to most of the salty taste. What I like about Moe's is that unlike most people I can eat Mexican food and not get all of the fattening stuff like sour cream, cheese, and guacamole. What I do to get the most for my money is I order an Art Vandalay Junior, and I have them put the tortilla at the bottom of a rice bowl then stack everything on top of it so that way I can get more lettuce, pico de gallo, etc. than I would get with a burrito, and it's easier for me to eat cosnidering that I have braces.
Overall, I'm enjoying the plan although I am concerned about going out of town next week. I uisually fall way off plan when I go out of town. I need a good solid plan to follow, and I need to understand that the food is never so good that it's worth sabatoging all that I've worked for.
