So, I would say the problem started with Oreo-cookie shakes. I'd pick up one on my way home from walking in the park, conveniently ignoring that they have more calories than I would have burned walking for an hour or so.

Then, there was McDonald's iced coffee. Delicious. The perfect way to wake up in the morning. 270 calories.

And then, my laziness encouraged me to get a McSkillet breakfast burrito as long as I was going through the drive-thru. 610 calories, and no need to cook. Or buy breakfast food.

And, yes, I gained about five pounds. It was annoying. So, I promised myself I'd make a serious effort to lose weight when I got done with the 3-Day. And let me tell you, losing weigh is just as annoying as gaining weight. Maybe more.

I'm trying Nutrisystem. I guess you can say I'm a fan of the Glycemic index, although I have no idea what it is. I think they pump you full of protein and fiber and figure that will be enough to keep you from eating massive amounts of bad carbs. This afternoon, I ate something called BBQ soy crisps (they're kinda like rice cakes) as a snack. And let me tell you, I was hungry enough that I didn't think it was that weird.

But after I work out, I crave carbs. Pasta. Like mac and cheese. Or Ramen noodles.

As of this morning, though, I've lost five pounds. And this little black jacket thing that I wore all the time without buttoning it can now be buttoned. And looks totally cute.

If I do say so myself :)

    WOOO HOOO!!! Way to go Jillian!! Believe me, I know what it is like not to be able to get that cue blouse or jacket to meet in the middle further more button. Keep it up!

    FYI - my husband lost 70 pounds on Nutri Systems. Now I think it might be my turn. You would think all the walking we did training we would have lost weight, but those after walk snacks sneek up on us. But I keep telling myself it was for a good cause. Now the good cause would be so I don't have to buy bigger clothes.
    Good luck & hang in there, you can do it.
