Wow! It was as if I were reading a post of mine. I lost 40 pounds in about six months last year. Around Thanksgiving last year, I started having a few cheat meals here and there. That turned into two cheat months. To make you feel better, I put on 16 pounds in two months (!). You are so right--everything counts and it certainly does add up quickly. I'm happy to say that I'm back on the wagon and making progress again.
