Lost the 3 lbs. extra water weight I was carrying from the weekend, but am still up 4.5 freakin' pounds just since August 30. I haven't been all that horrible, so am honestly thinking my experiment with the new diet to spur more weight loss and further reduce my high triglycerides had the opposite effect--maybe it still sent me into starvation mode even though it was above 1200 calories.. I'm pretty much back to the diet that helped me get my blood sugar and cholesterol down from high to normal and from 240 lbs. in Jan 2011 to 214 in Aug 2012.

"Braggin' rights" earned:
Monday: cardio class at the gym in the afternoon as scheduled, but in the evening I did an extra 7 minutes total resistance bands and AbSlide (like rolling pushups) machine instead of crashing on the sofa with my headache. Stayed off the sofa until 9PM
