Mike, that 1 stinkin' sodium point left on the plate (that image made me literally chortle out loud) was apparently quite lonely. Look at how many more came to join it over the week (and sadly, they all ended up in my belly ). Working hard to tame those goofy points, but it's tough!

Same here, Carolynn. Once Tab was introduced in the early 1960s (yes, I've been battling my body since all the way back then ), sugar-sodas were out for me. Now, I do a Diet Coke several times a week, but that's it.

So far, so good. But the weekend looms...
So far, so good, indeed, Donna! I don't know how you can keep calories slow (low to me). I can do 871 before noon and that was your whole day!

I'm working on it. Two things I've come to realize over the past two weeks: 1) it takes a few off-track days in a row to truly get the average out-of-whack, and 2) once the average gets out-of-whack, it's a BEAR to get it back on track! Sheesh!

I'm really looking forward to your summary, Carolynn. I haven't seen that documentary (sounds interesting! I hope it's on Youtube...), but I've looked into the idea of setpoint before and it really does make sense to me.

Do take it easy, Libby. Don't want to get sick again. I'm so glad you're feeling better!

It's maddening, isn't it? Sometimes, the paranoid Epixi swears it's a conspiracy to keep selling diet plans, pills and procedures. I keep trying to convince her that couldn't possibly be true , but it sure does seem that way...

Here's to a good weekend, everyone!
