For a few weeks in September I decided to try the Simply Filling technique from Weight Watchers. I continued to track, because I'm a little OCD that way, and wasn't going over my DPT but every week I stepped on the scale and I gained weight.
At the end of September I headed to Wisconsin to surprise my dad who was being presented an award from an organization he's worked with for more than 30 years. I mention this because I considered the road trip a success in the eating realm. Normally I'd stock up on junk food at the gas stations when I'd stop but this time I went into the trip well prepared with a fully cooler of healthy options. I ate moderately well at the awards banquet and breakfast/lunch the following day but when I got on the scale it showed I'd gained weight, again.

Then Barbara made me climb even higher!

When I got home I was pleasantly surprised to find that I lost weight -- well, I lost what I gained before I went on the trip! At least it's progress.
How have you been? Have you learned any lessons or made any changes?
