I'm going to cheat and date this for yesterday, since I'm a day late.

I gained 1/4 pound this week (I know the problem and it's solvable.)

I did try a new "recipe" - a real no-brainer, but it fits the carb, calorie, and all the rest of my guidelines.

The battery in my pedometer went dead (I think I have a limited number of times I can put it through the washer) and I bought a new battery Wednesday.
