Food Journal: Karen

Thanks, Rae Ann, for your post! We certainly all struggle with things, as you mentioned, the cookies, etc. Especially problematic is the weekend away, where you feel really deprived if you can't eat with abandon!!

You had asked if we could publish our journals. I track my points online with e-tools, but I will try copying and pasting it here, so here goes . . .

This is a typical weekend day for me. Mind you, at my weight and height, I get 33 points (well, 32 points after this weigh-in):
