Weight Loss After the Nest Is Empty

This week was our daughter's first week back at college. I lost 2 1/2 pounds! Do you want to know why? I ate like adults instead of teenagers. Honestly, I don't really like chicken nuggets and pizza and hamburgers and hot dogs. But, I spoiled my daughter that last couple of weeks of summer with all of her favorites. I gained 5 pounds!!

This week there were lots of MY favorites. We had roasted vegetables, grilled chicken, grilled steak and salads. I bought fresh peaches and tomatoes from the farmers market. Yummy.

Darling Daughter is home to work this weekend. I am going to let her have a favorite for dinner tonight. One meal won't hurt, but it will be back to eating like adults tomorrow!
