Family is my kryptonite

Well, suck. I all up and gave myself a great big pat on the back last week for my stellar dieting, and then disaster struck.

A family get-together.

This week, we had family in town one night, and then traveled to Houston for a big family weekend with the in-laws (shout-out to Oakley for his baptism this week from a proud Aunt and godmother). That is a total of FOUR out of seven days spent with people who aren't dieting -- and for anyone who has ever counted calories or something similar, you KNOW that spells F.A.I.L.

I did the best I could, but there were definitely cheat days. Nearly as many cheat days as good days. The good news however is that I STILL was able to maintain my new weight. The bad news, I am no closer to my goal.

On a happy note, I had a great time with my family. I also discovered and cooked some pretty amazing meals over the last two weeks that are going to be regulars around my house. A to-die for low-fat crustless quiche, baked pesto chicken, cauliflower "mashed potatoes" and no tortilla fajitas with black beans. Yum!

My family, my kryptonite. We are one good-looking bunch, no?

I have to give you props for not gaining. It is so hard to avoid food when the family gets together.

One good looking bunch indeed. And now I want to know more about tortilla-less fajitas. I love me some fajitas.

And whenever I'm at my mom's I cannot stop eating. Cannot. Just saying.
