Boy, did I luck out again, considering the candy, cookies and nuts (I did have some but I watched it but still it was a lot more "sweeties" that usual. Worse, I had a steroid injection AND I've been taking Lyrica. So, as you can imagine, I was afraid to hop on the scale. When I did, the magic number was 166.2. I'm holding steady. (At least my weight is steady even if I'm not). I'll treat this like a pregnancy scare and stay away from those carbs like you suggested, PIB. Susan.
