Weigh in number one

So. Saturday is my weigh in day. Which means I weighed in today.

I gained a pound and a half, which puts me at 211lbs.

yeah, I'm disappointed. But I'm not surprised, which is what makes it worse. I probably won't do much better next Saturday, considering I've been eating a lot of my comfort foods. Gravy fries and scones are very prevalent right now. I'm trying not to, but the hard part is actually stopping.

I'm bummed, but what can I do about it NOW other than just try harder tomorrow? Not much of anything. And I refuse to wallow.

My measurements are:
Hips: 51.5
Neck: 13
Thigh: 23
Calf: 16
Upper Arm: 11
Ribcage: 39.5
Bust: 45

Pretty much the same. But it seems I went down an inch in my waist? This doesn't seem right. I don't think I'm measuring properly.

I saw a recipe for sweet potato fries... squash fries.. that are supposed to be lower in calories... keep the comfort not the calories!!

Thanks for the nice comment. <3 And do you know where you saw the recipe? I LOVE LOVE LOVE sweet potato fries, but I haven't ever had them seasoned. I might go and pick up a bunch next time I go to market. <3

It was in one of the many books I've read... either the 100 calorie snacks... or an all vegetarian recipe book... I didn't see you commented back... I'll look through my notebooks to see which one it was.

most of the recipes that i saw for them were to set the oven to 350f and cook for 30 minutes.
