Weight gain
I added 1lb today; I think the cheesecake mouse did me in;I had two servings, it tasted so good.

Since I started this challenge I have lost 4.5lbs in two weeks and this feels good.
I will continue the journey, I have to attend a wedding in June and I am so looking forward to purchase a new dress and look really good.

Do enjoy the weekend and keep the carbs low

Total carbs
Hi Folks
Thanks for the input, I think the total carbs will work for me and somewhere in between the net will sort itself out. In this way I will be on track,

Total carbs

Should I be counting total carbs or net carbs only. I think the total carbs may be just as important

Can anyone help in this areaSmile
