I drove to Washington, DC this week for the CHADD conference. I was there from Tuesday through Thursday. I must admit that while there I didn't count anything other than protein. I pretty much ate what I wanted but made sure to get my protein in each day. And, I am happy to say that I still managed to lose a pound this week! That is pretty good considering I go for weeks with no loss sometimes nowadays! Maybe it was all the walking we did on Capitol Hill on Weds and Thursday. We had appointments to see our state reps for the House and Senate and discuss some policy points that we want to see them support. It meant a lot of walking and some of it at a pretty brisk pace just to make appt times. I think I walked about 2 miles while on the hill each of the two days. Not a marathon by any means, but a good bit of exercise for a trip like this! This puts me at 215 pounds, down from 410!
