One step back

It’s Friday already? This was a challenging week for me and I gained back one pound. The only saving grace (aka, the thing keeping me from saying “screw it” and hitting the McDonald’s drive-thru) is the fact I can see where I went wrong and, in fact, anticipated not having a happy weight check.
