Weekend update for me as well:

Friday recap, for lunch I had clam chowder in a sourdough bowl. The soup was low fat, but that's a lot of bread (but oh, so yummy). I had two small glasses of wine with dinner.

Saturday
B~mini bagel w/cranberry orange cream cheese
L~quesadilla & small fries, beer
D~homemade ham & bean soup (made a HUGE pot for lunches next week), three (oops) whiskey sours with sf sour mix

Sunday
B~egg white "mcmuffin"
L~salad of romaine with peppers, oranges and pork tenderloin with a vinaigrette based on olive oil and lime and orange juices with some dijon mustard
D~steak, broccoli, wild rice combo, 2 martinis

My weight did not fluctuate from Friday morning to Monday morning, so the alcohol prevented me from losing, but thankfully I didn't gain. Next weekend I'll be more mindful and will not succumb to the third cocktail and I'll attempt to keep it at one.

Forgot to add today's plan:
B~grapefruit
S~celery
L~bean soup (comes in at about 300 cals per serving), yogurt, pear
D~asparagus soup and chicken--this was REALLY REALLY good! PUree of asparagus soup (and I normally don't like asparagus all that much) with chicken breasts topped with a lemon dill sauce. No fat at all (except what was in the chicken). I think I'll post these recipes in the recipe thread.

Thanks Jessica, but I did have a very (VERY) small martini last night. I was fixing it when I realized I only had about 2 tablespoons of vodka! LOL

B~leftover noodles, perhaps 1/2 c
S~celery
L~ham & bean soup, apple, yogurt
D~chicken and leftover soup

So I wonder if I'm getting old.....Lately I've been trying more and more to get a full 7 to 8 hours of sleep and I've been successful at that. But I find that after a day of work (and my days are not that busy) I come home and once I sit down I feel the need to drift off to sleep (usually at a ridiculously early hour of 6 or 7 PM). And if I sit down to read at any time of the day I fall asleep.

Allison, maybe this is stating the obvious, but last week when you lost a whole lot, you didn't have any drinks M-Th. Maybe the reason you aren't losing now is that you were drinking this week?

Friday:
B - oatmeal, raisins, ls jam, skim milk
L - leftover rice, middle eastern chicken, braised chard
S - two clementines
D - leftover veg soup w/bread & parm, sweet potato w/butter and cinnamon sugar
E - UBWO

S - toast w/butter (I am eating too much toast lately)
D - DH cooked me a lovely one! - 3oz filet mignon, lentil soup, kale salad, roasted potatoes, 2 glasses red wine
