I've been sticking with the vegan choices and trying hard to stay low-calorie. The chip bag still calls me late at night, but I'm trying to resist.
Another thing I need to work on is the the pre-planning of meals. My standby meals include:
A bowl of cereal with Almond milk
A sandwich with hummus, vegan cheese, veggies and sprouted bread

Ron and I also went to Zen Austin- Japanese Fast Food. It's really yummy. I had the BYOB (Build Your Own Bowl) with tofu, greens, mushroom/veggie mix, noodles, and miso sauce.
Alyssa and I went to Subway and I had the Veggie sandwich.
Cydney and I went to the Ethiopian Restaurant near my house and they were having a Vegetarian Buffet! It was sooo delicious!
Cydney and I met Leena and Angela at the Steeping Room in the Domain. We all had the Buddha Bowl with various sauces. It's tofu, kale, lentils, brown rice and sweet potatoes.
I haven't lost any weight yet at all. So that's disappointing since I haven't cheated. And there's been plenty of meat around here!

My additional exercise is going to be Water Aerobics. Monday-Thursday, 24 Hour Fitness has a 6 p.m. class. I'm going to try to make it 3-4 days/week. And leaving the house while everyone eats dinner is a good plan.
So, that's where I am at Week One.
Thank you to everyone who sent recipes and cookbooks and encouragement - it helps a lot!
