still cookie-ing, but disappointing weigh in

Ahhh, I knew this day would come but I didn't think it would be day 8 of the cookie diet!  Yes, today, I weighed myself and I had a half-pound gain from yesterday.  I poured over my food diary from yesterday, and the only thing that I can think of is salt - last night I used too much salt accidentally when roasting cauliflower.  But I was in my calorie range according to myfitnesspal (did I mention I'm using that all the time now too?  I find it much easier to use than my prior food tracking web site and myfitnesspal has a free app!).  So... we will see what happens on the scale tomorrow.  I am not giving up hope on this, but I am definitely feeling a bit burnt out for sure.

Smartforlife (the cookie doc's company) says to call them for support - and I did call them today, and it wasn't very supportive. ;)  The guy just told me to drink more water and make sure to eat the cookies every two hours.  Oh, and I can snack on celery if I want.  Woo.  I am hungry almost all the damn time - including right now, when I just finished a cookie 10 minutes ago!  I am drinking a ton of water, and... yeah.  I am definitely not enjoying this, but I know it's going to suck for a couple of months at least ;)
