              My weight went up after my buffet day. Time to refocus my efforts. Since I started my low-carb and then paleo journey, I've lost around 20 lbs for about a year and a half. Slow and steady wins the race for me.

                          Resisted the urge to eat fried chicken. I peeled the skin off. It tasted like salt. Pizza cheese was good though. I'll be sure to eat before social events.

                              Pei Wei is not very paleo friendly. I'm sure the sauce had soy and HFCS. Oh well.
