WASHINGTON--First Lady Michelle Obama, Olympic gymnastic star Gabby Douglas guested Tuesday on NBC's "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno; Douglas admitted that after the competitions were over, she treated herself to a McDonald's

"You're setting me back, Gabby," Obama jokingly said to Douglas, who eats a high-protein diet while in training

"Sorry!" said Douglas, who earned two gold medals in the 2012 London Summer Games that ended Monday.

Leno asked Douglas what changed since she won the gold.

"I think it's very different, and when I mean 'different' it's in a better way," Douglas replied. "I mean, I never thought I would be doing the show with the first lady, or even you, Jay."

Leno started to reply, when Mrs. Obama ribbed him.

"Even you too, Jay!" she said.
