I like the Lemishine so far but I think I need to run a few more loads with it before I really see the difference. Hard water is common in my area so we have buildup inside the dishwasher. I noticed less buildup after using it but the dishes looked pretty much the same. I think after a few loads I'll see more change, but the BF and I don't use a lot of dishes so we only run the dishwasher every week or so.

Good morning all,

It may be too early to note any differences but the night I ate the whole serving of choc bark (so 4 tbsp of virgin coconut oil) I lost weight. Then I cut back on the bark and everything else really as I just wasn't hungry. I ate 1/2 serving of the choc bark 2 days in a row and I am now up 2 lbs. I'm not too uptight about it since it is my TOM but I usually only gain the day before and by the next few days...I am down a couple of lbs so I am curious if anyone else has noticed that they gained if they ate less and/or ate less than a full serving of bark? It's the easiest way to get that 4 tbsp of coc oil in so that's what I've been doing. I guess I just want to be vigilant and not gain any more wt while I'm trying to figure this all out. Any comments?

Hi ladies..

153 this morning..My brick wall..LOL.

This morning I put a badly neglected plastic glass in the dishwasher and one wash took all the film off..Maybe it will take several times, Jess to see a big difference and hard water is hard to work with.

Finished cleaning the parsonage..The floor looks great..The ladies couldn't believe the difference from Friday..

Now, I have to clean my house..LOLOLOL..

This is my favorite treat...Take a tall glass and put whipped cream in the bottom..I used the canned kind. Freeze it, then add diet root beer for a nice root beer float..

Carolyn: that sounds good, I will try that. Yum.
I'm a little confused. Aren't we supposed to be eating all 4 tbsps of coconut oil a day in some way? Or am I mixing up diet plans somehow? I'm new to the board so that is all possible. I understand the ratios but I thought the coconut oil was supposed to be part of your fats?

I love the whipped cream in the freezer trick. My BF got me one of those professional whippers for Christmas last year, the kind they use to put whipped cream on drinks at Starbucks. The can stuff is good but the fresh kind is extra tasty.

Dee: 4 tbsp is a lot of coconut oil, but it is healthy fat and there's no reason to not eat that much (or more) if you enjoy it and lose weight while eating it. I barely eat 1 tbsp a day, sometimes none at all. I'm not a big fan of coconut so I prefer butter when cooking. There's nothing wrong with eating that much, but the calories do add up fast with fats so you may want to keep an eye on your totals for the day if your weight loss slows.

Morning!
Love the diet root beer and cream, it is delish. I just pour diet root beer over ice, add some whipping cream out of the carton and drink.

My dishwasher is probably 14 years old and I must not have had near the build up you gals were fighting as I don't see that much difference but I know it has to be good to keep things good and clean. I will hold off on getting a new one as long as I can, we don't have that many dishes anymore either with just us 2 and dixie paper goods are great for lots of things, LOL.

I want new carpet too and need it badly but with 4 cats, no, I will hold off on that too. I am getting it cleaned on Thursday though, badly needed.

Been really busy in the office, changing over to using MS Office for things now that my old, old, old, old version of MS Works does not work on the new OS of Windows and I keep losing data. Very time consuming moving stuff over and learning new stuff at the same time. 2 steps forward, 1 1/2 steps back.

Dee, have you gotten the book yet on EFGT? I can't remember it saying you were supposed to have 4 T of coconut oil a day? It might, it has been a long time since I read it but that does add a lot of calories that you have to figure in somewhere. As others have said, ****** is great at helping you figure it all out.

Jess, on your diet of getting rid of wheat, do the sprouted breads fit in for you at all? Or do they still have the wheat in them? My DD asked me that the other night and I didn't know about breads like Ezekial, etc.

Hi ladies..

As our gals said, 4 Tbs. of coconut oil is still 400 calories. It is not a magic oil, but a healthy one to replace "bad" oils that people are cooking with, etc.. Coconut oil can be a good part to the 60 percent of your daily fat, of course. You don't have to take any coconut oil, of course, if you are getting your 60 percent in.

Buffy: Me, too on the carpet..Sometimes Alex has a hairball or throws up, so new carpet would freak me out..

Have a great day everyone..

Buffy: Ezekial does make a wheat free bread and a wrap, the package says that it is wheat free. Most of the other kinds of the Ezekial bread do contain wheat. I haven't tried any of it though. When I went wheat free I had to go cold turkey on anything that was in any way bread like. Bread has always been a weakness food for me, I can never eat too much. I don't mind the wheat free part of my diet, the benefits have been great. I simply do best with temptation by avoiding it completely.

Carolyn, I bought the powder and liquid Lemishine. The liquid is in the rinse aide. Are you putting some of the Lemishine in with your regular dish detergent or using it straight? I will say after using just the liquid I noticed a big difference but wondered how you were using the powder.

Thanks guys, I will just record the coconut oil and see what it does. I thought I read that on this forum...but I could very well have read it somewhere else. In any event, it seems to be helping my back pain <??> which is a great side effect right there since nothing else other than Tumeric has helped (I don't want to take prescription pills or go for cortisone shots). I sure hope that it is not just the placebo effect.
Buffy: yes, I have read the book. I better go back and re-read it. But I downloaded it to an e reader and I find it hard to find info in it quickly like a regular book. I'm only going to use the ereader for novels now not reference books.

Hi everyone..

Time for exercise, shopping, etc...

I was 153 this morning..my Iron Curtain..My body loves that number..I don't..

Dee: I am all for coconut oil..the research on Alzheimers and coconut oil is so interesting to me. My mom died from that disease..She wasn't overweight, but she loved bread and cookies..Not good..

Check in later...have a great day everyone.

Good Morning all,

Carolyn: Alzheimers is a brutal disease. I can't even imagine how painful that must've been. I hope coconut oil can help those suffering and prevent others from getting it. How wonderful that would be to have such a natural product be used for something so groundbreaking!!

I am down 4 lbs out of nowhere! After I climbed up a couple of lbs (was starting to suspect I needed to cut back on the coconut oil...) I dropped 4 lbs!!! I don't think I've ever done that overnight. Sure it could've been water retention but still I hung on to it for days and the most I've ever lost at once is 2.6 lbs. I was so flabbergasted...I got on the scale and doublechecked...(maybe the battery is going?? LOL). Had to share! Have a great day all!

Cindy: I think it is 3 Tbs. a day spaced out. But, I am not totally sure..But that is the general "recommendation" for lots of ills..

Dee: Wonderful.....sometimes water replaces the fat that has been burned and when the body figures out the fat "ain't coming back" it lets go of the water. That is what the Eades have said..

Mango margurita:

2 cups sugar free margarita mix without alcohol (I use On the Border or Baja Bobs) frozen in ice cube tray plus more to make it blendable.
1/2 cup Monin SF mango syrup, frozen in ice cube tray
1-2 T Grand Mariner (I use 2T)
1-2 T tequila (I use 2T)
Place frozen cubes and alcohol in a blender. Add enough liquid margarita mix to make it blendable. Pour in a salted glass. Thank God it is summer! The Grand Mariner and tequila are not LC but the rest is.

The above recipe won't cure anything but you won't care!

Well I just started Monday. I was curious to what was going on ( after promising myself not to look at the scale). Guess ya'll I lost 5 that is FIVE pounds! I know it is water weight but I rather lose water weight than gain it. Also, I feel good. But last night, whoa, i just wanted something to eat for the heck of it. I fought it though. I am on phase 1 SB.

Ever been to a gold and silver party, where they buy your "stuff"? I hadn't but a friend had one and I had some stuff I never wore and wanted to sell, so thought I would take it over, hoping to get a couple of hundred. Whoa, $736.00! I am happy, don't know what percentage they pay on what it is worth but easy, had a good time, good people, good food and stuff I didn't ever use or wear anyway.

Hi gals..

Welcome, The Belly..Congrats on your weight loss...That is super.

Buffy: I have sold gold at the jewelry store. But that is amazing...Gold is up there now but if you want to buy some jewelry it is a lot more expensive, too..Glad you made a killing....

Cindy: That sounds wonderful......and LC to boot..

Hair dye on the head this morning...Meeting in the a.m...Then we have a cookout at
a friend's house. They are hosting the potential new pastor and his family for the meal and the committee/Deacons and family gets to go, too..I get to make a salad..I'll make that lettuce/mandarin orange/green onion/toasted almond salad with SF poppy seed dressing..

I'm off to sit with my granddaughter this morning while her mom is out. She seems to be feeling worse by the day. I sure hope she can maintain until her surgery date.

On a positive note, I was down to 140.6 this a.m. A year ago today I was at 155!!! So I'm happy I got that sneaky weight back off finally and am maintaining it pretty well so far.

Morning!
Sandy, so sorry to hear about your granddaughter, know she will enjoy having you there with her. When is surgery? Congrats on your weight too, 15 lbs less in a year is quite a feat!

Carolyn, that salad sounds really really good. The hostess last night served one with strawberries and pecans in it, it was yummy.

Carpet cleaners coming between 12 and 3, think I have things ready for them. Will have them do my office last so I can work in here while they do the other rooms. New cleaning lady coming tomorrow, tried to do it on my own but just don't keep up as well as I should, so this is a blessing. She is one my dd used to have and my neighbor has had for 11 years, so I am hoping I will be happy with her. My last one started out great, then slacked off more and more and more. When I tried to talk to her about it, she argued and argued with me and tried to convince me that she was doing those things every time and staying the 5 hours like she was supposed to??? My neighbor saw her come and go if I wasn't here and it wasn't nearly 5 hours, then she went to complaining about things, so poof, she is gone. And, she wonders why she keeps losing houses?

Better get busy, have a great day everyone!
