Good morning! Judy did you ever make the wine & cheese bread?

I've had a headache for two days now. I know it's sinus from all the oak dust. Ugh.

Well, MK, that's my own diagnosis, but that's what I feel like is causing it. When I go outside it seems that's all I smell? I'm probably crazy. But I am going to take something today to open up my head.

Yes, I made it and I agree with her - smells and tastes like yeasty bread.

I think you might be right about the oak dust/headaches.
We also have the smell of fires around us even though we live in town.
It's VERY dusty and dry here, and the trees are doing whatever fall stuff they do. My kids have as hard a time in the fall as they do in the spring.

Good morning,

Love to wake up to all the sparing banter going on in here. You all are such a sweet group of friends. I feel so welcome and at home here.

Sandy take care of your sinus'. Those headaches are not fun. I use to suffer from headaches but now I don't seem to get them. It's rare if I do. Do you supose eating a better choice of foods makes a difference in that?

Judy, what's happening with your eyes? Hope it's nothing serious.

Carolyn, I had Dh take out a turkey from the freezer to fix up. We'll be with family at there house this year so now's a great time to get ours cooked to snack on. Do you use a turkey bag? You get some nice good juices when you do it that way.

Another pound bit the dust this morning. That makes 3 pounds gone for good. I am so glad to finally see the scale going in the right direction.

MK, if your Dh is anything like mine, ear plugs works great to keep the complaining under control . Seriously hope he doesn't get too upset having to lay flat like that for 2 hours. I know I wouldn't like to be still in one position for 2 hours.

Debby, Enjoy your walks in the snow with your puppy. I love walking with our two fur kids.

Have a good one girls. Be good till I get back.

This is such a nice group, I agree.

Nothing wrong - I have glaucoma which is completely under control with drops. It was just a checkup. Thanks!

Morning!

Lots of fun chatting going on in here today, I LOVE it!!!!

Yes, we have to initiate Sharon and Debby too, hmmm, group or one at a time, which is the scariest????

Sharon, glad the scale is moving downward for you, isn't that awesome al the while you are eating great! That is what is amazing to me No Pain, and No Gain, in a totally good way!!!! No Pain, some Loss is better!

Judy, you have been a fun addition to our group, you little stalker you.

I am happy with my weight this week, of course if I saw some drops I would be happier but it has stayed in the 194-195 range all week, usually the bounce is a little more varied than that, so I guess what I am happy to say is that after seeing my new low of 194.2, I am never seeing a high of more than say 195.6 or so. Which leads me to think that I might be seeing 193 in the near future. Funny that I am satisfied to see such slow losses, I never would have been when I was younger but again, my biggest goal here is to see health benefits and a slow downward trend. I do wonder if I would keep it very simple, no messing around with the treats, the baking, trying this and that recipe, if the weight loss might be a little quicker? But, right now, I would rather do what I am doing and see it slower, make any sense at all? At this stage in my life, I am not into denying myself pleasure, and I have a lot of fun trying out all the recipes, etc. that I see on here. And, I have now spent that portion of our retirement money on stocking my pantry, I have to bake and make and experiment, right????

Last night for dinner, I made a type of OMM from the Basic Flour Mixture that is in the Recipe help and suggestion board, made mine like a cinnabon with cinnamon/swerve in the middle and on top and topped off with an icing made with butter, cream and powdered swerve. It was really good, a dry biscuit but loads of good flavor and nothing a little butter couldn't help out. And, it made a huge biscuit/muffin, could easily have made 2 out of it.

Still waiting for my yeast flakes and fiber powder to make the cheese bread.

Meeting 2 of our kids at the casino tonight to give them tickets to a concert and we will have dinner with them at the buffet, King Crab, here I come!!!

I am sure I would lose a little more if I'd quit baking. I'm positive. But I think for the rest of this month and the rest of December, I'm going to keep eating like a queen and not gain an ounce. If I lose, good for me.

And I think if I want to overeat, it will be protein. I'm just going to keep riding this feeling great, not hungry, not tempted feeling through these holidays. And I'm going to bake some things.

BUT BUFFY I THINK IT WOULD BE VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO POST THE LINK FOR THE BASIC FLOUR MIXTURE SO WE CAN ALL MAKE THAT OMM THAT EVIDENTLY TASTES LIKE A CINNAMON ROLL. THANKS. HOPE THAT WASN'T TOO FORCEFUL.

Just control. HOWEVER there is now an operation for which I'm not really a candidate - yet.

If you cannot control the eye pressure well with drops, the operation widens the pathway for the fluid to exit so the pressures stay down. If the pressure rises in the eye, it can, over time, cause damage to the optic nerve.

Dean McGee Eye Institute is kind of NASA in a way. I've had several pictures of my optic nerve and there is no change over several years - and they say no damage.

Buffy is this it? ouizoid's?

Basic flour mixture

2 Tbs Oatfiber
2 Tbs coconut flour (60)
1 Tbs vanilla protein powder (30)
1 Tbs eggwhite powder (22)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder
1 Tbs erythritol (optional)
spices (optional--but is great with pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon)

To this I add a mixture of davinci SF syrup and water or almond milk. My mixture is about 1/2 cup to start, but because of the coconut flour, more liquid may be necessary. Experiment with it.

The one I made for lunch had 2 TBS pumpkin added. The one this afternoon had 1/2 cup blueberries.

I made a topping from 2 TBS ff cream cheese mixed with a little vanilla davinci's

Let me know if you try this. I just loved the texture and how filling it is for so little in the way of calories.

Yes Judy, that's the one. I am going to try it today with almond flour, it was so dry that I thought it was maybe the coconut flour doing that.

Ok, just made it again, used almond flour, not much difference, still pretty dry but good, I like it. Frosted it with buttercream frosting made with swerve powdered, butter, cream, a little vanilla. A keeper for sure.

Oh, poured half of the mix in the bowl, sprinkled with swerve and cinnamond, poured about 2 teaspoons of melted butter over that, then topped with rest of mix, sprinkled the cinnamon swerve mix on again and nuked for 3 minutes, then frosted it.

WOW.
This way of eating is so restrictive. Not sure how I'll be able to keep slogging along.

I wish I had some oat fiber. I'd whip that baby right up! I just got through frying 3# of bacon. It was on sale this week so I stocked up. Majorly!

I got a call from my dad this a.m. and I had to run him to the Dr for an extra blood test they wanted to do. They think he may be anemic. If he is, I wonder why? He eats well and is very active and is really excellent health for 82 years old. He's had some health problems in the past but for the last year he's really been doing great! Still lives alone and takes care of himself. He just doesn't drive. I made him buy some spinach at the store today, lol. To build up his iron like Popeye!

I know, the suffering we are force to endure, like now, I finished off the cinnamon roll with 2 fat bombs, one chocolate, one PB. And, forcing myself to eat crab legs dipped in, weird looking yellow oily substance they try to pass off as butter, tonight for dinner. Then, when I get home, another fat bomb and a rootbeer float for my dessert. Oh my!!!

I know - I have all these odd ingredients. They all made sense at the time. Like Buffy, I won't be able to retire due to odd ingredients...

Sandy I'm having to have another blood test too because my iron tested low. And I was eating spinach nearly ever day. I wonder why? Does he feel all right? I feel fine.

Yes he feels fine. I've never been anemic in my life so I have no idea. He said he feels the same so we'll have to see how test comes back.

How neat for you to be able to give your dd a freshly-knitted cowl! I do think they are stylish and VERY useful. Love having my neck warm when it's cold out.

I thought about that Carolyn, but wouldn't that show up in his BMs? He said they're no different? I hope it's nothing but of course I'll be worried until we get the results.

Went to Outback tonight. Wedge salad (my fav), lobster and broccoli and lots of buttah!! And I still have my annoying headache. It's not a full fledged one yet and I sure hope it doesn't become one either.

Do you have a pic of the cowl? I'm sure she'll love it! Especially out there in the freezing cold weather.
