I hit that new low yesterday Judy, was rather surprised b/c I am not paying too much attention right now, just keeping carbs low. It bounced right back up 1 lb today, but I claim a low the second I see it

This is our third treadmill and I have not used one much yet, so I am not bragging yet. I am going to try though, my kids really are after me to do this and after what I just went through, I am a little more motivated to work on my health. Since losing weight has not reduced my need for BP meds, the only thing left is exercise. And, what is sad, I used to be so good at doing it, my 3 DD's all say that the reason they do it is that they grew up seeing me do it. When I passed the baton, I guess I decided I did not want it back

I started aerobic swimming because my mother was doing it. After I started eating this way, my back went out and I just quit going. My mother and I were just talking last night and SHE quit going too!
Now I know where I get my tendencies...

So - DH got 5 stitches in his finger, Copper has slow mornings but pretty good afternoons, my good friend is here from California and we've had lunch/dinner every day this week, . . . . and I'm tired!

Internet has been going in and out too - Comcast guy comes this afternoon. I'm ready for some normal days!

On the plus side I've lost another pound! Amazing what stress will do!

Hi gals..

Cindy..you know he has CRF and has had it for 3 years..He was slightly under the weather, and off his food a bit, but I gave him 1/4 of a Pepcid AC in a Pill Pocket and that seemed to help his eating...He was off his R/D Hill food from the vet....So, I ordered some Neo renal food from the net and he is enjoying that..I think I'm working in a nursing home..LOL.

Buffy...you will be in the 70's soon...Hallelujah!!!!!

Poor Copper...It must take a while for him to get up..Does he have a heated doggie bed???

Judy: I am making two hamburger buns for tonight from that magic flour..I need to read the thread more carefully, unless you have more hints..

Gosh, Cindy and Sandy are leaving for warmer temps in a few days....

Carolyn as kind as you have been to me I wish I could make them for you!

Here is how I made my hamburger buns the other night. By the way, I've been too lazy to make a big batch of the dry so I just did this twice:

Basic flour mixture (ouizoid)

2 Tbs Oatfiber
1 Tbs coconut flour
1 Tbs almond flour
1 Tbs protein powder
1 Tbs egg white powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder

Judy adds a little salt - this is a very neutral flavor and salt is nice here.
Ouizoid's original recipe was 2Tbsp. coconut flour and NO almond flour. I thought that was too dry.

Dribble in Hood CC or any other LC milk and if your calories can spare it, a little HWC until you have a mixture a little drier than muffin mix. You would not be able to pour it, you will be able to scoop it out.

That said, it is very forgiving so don't worry if you get it too "wet".

I microwave mine for 1 minute 30 seconds in a 4-1/2" personal casserole dish that is a perfect bun size. But it rises so high it's really nearly too much "bread" for 1 bun! For me, anyway. Microwave it until it's not wet anymore, but don't go too long or it will be too dry.

Dump it out of its cooking container immediately onto a paper towel to cool and let the steam escape.

I sprinkled some toasted sesame seeds on the bottom of my little casserole last time I made buns and it was delicious.

Let me know if I wasn't clear - that happens sometimes with me!

I think 1 and 1/2 recipes for 2 buns will be perfect.

I don't spray my bowl. I do need a knife around the edge to make it plop out.
Spraying couldn't hurt.

No....I was ironing....LOL.

They both came out great..I used 1 1/2 recipes for two Grab-it corningware bowls..
Perfect size..Nice texture. My sesame seeds went south on me, so I left them out.
Can you butter and toast the insides on a frying pan? They are very white..

They are indeed very white. <-- I said that in my best Barry White voice.

I have buttered and toasted in a toaster oven, but even then the color didn't change much, I don't think.

Coconut flour (you have 1-1/2 Tbsp. in there) will definitely get brown, almond flour....burns....

I don't know for sure!

Carolyn, yes, I did remember he has CRF. Do you do the fluid boluses? We did that for about 6 months with Rose.

I may do the dumplings this weekend. I have a turkey carcass in the freezer I need to utilize.

Hey, is Bob's Red Mill coconut flour the one that has the least coconut taste? I LOVE coconut but would prefer the most neutral tasting one.

OMG, DGS 13 was just admittd to the hospital, his Dr. tested his blood glucose at over 400 and thinks type I diabetes. I am just sick with worry. Family won't let me go tonight and hospital doesn't want everyone swarming in. I talked to him and my big boy sounded like my little guy again, he is scared. I will go tomorrow, his Mom will stay the night.

Carolyn for your new low!! You are doing so well!!


And now you have perfectly described my treadmill. It's so loud I have to have the TV up full volume WITH captions and even then I don't get the gist of the show. I bought some headphones that were supposed to wirelessly transmit the sound and they did not work.

Buffy I got the treadmill to erase all my excuses of weather here, too. It's always too hot or too cold. But that treadmill is not usually calling my name regardless. And I do think just a few minutes a day now and then would help my racing menopausal heart.



Oh Debby - T-Tap DVD is just below the Slow Burn DVD!






This is such great news! I am so glad you are feeling better.
I am disappointed you called yourself a drama queen - your condition was life-threatening and WILL take time to even out.

Laundry is a full-time job when you're straightening up guest rooms! You must feel better.

Is that a new low weight I see?
See!!!!! I agree with every single thing Judy said!!!! Same philosophy!!!! We must be sisters from another mother or father or somebody. Whatever that saying is.

Oh NO!!!! I'm so sorry to hear this and I can't even imagine how hard it is for you to stay away. Please try not to worry too much. He's in the best place he can be right now; they'll figure it out and he'll be fine. There might be some changes to his routine but I just know he'll be fine. And you'll have all this knowledge about eating right to share with him. You'll have just the right things to say to him to make him feel ok and make all his fear a thing of the past. I'll add him to my prayers.


Carolyn, is your local Mexican food place called Maria's? We ate at a Mexican place today in Atchison and their menu said they had a location in Independence so I thought that might be your Mexican restaurant that you talk about sometime. If so, the Pollo Asado is delicious!!!!

DH got another injection in his back today and is doing great! I think he'll be fine on vacation. Maybe not dancing on tables but able to walk the beach and around town. I'm so glad this new Dr is helping him so much.

Be careful not to let yourself get too upset.

My Dh is heading for Vancouver, BC tomorrow. Getting closer.

Oh Buffy - so sorry.
It is hard to stay away and I know you've had such a close relationship with this great kiddo. Tomorrow will be a better day. More info and less scary. Sandy's so right - you'll have all the right words and be able to help with the correct foods.

Sorry I forgot which of his parents is yours? His mom or dad? So frightening for the parent to contemplate. You've got to try to get some sleep tonight so you can have your time tomorrow at least a little clear-headed. We will ALL pray for him and for your whole family. Really.

Sandy dancing on tables is a great place to draw the line.
I've seen it many times on America's Funniest Videos.

This is DD#3's only child. He is the one who has aspergers so is smart as a tack so if any kid can figure this out, he will. Dr. reassured him a lot and they will keep him 2-3 more days to get him all set up before he gets home. Just still in shock over this.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers, you gals are my rock!

Hi ladies.

What a shock for your dgs, Buffy. However glad they caught it. He'll do fine with
Mema's help.

Cindy, I'll have to look that up. Thanks.

Yes we have a Maria's down here, too. Thanks for the tip. Glad your dh is doing great. I have a friend who goes for back injections and it makes a world of difference in her condition.

Chinese lunch with exercise friends. No rice. Luckily this place gives small portions.

Glad your dh is almost home, Debby.

Hi to Sharon, MK, and Judy. Catch you all later.

Is this Susie and her husband's place? We ate there about twice a week when we were there. The portions are just right and she is so funny.

DH was always trying to get them to add something (pineapple or something) and they did their best to accommodate.
DH is a little hard to please sometimes....

Debby! Another day of DH getting closer.

Carolyn we traveled back & forth to Independence (arrived Monday, departed Friday) for about 2 years, I think it was for work (oil & gas).

We rented a neat house after we stayed in a hotel for a LONG time.
After we got the house we were able to cook more. Eating out over a long period of time is hard to do. Eventually you are tired of everything! LOL
