Foils.
She takes the end of a comb and gets a very few hairs, paints them, then closes that foil, then goes to the next color. Each very few hairs have their own color.

I can see in a few years I'll be all one color. I'm not there yet....

Yes, I have seen foils on tv. Blonde hair looks great with different shades.

Avon sells a color fill for roots. It works pretty well in an emergency.

Going to make that four layer dessert for our small group tomorrow night. Two of the people are diabetics so they can eat something.

140.6 this a.m. !! Up a bit from the first but well within my window so I'm actually quite happy with that.

I used to get foiled but I'm so impatient. I hate sitting in that chair for so long. And I even went blond once. That started out as highlights but ended up blond. I should look for a picture and share. My hair is much lighter now than my young, natural color. I just keep slowly changing the color lighter and lighter b/c the really dark looks too harsh for me now.

Hi ladies

Sandy, the LC doctor said a window is the reality. I think she said the range would be a few
pounds either way. You are doing great. Too dark isn't
Good for us.

I did post that recipe somewhere in this thread. Let me find it cuz I need it too.

Recipe is on post 285, page 10. I don't know how to copy and paste on my phone.
It is a real winner with tons of variations. I do use Cool Whip. Forgive me, Dr. Atkins.

Well yay for the window, Sandy! You've "got" this!

Carolyn! I probably even copied that recipe but didn't print it. Here it is:
Low Carb Layered Dessert

Crust:

Preheat oven to 325..

Mix in a bowl:

1 1/4 cups of almond flour
one stick of butter, soft
3 Tbs. of Splenda

Cut the butter in until it is all incorporated..Then press the mixture in a Pammed 9 x 13
inch pan..Bake for about 15 minutes until done, then cool on a rack..

2nd layer:

1/2 of a 9 ounce container of Cool Whip
8 ounces of softened cream cheese
Splenda or other sweetener..Maybe 1/2 cup or less..

Mix this in a bowl until creamy..Then layer this on top of the cooled, cooked crust

3rd layer:

2 small boxes of SF instant pudding..(any flavor, except vanilla, I think)
2 1/2 cups of milk

Mix well in a bowl and layer on top of the white layer

4th layer:

Spread the rest of the Cool Whip on top..I like to put chopped nuts on top for "interest".

Cover and refrigerate several hours..

No idea how many calories, etc..LOL..If you want, you could certainly use whipped cream instead of the Cool Whip.

Anything with pudding = delish! That is one thing they absolutely nailed, SF FF pudding mix. I have even made it with almond milk, like it better with reg milk but I still like it.

My DIL foils my hair too and I also used to be a brunette. Then pepper and a little salt, then started getting it "what they used to call, frosted" where they pulled it through a cap, then lighter and lighter until I became blonde. That was too stark and too light so then the foiling came along, putting darker streaks in it. Sure wish we didn't have to do anything to our hair, just get a nice cut and go with it but my gray isn't a pretty gray and not only makes me look older, but oh my, it sure makes me feel older. Love a pretty silver, gray or white hair though.

Sandy, great weight! You gals are in a perfect window.

Have a couple of errands to run this afternoon, will see what new movies open this week.

Watched Bernie last night on TV, very funny.

Bernie - on my list (for when you all finally break me down and I get Netflix or Amazon Plus )!

I used to think my hair guy was pushing services - kept telling me I didn't want to be gray - it would make me look too old.

He's just right. I don't have a pretty gray and it ages me 20 years. I'm going to keep coloring. My MIL has the most beautiful white hair - it's gorgeous. Mine is not that.

Hi ladies

I'm glad you liked Bernie. Isn't it is amazing that it was a true story??

Dh offered to take me out to dinner/lunch. I'll take him up on one of those. Alex is having a good blood sugar day. Praying that this is the day he gets off the juice.

Great WSU game, huh????

What size pan did you use? My 10 makes 8 nice pieces. Last time I made it in a 9 inch cake pan. It was a good size for 2 with one piece each leftover.

I didn't make it in a 9x13 - I used a half sheet and it didn't cover the whole sheet. We like a thinner crust, but this was still puffy and we liked it. It was just giant - I think that sheet is bigger than a jelly roll pan - or at least the same size with higher sides.

Even though I pammed my hands, I ended up using a piece of plastic wrap to press out the dough - mine was too sticky.
Mine was too sticky because now I have to admit I used too much hot water even though the directions told me not to.

It was still awesome. I was also too chicken to use raw sausage. I bought brats, removed the casing, cooked it and slammed it in there!

Loved loved loved using the can of diced tomatoes for sauce - so good.
I think I have so many toppings on there with mushrooms and green pepper, one slice was plenty for us. We both loved it but with that fiber and all the great topping - it's filling!

Yes, that crust does puff up nicely..And we all have problems with it not sticking, but it manages to all work out nicely.

The raw sausage is great and greasy and flavorful..That is what they do in Chicago..LOL.
If you pack it down, it does cook nicely..

Alex had 14 hours on his shot of insulin..This is great news..I gave him a little one and who knows how long this will last.....

Gray does not hold onto color very well at all. My grays are the first to lose color but usually not in a week.

I used a root touch up kit for the first timer about a month ago. I read some reviews and left it on 30 min instead of 10 and was really surprised how ell it came out.

Sorry for the downer. You are all such a happy group. I love the new name Debby for the April thread.
We are a happy group but some of us are not EFGT so feel free to call this home but browse the other plans. Maybe this isn't the right plan for you.

I get foiled and every few months she drags darker streaks all the way to the end so I don't end up all one color.

It does take awhile. It is a 2 1/2 hour visit for me.

Carolyn, Alex sounds like he is doing great!!

So sad about KU. Our only hope is WSU tomorrow. Wouldn't that be amazing ??

My 4 layer chocolate dessert was a big hit. It is really good with butterscotch too.

Alex is doing really well. He has had long stretches without the juice and that means his pancreas is healing. Thank God.

What a view, Debby. Lots of the white stuff still there.

Since I had my whine the weight has started to come down some. I'm really watching the extra protein. So far I'm feeling better and not so depressed.

DOUB is just about over so I'll be making my pumpkin muffins soon. Your dessert, Carolyn, sounds like one my mother use to make with 2 flavors of pudding (vanilla/chocolate), cream cheese and whipping cream layered on a gram cracker crust. My brother would always request it. Memories...

Dh is starting breakfast boy am I ready for food. I got a neat little spiral slicer for zucchini noodles. Our garden always has a load of zucchini so now I'm ready. I have some Mascarpone so think I'll experiment with some zoodles and make some alfredo for tonight.

Hi ladies..

Enjoy your zoodles..they are good..My helpful hint with zoodles is to press the water out of them before you cook them..paper towels are great OR a salad spinner. That way, it won't water down your sauce..

Debby is way up there..Who lives the farthest south??? I think it might be Buffy..near Dallas ????

Oh Sharon I have one of those spiral slicers to make zoodles, also. I realize it's a one-hit wonder, but I have really used it and am glad I have it, since I'm not making pasta these days! Even jarred alfredo sauce is not very carby and sure is easy, if you'd rather. Now that you mention it, alfredo sauce isn't even very protein-y, so.... all-around good fit!

Perhaps you should whine a little more - seems to be working for you!
I'm glad - it's so frustrating to feel like you are doing everything right - and there's no evidence! Glad you are getting a little evidence.

There's been a small Easter tragedy at our house. Some of you may want to stop reading here.... my mother gave DH and me a couple of Lindt dark chocolate Easter bunnies and somehow... well, look below...

Oh Judy, so many chocolate bunnies suffer that same fate this time of year. SAVE THE BUNNIES I say!

I slowly got things ready for Ollie and his parents , they should arrive late tonight, will wait until he gets sleepy, then head here, that way he sleeps most to the way.

My goodness..Dr. Tiny Cat to the rescue..

The best chocolate I could find at Walgreen's was Dove..The Lindt ones look better..
A whole chocolate bunny has 1000+ calories. Think of the olden days when we would eat one and not blink an eye..

WSU playing tonight.
