Decided to post my days calories/macros, etc. Was 7 PM and I had already had "dinner" and realized that I only had 800 calories, so I had some coconut milk (unsweetened) with a splash of HWC and 3/4 scoop of protein powder (I was only around 26 grams at that point).

So, ended with 1091 calories, 90.6 fat (77%), 46.3 protein (18%) and 13.6 total carbs (5%)

This is the lowest my calories have been...I was just not hungry today...guess my ketone reading might finally rise?? (no hunger) Didn't think I should end the day with 800 calories and 26 grams of protein (my minimum is 47) thus the shake.

Welcome solarpluvia....anyone else new I forgot to mention....apologies if so.

Buffy, your fatty meat sounds good to me!!!! :-) (especially the crisp parts)

Buffy, now I'm terribly confused. This seems like such a relaxed, fun group that I was ready to sign on the dotted line first thing this morning, BUT your admonition to BEHAVE has put me off a bit. If eating that scrumptious sounding snack constitutes behaving, then I'm still in.

We run a pretty tight ship around here and we actively discourage clowning around.

After I knew how much water I needed it was easy to eyeball measure it and get it right every time. One full bottle and then enough out of the second bottle to be right under some of the text on the bottle label.

I think I was just putting 8oz or 16oz in the log before. ****** doesn't show coffee as a zero item for some reason.

I've taken note of that Major Sir and as soon as I finish typing this, I shall take myself off to the naughty step with a package of butter.

Ahhhh, I can see that Pat is going to fit right in here, snug as a bug in a mug of coconut oil. How snug can you be in a mug you say? Ask Major Red, who obviously lives in a constant vat of CO the way he is losing weight.

And Jlo, we are going to grease you up as well so that you can't just be lurking and delurking and sneaking in and out of here. How are we going to keep you in line?

tsk tsk tsk

Speaking of butter! I went to make some fat bombs yesterday, a double batch which would be 2 sticks of butter and alas, all I had left was my high priced grass fed butter. That I keep kind of aside to eat a little at a time on things, not cook with. Wish I could afford to use it all the time but yikes! So, talked Mr. Buff y into running to Walmart and picking up butter. Told him to just get whatever was the cheapest, 5 lbs. He comes back with 5 solid 1 lb blocks of butter, wrapped in paper. I mean, come on!!! I will use it and it will be fine but it is kind of nice to at least have a box to store it in and have the quarters wrapped with the little marks where a T is measured. What was that, 2 cents more a lb! When I questioned him about it, of course, his answer was: "you said to get the cheapest one they had". And to top it off, he parked right behind MY car on MY side of the garage! Good thing he turned around and left right away.

Pat, holler if you run out of buttah over in your corner there, I will throw you a block of this!

My brisket was swimming in fat, I then chopped it, incorporating all the fat and the crispy parts. Wow, was it yummy. I know that it was more than 50% fat to meat, so I guess perfect for this WOE. Since it was beef, Mr. Buff ate it as well, he doesn't eat chicken or fish so most of the time, he or I fix him something different than what I am eating.

It had been a long time since I had seen it packaged that way too. I swear he does things like that so that I won't send him on these errands but he is wrong, I will continue to do so.

I must defend my fellow man.

You girls give us instructions. We follow them. To the letter or risk grave consequences for any creative interpretation of said instructions.

I will say, the instructions do have to be precise, and exact, and often accompanied with a picture, but, the fact that you will run such errands is priceless!!!

In his efforts to please the woman in his life, DH has a habit of doing this: If she asks for 2 bananas, then I will please her with 2 bunches of bananas, pre LC of course. If she wants 1 bag of something, then if I get her a dozen, then maybe I won't have to go back to store, but he fails to consider that things do expire. Are men complex? Are men stupid? I think men are just very very wiley, and think, if I just screw it up a little, then she will do this stupid errand herself next time.

I can see Mr. Buffy mulling it over in the store staring at the vast assortment of butter.

'Gah! Lookit all this butter! Lessee. This is a big block. That seems inconvenient to me. But. It *is* the cheapest.'

[Mental pre-calculations] Look around nonchalantly to see what women are buying. Wander over to milk area casually looking back at butter area for more nondescript spying.
[Mental satisfaction] Note other men in the area trying to decipher wifely instructions.
[Mental calculations] Review instructions: 'Just buy the cheapest'.
[Mental calculations] 'Can she really have wanted a big block?'
[Mental calculations] 'Review instructions: 'Cheapest'.
[Mental calculations] 'Well heck. Must go with cheapest or I'll get in trouble'.

heh

Shelley, be careful, be very careful when you walk a neighbor's dog. Just go to the Playground and read "The doorbell rang" thread. It's got over 60,000 views and is such a good read that it's guaranteed to keep you from doing anything but read it for the next few days.

Thanks for the welome.

LMBO! My husband says the same thing. More often than not he will call me from the grocery store, product in hand, to tell me what exactly he has chosen. He wants to ensure he has chosen an acceptable brand, in the amount needed, at a cost that is acceptable. I can't just say, "Honey, please pick up diet root beer", even though he has seen me drink it many many times. Nope, he always double checks.
