I wanted to share this with someone.
I have a little watch that checks you heartrate and has a pedometer on it.
My pulse rate has always been 94, 95 or more when sitting.
Today and yesterday it has actually been in the 70s.
I know it is the LC woe. Isn't that something

That's interesting, wonder if it from lower blood pressure?

Hello to all. Still holding those prayers and hopeful thoughts for you all in the East, moving to MidWest.

Red, love your post about the Army, that is so good. Think I will take it to work tomorrow.

Buffy, I never thought to add the butter to stewed chicken, that is brilliant! Trying as soon as I get to the store.

Aetinger and HarmsWay, we all have those times, I wasn't perfect over my very long weekend, but it will all even out.

PC, important, you do what you feel is right, don't worry about folks being mad at you! Healthcare can be so rewarding, but it can suck the life out of us too.

Jilly, what good fortune. Maybe you have a tummy virus. ??

Clueless, I recommend having breakfast if you drink it or eat it. gets the metabolism going first thing. How much red wine? I find if I consume 4-5 oz (one glass) it doesn't seem to cause issues; but any more than that will bounce the scale. The others said it best, we are all different, and lose/gain differently. It takes a while for some of us to hit that magic place of "not being hungry or craving carbs"...took me a week or two. I may overeat protein, cheese, or nuts, but I do not have a desire for sweets, or anything that prior was a trigger for me. It's amazing. My heart rate increases after any coconut product consumption! Took a while to get used to.

Oceana (neat name), that picture and recipe sound wonderful, will be making this weekend. Did it get sticky? I love sticky, chewy!

Deb, "old timers"???? I swear I am 51! Lard is all we have ever used on cast iron. It's okay to eat too!

Welcome Linda! Glad you found us!

WTG Smoky!

Shelly, X-Files was the best! Bewitched too!

Someone asked about potassium, and I forgot to post yesterday.....bottom line, it really doesn't matter the type. Potassium is needed in significant quantities, it might just be best to use potassium gluconate. But,there is a reason that potassium tabs come in dosages no higher than 99mg. But if you know what you're doing and that your kidney's are healthy, supplementation at physiologically appropriate doses is not harmful. Add up what you are consuming, then supplement if needed. I would recommend consulting a MD if you are taking other medications. Other than that, it doesn't matter which form you use. With potassium, there is no reason to go pricey. I use gluconate. There are many forms of potassium supplements and dozens of brands. Either form (citrate or gluconate) is recommended and acceptable. You may wish to alternate between them.

And, lot of broth which I put into smaller containers in the freezer. The broth is soo good, I never like commercial ones as well. Lots of salt in it, so will be good for my leg cramps. Drinking a big mug right now that didn't fit in the containers
I've been making soup lately but I should just do this. Some broth sounds very yummy right now.

Today is Day 1. I will be coming here more often to stay on track again.
Welcome, Cathy! I have been there, too, a bunch of times. And I'm kinda new to HFLC, probably about three weeks. It's feeling great so far and I hope you experience the same.

L- 2 oz chicken, 2 tbl mayo, 1/2 avocado
D- stuffed jalapeno, small piece of ribeye
S- mixed nuts
Get back on track right away is such a valuable skill!

My pulse is always through the roof, too, like in the 90s, I believe. I normally try to not think about it. It's been that way since I was in my early 20s and normal weighted. I'm curious to see what will happen doing LC...

JillyBean, I hope you're feeling better!

So, today I found a miracle food! You all probably already know about it, but it's egg creams! I don't understand the magic, but it's awesome! Today I made one from:

-- 2/3 c coconut milk
-- 1/4 HWC
-- FIVE eggs
-- vanilla
-- ezSweets
-- dash of salt

I didn't figure out all the nutritional info, but it should have been in the neighborhood of 35 g protein and between 550 and 600 cals I think (I'm not counting calories, but it gives me some idea of something to think of them at times like this, iykwim). And I felt full all day. And did I mention it was super yummy???

Haha I have no idea what song that is?

I was named after that guy on Bewitched believe it or not.

I haven't met another Oceana yet, but I have heard there's others
My mother just came up with the name. Pronounced more like oshonna?

I LOVED Bewitched! I have met a couple Darins, but you're right they don't spell it correct.

Wow, everyone here is so nice. Thanks for all your ideas.

I love the name Oceana. Thanks for the pronunciation.

Buffy I don't know if it is my blood pressure of not. When I lost all that weight yrs ago my thyroid went wacky and I had thyroid storms. Since then my pulse has been way high. Even after I got it under control dieting would set it off sometimes. Of course the dieting was always low fat. Now with this high fat diet I seem to really be doing well. My goiter hasn't swolen and no heart palpatations. Just feeling really good and calm. The calmness is awesome.

rubidoux thanks for the egg creams recipe. Sounds good.

I loved bewitched too but I was an xfiles junky.

Wow I am excited about 2100 calories

You might see a bump on the scale for several days until your body knows that you are eating a little more on purpose. Don't worry too much about that.

On the other hand, you may see immediate results. I did when I bumped my cals up about 500 per day from 1500ish to 2000ish.

Weigh-in 10312012

Weigh-in this morning ... ... ... 192.1

A bump but I only slept about 4 hours last night. Woke up early and couldn't go back to sleep so I got up around 3am. If I'd have slept 8 hours I am sure I'd have seen another loss because yesterday was 190.9 and I know that 4 more hours of sleep would have gotten me that 1.3+ pounds.

Not sure how today will shake out for calories. I have that steak to cook up and I plan on eating most of it as breakfast/brunch. I'll probably save part of it for an early dinner. Gonna try to go higher on fat in the afternoon.

I woke up super early today as well, but haven't weighed yet. Keep thinking I might get sleepy and go back to bed for a while. Strange, the past 2 nights I slept like a log, went right to sleep and slept like 9 hours, last night, I had trouble getting to sleep and woke up after about 4 hours.

Probably you were worried about how my steaks were gonna cook up today since I am cooking them inside.

Worry not! Alton Brown did an episode on how to cook a steak using cast iron and the oven and it makes an awesomely good steak! And I salt my steaks to maximize tenderness.

Rest easy

Hey, I have used Alton Brown's method on cooking steak using the cast iron and it turned out very good. Just easier to have DH throw them on the grill though. Enjoy your steak today. As I was laying in bed, wide awake, I was thinking about what protein I was going to choose today , haven't had beef for a while, really been enjoying chicken and fish.

If you watch the ads, once in a rare while, Kroger will have Nolan Ryan beef on sale and when they do, I stock up on the rib eyes, they are really good. I seal them up using my seal a meal thingy and they stay really nice in the freezer.

Keep an eye on the Albertson's ads. Over the summer they had some pretty amazing prices on T-Bone and Ribeye choice steaks. Like $5.88/lb!!!

Albertson's do have some good prices, they are the farthest from me but on items, other than meat, I take their ad to Walmart and they match it. I haven't purchased meat at Albertson's, I usually go for the Angus at Tom Thumb or this Nolan Ryan. But, I do like choice, I won't buy select cuts, too tough. Sooo funny how short my grocery list is these days.

!!!

Google '163-how-to-turn-cheap-choice-steaks-into-gucci-prime-steaks' for a very interesting article by a lady named Jaden!

I had sworn off buying WM select meats because they were hardly edible. But after I read that process of salting for tenderizing I started buying them again. They still aren't as tender as choice cuts but they are very good when prepared this way.

I get a lot of joy out of buying the cheapy select at WM that has been marked down for quick sale.

I do the salt thing to every steak I get now regardless of the grade.

=)

Wow, at my old age, I had never heard about that method. I guess, growing up around farming, we had our own beef for years, and it was good beef, then learning to buy good choice steaks, when on sale, I didn't search out something like this. Sounds like a great method and she is quite funny! Thanks Red

Oh I only discovered it within the past year myself Buffy. But I ate a lot of very tender cheap steak over the summer months lol.

It does impart a distinct salt flavor I think but I use a lot of salt to tenderize with.

I saw a new low this morning, and, I got up extra early for me. 194.4!!! I am very excited, just when I was getting a little discouraged at how slow I was losing, this was a very nice boost.

Morning to All. Checking in between "stuff" this morning, the day looks busy!

Jayne, egg creams from my childhood! What a great reminder.

Hey Red, I was up at 3am too. wonder if it's the full moon? You will be back down soon, don't lose sight of the "light at the end of the tunnel". I love steaks in cast iron (seasoned in LARD!!)....it really seals in the juices! Faster than grilling too.

Buffy, you too up early? Congrats on the new low!!! OK, someone tell me, how do you post the smiley faces????

This came to me from a friend this morning, very good to "think on": Vitamin O

Vitamin O = Optimistic individuals have lower levels of inflammation and blood vessel dysfunction that lead to heart disease.
A healthy lifestyle is associated with longer telomeres as shown in a study of nearly 6,000 nurses. These five measures define a healthy lifestyle:

1.Not smoking
2.Maintaining a healthy body weight
3.Engaging regularly in moderate or vigorous activities
4.Drinking no more than moderate amounts of alcohol (less than 2 drinks daily)
5.Eating a healthy diet

Researchers studying individuals who have reached 100 years of age noted that they share common traits, such as being optimistic, easygoing, and open to laughter as well as conscientious and comfortable expressing emotions. All are typical of those who live to see the century mark.

Vitamin O (or optimism) plays an important role in aging. For some people, optimism seems to come naturally. These are the individuals who always see the glass as half full. At the other end of the spectrum, we have people who can find fault with just about anything. The optimist looks outside and sees a beautiful day, while the pessimist complains that the sunshine is too bright or the birds are chirping too loudly.

Not surprisingly, optimists and pessimists react very differently to health issues. Optimists tend to follow doctors' orders. They believe they can get better, and they are proactive in fixing things.

Pessimists, on the other hand, are more likely to give up. They feel doomed, so what's the point of taking medicine or doing what the doctor recommended? Pessimists tend to dwell on their failures and blame themselves when things go wrong, even if the situation was out of their hands.

Have a great day! SG

Some of them are the plain old emoticons like colon parentheses, colon oh, semi-colon parentheses, etc.

Others are keywords separated by colons like colonKeyWordcolon : hiya :

You can also click the icons shown in the list to the right of the new post box. At the bottom is 'more' which opens a window with all available emoticons. When you click them they are inserted where ever your cursor is located. But you can click several if you know what ones you want and then relocate them as you write your post with simple copy/paste type stuff.

Dropping off for a while so I can try to sort out these tummy troubles that are STILL continuing this morning. I'm now on Day 3 of rumble guts and unpleasant bathroom visits. I'm not eating any differently than I had been, my cold symptoms are pretty much gone, I'm still taking all my probiotics...not sure what this is all about. Imodium has not helped. I am doing just protein shakes and chicken broth today to see if that helps settle things at all, maybe sort of "reset" whatever's going on in there. My new insurance kicks in tomorrow (since I started my new job October 1), so at least I'll be able to seek treatment if need be. I'm sure I can somehow blame this on Sandy...

I hope you feel better very soon. I'm doing just the opposite; I'm dropping back in after being kind of quiet recently. Hi (again) everyone!

3 days is a problem. Make an appointment and head off the problem at the pass! Run by BestBuy on the way to the doc and pick up a laptop so you can keep up with us in all parts of the house

Toss those egg whites!

You know, I really love the yolk of an egg far more than the white. I fry my eggs, then eat off the white so I can savor that yolk. Well, got my eggs cheap so today I just tossed one of the egg whites, add the 2nd yolk to the first egg and fried that together. Much better. DH says I am spoiled? I say I am smart!! Many people say I am a smart A$$??? Who is right here and is it legal Red to toss egg whites?
