Wow Red, and we live just how many miles apart? Can you tell me what perfume I am wearing today? This is a test? What about yesterday? A hint, it was a different one?
Geez, now I am almost afraid to open an bottle of vinegar, don't want to make our Major Darin , although if he were in sick bay, we could push our homework aside and party down

Thanks, I don't have a Sprouts, wish I did...but got Whole Foods!

Congrats on the inches, that's what counts most IMHO!!

Correction to an earlier post...I typed HF for my last ten years, good grief, I was high protein, which I have learned was the reason for the stall, then bouncing after the lovely 50 birthday. Now, I am HF. Tried to edit and realized there must be a time limit on that!!

Thank you Red and Buffy for the kind words talking away from the edge of the cliff. You are right, if I change too much I won't know what's working. I am going to attempt to keep the carbs extra low, and not go over on the protein, and see what happens.
A little?
Amy, you are doing great looking at the big picture. My first major loss was nearly 50 lbs, way too fast; hit the stall wall for over a year. Moved up 10lbs during that time, then evened out, for five more years. Had two babies during this trial! I found LC and spent 10 years there, losing down to within sniffing my goal. Then just stalled again for 14 months. Then arrived here to lurk between sites and try to understand this all. Never would I imagine eating FAT, would lose weight. My mother taught me well, low to no fat...yuck. I had a great first week, then bounced around a couple weeks, my own fault for not tracking. Then the steriods, and I am drastically up 10 lbs in a week...eating this way, no cheats, but too low protein a few days. So I am choosing CALM. I weight once a week now, to break an addiction to the scalewatching. I feel lighter, maybe I am going down. Nearly threw in the towel and blamed this!! But listening to all the great advice, I too, will remain calm. But inside I am screaming!

Kerry, MCT is Medium Chain Triglycerides. Coconut oil is a MCT.
There is a lot of evidence that these oils are beneficial. Are you asking specifically about the MCT that links to Netrition on your post? It is made by NOW.

Oh, didn't see this post earlier. I'll bet it is good in bacon grease. The way I fix tilapia is this. For 1 filet, I meltb1 T of butter in a nonstick skillet, sprinkle te butter w paprika, salt and pepper, then lay filet in the butter over lowish to medium hast. Let brown nicely, and repeat seasonings on the top. Turn gently and brown the other side. When done, slide out of pan onto your plate and then scrape all the remaining butter and crispy bits onto your fish. My kids and I love it this way. Mr. Buffy does not like fish so he gets a different meat.

Steroids really mess with your weight, get well and then let's see how it goes, and yes, calm is good!

I've used MCT oil. One thing to know is that is is fairly notorious for causing gastric distress, especially at the beginning. One tablespoon in a smoothie is enough to cripple me for a whole day. However, I can eat coconut oil without any trouble. MCT oil is more expensive too. Unless you're epileptic and need to have super ketone levels in a major hurry, I don't recommend it over coconut oil.

On the other hand, it does make a lovely and shelf stable massage oil!

End delurk.

Its caught my appeal because I love frozen smoothies and that does not clump...
I was thinking of making my own bullet proof coffee with butter and mct oil for my first meal next week.

weigh-in 10042012

Weigh-in this morning ... 193.3!

Hooray! New low! Former low was 193.5 so only .2 difference but heh I'll take it especially after two bumps

Would have swooned and hit my head on the sink counter if I'd have gotten that other .4 to get to the 192s. So, for safety, 193.3 was a good reading and my body wasn't being contrary just looking out for my forehead.

Aside from that, Larry was right about the awful thought of being found dead naked.

Good morning PC

Hey, Braums has a very tasty LC ice cream. If I was out in that situation I'd certainly have a 2 scooper of that at Braums.

I wouldn't worry about the 2 pound bump. I just had almost that sort of bump over two days after my old low and I'm back down today.

I haven't tried the BPC yet so I'm interested in hearing how you like it Kerry. I'd have to make the CO version of it since I don't have any MCT oil.

Fat = 9 cals per gram.
Carb & Pro = 4 cals per gram.

((F grams * 9)/Total Cals)*100 = F%
((P grams * 4)/Total Cals)*100 = P%
((C grams * 4)/Total Cals)*100 = C%

((106*9)/1360)*100 = 70%
((81*4)/1360)*100 = 24%
((17*4)/1360)*100 = 5%

Which does not add up to 100% but that is due to rounding errors on the calorie counter or grams counter not the math for %s. Your grams total is 1346 calories. Don't worry about these sorts of tiny errors. At a really fine granularity it is very much guess work.

Hi Pat, first of all, quit delurking and stay in here where we can see you, we just don't know what kind of mischief you might be getting in to while out lurking around! Behave

Yes, the snack was included in my daily total. And, I do use sweetfreez but don't add it as it is 0-0-0. That snack was actually a dessert I had made. The nuts and butter were in the bottom of the bowl with some sweetener. Then I took the 2 oz of cc, the 2 T of sour cream, the heaping T of cocoa, added a t of vanilla and some sweetfrez and mixed it all up until it was thick and creamy, soften your CC first. Put it over the nut crust, then added a nice dollop of whipped cream. It is all added together in the tracking program I use, but when I add it to my meal/snack, it breaks it back down.

Gotta have my coffee, that is my first thought when I wake up, yayyy, I get to go have coffee!
