Hi, it is hard to think it is ok to eat this way. I did not loose today or gain. So I guess that is good. But my number for my sugar was terrific. 92 it is never that low. So was very happy with that. I really don't understand all of this. I am kinda slow. So I will follow the 80 fat 15 protein and 5 carbs and 2386 cal. Is that correct? Reddarin you are a nice person to learn all of that info for people like me. Thank you for your patientice.

It is fun to always see my BG numbers under 100 now. I am still on a lower dose of meds though, are you on any diabetes meds?

Hi Buffy, no meds. I have had diabetis for 15 years. My points used to run 3 to 4 hundred. I was not very smart. But the last 2years have worked by diet and exercise to keep the points down. Been doing really good. But not down in the 90's till today. So am pleased with this way of eating. But do hope to lose weight.

Hey all,

Just wanted to say I love reading this thread, so much info, and hilarious posts! I'm mostly a lurker, but wanted to say keeping up with you guys really keeps me on track and motivated!

Today I ditched an egg white and thought of Buffy.

I also quit smoking a few years ago. I found (find) it very challenging and wish red & harm the best. for keeping at it!

Huge to all the newcomers who found their way to us, please hang around, join in our discussions and add your knowledge as well. This is a great group, we have a lot of fun and WE ARE LOSERS!!! Proud of it!

Ok, who said I "only" lost 7 lbs last month, Buffy 's that person!!! I was THRILLED to lose 3.8 . But, I know each of us has different issues and some more or less to lose, some lose quicker and some slower, our goal here is to help each person stay on course and gain better health and if desired , leaner fitter bodies. We are doing a good job.

Red, glad to see you are back in the 80's and have done such a GREAT job in the non-smoking dept. It has been years, but when I quit, I was up to 2 packs a day as well, it was HARD, but so worth it.

Harms way, you can do it, you and Red both pointed out some of the trigger times when you reach for a cigarette, pay close attention. Mine was also when the phone rang, always lit up when I took a call. Now I feel so bad when my grown kids tell me how much they HATED the smell of our house, car, us, with 2 smoking parents. Yuck! You do not want to be that Yucky person! You want to smell like a pretty woman, and Red smell like a handsome man!
Yeah, I actually was only going to add a blurb about calories and ended up doing a pretty big overhaul of the entire intro. We've learned so much chatting the last 7 or 8 weeks that there was a lot I wanted to change for this month.

Lord my Dad used to kill us in the car with the windows rolled up while he smoked like a chimney. Had to keep the windows up for the AC ya see. He was about as hot natured as you've ever seen - even for a guy he was Super Hot Natured Man. Part of it was his growing up without being able to afford AC. Once he could afford it he never did without it lol.

Showering was a trigger for me so I quit doing that. I just use extra deodorant.

So I AM SICK. I've been fighting it for it seams like two weeks now. I just figured I had a tummy ache or wasn't eating the right foods (which is still possible) but yesterday I went out to eat with people from work, we went to a really nice place and I ordered the wedge salad, all it had on it was bacon, blue cheese, and roasted garlic ranch.
I instantly got sick and as of now I just want to curl up in a ball. My stomache feels rotten and just hurts. could I be missing something I should be consuming?? I also feel light headed and weak.
Please ANY advise is welcome!!!

I gave in yesterday and had a small amount of greek yogurt in a desperate attempt to feel better. It did work for about an hour but that's all.


We need to figure out some way to blame the future Mr. alizgurl. Has he been sick recently? Even a casual sneeze and we have our smoking gun.

Sounds like you need to go to ER clinic or the doc though Oceana. We can guilt trip the future Mr. Oceana after the doc figures out what is wrong and why it is his fault.

Yeah, that chicken fried/refried up in bacon grease is good eatin' alright!

I had chicken refried in a little refined CO with some hatch peppers (canned) then some cheese and sour cream mixed in when I plated it. So dang tasty!

I have to share what I cooked last night. I'd picked up some boneless pork country style ribs. I cut them into several hunks and browned them on all sides in bacon fat in my CI skillet. Then I stuck them in the oven for 15 minutes at 350*. I seasoned them with a no-salt steak seasoning and lightly salted them with sea salt when I took them out of the oven. They were delicious!!! And we sopped up all the drippings/grease with the meat as we ate it. And DH took a piece of my LC onion/rye bread to sop up the very last of the drippings. Very easy, very affordable and very tasty!

Yowsir! I just happen to have a package of those in the deep freeze. I'll have to thaw them out and do that to them!! Sounds really tasty!

Wow. I really ate a lot of calories today. But that number is actually right at the 35kCal/kg number for me. I would have been closer to the 30kCal/kg figure if not for those dang almonds. Half my carbs came from the almonds too.

Evening all. Hope everyone had a great day!

Welcome Misslatte.

Hi Seldom! I think I remember you asked about our favorite high fat foods! Wow....HWC ranks tops for me, as I love coffee. Butter on everything I can stick it on, melt it on, mix it in to! Butters from nuts, I make my own now...almond butter w/almond oil; mac nut butter w/mac nut oil; pecan butter, I am out of pecan oil, but use walnut oil until I get to the source for pecan oil! Bacon grease used to fry anything. Bacon at any time. Egg yolks. Sour cream, cream cheese. Coconut oil to cook, others love it straight or in fat bombs. Coconut butter/cream/milk...I mix coconut butter with any nut butters and thin it into scoopable texture with coconut cream.

Oceana, Buffy has a point, you need to see a doctor. UTIs left unchecked can be a problem. Is it just your tummy, abdominal area, urinary pain? If you can't get an appointment fast, those Doc Express are usually pretty efficient for routine issues.

Linda, congrats on lower numbers! Took me a while not to feel guilty eating this way, and I certainly didn't get the rations at first, but hang in and read a lot.

Hi TryAgain. I threw out TWO egg whites this morning without guilt. EB ones too! Yummy!

Red, I think it a miracle that most of us didn't die of "second hand smoke" after our parents! Mine certainly fogged the house and same with the car. Now, they paid for their habits, sad to say. Showering?? Love those Hatch peppers! Have you stuffed them yet?

Wow Sandy, that sounds so easy to fix the ribs. I will have to pick up some with my Buffy recommended on-sale at Kroger Nolan Ryan steaks! thanks for sharing.

Hi Sweets!

Hi Clueless....we share the same "real" name! And spell it right too! Mostly I go by CT!

Oceana, I sure hope you get to feeling better. Take care of yourself.

Thank you Southerngirl, if I keep reading what everybody is eating I might get it. I put on ****** what I ate today. It said I did the right numbers. But I am scared to death to weigh tomorrow. I cannot believe how full I am. Especially of fat. I will be measuring everyday with a tape measure to make sure I am not gaining inches. I have only done LC before not EFGT. But I feel I need the fat. I have been doing without fat for a very long time. But thanks for the input.

I know it may be hard to do, but don't weigh. Just keep eating on this WOE, until to find your "zone", and maybe weigh once a week. I understand the "fear" of fat....believe me, I was raised to fear it! But also remember, Courage is fear that has said its prayer!

Thanks southerngirl, I am going to remember that. I don't know about the weighing though. I have weighed every night and morning for 25yrs. My husband cannot believe I am on the computer so much. I can't stop reading all this stuff. Everybody is so helpful and encouraging.

I haven't read thru everything but thank you guys for the advice!
And Red, thanks for the good laugh I'm gonna agree that it's his fault, I did hear him sneeze a few days ago haha

So today was harsh and I live in a home FULL of cookies, cakes, chips, crackers.....pretty much EVERYTHING I stay away from! I was too sick to drive to the store and ate things I shouldn't have I'm usually smarter than this, Idk what got into me. I didn't eat massive amounts cause I don't feel good so I'm not too worried about gaining as I'll get back to induction level tomorrow. Just a lil disappointed I was so carefree and ate a brownie, yes a real brownie! Fail.
I'm blaming the flu shot at this point. I talked to quite a few people that said they got sick for well over two weeks after a flu shot. So I'll load up on vitamins and ride it out. Good thing it's almost the weekend

I hope you all have a wonderful night!!!!

WEll Congrats PC, I know that is a hard thing to do but you will feel better to get away from that stress. Seems alot of workplaces in our area have gone to treating employes bad.

My weight this am 161.5 again so happy it stayed the same.
2 people have noticed that I have lost weight so that is inspiring.

This is such a wonderful group.
