Congrats on the drop! You've convinced me - I'm going to go get some of the casein protein powder today. Have you tried any other flavours? The chocolate peanut butter sounds good, but they come in such huge tubs that I'm afraid of getting stuck with something I don't like. But I'm hoping that the protein powder will help - I've been waking up in the middle of the night and I think these might be just the thing to add before bed to bump up both protein and calories and help me sleep more soundly.

And sorry to hear about your rough night ... that sounds really scary and unsettling. At least you made the most out of it by meal planning though! Have a great Saturday.

Hey zgirl, I haven't tried any other flavors, but I meticulously read all the reviews and all of the ON get 5 stars!

I thought when I was finishing up my shake yesterday how good some peppermint extract would be in it.. chocolate coconut peppermint shake anyone? I must be PMSING because mint chocolate chip usually sounds gross to me.

I'm pretty sure I've never tried one and before recently I had no reason to want to, but I just read this post about whole little fish on Ned Kock's blog that makes me wish I could love them.
Hi Rubidoux! Haha noooo my sardines do not have heads... I don't think I could handle it if they did! I buy them lightly smoked and in olive oil, and usually mash them into salad with a hard boiled egg, sea salt, and other seasonings. It's great with sour cream on the side and I bet it would be really good with avocado too. Some people eat them with mustard.

And I do chew and eat with my eyes open... but if you really don't like fish maybe you should hold your nose, shut your eyes, and just throw them back like pills!

Wow I can see how that would be exhausting, but I'm sure you get so much satisfaction out of it too. Kids are so refreshing and full of life that you can't help but be re-energized when you spend time with them! Good luck dealing with the business end. Do you get a break on the weekends?

Thanks, Red. I'm already eating around 1800 a day, but I've been waking up in the middle of the night and I think it might be due to hunger. So I'm going to give Mizzcase's casein shakes a try, and see if that makes any difference!

Casein shakes are so good! I think I will abstain from them on the weekends though, since I am home with the sailor I'd like to share a few meals with him rather than just be stuffed and watch him eat every time.

No gym for me today. Did some hip abductor exercises the other day, and DOMS just kicked in. I am not exaggerating when I say today, I can't walk.

Am always surprised at how strong my legs are.. Started out doing inner and outer hip abductor exercises @ 130 pounds. My legs look like tree trunks compared to the upper half of my body. Heh.

That roast sounds tasty. Rest up this weekend! Is it a senior care center like the last job Becky?

Yup. It is a framework. Phinney said he thought that the next big innovation in health and weight maintenance would be physiologically targeted where they draw blood (or do a mouth swab I guess) and create a custom plan based on your hormones and whatnot.

FWIW, I figure I'll post my eats and macros from yesterday. Went from 130.6 yesterday morning to 128.6 this morning:

B (8A):coffee w/ 1T HWC, protein shake (1 scoop casein protein, 1 cup almond milk, 37g coconut oil, handful ice)
S (4P): 1 pickle (claussen dill, the BEST)
D (6P): Texas Roadhouse, casear side salad (no croutons), 10 oz med rare ribeye, side buttered broccoli--- I CLEARED MY PLATE. So good, so good.

1454 calories/111.4g fat/20.9g carbs (14.8 net)/92.5g protein
69%F/6%C/26%P

Little high on protein, but loved every minute of it.

I will add my own note to this: make sure your electrolytes are balanced; sodium, potassium etc. Just drinking plain water does not replace the electroytes lost through dehydration.







Hope this gives anxiety relief to some here who are beating themselves up over that .2 of a pound they gained this morning!
Dead on! Be patient, be consistent, don't change your diet every other day or week, drink water, drink water, and be careful to take supplements in the moderate range, start slow. I weigh once a week...if that. I do not let the scale have power over me. Thanks for your info! Great!

Hi Debby. I have been taking Adreset, at first I was taking four a day, then I moved that to two capsules, three times a day, now I am settled at three a day, morning, noon, evening. I concentrate on reducing inflammation at all times, which is no sugar for me. Fruits can also increase that, so one apple a day for my tummy, as it can really kill any reflux symptoms from too much fat at one meal, for me. I added the nightly supplement of Nature Made Sleep, and that seems to have turned the corner as well. I take 400mg magnesium right before bed. All have significantly reduced the cortisol levels since November.

Hi ct
HI Darin! They can do a swab test for me! I am often amused at the "blood type" diets. I think if they target in on personal hormones, or there lack of, and include the cortisol levels, do a marker test for inflammation, they may be on to the "millions in the bank."

Weigh-in Feb 16, 2013

Weigh-in this morning ... 202.8 so a little bump. Looking back on the last two weeks it looks like I need to shoot for 1800 to 1900 calories for my daily target.

Not sure why, I am trying to figure it out, but I have been very moopey yesterday and today. especially in the morning. I am trying IF, skipping breakfast. EAting lunch and dinner. But having CO and HWC at breakfast. Not sure if that has something to do with it or what. This is very unusual for me.
I am a bit discouraged about not losing any weight but not sure that is all of it. weight this am 161.5.
Any body else get down when they use intermittant fasting?

After that is when I noticed feeling very depressed.

While tinkering with my menu today, I went from fried cabbage to thinking, oh, I could boil the cabbage with the chicken bouillon eat the cabbage and drink the broth. That sounds good. Then I thought, what if I threw the shrimp in that I was considering for my main protein for the day??? Shrimp and cabbage 'soup' could that be good??? So I googled it and there is such a thing as shrimp and cabbage soup lol. Add a little garlic and red pepper flakes and boom there ya go.

Maybe you are fighting off an infection of some sort? That can tax the body and do weird things to mood.

Mmmmm, sounds good. Let us know how you like it. Might have to try that.

Last week I tasted a Mushroom swiss burger for the first time. (My Dh had one) I thought is was delicious so I am trying to put together a mushroom swiss burger casserole or something. Has anyone made something like that?
I am gonna try to come up with a recipe, unless someone has one?

Thanks for you answer. I guess I misunderstood you. I have low cortisol levels, you had high? oops... opposite.
I'm so happy for you, that you feel better.
I'm also on a very restricted diet. Seems I can't do apples, or maybe not on the days I do Quinoa.

I got to thinking today... some days, my protein is a bit on the high side because I've had eggs and I just hate to waste the whites... do companies sell just egg yolks in a carton? Like egg whites in a carton, but yolks? This would be amazing.

Hi Cheryl! I had a friend with in house child care, boy she had some stories, not about the kids, the parents! I have been "near exhaustion" at work the past few weeks. Have been dealing with governmental audits, and folks in our hair while we are trying to take care of patients. Geeze, I wish the government would save us a few trillion dollars and get out of health care! As Darin would say, "dismounting soapbox"!! I have missed you all too!
