So, Darin, I gotta tell you what you made me do. I am very suggestible. For example, there was a thread about spotting here a couple of weeks ago, and then later that day after reading it, I start spotting for the first time in my life (sorry about TMI). Then like two days later someone mentions here that they think NK is making their skin break out and like the next day I get a huge horrible zit for the first time in ages. And then YOU mentioned that you are in between spatulas. And I chuckled and wondered what on earth you had done to your spatula. And then the next day (or so) I made myself a one minute muffin pancake and forgot to turn off the burner and ended up with this
lol

Say, use a cotton swab and dab straight organic ACV on the acne. It may burn a bit but it will nuke the problem in short order. ACV is a wonder cure for a whole lot of stuff.

And I lost a little bit more! I'm at 186.0. And still feeling good on my plan, though I am not eating a ton of calories. I'm feeling not SO concerned with the weight loss now, but almost more excited about just maintaining this woe. My blood sugar is completely perfect and I feel great and I feel like I'm taking good care of myself. This is all great for me because I lose so slowly that if I get too wrapped up in the losing (which I always have), it just leads to disappointment, frustration, and then back to carb hell. So, I am floating along happily.
Hooray!!!

Now she has strep which the doctor says we are getting as a secondary infection after this respiratory infection that mimics the flu but isn't influenza.

It looks like I am working again instead of getting a rest. Also my husband is snowed in at Kansas City and can't get home until Saturday.... Maybe.

Thank goodness I have an adult daughter at home to hold down the fort while we are both gone!
Wow! Strep can be some nasty business. Hope everyone gets well soon.

By the bye, while I am generally not in favor of being sick we have to be pragmatical with the contest and all. Any chance of chicken pox cropping up in the next two weeks???

Fortunately I don't have strep, just my kids and my friend. My husband actually had me get a strep test because he was afraid that untreated strep could lead to permenant heart damage. Silly man, he was probably just having nightmares of raising 5 children alone!

I really think I'm going to be okay in the contest. Yesterday, we had an update. I was second place for greatest percentage lost(not for the whole contest, but just this past 2 week period) but the person who beat me has just now started losing 8 weeks into the contest, so she had a water loss advantage.

My nemisis who is so close to goal didn't even make it into the top 5. I'm just going to focus on doing my very best and see if I can win by a large enough margin to not have to split the prize money.

My 16 year old just came in and told me that I don't have to take him to community college today because he was throwing up all night. Fun, fun, fun. I wonder if I should be mean and make him wake up again so he can clean the kitchen. That might be too mean, even for me.

No, I don't get Helen Hunt comments. I have to strike the arrogant pose for pictures, because it hides all of my neck and chin creases. The joys of getting old....

I had sour cream and pork rinds for lunch. I think that is the first time I've eaten sour cream with pork rinds. It was pretty good. I threw some cayenne and crushed red pepper into the sour cream. They were bbq rinds so I didn't want to jazz up the sour cream too much.

Hi, all. Just checking in with my eats. Another pathetic day appetite wise. I've decided not to track my macros or calories because I was getting way too neurotic with it, and I didn't like the way my head was working.. I know what I need to eat to get my fat up. A little tough without dairy, but I feel better since I haven't been including it in my diet. After 4 days, my waist seems noticeably smaller when I look in the mirror. Less bloat.

Anyway, here was today:

B: 4 hard boiled eggs sprinkled with Old Bay
D: 1/2 grass fed burger topped with sauteed mushrooms, onion, and bacon; side salad with tiny bit of apple, onion, rosemary spiced nuts, and balsamic vinaigrette

Water throughout the day...

Have been so sick to my stomach from stress :-( Protein shake sounded nauseating this morning. Got sick to my stomach again after eating half a burger.. meh. Hopefully I'll have a bit more of an appetite tomorrow.

Still not weighing myself, was getting neurotic with that too. There is absolutely no reason to step on the scale upwards of 10 times a day.

Oh I should also add:

The burger that I ate today and couldn't finish because I felt sick to my stomach.. I found out while I was eating it that it was locally sourced from a local farm called Hunter Cattle Company. I happen to drive by this farm every day on the way to school and for the past month every day all the cows and their calves are out in the pasture. I love them so much haha! The little calves running around just melt my little heart, I kind of have an attachment to them.. so I felt bad when I was eating the burger. LOL

I've got issues.

Shoot, sounds like the Nyquil is already starting to kick in.

I love catching up and seeing all the posts here. It makes me happy. I'm clueless how to put in smiley faces here, as I've tried and failed miserably. I may need a coach.....

Down exactly 2lbs this morning!! WOOT! WOOT!

Stats for the day:
Calories: 2574
Fats: 171.2
Carb: 34.2
Protein: 139.6

68/26/6

Breakfast: Coffee w/HnH, 2 eggs, 2 bacon
Lunch: Chicken (4oz), lettuce salad, 2 eggs, cheese, ranch
Dinner: Sirloin steak (7oz), sauteed onions/peppers, lettuce salad w/ranch
Snack: HWC w/walnuts

I'm still trying to figure out how to get my ratios correct. I feel really great, but I tend to get hungry in the evening. Like right now I feel very hungry. Just ate some whipped HWC w/some walnuts so hopefully that will satiate me REALLY soon. Seems weird to me that with that high of calories so far that I'm still hungry.

Next week I start back to Olympic lifting classes (along w/bf'g), so I'm sure I'll need to raise my cals even higher. Thought I'd try for 2000, but feeling hungry at the end of the day and going over on cals two days (2420 yesterday) in a row is telling me that I obviously need to raise them. THOUGHTS?

I'm so happy I found "this" place and that you're allowing me to be here. :-)
