Great number Kelly! I love seeing that number confirmation too! It's so cool to be able to measure and know exactly what's going on.

Sorry, I had an extremely busy weekend! My hubby's sister got married!

The cauliflower pizza crust was pretty good!
I made a hamburger, mushroom, cabbage stir fry that is delish too. This was taken from Low Carb Layla..she has a jalapeño popper recipe that is fantastic too!!
Very happy I didn't gain over the weekend from all the celebration going on! But I was really good...no bread, chips, or alcohol, and no wedding cake!

Thanks, Reddarin!

I just made another recipe ..a microwave cheesecake!! Yum!!! I don't care for cheesecake, but this is wonderful!!! The recipe calls for 2-4 T sweetener, I used 2T, as I am trying to cut back on sweeteners...it was perfect!!

I have no idea but you might look up the medicine on web md or similar site to see what organs it impacts. Kidneys and liver are big players for metabolism.

I had spam once and it was good Red, but i think i'll pass from trying it again based on your description of Jello. Not appealing.

Maybe i'll try some of my cat's soft wet food, he seems to enjoy it :P :P :P

Wow! Why are we cursed with reality TV?

Because of the dang writer's strike back in the late '80s. OMG! The creators of COPS shopped it around and Fox picked it up because it solved the problem of the writer's union strike by the nature of the show - no writers. It was also very appealing because of budget problems at the time and this forerunner to modern stupidity on TV was very cheap to film/produce.

Wow - made the meatballs from I Breathe I'm hungry for dinner - they were awesome! Definitely will be my goto meatball recipe from now on.

Well, it's 7pm and I'm at my calorie limit for the day. How do you all handle getting through the evening when you are at your calorie allowance?

Depends. If you really are hungry then eat something high fat and low/zero carb or fatty protein if you are not too high on protein for the day. If it is mild hunger that you can ignore then try to distract yourself so you forget about being hungry.

Even some old school tricks like munching on ice might work.

The thing is, you don't want to starve yourself and end up in a binge/cheat situation. I'll always choose high calories but on plan over the possibility of zapping myself by getting too hungry and cheating. Or at least that is my game plan at all times.

Following my little plan entails being ever vigilant to insurance eating - eating because you *think* you might get hungry later. So, step one is to ignore it unless I am certain it is the read deal. Or even going to bed early if I am hopeful of a friendly scale reading in the morning.

It'll move. Give it time. If that fails, physical violence can be very satisfying

My problem is I get snacky at night. DH requested the fried cheese sticks from "Your Lighter Side", so we had a little outing to whole foods for the Queso Fresco. They were really good, quick and simple! I'm going to try making some cheese chips tomorrow.

Counts for the day:

Calories: 1733

Fat: 143 (75%)
Protein: 98 (23%)
Carbs: 7

Myles - the steak looks GOOD

I haven't felt like eating much today. My 12 year old cat has been battling cancer for months, and I had to put her down after she took a turn for the worse. I'm glad her suffering is over but I'm bummed out and miss her kitty face.

I am so very sorry. I know that is never an easy decision to make. Remember all of the joyous memories and all the smiles she gave you! You will see her again one day...i BELIEVE that!

I'm so sorry Lisa. I can imagine what you're going through...I have two 12-year-old kitties that are my babies, and when their time comes I'll probably be a basket case.

After listening to Dr. Phinney's podcast with Jimmy Moore, I'm trying to up my protein to the levels he recommends (1.5 g protein/kg goal weight). I had been eating 57-65 g/day; I should be eating 90-95 g, and it's been a struggle the last few days. I've gotten so used to eating lower protein that I've kind of forgotten what to eat to get more protein in. :z I will say I was much more satisfied with my breakfast and kept going until 2 p.m. without needing to eat (and I got a walk in there, too, with plenty of energy).
