Dustin,
It's the bomb...I grew up near Detroit and my favorite thing (even as a kid) was to get a "loose meat" sandwich at the coney island. Then smother it with chili and mustard on a steamed hotdog bun.....OK....now I'm drooling.... But seriously...hold the bun and chilli and it's legal!

Welcome to all the new folks... Great to have you all along for the ride...

Nermo, Sorry you're not feeling well... I'm having the opposite problem...uh...nuff said! I actually made a one-minute muffin (double the flax!) this morning and had it with my coffee. I didn't eat again until just now when I got home. My hubby thinks it is real funny, cause he can now say with conviction that I am full of #%&T.

I am still doing cardio and strength training 6 days week. I love it...never thought I would say that. :blush:

Sounds like everyone is doing great! Keep it up!

No patties.. I use the loose stuff from the butchers but I've also used the stuff you find in the "rolls". . just make sure it doesn't have maple syrup or such in it. .there are a lot of no-carb. . I've actually used the Kroger brand and it isn't bad.. I scramble fry my beef first. .put in strainer. .scramble fry the pork and strain and rinse and then combine them together..If you cook them together. .the pork tends to have more fat and I don't like it. . . and add my onion flakes or whatever.. You can also add green pepper just pick the peppers out before eating it and you'll have a no carb meal in no time. . It really is an nice treat!!!!

Hey! Don't beat yourself up...you may retain a little water, but you won't gain "real" weight from a bag of trail mix!

Hey IM,

Don't be hard.... I've done that for almost 4 weeks. I just went nuts... very emotional bad shape. Today is Day #2 that I'm am strictly on Stillman and I just realized that I am feeling a little more energy today.

I have been doing a lot of thinking over the weekend while I was preparing myself to get back on Stillman.... my B-day is April 16. Now you guys know the exact date.

I just decided that I will weigh myself on April 16. If my weight is 199.9 pounds or less, I will look into contact lenses for myself! If my weight is below 228, then I will get myself a nice new outfit! I wear bifocals, but I have heard good things about those bifocal contact lenses.

How's that? Some motivation to really change my look.... contact lenses instead of glasses.... boy, I am trying to imagine myself not wearing glasses.

Day #3 is coming soon!

Dustin

Thanks, Dustin and Kath! I don't feel quite so bad but I still realize that I have to get serious. . very serious! I'm running out of time to become my new Self! What great goals, Dustin. .Once you go to contacts, you'll never go back. I refuse to wear my glasses in public. IN fact, when I buy them, I pick out the cheapest pair they have. The receptionist is always trying to get me to buy better ones. .but I say. . What for? I only sleep in them. Literally. . I take my contacts out before bed and put my glasses on. I always fall asleep reading so I found it to be easier to just buy cheap ones! I think when I get to goal, I"m going to opt for lasik surgery. My only reservation is that if they can't correct my vision problems and I'll end up with glasses the rest of my life. My friend that had it done can no longer wear contacts! Errrrrrr. .

I seriously want new hair when (notice I said when) to goal. . If I can't grow it. .I'll buy it!!! I have 80's hair and really need an update but I just can't do the straight look yet!!!!!

You're right about suet lasting longer, but I've only tried muscle fat since our grass-fed beef supplier gives it to me for free. Pemmican made with it tastes ok, but be warned, it does leave a bit of a greasy film on the roof of your mouth that I personally don't like. It also takes a long time to render the fat over low heat before you can use it, so I just started using the extra virgin coconut oil instead. The mixture tastes particularly good while it's still warm - yum!

Dustin, just a quick note about the green tea. As the others have said, it would definitely make sense to work your way up to 5 or more cups per day over time. Adding too much too quickly while eating a low fat, high protein diet can affect some people adversely, as Lisa Renee discovered. Once you're drinking it regularly however, it definitely boosts the metabolism and mobilizes stored abdominal fat. Hope it works as well for you as it has for me!

Hey IM, that's good attitude to have! That was my plan... buy cheap glasses just to wear around the house and to bed.

Hey paleo, thanks for your advice of green tea. I just made my first cup and waiting for it to cool down and seep. I will definitely work my way up to 5 cups a day.

Today is day #3 and it's gonna be a BIG challenge.... the lady at HR and I walk past that area all the time.... she bought in a basket full of candy and one of the candies in there is those miniature PB eggs.... I can't even type it fully out! ACCCKKKK! I'm sitting here typing this message along with a cup of green tea, a small bowl of tuna with mustard and a 32 oz jug of water. I just need to stay calm and think how I will be feeling by April 16th!!!

not only does the pan get nasty, but make sure you throw the fat in the garbage! I have clogged many a drain if I forget to have running hot hot water going!!!

this sounds so good. is the sausage different than ground pork?

I got lazy yesterdy and boiled 24 chicken legs. (I was thinking it may make a good broth and I could peel off the chicken and get rid of all the fat) All the yucky marrow came out and ruined everything- I have to throw it all out. Meat has a funky taste....so mad, I am......Could you tell us again how you do the lemon/pepper- going to the store for more breasts..

Hey Dustin- Just get the lean ground beef. You'll find the 80/20 has a lot of fat. Or even get yourself some lean steaks- you can even throw a roast in the crockpot.

Yep. .the sausage has a little bit more zip. .Ground pork is boring.. .Most every butcher shop or meat market makes their own. . and like I said. .you can find it by the pork sausage in the grocery stores. . usually by the bacon and sausage patties and stuff. .

Lemon pepper. .I have actually used real lemon juice, diluted and some pepper. .(1 cup has about 8 carbs. . but how much really sticks to the chix?) I've also used the "spice" that is premixed and I've bought some marinade. . you can find some with little carbs. . Nice change. .i wouldn't do it every day..but it is wonderful on the grill with a big ole' juicy breast. . I like to buy a lot fresh chicken, divide into zip locs.. pour on different seasonings or marinade and freeze until I am ready to use. I usually take it out of the freezer the day before I am going to cook it and the thawing process seems to distribute the flavor more.. (or maybe its the freezing process. . not sure. .) but I've marinated meat in my refrigerator too but it always comes out better when I freeze it first. . ??? The teriyaki one it great too. . (soy sauce, ginger, garlic and artificial sweetner of some type. .)

Dustin-what a brilliant goal! You'll def get your contacts! You'll be way under 200 by then!
Im2, I could have written your post!!!! I never take off my contacts-literally when I brush my teeth before bed! My glasses are children's glasses-tiny little round kind of gold coloured ones-Had them since I was 17 or 18. (I have a really small face-I can wear chidren's hats!) I so want Laser too but the optician said I'd have to stop wearing the contacts for 3 months beforehand!!! I didn't know that about if it doesn't work out you can never wear contacts again!

Thanks for your advice! I will go to the store later this week. I was planning to go last night, but I have my carb withdrawal headaches so I just stayed home.

Hey GT, I also didn't know about not being able to wear contacts after having laser surgery. That is enough to make me think. I know several guys who had the surgery and they loved the results. But I only have one pair of eyes!
