Its goin down,down,down. Slow but sure!! Do you eat cheese/dairy on your experiment or just stick with fattier cuts? just curious. don't know if it makes a difference.

THIS is the amount of weight I have lost so far - I can't believe that I could actually move with that extra weight. I am going to be GRAVITY DEFYING when I reach me goal!!

Anyone else up for the "dog food" test??? Go to the store and pick up a bag a dog food that closely approximates the amount of weight you have lost and try walking around with it - you may have a better appreciation for what you have accomplished
Cant take any credit for those commandments but I am happy to bring them to the surface. Shout out to princess daisy who recapped all those chapters and typed everything out! Shes the bomb! Perhaps one day she'll stop by for a visit. She was one cool chica!

the dog food test is awesome!!!! So I guess, for me, it would be like carrying my son and my daughter at the same time! I will have to test that but I dont think it'll be possible. Wow! Now i am proud of myself! I wish there was a pat myself on the back button!

Thanks Sharon!!

Aler-- Why don't you try Halibut. It doesnt smell that fishy to me and with spices, you can do a lot with it. It has a mild taste too (IMO)

Have a birthday dinner to attend so yikes, gotta be careful

I did eat cottage cheese with cinnamon and Splenda. Fattier cuts of meats and some 0 carb sausages/bratwurst were added as well.

Predator fish like shark and swordfish carry the highest risk of mercury poisoning - check out the website for "safe" fish. Whitefish, cod, tilapia are some of the "non-fishy" smelling choices. Or you can try the Gorton's fish. LOW carb/fat/calories....you can find them in the freezer section and coupons are available online

Tuna is a great "steaky" fish. MahiMahi is great. If you want to cook a mild fish inside - Orange Roughy is good and very little "fishy" smell.

For Salmon I try to always grill it outside - if I can't do that I have a great recipe for poached salmon (in the oven with water) and that does not seem to smell as bad.

Speaking of drunk GT, I was reading a website about Irish quotes, man, yall make fun of yourselves a lot. I'll give one quote I thought was funny (and clean). "My mothers menu consisted of two choices, take it or leave it". I'm curious, do you speak gaelic?

Wow! all these fish options! Thanks scooter and sharon! Ive never seen Halibut or Orange Roughy in the store but I may not have been looking to closely..... the fresh tuna does sound great and something I never think to buy! I'll try that first! Then Halibut!

Is salmon the only fatty fish?

I need to adopt that! My kids have me wrapped around their fingers! I often wonder why I ask them what they want. Oh I know why, if I surprise them with my own ideas they will starve themselves.

Is salmon the only fatty fish?
Fatty fish typically are cold-water fish. You have many good choices when it comes to fatty fish. The American Dietetic Association recommends:

* Salmon
* Tuna
* Trout
* Herring
* Sardines
* Mackerel

Here is a fish recipe that is good using just about any fish:

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups Chicken Stock (I look for chicken stock that has the LOWEST amount of sodium/carbs/calories)
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 fish steaks, 1-inch thick (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 tablespoon cornstarch (I use guar gum as it is MUCH lower in carbs)

Directions:

Stir the stock, mustard, lemon juice and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour 1 cup stock mixture into a shallow nonmetallic dish or gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Add the fish and turn to coat. Cover the dish or close the bag and refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove the fish from the marinade.

Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium. Grill the fish for 10 minutes or until it's cooked through, turning the fish over halfway through cooking and brushing often with the marinade. Discard the marinade.

Heat the cornstarch and remaining stock mixture in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Serve with the fish.
