I could quite happily binge on those cream cheese clouds though! They're dangerous!!
FYI... there is a low carb tortilla out there that you can stick in your purse on fajita night (if at restaurant)... just saying Load that baby up with guacamole (sp?) and salsa and meat. MmmM!

I'll send you a private message where you can get them as the rules on this board stipulate no posting links (that's what I've heard anyways).

Christina I am so sorry about your episode! You know I some times have something similar and so does my mon if I eat a bunch of fat at once. It's just an idea but I know that metabolizing fat diverts blood away to burn the fat so that may cause the irregular heartbeat and in turn the hard time breathing. I hope it gets better soon!!

Are you sure there isn't some kind of mistake? Are you eligible for some kind of disability due to illness? You own a hobby farm correct... so in a bit of a way you can be self sufficient. Do not panic. DH may just need to travel to other place to work afterall.

Sorry to butt in. This is only my opinion, and I've only been lurking but I think you need to hear this...

If You Qualify For Disability, Then Apply For It And Take It. It's not like someone else is going to be left out because you suffer. I know it feels like the right thing to do if you feel like you can manage without, but You need it now and there is no good reason why you shouldn't take advantage of the help that you qualify for, especially now. I'd call the local DHR first Thing Monday Morning and explain the situation and ask to apply for assistance ASAP.

I'm off my soapbox now. Breathe and relax, you'll get through this.

Yesterday I bought a pair of really cute pants from the thrift store for later since they looked small and are a size 16 which I fit into some now but not all the time. So tonight I go to try them on just to see and they fit like a glove!!!! They have no stretch at all so I was SO excited.

Tonight I went shopping and saw a pair of knee high boots that were SO cute but normally knee high boots wont fit or are too snug right below the knee so I decided to try them on and see. They were loose in the legs!!! I bought them and I am still wearing them now even though I'm in my sweat pants at the house LOL

Ah this feeling is great

Yay for clothes that fit!!! I loved putting my jeans on last week and not having a muffin top!

No loss again today. Not suprising seeing as the painkillers I'm taking have 388mg of sodium per tablet!! That's 2328mg per day! They also contain sorbitol and I'm not sure if that will have some effect as well.

Fingers crossed for water weight and a big whoosh when I stop taking them!!

Hi Ccake! Definately the sodium. Do not worry about this!! Keep at it and you'll see.

Goodbye to muffin top!

Woohoo Allie!!!!!!!
You will be wearin knee high boots soon

Ccake, that sodium will Defintely do it! No worries when I took progesterone for 3 days it made me retain water but I lost it within a day or two of stopping so it comes off very fast When it is due to a medication

Christina, have you considered something working from home just out of curiosity?

Well I am down .2 lbs as of my morning weigh in which is a great sign again. Crossing my fingers for a loss like yesterday but I suppose I can take a pound if need be LOL

My menu the last few days has been working really really well. Here it is:

4 tbsp HWC in coffee
2 servings of macadamia nuts
Hamburger with 2 slices of cheese 2 strips bacon two slices of tomato and some times a cup and a half unsalted green beans

Calories: 1,598
Fat: 157
Sodium: 304
Protein: 41
Net carbs: 6

I'm surprised lower calories like that work for me but I think it may be that what I am eating is so simple. Not sure lol
