I LOVE IT!!!

I feel like we’ve grown so much in the last 18 months. We've both seen our share of ups and downs and with each other's support have come out the better for both.

So here's to the future Buddy Girl!

hmm....looks like a bednight snack is in order, missy!! keep those cals up!! and your protein...that's most important, that you get your minimum protein grams.

i'm not really figuring %'s anymore...just making sure to keep protein at my figured amount, calories at my figured amount (for goal weight) and keep (total) carbs at 50 g or less ... filling in the rest with fat.

That sounds like a good plan. I meant to ask you. Are you going to keep weighing daily or go to weekly? I'm thinking about semi-weekly. Friday for my official and Monday as a reality check. I'm not sure if I'm ready to give up daily this week or not since I'm just getting in line.

looks better.

so i had a bump up this morning. i'm hoping it's b/c i had saltier foods. darin says not to worry about salty, but this is the second time i have had saltier foods and the second time i have had a bump up. me thinks that the bod doesn't like salty. i have never had issues with leg cramps, so am not going to stress getting enough. in fact it seems i need to watch it. i may bring cals down just a tad today too.

hope your scale is kind.

Well I hate to be the Me Too girl, but me too. Today I'm grateful for the weight fluctuation section I'm just going with that.

I was thinking about what you said about salty foods. Is it possible just like good fat, bad fat, etc. there is good salt, bad salt?

It seems that if I add lots of salt to my food, i.e. salad dressed with lemon and "lots of" salt - no problem and even the Natural Choice Bacon doesn't cause a problem. But prepared or processed food that should be okay - not so much. Then again is it the salt or perhaps something else like nitrates for instance? Just a wild morning thought.

that really makes sense. the salt you are adding is pure salt...i would be willing to guess the salt in the processed summer sausage i ate...not so pure and probably added msg? possibly? do you use sea salt?

good thing, tho...even tho the scale showed a bump up, i do still 'feel' slim and my belt is almost back to the last hole. so...

I'm really going to try to take this "normal" weight fluctuation to heart and even if I weigh daily, only try to pay attention to the Official Friday weigh in. Focusing more on clothing not only makes more sense, it's really what counts.

Morning Buddy Girl,
That's the way to shake it off!

Well Mr. Fried Chicken showed up last night. I had two pieces skinned and actually allowed myself a chocolate chip cookie. 21 carbs in that puppy. So I had a bit too much whip to get my macros up.

2265 calories
185 fat 75%
104 protein 19%
30 carbs 6%

So I was pretty happy to be down .20 of the .70 bump from yesterday. I'll let you know today’s plan when I figure it out

Sounds interesting, I'm about ready to try something like that.

On the other thread I asked for your Mayo recipe. I know you like the same mayo as me and my first and last time I tried it was a disaster, never thickened. But I'd like to try again. I think it might have been because I used a hand mixer. I was advised not to use my blender because it would over heat. I don't have a stick blender but have a stick blender attachment for my mixer I might try. What do you use?

I saw your post on the other thread. I'm chasing you again So that answers my question. It stays on my Christmas list. Since I'll be getting a new one, anything special I should look for?

Very interesting recipe. Does it taste like ranch mayo? Do you dump everything in or dribble the oil in slowly?

heehee.... ahhhh!!! STALKER!!!

i could just never get the whole spice thing right with mayo which is is why i have never been happy with making it. so on a whim, i tried that. it's pretty good!

i just dumped it all in and whirled away!

as for a stick blender...there are only a couple name brands that make them. i have never tried them as the ones i use in my shop i LOVE and they don't make anymore. braun brand. but there are a couple brands at walmart that should be good. oster? and i can't think of the other brand.
