    I hear you on the smoothies @LisaW57 I would much rather eat my calories than drink them. Personally I think that it is better for the body to digest things that have been chewed and mixed with saliva : - P

    I thought so too, @dawnbgethealthy. Then I read this in Quench about the benefits of smoothies.

    "They not only amplify hydration through providing the water locked in plants, but according to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, president of the Nutritional Research Foundation, chewing food releases only about 35 percent of the nutritional materials in that food. And according to Fuhrman, blending our food makes those nutrients up to 90 percent bioavailable—meaning they are more easily absorbed."

    I imagine them not being filling is one of the reasons do many people add protein powders. I'm going to try adding oats today.

    If I wasn't doing keto, I'd be drinking green smoothies every day. I started drinking spirulina mixed with fruit and protein powder in 2002, then greens powder and fruit. By 2005, I was was doing blended fresh greens and fruit, switched to green juice for a while, then back to green smoothies.The only thing I ever added in to fresh greens smoothies was flax seed oil or coconut oil and ground flax seed. I never had the problem of not feeling full, but I really packed my blender with greens and just enough fruit to sweeten a little. I can drink a smoothie of all greens no problem. You are supposed to drink them close to room temperature, preferably not with a straw allowing time for saliva to mix with the liquid for the digestive process to kick in. I have planned to have a Keto green smoothie a couple of times this week. 😀

    Hello everyone.

    Thankyou @tiabirdie56 for starting up a new thread.
    I fell off the wagon a couple months ago and just kind of gave up with things being so hectic at home, then unfortunately a couple of weeks ago a close and dear family member passed away and I lost control of myself.
    I am going to finish this year with focusing on getting myself back into routine with healthy eating and calorie counting, and slowly start bringing exercises back into my daily routines, and I’ll get back to these monthly threads in the new year for anyone who would like to join me with them.

    I’m so sorry I let you all down the past couple months :’(

    But I have just read through ALOT of posts from this thread and you’ve all done amazing. Well done to you all and end this year with a bang :)

    Hope you all have a a merry Christmas and a happy new year :) xx

    Heaviest weight: 175.4 in early 2013.
    Original MFP starting weight (January 2018) - 168.2
    September 30 starting weight - 139.4 (ten-day rolling average weight 141.4)
    October (and November and December) goal - 143
    Ultimate goal - Range between 142 - 148

    I report scale weight and (ten day average weight).

    September 30 - 139.4 (10-day average 141.4)
    October 31 - 144.6 (10-day average 143.8)
    November 30 - 146.2 (10-day average 144.4)

    December 1: 146.0 (10-day average 144.6)
    December 8: 145.4 (10-day average 145.0)

    Total loss for October, November & December: No way around it; my mass is up even though my scale weight is down for the week. My ten-day average weight is up for the week, and BOTH are up since the end of September.

    But I can look back to a year ago, and I seem to have put on weight in October, November, and December. Guess what? Same thing in 2017. Back in fall/winter 2017 I was still trying to lose, so it was harder to deal with. Last year I was in maintenance, but had a fall bounce until January. This year that bounce is smaller, so I'll try to be ok with it and work on getting back to where I want to.
