    Are you using phone or web?
    With web, right-click on the pic, and Copy Link Address (or similar-the wording varies based on the browser. Click the little page in the tool bar above where we tip this in and paste the link in the text box at the bottom. It should input it in the text.

    For phone:
    I'm not sure. Let me go find my phone and try it out and I'll BRB.
    ETA: So it's a PITA. Quote a post that has it in there, c&p the line including the "img" brackets (make sure copy the whole thing including the img tags on either side.) Then you can paste it wherever you want. I wish there were an easier way...

    Quiet here today - again. Searching web for fun vacations in Feb. I want warm! & cheap! doesn't seem to go together.

    Carbs/Proteins/Fats - OK
    Alcohol- None!
    Water - Good
    Cals too much

    I experimented making LCHF pumpkin treats last night. I called it crustless, sugarless, pumpkin muffin tin pies. - Rating: Epic Fail. I like playing in the kitchen.. Sometimes it works, sometimes NO.. Even my BF who eats EVERYTHING in sight, did not go back for any seconds. HAHA.

    1. Log everything accurately - CHECK
    2. Stay Hydrated - CHECK
    3. Reach protein macro (This is really hard for me) - YES YES!! W/O Protein drink even!
    4. Work on my fear of fat (Appropriate for this time of year) - Dinner was a chicken breast stuffed with cream cheese, spinach and bacon. I cooked the bacon first then fried the chicken breast IN the bacon fat with egg and crushed pork rinds as a breading. SO CHECK IT!!

    I drank the water!! Woo hoo!

    My carbs were less than 20!!
    I stayed away from peanuts and squash.

    I posted some before and current pics.... The change is pretty drastic.

    Got that whoosh on!!
    So.
    I drank my water!
    I exercised!
    My carbs were on point.
    And I didn't eat anything that might cause a catastrophe!!

    It was a good day, and the house is clean. I've lost inches, and I'm down a couple pounds. What a wonderful world.

    Woo hoo! Day Four!!!!

    Only keto foods in the face!!

    Another great day!!
