    I've tried: there is no way to be discrete, too many empty bread bits on your plate gives the game away! My advice: stand near a waste bin! :D

    Just back from the gym (only joined last week) instructor at my body pump class was impressed that apparently I am strong and not scared of lifting heavy and adding weight. I thought I was well mediocre as I am still working out the exercises and my form, so I am really happy with that comment

    Posts like this are why I'm unhappy they got rid of the Awesome button... Like just doesn't do it justice.

    @KnitOrMiss That’s actually a really good idea, thanks, I have a birthday party to go to in a couple of weeks and I already know it’s being catered buffet style so I was worrying about it. I can now see myself discreetly dismembering sandwiches!

    I don't worry too much about being discrete when I am dismembering sandwiches.

    Awesome, I now have a vision of pieces of bread being flung around the room!

    That is a huge plus, @cstehansen, since I remember you've stated that your partner eats junk vegetarian style. Perhaps they will come around to a healthier way of eating (even if Keto is not for them). <3

    You can do keto as a vegetarian, it's just harder, but I started that way and it does still work, very limiting and boring very quickly.

    Low carb vegetarian is pretty easy and has a lot of awesome options for food.

    In any case, my arms are half an inch bigger...totally feeling like she-hulk these days!!!

    "That Sugar Film" is truly something we should all watch. Highly recommended. Thanks for mentioning it!

    She isn't nearly as bad as before. Of course, she is much more carb heave as a vegetarian, but bread is no longer in the house except rare occasions and she only eats pasta 2-3 times a month instead of 5-6 times a week. Cereal is gone from the house as well. I would say I have her to about 60-70% primal vegetarian now. The fact that she will eat eggs, HWC and cheese helps. I am just glad that the number of packaged "foods" in our house continues to decline.

    That is a good film and there is a Netflix documentary called "The Magic Pill". They work with several kids in this one, that have ADD and epilepsy issues. The changes are amazing. There are older folks too but the kids part had me in tears.

    High five, @cstehansen! Less packaged food in the house is a huge win!

    This week I had to use our laptop and the desk was too busy to put it there so... I put it on my lap. We actually have a lap now! lol.

    No more balancing laptops or tablets or cats awkwardly on a huge belly. I don't know when this happened but I just noticed it this week. lol.

    That's a good one. LOL BTW, I love the hair!

    For me, being down three pants sizes is a big win. It took some time and hard work but is totally worth it. I got my husband on keto in October as he’s struggled with weight for years and has had a chronic fistula from cancer treatment for almost 8 years. He saw his specialist recently and was told the new way of eating is definitely working on healing his wound. Here’s to hoping our new lifestyle resolves this long term issue!

    Congrats to your hubby. And you!
