    Been baking all week. I'm hosting a women's gathering tomorrow. No idea how many people are showing up, so of course I go overboard, lol! Fruit sushi, vanilla cookies, meringues, mini blueberry scones, vegan chocolate cheezcake macadamia nut truffles, and smoosh fudge. (Along with bagels and pita, fruit and veggie platters, and some nibbles...)

    It all sounds good, but I think I need to know more about fruit sushi and "smoosh fudge"...! :)

    Haha me too!! Whats fruit sushi?? any pics??

    It's sushi using fresh fruit instead of fish/veggies, and the rice is a dense pudding. Here's a link again: https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/fresh-fruit-sushi/ Mine wasn't nearly this pretty, but it should give you an idea...

    Melt chocolate chips in a sauce pan. Stir in sweetened coconut, craisins, walnuts, and a couple of tablespoons brandy, rum, or cranberry juice. "Smoosh" into an 8x8 pan lined with waxed paper. Chill. Once it's cold, cut into 16 pieces. Easy-peasy!

    Kind of sounds like home made Cadbury fruit and nut bars. Yum!

    I've lost 70 lbs since the end of November 2017 eating nowhere near clean. I once had a McDondald's ten piece chicken nugget meal and large fries for supper 3 times a week for 2 months and still lost on average 1.5-2 lbs each week :D (not sure I recommend doing that but it was a Mcdonald's kind of month..or two)

    Did you eat anything else throughout the day or did you just exercise to burn the calories off? I'm not judging, just curious how I could get away with that. LOL

    Eh, it's 970 calories for a 10 piece nugget and large fries. If you skip breakfast and have a lightish lunch (or have light breakfast and light lunch), that's very doable, so long as you're not on the bare minimum of 1200 calories/day. I do that any time I know dinner is going to be a calorie bomb.

    Being short, and a sedentary job I am unfortunately at the 1200 calorie mark. I skip breakfast altogether most days to save calories for later. Then I work out to try to get some calories back, even then it's no where near a 2lb a week loss like it claims to be.

    Yeah, when you're smaller, sedentary and/or already at a lower weight, the losses just don't come as quickly and the calorie level isn't there to be able to indulge as much. I've read that a lot of people in that situation will bank their calories earned from exercise when they want to be able to indulge.

    Not to mention you run into that 1200 calorie 'floor' when choosing 2 pounds a week. 2 pounds a week might actually only allow you 950, but MFP (rightfully) won't give a person that as their target, so the user is left thinking they can eat 1200 and lose 2 pounds because that's what MFP said. I wish they'd add something along the lines of 'appropriate goal' suggestions and make that more clear in the setup.

    Yep, absolutely. I like the table that gets tossed around quite a bit:

    Pound per week goals for number of pounds until normal weight range is reached:
    75+ lbs set to lose 2 lbs
    Between 40-75 lbs set to lose 1.5 lbs
    Between 25-40 lbs set to lose 1 lbs
    Between 15-25 lbs set to lose .5-1 lbs
    Less than 15 lbs set to lose .5 lbs

    Yes, thanks for posting that! I see it here all the time, but not everyone makes it into the forums. Would be nice to see something similar in the guided setup.
