    @PatriceFitnessPal I hope Petey gets better soon! 💪

    @Pupowl love your puzzle pictures! ☺️
    How does Tinus like the panda scratch board?

    I am sorry to hear Petey is having issues. 12 is pretty old for a pup! It seems like you have tried lots of things to help him out already. Swimming seems like a great option. I had issues with Tinus limping in the past, though vets couldn't find anything. Since I started giving him Flexadin, I haven't seen it again. They have it for dogs and cats and it is for joint support and flexibility. Maybe something like that is also worth giving a try. I hope you can find a treatment that helps keep him comfortable and enjoying life.

    He doesn't! I haven't even seen him sitting on it. :smiley: I know that is the 'risk' of buying stuff for cats. They either love it or hate it and there doesn't seem to be much of an in between.

    Quick check in: had two very good workouts the last two days. My weight has been going up and down 2 lbs for the last few weeks, though I try to be very consistent with my calorie deficit and working out. No noticeable movement on the scale… but I try to be patient and believe that I‘m doing everything right, so the weight has to come off eventually.

    @Pupowl yes, that’s the risk... And most times an old cardboard box will be more attractive to them than the nicest stuff you buy them. At least the panda board looks cute 😅

    Hi all,Just got back from my morning Dance fit class.I tried out my new pink trainers,they were fine.@Pupowl your question about the beans made me laugh 😃 I didn't realise I had them that often lol.My eldest son is alot like you & doesn't like to cook.As he works from home 3 days a week & only has 15 mins break he makes beans on toast every day ! I put half the tin on 2 slices of bread.I like wholemeal bread.Also I like beans with hash browns so usually weight out about 120g or egg.Cheese on toast with beans on top is my fave though.Heinz beans are the best.
    @PatriceFitnessPal I do hope you can help Petey to be a bit more mobile.He sounds like such a good pal.

    I just recalled seeing it in your food diary before, so you seemed the right person to ask! :smiley: Half a tin for two slices sounds good. I don't have enough containers for the microwave, so I think I will go to the store today to grab an extra set. Thank you!

    Talking about beans, have any of you tried brownies made with beans? They are supposed to be good but I could be a total disaster.

    @PatriceFitnessPal -So sorry about Petey. If only they could talk….Hopefully he’ll bounce back. It’s amazing what they can do!

    Hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day! I had two days of traveling, eating out, wine, etc and it showed on the scale. Ughh- I’d been doing so well! I guess today is a new day! Hope everyone has a good one.

    @nancyinmo congratulations!!!
    @Nataliewr0403 I made black bean brownies once a few years back. Same thing, they were supposed to be delicious……nope! So nasty. It could have been the recipe, but I’ve never tried to make them again.

    @CasandraW thank you! If I am brave enough and because of its health benefits. I will try.
    Right now I am enjoying rolled oats with banana and peanut butter and dark chocolate chips. A treat to when I want something sweet

    I can see brownies would work with beans in them, depending on the beans of course. Chocolate is a pretty strong flavour so it could mask the beans. I have had bean icecream in a restaurant, that was very tasty.

    That's great! 50lbs is a huge loss, you should be proud.

    There’s a vegan café in my neighborhood that offers brownies made of beans. I’m not vegan but tried one of their bean brownies a while ago. Though I expected it to be a bit tasteless it was really good. The chocolate masked the beans well and the texture was really nice as well. Depends on the recipe, I guess.
