  • Congrats on your 26.5 lb. loss!! That is amazing!! Although I have to admit, some days I track my food and then there are others where I don't (no particular reason other than but feel free to send me a friend request if you like.
  • Avocado, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, tomatoes, watermelon (summer), nectarine (summer), plums (summer), peaches (summer), grapes, cherries (when in season and not $5.99 lb.). I'm not a big fan of melons (other than watermelon), apples, or oranges but will, occasionally, have a pear. As much as I…
  • For now, I'm trying to keep them under 100g. There have been days when I have gone over and days when I fell short of 100g but I'm trying to keep a healthy mindset and not fret about it to the point where I say, 'this isn't working' and I give up. My goal is to, eventually, get down to under 50g per day but I plan on doing…
  • I'm trying to get back on board after a way too long hiatus, myself. I'm 5'3" and my highest weight was 205 lbs. back in 2005. It was back then when I got inspired by my sister who, as a T2 diabetic, had lost 30 lbs. just by following her dietitians recommendations of 30g carbs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and 2…
  • I usually do everything individually but for things I make/eat quite often, I put them in my recipes so it's easier if/when I eat them again. For instance, this morning, I make myself a mozzarella cheese omelet using 3 eggs, 1 tblsp. 1/2 & 1/2, and 1 oz. of mozarella cheese. I then put that into my recipes so I don't have…
  • Adirondak White Chocolate sparking water, most of the time. If I don't have that, I drink plain ol' tap water.
  • Hey, if it's working for you, stick with it. If you should plateau again (and you probably will), you can cross that bridge when you come to it. I've been losing/gaining the same 1-3 lbs. for over a month now. It gets frustrating but I just keep pushing on. Eventually, the scale will start going down again and I'm in no…
  • I eat the Dannon Light & Fit Greek yogurts and count the carbs as listed on the label.
  • I usually weigh myself every morning but I don't let the number affect my mood for the day because I know how weight can fluctuate on a daily basis. Of course, it's always nice when you see it going down, though....... :wink:
  • Dole dark chocolate covered pineapple tidbits are 80 calories and oh so good!!
  • Where do I go to check my macros?
  • I try to stay around or under 60g "net" carbs and I'm losing weight.
  • I got 2 toaster ovens. One from each son because of lack of Anyway, the one my younger son bought me is also a convection oven so I'm having my older son bring his toaster oven back and get me an Instant Pot (hopefully)........ :).
  • 167.2 Christmas morning 12/25.......171.3 12/26........170.5 12/27, and this morning, 169.8. It's coming down slowly.
  • If I eat very low carb for a few days in a row, I notice my urine has a kind of peanut butter smell to Not sure if that would be considered "sweet" but it definitely doesn't smell like nail polish. I also get a metallic taste in my mouth if I'm very low carb for a few days.
  • I ate small piece of lasagna with my dinner but other than that, I wasn't too bad. The real problem didn't come along until they brought out the desserts. Cannoli cake and tiramisu....... :blush: . I got on the scale the next morning and I was up 4 lbs. I'm not too worried though. I know I didn't eat enough to actually…
  • My b/f got me a beautiful gold with diamond chips heart necklace, $100 gift card for Amazon, and White Diamonds perfume. From my younger son, I got a convection/toaster oven, along with a smart bracelet so I can track my steps, etc. Older son got me a toaster oven, also, but a smaller one. I'm going to have him bring that…
  • I count it when I do count water.
  • Yes, let MFP set the calories you would need to lose weight and then try to meet those calories on a daily basis. I started this in September, probably very close to your c/w, and have lost 16.2 lbs. so far. Of course, a lot of that was water weight in the beginning because I prefer to eat low carb but all you have to…
  • Flounder filet (2), broccoli, mashed cauliflower, and homemade tarter sauce with s/f relish an mayo.
  • Fried (in olive oil) thin sliced boneless pork chops dipped in egg and then a mixture of ground pork rinds, Parmesan cheese, garlic, and a dash of onion powder, broccoli, cauliflower with cheese, and Green Giant baby veggie medley in a light sauce.
  • The Chinese restaurant I order from advertises no MSG. Not sure how true it is but when I do order from them, I usually order vegetable egg foo young, no sauce or rice. To me, it's the Chinese version of an omelet with veggies.
  • Wow!! That looks delicious and a Happy Belated Birthday to you!!
  • It's an individual thing. If you like your carbs, Keto would probably not be sustainable.

  • Slow and steady wins the race.... ;)
  • I think it's great you two are doing this together as a team and a support system but, I also think you should plug your stats in on here as individuals so your wife, at least, can get the amount of calories she would need to eat per day to lose weight. You said your doctor approved 1400 calories a day for you, which is…
  • To friend somebody, you click on their pic on the left. Another box will appear where you click on there name again. Once there profile shows up, there is a button that says, "add friend", or something like that.
  • I don't weigh and other than the normal fluctuations on the scale, I've been losing.
  • To the OP, I had the same thing happen to me a couple of weeks ago when I bought a new scale. My new scale was reading 3 lbs. higher than my old scale. I didn't let it bother me though because I'm sure if I had my new scale when I first started, my starting weight would have been 3 lbs. higher, also so, technically, I lost…
