  • As far as I know, the vet did all the tests, also a T3 count and now already 3 bloodwork tests also to check his renal stats, as she explained that a thyroid problem might mask a renal one. I feel lucky that my tomcat is now in tiptop shape again just 7 weeks after his diagnosis. Next test is scheduled in 3 months. The…
  • I've had one 10 years ago and it took one year to recover. I had a lot of extremely painful PT and I regained full mobility after roughly one year - but then again, I was also 10 years younger. Now, I'm 16 months (it started with our first lockdown) in and it is slowly starting to thaw and the intense pains have subsided.…
  • Welcome @seltzer_lover and @alrosenfield7 ! :smile:
  • Yes, indeed this is exactly what I meant @MargaretYakoda. My cat went from hyper to hypo in a very short timespan due to overmedication and the effects on all aspects of his health were tremendous. I'm still in doubt as if the extra exercise when hyper could account for all the weightloss, of if there is some higher burn…
  • Strawberries and cherries, topped with homegrown raspberries and wineberries. I love summer fruit.
  • Tuesday hydration My workstation at home: always a glass of water with just a hint of pomegranate sugarfree syrup and loads of decaf during the morning. Just one real cup of coffee right after lunch.
  • @minstrelofsarcasm : I'd like to join the stepping group in August please. I have some charity walks coming up and there will be loads to report (I hope). Do I report Sunday to Saturday, or Monday to Sunday?
  • Monday lunch. The challenge started just after my European lunch :wink: hence a stockpic instead of the real thing. It is almost exact, if you swap the butter for a little bit of cherry jam to finish the last bread:
  • Impressive !! :astonished:
  • That is the most difficult exercise in weight loss I think. For me, it still goes down a little when at maintenance, and that seems to be the reason to eat more, which then goes out of control again. I hope you'll get that balance !

  • @rachelrjh and @sandielewis2001 : great progress and pics ! Wow !
  • Username: Antiopelle Weigh In Day: Monday PW (Previous Weight): 161.3 CW (Current Weight): 160.5 Finally, some weight is dropping! I had a crazy active week and it would have been strange not to drop some. We finally had some mild summer weather which allowed more outdoors activities. Alas, now we are facing rains again…
  • @minstrelofsarcasm : I hope that the MRI results will corroborate the neurologist's recommendation, fingers crossed !!
  • On ois, you open the app, click on More (the three dots) and then nutrition. You can choose between all your cals an net cals. I find it one of the best tools of this app !
  • * If I eat peanuts, I first eat the halves without the sprout, then the halves with sprouts, then the whole peanuts. * The best spaghetti sauce is molten butter with a large scoop of brown sugar. * French fries with sunny-side up eggs and use the yolk as dip * Instant mash, with fresh nutmeg and chives, topped with…
  • If even boiling pasta is too hot, you can replace it by taboule. Put one cup in a bowl, add a cup of boiling water and a tablespoon of olive oil or a small cube of butter. Cover and let it soak for 5 minutes and then fluff up with a fork. Top with veggies and protein as you like.
  • @PatriceFitnessPal : I've reached my maintenance point many times, and each time I shot up again like a toy springy thing. Now, I'm 5 pounds above maintenance, and here is my strategy to stay there this time as opposed to the previous times: * I have made the calculations of my BMR and TDEE and I have been following up…

  • Username: Antiopelle Weigh In Day: Monday PW (Previous Weight): 161.4 CW (Current Weight): 161.3 I'm still doing well with food, I just didn't move at all past week. We had torrential rains up until Friday, and on Thursday we were just relieved to live out of the flood zone that has ravaged our country. Friday I got my…
  • Do the cups weigh the same? One seems much bigger than the other :wink:
  • In Belgium we have a coverage of 18+: 82% one shot, 56% full. In Flanders where I live it is respectively 88% and 58%. I'm 51 and I'm only getting my second shot today. So yes, we are doing real good in terms of vaccination in general but it takes time. The issue is with the 18-35 group which has a rate of 68% one shot and…
  • Yesterday, I had a stark reminder of how lucky I am. I was complaining (just to myself in the security of my own little head) that it didn't stop raining and therefor I couldn't go biking, couldn't go diving, couldn't fire up the bbq - it's supposed to be summer, right? But then yesterday morning, torrential rains suddenly…
  • I have a coil (Mirena) and haven't had periods for 25 years. Now going into perimenopause, I start to have a very slight change. I have a gyn/ob check every year and she has always assured me that it was completely safe, and even a good starting point for the coming menopause.
  • I hear you @MsCzar , I'm like this myself. I'll keep chocolates in our cupboard and eat just a small one every night, but once I get out ... it's like I have someone else's brains, no rules apply anymore and the vacuum mode is on. One strategy that I apply is the no-carb rule. Now, I really do love my carbs and eat them…
  • How is it going? Did you get some extra sleep yet?
  • Username: Antiopelle Weigh In Day: Monday PW (Previous Weight): 162 CW (Current Weight): 161.4 I've done really well on the food side this past week, and I had tons of exercise: diving on Thursday, bike2work on Friday, diving on Saturday, and big clean-up and moving furniture yesterday to prepare for our new couch which…

  • @ninerbuff: I do applaud your commitment and your empathy, and I just wanted to give you a slightly different look on this: One of my longtime best friends is probably very similar to your client, and even for us who have know her for decades, there is a line about food that we do not cross. She knows very well that there…
  • Unfortunately, I can't help. I'm 51 but still no signs of the MP yet. And the month is going good. May I ask you why you would like less than 20% bodyfat? That seems so low.
