hi-
sorry that happened Mary. I have 2 other theories-
1)You had a stomach bug. You didn't have an appetite for dinner (BTW a banana is plenty of carbs), then were sick. I was just in London and there is a nasty fast stomach bug going round there.
2)electrolyte imbalance. I have found that drinking some broth helps tremendously. When people first start LC they lose lots of water and electrolytes. Dr. Westman strongly urges people to drink 1-2 cups of broth a day when starting LC.

Hope you feel better!

We had house guests Thursday -Sunday,and I am exhausted. We got back from our trip Monday night, and I was still sick from my cold and had jet lag. Just when I was starting to feel better our friends came. They are old old friends- but she is very high maintenance. Would NOT leave me alone for a minute! When the guys wanted to do something alone, she wanted to "all be together". I just need a few days to take care of myself. Like yesterday they were about to go to the airport, and I was making lunch for me- tuna salad- and she asked "can you make me a sandwich for the plane?" - so I did. My DH said that I was "very good".

Made a crack slaw recipe last night- fantastic. Did one with Mexican seasoning and some shredded cheese- put in a casserole dish in the oven to melt it- and added some chopped green peppers. YUM. Had a green salad and bread for carb. DH also had some chocolate cake (that friends brought) for dessert. I just left the room and started laundry.

MaryH, that sounds horrible. I can see why you want to be sure, if it wasn't a stomach bug, that you can guard against this happening again.

Down 1.5 pounds for this past week, but that isn't good news. It doesn't matter what the stress was, had 2 rm yesterday, and a doughnut. I must learn a different coping skill. I should have had a more significant weight loss for this past week, and not seen the number I did this am.
Now I will work for maintaining over this next week, or a tiny loss. Doubt I can pull out another 1.5 lb. loss this week. At least it is 2 weeks of loss in a 3 week span, after a plateau, is nice to be able to say.

Still keeping it simple for breakfast and lunch, trying a variety of rm dishes to make up for eating out less, and to keep it from being boring.
Tonight is a tandoori spiced chicken with an appropriate amount of green lentils for carb.
Tomorrow is Cuban pot roast with an appropriate amount of potato dumplings as carb (is either 1 or 2 when I make as per package directions).
Wednesday rm is leftovers. Thursday is steak and a slice of apple pie (youngest bil is coming on Friday for lunch - but much later than I eat, and dh is fasting except for dinner that day, so pie is partially for bil to have for lunch, as this is the first time he's been to any home we've lived in, and well, my gram always made an apple pie for special occasions )

hi-
Pat, hope your visit went well. Your menu sounded great.

I tried posting here this am, but it never went through, so I'm reposting now.

Went to a party last night- they served cold poached salmon with snow peas and green beans and a lentil salad. Delish! We left before dessert. I felt fine about it. Decided not to have anything when we got home. DH had dessert.

Tonight's planned RM: salad, chicken sausage patties, eggplant, bread, water. Tomorrow I'm grilling chicken breasts, making zoodles and don't know what else.

later-
E

Thanks so much Eno for those theories.
It's a funny one alright. I did suspect perhaps the turkey rashers were a bit off,
i also suspect it could be hormonal. (I always blame that.).

Regardless, i'm not giving up.

Do you or Pat use a slow cooker? I've heard those are so convenient if you don't have time to prepare meals.

hi-
I have never had a slow cooker or a pressure cooker- very limited counter space. It would be great if you are working and want a meal when you get home.

I haven't been comfy with a pressure cooker, but the Instant Pot my husband bought me, is easier to understand and use, and I love it (you can saute in it, make yogurt, use it as a slow cooker, or use the pressure feature).

I also use a regular slow cooker, which I have recipes to use with it, that I love.

I have a sous vide set up as well

Had never even heard of a sous vide Pat,
just googled it there!
Looks like an interesting contraption.

You have an expertise in culinary skills by the sound of it!
