to Sharon. Now that I am 62, I find I don't lose the way I used to either. It is certainly a puzzle one has to put together!

I am still here, just had a spell where I didn't feel like posting. I am still working on my now well identified issues. I continue to choose calp as my default way of eating if I'm not engaging in eating behavior that simply harms me.

The recipes are really by default now, the new ones I choose, the favorites that I make again and again. I am not as good as I need to be when eating out, which is far, far rarer than it used to be. We eat at home the majority of the time now.

My latest find btw, is a smoked gouda and bacon cauliflower mash by my fav - you can search for the recipe on her website: ibreatheimhungry.com

This was company good, and will be a part of our regular cool weather rotation of recipes.

Oooo, the smoked gouda and bacon cauliflower sounds wonderful. I'll look it up.

I usually return to my favorite recipes too, but I keep running across and saving recipes that sound good to me, so last week I vowed to try at least one new one each week. If it's a winner, I keep it, but if not, it'll be deleted. It's really fun and tasty when I get a winner/keeper. And since I'm usually only cooking for me, leftovers end up in individual serving size containers in the freezer. It's fun to survey the freezer before weekly shopping and find that I'm already pretty well stocked with already-made meals.

hi-
Welcome,Sharon!
That sound fun.
I also try new recipes and the reaction that my DH has will make or break a recipe. The worst thing I ever tried, according to him, was soy grits. The best things- anything cauliflower, any kind of beef stew, and the crack slaw recipes with cabbage and meats.

Tonight we are having friends over for dessert and a glass of wine, so I am planning a CM dinner with my carbs saved for later. I am thinking baked chicken breasts with salad and asparagus.

later-

I think I would qualify as a recipe collector. When I got married, a gift from my mother, was a 3 ring binder (small) filled with family recipes and favorites that she collected from our family as well as the family I was marrying into.
Over the years, I expanded this to 3 huge binders, one with reward meal only recipes which included the family recipes, our favorites and as I call them "heritage" recipes. Another is filled with recipes I find to try. The third is filled with cm (craving reducing) recipes that are calp/cad compliant.

It is a lot of fun.

Just stopped in to say Hi and see how everyone was doing. I have stayed in Onederland for 13 days now. No bounce back up. I am as close to CALP as I will probably ever get, in that my only carbs are at dinner. At 72, losses are very slow I would like them to be faster, but a loss is a loss. I don't plan on seeing a gain ever again.

Celebrating great news- my DH is stable at his 5 year scan! So we're having 12 of our closest friends for dinner. Champagne!
