coolie (I know i'm spelling this wrong! ) stripes of mango and strawberry puree over it. It had a small scoop of ice-cream on the side and a single strawberry in a dab of cream.
Very fancy!

Do you still keep your blog?

I'm always getting co-incidences on here; its a bit extraordinary!

I am only rarely posting there, but will be cranking it back up. It is easy to make your own fruit (not sure what exactly is the difference between a compote and a coulis - suspect the coulis is simply concentrated liquid) compote. I have a couple I made up - one with strawberries and rhubarb, cinnamon, think some vanilla, NO sugar. Just a spoonful is a concentrated punch of flavor
I was so pleased my in-laws loved my citrus twist mini cheesecakes...love that I had the nutritional breakdown for them (as I mentioned fil is on low sodium, mil is diabetic so avoids a lot of sugar. I wish I could discuss diet with her for diabetic's but she is way NOT interested. sigh.)

hi-
have a meeting tonight with a speaker at 6pm, so I'm not sure if we are having anything to eat. My plan is to have a sparking water or club soda, and see if there is any CM food and go our for a quick bite after. I had a bigger than usual CM lunch to help me wait until after the meeting to eat. I had leftover steak and zucchini.

Tomorrow I'm going to be having my RM at lunch- a friend is having a bunch of us to lunch and I know it will be carb heavy. I'll just have my RM then, and have a CM dinner. DH understands.

later-

Finally, out of the 270s again. Now to see progress in the upcoming weeks.

Keep getting interesting and unexpected results from one site that I had test my dna, they also do health testing. Newest - I have 1 variant for developing Celiac disease. I have so far, been told 4 results that I would never have expected. I suspect that routine dna testing at birth will become common before I leave this world

hi-
so the plan went as follows. For RM lunch I had salad, zucchini, a slice of bread, eggplant parm, 2 lemon cookies, water. I skipped the pasta.

CM dinner was grilled chicken, roasted veggies, salad and water. DH added on hummus, crackers, and ice cream.

I really prefer having my RM for dinner, but once or twice a year (LOL) I can switch.

Lowest single day weight this morning since 9/01. I am glad I haven't given up. I have NO doubt I'd be in the 280s or higher by now if I had.

hi-
after having restaurant meals the last 3 nights, I'm ready to eat home!
Tonight's planned RM: salad, grilled T-bone steak, pasta (for DH) and veggies (probably spinach ). I don't have a plan for my carb.

Had a great breakfast- got some wild caught salmon dip at Costco and put a dollop in my eggs this am. Really good.

Having a salad with leftover grilled chicken for CM lunch. DH will make his chicken into a sandwich.

Not where I wanted to be this am, but at least I can say 5 days in a row in the 260s, and that, does feel good.

Had breakfast casserole for am meal, homemade chicken stew using homemade turkey and chicken broth, celery and cauliflower, chicken thighs, a leftover portion, for lunch. Not sure but dinner will probably be a salad, baked chicken breast, green beans, single serve oatmeal with raw almonds, half and half with my coffee and oatmeal.

Had my labs done yesterday, I continue with the kind of total cholesterol that makes them scream, and a high ldl, and a fantastic hdl, low trigs and cardiac risk ratios that are "ideal". At least I now know I have a genetic component which explains the stubborn total cholesterol and ldl. Still need to deal with a high ldl-p, will discuss that with new cardiologist soon.

So...had to be fasting - not a problem, was done by 4:30 on Monday, and didn't eat until after 8 am blood draw. The lifeless looking egg/cheese omelets in the hospital eatery I went to (a coffee place with breakfast/lunch bar) weren't appealing, but I found mozzarella snack sticks were available, and had a double espresso with half and half added, two cheese sticks.

DH took me out to Panera's for lunch - made that my rm - had their steak and arugula sandwich and a very small apple, a latte.

Dinner cm was home cured cm ham and Brussel sprouts.
Later in eve as the ungiven out mini candy bars called, I had a snack of Brussel sprouts and a snack round of cheese.

Up 1.6 pounds this morning. My body isn't fooling around anymore. It is toe the line or go back up over 300, I am convinced.
I feel good though re *what* I ate yesterday, and consider not giving in to the nasty voice that said "you won't have blood work for a year, won't see this doctor for six months, go ahead have..and it's a long list.".
I won.
The weight will be lower again tomorrow morning.

Patricia, i heard recently that cheese does not cause cholesterol issues like they once previously feared.
I suppose information is changing on a daily basis though so one can ever be too certain.

I heard Omega 3's, eggplant soaked in water and to then drink the water,
and sunflower seeds and oats are reported to improve cholesterol levels.
Like you said though; very often hereditary plays a big part too.

Overdone the candy and caffeine here. The usual problems with me.
Trying to be patient with myself today though.
The only way is up from here.

I intend to have a good discussion with my cardiologist in a few weeks re what I found out via dna test, and my cholesterol levels.
Tell you what...was really struggling today, and suddenly had a visual disturbance (eyes crossed) and then a gnarly headache. Reminded me that I don't want to waste time with getting healthy some other day. We don't know how much time we have, I want to do my best, now, today, this moment.
Not tomorrow.

It's All Souls Day - many to remember.

hi-

Hope you both have great days, Mary and Pat.

I am doing lots of house things today, so staying home and getting (hopefully) a lot done.

I'm still not interested in eggs for breakfast, so today had 1/2 of a quarter pound grass fed burger. I had it with some sautéed onions and peppers and coffee to drink. I'll probably have the other half with a salad for lunch.

later-

Thanks Eno
Love the idea of that burger meal. Sounds very easy and quick to make.

That's so true Patricia; it really puts things in perspective when you realise
we all only have a finite amount of time to try to make the best out of life.
Hope everything's OK with the migraine.
Sounds like your really looking after your health anyway; especially with that extensive health evaluation.

I don't want to waste any more days feeling awful either and ruining my own health. Its just not worth the trade-off.
Still i never seem to remember the sensible thing to do when i choose to sabotage myself. It makes no sense to me at all.
Think its the nature of the beast... It sometimes just seems out of my control.

Starting off with some IF again, then hopefully staying CAD will be easier.
Think i'll incorporate a few IF days each and every week from now on and hopefully it will improve things overall.

I love that we're all in it together anyway.

Hey there

I'm thinking that CAD is where I belong these days.
I have lost around 25 pounds in the last 2 months, using IF, along with the one hour limit per Rachel's story (thanks Eno)!
Hoping to get more technical questions answered from you folks that have followed the CAD plan for years.

When do you stop eating?
Do you have a cut-off everyday?
Do you use any artificial sweetners?
Do you ever do extended IF?

Thanks for your time
