Smile Hello!

Libby.....the puppies were English Pointers. They were cute, but that's not a breed that typically needs c-sections either! We see lots of c-sections in accidental matings, and small smushed face breeds. What kind of dogs do you have? (I have an ADORABLE Jack Russell - spayed though!)

Weighed myself today and changed my stats....didn't gain as much as I thought on my break....

Today:
Blue cheese dip and celery
Roasted red pepper and salami and cheese
Chicken enchiladas for dinner?

Beautiful here today (for once!)....

Talking A beautiful day in the neigborhood.

The gardening supplies are sitting on the patio, waiting to be used or moved or given away.

Someone pointed me to another website about getting rid of negative emotions with acupuncture meridian tapping. I downloaded the manual (free) and have read it. The process just might work, the jury is still out. I've noticed that when I get way too excited, I eat to calm down, or to numb out a little. I suppose it's better than whiskey. Yep, chocolate is WAY better than whiskey! I'll post the url here for anyone that wants to try it.

Default Dogs

If we get started on dogs we will have to create our own forum. LOL!

I live with Borzoi and a Flat Coated Retriever. We are show people and tend to spend many of our weekends in Motel 6's at dog shows. This past weekend my Flat Coat picked up her first points at our own local shows with her breeder in attendance. It was so much fun.

Next week I am babysitting a litter of 10 Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies that will be 7 weeks old. I will have them for 10 days. Silly me.

I'm new also at low-carbing.

You might need to check out a 'hidden carb' counter and get the true carb count on the 'bars' you are eating.

I believe this one is located at this site:

http://www.lowcarb.ca/low-carb-tools/hidden_carbs.html


Some of the ingredients act like carbs in our bodies, and they need to be counted as carbs. Put the nutritional info into this counter and it will give you the TRUE carb count.

Also, I believe on the CALP diet, you are to limit your carbs at the non-reward meals. I hope some of the CALPers will reply to your post. Like I said, I am new and I am currently on Atkins. I am hoping to start CALP soon.

Check out the link above and let me know what it says about the bars.

God Bless!

Marsha

Default Bars

Sorry Jill, the bars will hold you back, as will the smoothy mix. When I very very first started, I kept protein and veggies to eat on hand. I'd eat a boiled egg and a piece of lettuce, or some olives, a bit of meat and a vegetable. Not much more than a bite, but I ate several times a day and dropped a bunch the first week. Then found the book and found out I wasn't supposed to eat more often than every 2 hours. I didn't use any instant foods and dropped about 20 pounds. SO, I guess I better take my own advice and go boil some eggs and wash some veggies!

Question

Ok what's an option for someone who HATES eggs (with the exception of one of mom's deviled eggs)?

(Still reading the CALP book...)
I appreciate the input

There ARE NO options, YOU MUST EAT EGGS!!

Gee, wouldn't that suck? I'm sure you know of things that are protein that aren't eggs or soy.

Hi all...

Yesterdays meals:

Br: 10 strawberries, 1 coffee

L: Cabbage soup

D: 2 bacon/tomato sandwiches with LC bread & mayo. about 7 mini baked tacos with salsa.

Not as much water as I want. Got busy at work again and I forget to drink. Gotta find a solution (other than putting a reminder in my calendar to drink water every 1/2 hour!!! which I thought of doing)

Still holding steady at 154. Welcome to the new people since I haven't been around.

For those of us who don't care for eggs, I found it helpful to eat deviled eggs, make tuna with extra eggs, lots of ham w/ a little egg and lots of extra sharp cheddar (LC). Other than that eat meat or cheese. It's what I do.

Good Luck!!

I also found a Soy Protein shake w. about 2-3 carbs after running it through the carb counter. It's at the Vitamin World stores. 90% protein is the name of it. I like it b/c it's very plain, but I add cocoa powder,ice, splenda, and cream for a pretty good drink.

Talking Good Morning Good Morning!!

I think the tooth fairy....oh wait..... um........ the whoosh fairy? That's it....... the Whoosh Fairy sat under my bed alllll night last night and I was two pounds lighter when I woke up. See, if you gritch and moan enough the Whoosh Fairy comes to shut you up!!! HA!

Hello Marsha, Hello Firmdiva. Welcome to the room!
I have stayed away from prepackaged bars/drinks/diet thangys from the very beginning so I cannot give advice.

My best suggestion, if you haven't already, is to start a journal. Best thing I ever did, and I get a kick out of going back and looking the things I wrote. Track everything that interests you.

ALSO, read, read, read, and not just CALP. I love my local library!

This way of life is still a learning experience for many of us. Even months down the road I am still learning how I react to things. We are all so different. Give yourself LOTS of time to figure things out. Be willing to make mistakes.

Eggs: hmmm. I don't know what to tell ya. I love eggs and I grow my own which is wonderful. I remember when I first started CALP thinking that a low carb breakfast was going to be hard to do, but once I discovered that I could eat non-typical foods for breakfast I was on my way! Yesterday I had grilled salmon (buy from the butcher and make him wrap them individually so you can stick them in the freezer) and fresh steamed green beans. Lovely.

I see I wrote a novel again,
Libby

Default whoosh fairy

I also woke up this morning with a 2 pound loss! The whoosh fairy must have gotten around last night! I lost the pound I had gained during my messups last week and then another pound bringing me down to 185! I love this diet!
