    Food Before and After Photos

    I add a bit of baking powder to ever cake dessert pastries that use flour (unless it's a yeast recipe or unleavened bread) as insurance.

    I received 3 emails in about 18 months of security breaches, that's when I stopped logging altogether. It may not have affected everyone but I get notifications was enough to tip the scale for me

    Beautiful! What did you use instead of butter? It's apple season so I also made deconstructed apple pie last night (or apple pie dip https://cookiesandcups.com/apple-pie-dip/) It was much more efficient than making a whole pie without a special occasion lingering.

    I thought I heard of a romaine recall for either E. Coli or Listeria but maybe I'm mistaken. You don't like tiny toasted breads 😩?

    Today's Dilemma!

    Be honest but resolved in your choice. The person that I chose as my medical proxy asked me the night before surgery if "I was certain I didn't want to just do it naturally"! I found it abhorrent to try and dissuade me at the last minute. But I was unwavering. If someone can make you doubt yourself or decision, you may have to consider whether or not you want to invite that type of issue prior to surgery. I told my people after (quite a long time after for fear of open ended criticism) and no one was surprised or critical because I apparently "did well". My Mum said of course how else could you have lost the weight so fast 🤣 Since your father is sweet you may not have a problem at all. If he has any concerns ask him to attend a seminar (before or after) or go with you to pre-op, etc. Good Luck and Congratulations ♥️

    Chicken Avocado Salad Another salad? Yes. I was overzealous when buying salad greens and accidentally bought a box that expired 10/15. However, they are organic and last a lot longer than their "best by..." date so I am determined to beat the clock in these. I'm also logging consistently - likely because the Baritastic app is easy and doesn't expose my private information to cyberattacks (Under Armour/MFP ... thanks)

    Cellulite & Varicose Veins

    My cellulite mostly disappeared but I didn't have much. I mostly had compact and very firm fat. My varicose veins and spider veins, which are hereditary, shrank to very thin and don't feel tender/sore anymore. But they are still there although very hard to see unless I'm really looking. Unfortunately I didn't document this aspect with photos 😩

    Are these ice pops a good choice

    They look good especially for electrolyte replacement. The flavor my decide how you ultimately feel about them.

    Oh how I love that moto jacket! Your nails look lovely and the perfect length, unlike my extremely impractical set 😂 Also the food looks so hearty and comforting

    I just used the Trader joe's box mix but added onion powder and paprika. I flatten them like patties for even cooking while pan frying in ~1/8 c of oil (1/4 inch or less in a pan)

    Don't forget you can drink warm items like bone broth or other protein broth so you don't burn out on protein shakes. Hoping you have fewer and super effective dilatations ❤️
