    Doesn't that blow your mind? I've had this happen time and time again. Makes me shake my head. I think sometimes a shake up to the ole metabolism wakes it up? Who knows....just glad once in a while we can have our cake (within reason) and lose weight, too:)

    Creekimp13 reacted to JanineVSG in Started transitioning into vegetarianism. First day has gone good so far!   
    I will totally let you know! I just realized that I haven't really enjoyed the way meat tastes lately... so I wanted to make this change. I've decided to do pescatarianism though instead of straight vegetarianism just to make sure I can get that protein in!

    I love vegetarian stuff, and incorporate a LOT of vegetarian recipes into my forever diet. I still do eat animal protein, but much less than many of my bariatric peers. I try hard to get at least half of my protein each day from plant sources.
    If you run into any recipes you just love...please share:)

    You won't always be right and people won't always agree with you. And sometimes you will be right...and people still won't agree with you. LOL:) Sometimes you'll say the most innocent thing...and ten people will think you're a jerk. So what?
    Netiquette is weird and sometimes it takes time to figure it out. Some of us never quite figure it out and must suffer a little scorn due to our abrasive manner. Meh...so what?
    At the end of the day, you have to grow a thicker skin and say...Meh, who cares?
    So, stick around....or take your leave if you prefer...it's all good. Of all the things in life worth feeling angsty and stressed about....the bariatricpal board ain't one of 'em.
    Reign in the drama laama and stick around if you get a kick out of the place.
    Or don't. Up to you:)

    Car debt is the bane of my existence. Wont do it. And I love Toyota...I drive (and LOVE) my 2015 Camry...so I know how hard that was. Absolutely awesome you're getting the walking in, instead. Love that so much! Also teaches good habits to the kiddo....which is brilliant.
    Speaking of kiddo and cars..I've spent the last three months combing the web for a used car for my daughter. She has a summer job lined up here and needs a car to get to various labs and sample sites....and I won't let her go into more debt. (she has minimal student loans and will graduate next year with her microbiology degree)
    I found her a 2008 Malibu from Tennessee, clean inside and out...with just barely 100K on it...and I'm feeling incredibly accomplished. $3000, we paid cash CarFax is clean, mechanic said it was in great shape and she should get a few years out of it yet. Very common car with cheap parts if repairs are needed in the future. Previous owner did a valve job and replaced timing chain, and all maintenance was done at dealership. Brand new tires and brakes.
    It's parked in our driveway as we speak. Runs and sounds like brand new.
    I can't wait to see her face:)

    I used to love to suck hard candies while working. Someone on here posted a recipe for sugar free gummy bears.
    1/3 cup water
    3 packs of unflavored geletin
    whatever koolaid flavor you want, half a pouch
    no calorie sweetener to taste
    (or just use sugar free jello in a flavor you like!)
    You boil it, then drip it in little molds or small ice cube trays...whatever you want
    then you let it cure for 2-3 days in the fridge.
    They really do taste quite a bit like gummy bears....and you get protein in the gelatin win-win:)

    I also do a lot of dry meat in the oven.
    Just marinate a lean meat in anything you like...I like hot pepper juice, soy, garlic..
    Then hang it on the racks with a drip pan underneath. Set the oven for 180 and let it go half the day....
    Like jerky....but lots better for you!

    I slice my apples up with a crank slicer, dip them in lemon so they don't brown...spray the racks with cooking spray so they'll pop off...and essentially just let the thing run until they're crunchy. Takes hours and time depends on humidity.
    For cherries, I like to slice them in half, remove the pit and get them drying. They're a juicy mess...but there is nothing better. There are tons of tutorials online for different kinds of dehydrators.

    My huge danger food... Frozen yogurt fudge pops. I like them entirely too much, and it's way too easy to say...but they're only 80 calories and you get 6 grams of protein! Very easy to be naughty with them. Cause in truth....one is probably not gonna hurt me. But two is trouble... and sometimes they sing to me a little. Hush!
