    Belle & Evans roasted chicken thighs tossed in orange vinaigrette with chili flakes + mixed cauliflower, dates, kale salad for dinner with said vinaigrette. I ate the small thigh without the skin and ¼ of salad - the rest was Mr. Sophie's portion.

    Ahhhhh, the classic jean jacket. A timeless staple for every wardrobe! These are my two favorites purchased after WLS. Great for concealing saggy arms, too. You must model for us your new consignment finds, plus that perfect little jean jacket when you find it! Fun. I just love ms.sss's jacket, too. It would look splendid with her gauzy pieces before summers end. I'm currently on the look out for a white jean jacket to replace former size 2X one. ;]

    Thanks! Still need that brachioplasty + abdomen scar revision to pull the dress off without a shawl. Re-scheduled surgery for November due to client/project needs early Fall. Need my arms and hands fully operational right now to draft up floor plans, elevations, architectural details etc. effectively. It will be wonderful someday to wear a short sleeve dress or blouse without the need to cover the bat wings! Pretty scary, right? Skin is so heavy on my small frame now. Each arm probably weighs one pound in loose skin. Oh boy. Until then - wiggle jiggle at the drafting board we go... Haha. ;]

    Boy, and they say California girls have all the fun! I wish we all could be Aussie girls... I think the BeachBoys need a re-write. What a fabulous option! Looks divine. You even match the black helicopter. A Vogue spread, indeed. Enjoy! Have room for an American girl?

    I'm in State College (my hometown) later next week!!! You can bring me over some! Haha. I use to be a big meat and potatoes gal... now a flexitarian with preference for veggies, nuts, beans and crustaceans. I can only tolerate tiny bites of beef, chicken or pork in less than 2 oz. However, I still do well and enjoy a little tender lamb chop with mint jelly. Maybe Monday's dinner?! :]

    Will you come on down and cook for us!!! WOW, looks DELISH! BTW, my sister lives in Marblehead - And, there's nothing like a New England steamed lobster! When speaking earlier about simplifying - I can now enjoy a lobster without all the rich dips into warm butter and of course, the johnny cakes to go with it. Or, like here in the South - corn frites or cornbread. Tried a piece of California Pizza Kitchen's cauliflower crust slice - it wasn't too bad.

    Hi Kaki68 - You are definitely a STAR at any weight or stage! Please excuse my delay in reply here. I have a project deadline by the end of the month, but will definitely follow-up with the mindset + strategies that helped me make it to the penthouse as Dr. V refers. Meanwhile, the books I've posted here are a worthy read and a wealth of information on food science that may just apply to your current situation... Keeping in mind, each body is unique to one's self and one size plan does not fit all. Productive efforts, positive changes and advances internally do not always show up on the scale or inches, at first glance. Your body will sense your frustration and shut down. Give to yourself grace body, soul and mind. Looking into possible hormone issues is great step towards self care and self love. And, remember when our parents use to say, Rome was not built in a day! Hugs.

    Me three. I find my interests no longer entertain what the next meal is going to be. I've found and savor the simple, clean and uncomplicated dish mostly. Today, I made this navy bean soup with cumin in the instant pot - And, WA LA...instant dinner containing a balance of nutrients. Hubby likes the lean ham and bacon. I like the hint of flavor they add to the broth and beans...

    Okay, then! Our resident Bond girl kills it with her British khaki raincoat. Love that peep of a wash board tummy. Now, I need a rain coat. Hope your team won! x o ;]

    Love him, too! Eat a wonderful salad everyday. Hubby enjoys a green smoothie each morning. Most thankful and glad to have made it to the penthouse! Dr. V is spot on when stating so many in the field often have such low expectations for their patients. As my Naval Academy father use to say, "If you're going to do something half-assed, don't do it at all!" Dad was and Dr. Vuong is a colorful communicator, but I've never doubted his sincerity, intelligence + care for the bari community. Ditto... very supportive, informative and encouraging! ;]

    Refreshing salad for lunch today, too. Slivered cauliflower, dates, green olives, raw walnuts, white raisins on bed of greens. Made an orange citrus vinaigrette. Ate half. Mr. Sophie enjoyed the rest.

    Hi PE - we missed you and your stunning cuisine. This dish is both colorful and scrumptious, I'm sure. One cannot help but smile. Love the complex pops of purple ingredients... AND, you are at GOAL! Yay! Do share with us a picture on the OOTD thread - so we can all celebrate your tremendous success and achievement. Is the garden cottage renovation complete, too? Please share. So excited to see.

    Brunch this morning. Protein pancakes made with eggs, cottage cheese and rolled oats and a dab of maple syrup. Used leftover pancakes for little lunch sandwiches. Very filling and satisfying... Yum! ;]

    Everyone is looking wonderful! Just look what I've missed... Amazing purse Arab, Incredible abs by Jake, Cool gym digs DT, sss patio dinner dress gorgeous, whose that amazing lady in red by the seaside, stunning sarong wraps on the Kitty, the always fashionable November and a few new comers... Fun! Back from cabin retreat. Wore my favorite cotton T-shirts and stretchies all vacation long. Comfy eyelet cotton dress for errands yesterday. Dinner out tonight with friends, but my toes are still back in that magical gurgling stream.

    Missed everyone! Back home after the cabin retreat. We saw lions, tigers and bears, oh my! Actually, just bears. A mama bear and her two cubs then, a juvenile later down the lane. Here's a few great dishes we savored from a roof top restaurant in town. Hubbies homemade strawberry rhubarb pie-ettes for himself and our cabin guests.

    Had some cauliflower left in the fridge - so tired to replicate this salad we had a few weeks ago at our new fav restaurant. It's thinly sliced raw cauliflower, slivered roasted almonds, sliced dates and kale strips. Tossed and marinated in fresh lemon juice, honey, olive oil with S&P + chili flakes dressing. Shaved Parmesan cheese topping. It was lunch. I ate the entire serving in clear glass bowl.
