            Fitday (1533cal/104gfat/47.6carbs/116.2g protein)

            wt. in a.m. 117lbs (-3)

            A trend I'm seeing is that the milk here and there adds up the carbs. Gonna replace it with the coc. milk I bought today. Also I ingest a lot of stevia packets. Not sure if that's a good thing. And I need to ditch the stupid baking chocolate. I was using this to curb my intense chocolate cravings!

            The almond pancakes are great, but I think I'm going to use them as an occasional treat.. they are loaded in calories per serving and not too low on the carbs either. BUT THEY ARE YUMMy!

                PC-glad you liked the BLT's :-) (I actually stole it from my weight watcher days-it's a cute little acronym). Question for you, how come egg whites and not the whole egg? I ask because it's something I had to get used to also since I bought into the CW of eggs leads to bad things. Old habits die hard. The yolk carries all the nutrients and is the best tasting part. I'm not criticizing your choices just asking. Have a great day!
