    Hi Winencandy!!

    Now it's my turn to stop by for a visit!

    I totally feel you on being careful about what messages you are sending your kids re: food. I have two daughters, and right now they are very supportive of my weight loss efforts, but I really want to make sure that they hear that I am focused on health, not on "being skinny." D11 already has friends who actually scrape the cheese off of pizza "because that's fat!" and then eat the crust. :P . Luckily their school has a "Farm to Fork" curriculum this year where they are reading, among other things, The Omnivores' Dilemna (kids' version) and Chew On This (a kid version of Fast Food Nation), so there's been a lot of talk about where our food comes from, why we eat different kinds of things, etc. Both my girls are very small and lean, as I was growing up, so I'm hopeful to steer their diet to more primal offerings while not ending up with their obsessing over food and body image.

    On eating more when we eat breakfast, all I can say is that I really, really like IF'ing and not eating breakfast. Breakfast makes me feel gross and full (even if I don't eat much) long before my system feels like it needs the fuel. I suspect that especially if people eat carby things, the blood sugar spike makes you want more (mid-morning snack, then lunch etc).

    Oh, my goodness, what an adorable muddy mess Lily is!!

    Sometimes you just gotta eat, no big deal.

    So, you're still counting calories this month?

    I had a tiny glimpse of what NourishedEm might have gone through trying to clean Charlie
    Did the mud stink like dried, dead fish? No? Then it really is just a glimpse. But then Lily's coat is long which makes it a hell of a lot harder! It's a good job we love them eh?

    Hi, and welcome!

    I remember the 1st time my daughter "thought" she was fat. She was in grade 6 (and she was tiny)...I'd received a large bag of clothes from a friend's daughter. My Daughter was trying them on and she couldn't get one pair of shorts on. She got all quiet and then finally told me she was too fat to fit in the clothes.

    My stomach flipped. I thought I'd have a few more years before I had to worry about her feeling that way. We talked for a while about positive body images and popular media's distortions, (and in my desperation to get her to "see" I even compared her to some of her classmates - I wish I hadn't "gone there") But the only thing that finally got through to her was when I asked to see the shorts. They were a child's size 6!!! Once she realized that, she was able to "see"...

    She's been really good since then. She has a dancer's/gymnast's body, but she's almost 16...

    That is a BIG part of why I don't want her to think I'm "watching" (weighing/measuring) my food.

    I think so. It seemed to help me. And it seemed to work (now that I checked on a "proper" scale)
    I don't have a really good idea of the breakdown of what I eat, 'cause I've never counted before.
    I'm thinking of it as an education. I'm learning. I don't plan on doing this forever...

    I think my main focus will be on meeting my protein grams and keeping my carbs under 100.

    I'm gonna try to NOT stress about the numbers, and I'm only gonna post them here...

    Good. I'm glad you are sticking with it.

    My dog loves nothing better than a really stinky seagull corpse to roll in. Then he can't understand why he gets put in the tub. "But I put on my best cologne just for you. Essence of Dead Seagull."
