    Oh wow, we have similar approaches to 'dieting' over the years. I just don't have four babies to use as an excuse (not that you are, you know what I mean). Sounds like you are getting fab results. Measurements are a great idea. I meant to record my weight, but your post reminds me its more about the measurements.

    You will get bogged down with the number on the scale. Trust me on this - this is exactly where I am today. I had to go the measurements route because the scale wasn't saying what I wanted it to say. LOL

    You don't eat much!

    Have you tried coconut milk to unblacken your coffee, rather than powdered cream?

    Do you make your own guacamole? I can never get it right.

    I feel like I eat a bunch! Of course, the food I eat is really filling, too.

    I've tried the coconut milk and I didn't like it. I may have gotten the wrong thing though. I'm going to try again.

    I do make my own quacamole - coarsely mashed avocado, minced onion (white or red), dash of chili powder, tiny bit of lemon juice, diced tomatoes if I have them, salt to taste.

    Today wasn't a good day emotionally. My counterpart at work is on vacation so I have to take on her job as well as mine. On top of that, one of my other coworkers was out sick, and I'm the only one trained to do a big part of her job. So I was doing three jobs today, and none of them well.

    Then the stupid man issues - I won't even bother with that.

    B: cottage cheese, orange
    coffee w/nondairy creamer/S&L (I bought coconut milk today and heavy cream, so tomorrow I start something new)

    S: handful of almonds

    L: plain greek yogurt with honey

    D: we went out to Luby's Cafeteria. I had fried fish/tartar sauce with cabbage and green beans

    B: vanilla greek yogurt with honey - NOTE: I am giving this up along with eating at breakfast time. I did much better with the 16 hour daily fast. Plus the honey is like crack.
    Coffee with heavy cream/S&L, then another cup with F Vanilla coconut milk - I didn't think about the sugars until after I poured it. I took probably about 4-5 sips and then it sat on my desk.

    L: beef taco salad

    S: few chunks of cheddar cheese/pepper jack cheese

    D: baked chicken, lima beans with bacon grease, caprese salad

    S: two squares of Lindt 70% dark chocolate dipped in almond butter

    No exercise today.

    I weighed myself again today. I am really struggling with the scale but old habits die hard, I guess. Soooo frustrating!

    I'm feeling a little bit hungry this morning, but I'm going to stick it out until this afternoon.

    Today was a good day. Went to the grocery store and bought more goodies. I am at 37g for carbs today so I probably should eat something else, but I think I'm just going to leave it alone.

    I also rode my bike today and did some sprints.

    I put jeans on yesterday that I haven't worn in years. They aren't quite ready for public consumption, but at least I buttoned them. I used to not be able to get them all the way up.
