    Good call - if your breakfast isn't giving your body the message, I don't know what will (<3 bacon and guacamole). I'm carefully watching fat intake too because of this Dr. Eades article:

    The Blog of Michael R. Eades, M.D. Low-carb and calories

    I feel like, DOY!, after reading it. Fat still has its place and is important for satiety, but I'm trying to make a goal of eating more protein than fat. That's part of what I'm doing on MyFitnessPal too, not just keeping the calories within a limit, but studying how different amounts of carbs, fats and proteins affect me over time.

    Hmm! I never thought of rooibos as sweet. If it is, it's definitely earthy too:-) I love gunpowder tea and pu erh and lapsong souchong (actually, that's my favorite but smoked is a very good migraine trigger) and mint and ginger.

    So as much as the leptin "3 square meals a day" thing has been reccomended I've always been an "eat when you're hungry don't when you're not" kind of guy... Well. I wasn't really hungry today... at all... So I didn't really eat anything... at all. I had some tea and a cup of coffee as well at an evening church service today but I didn't feel hungry at all until about 10:30pm (bout a half hour ago). At this point I've decided it's too late to eat. I'm going to grab some water, call it a night, and worry about food in the morrow. Just an odd day foodwise I guess.

    It seems like the eat when hungry would be wiser unless "hungry" was 24/7. I bet you lost weight today. Did you drink any water?

    Bit of water but nothing to keep me "full". I think i had maybe half a bottle. It's odd because I've been awake for an hour and a half and I'm not hungry yet. I hope nothing's wrong... I may eat just for the sake of doing so this morning.

    ***Update: Only about a pound and a half off this week. It's weight off but it's a little disheartening after I had done soo well my first month.

    Well, I'm impressed with your 292. It's going to be reading 280 something so soon. It's probably a real certainty you'll be hungry very soon (like in an hour):-) Sometimes, when I read Tfarny's take on things, I wonder if our stress about the whole thing -- I mean, my G-d, we're fat and don't want to be -- is slowing the whole thing down. BTW, you look great as a large sized guy. I'm one of the unfortunate ones that looks terrible fat. And I'm getting cranky at myself. Tfarny went to Egypt for three weeks -- basically totally off primal -- and lost 9 pounds. Go figure!

    Pam! You are too sweet! I'm trying to let this morning go and start planning out what I'm going to do to make my one and a half pounds a full 2 pounds this week. Also, no matter what you think about how you look as a bigger woman I know that you are the type of person to always have a big smile on your face and a warm heart that you share with others- nothing is more beautiful than that. Let's keep each other accountable as we work on our journys together!
