    I like that feeling, too. It makes me strut.

    I've been feeling the same thing. The scale does not agree. I figure by some miracle I'm getting more toned. LOL!

    So after all of the feeling awesome yesterday I semi sabatoged it all. Was supposed to go for coffee with friends yesterday afternoon but the cafe we were supposed to go to was closed. Ended up at crabby joes and everyone else was eating so I decided to grab a pound of wings. This was in spite of my other set of plans last night which was for an AYCE wings event (movember event specifically). All in all last night I put down at least 3lbs of wings and a pint of guiness. Needless to say I felt like ass this morning... fasting for the day outside of 2 tablespoons of MCT and some tea- will likely break it after work with my evening *possibly dinner* plans tonight with friends.

    We falls down. We picks ourselves up, dusts ourselves off, and starts walking again.

    We don't have to do a perfect job to win at this game. Just a good enough job. You are winning.

    So I know it's been a while since I've posted a plate! So here's the awesome lunch I had today... Little on the sweet side but I'm damn proud of how these turned out!

    Pumpkin pancakes! Pumpkin, coconut flour and eggs. On the side: home made strawberry jam (still warm!), freshly whipped cream, and bacon! And of course maple syrup and butter on top

    Pumpkin pancakes... Ooooh. Proportions?

    You realize this is calling out for spices, don't you?

    I've got one more to share. I was in the mood to cook

    Lamb marinated with salt, pepper and fresh thyme- cooked in bacon fat and placed over a creamy sweet potato, roasted garlic, and mint puree all sprinkled with chives. Grilled bacon and shitake mushrooms on the side and thyme springs to garnish.

    For Christmas 2003 (Grade 11 year), my sister bought me a pair of jeans that didn't fit. Those jeans have been in my closet ever since then. In frustration of my current pants getting too big lately I decided to try them on again. Now my weight stalled about 3 months back but I KNOW that they didn't fit then (because I did try them on around that time). All I know is that they fit today and that they are comfy. The weight may not be moving but it's at very least shifting and all I can say is that it's nice to get the new pants without having to shop for them.

    That food looks delicious! And hooray for pants that have waited for so long and now fit - excellent news. Obviously what you are doing is working even if the scale doesn't agree...
