    football was a win for our team --- something like 67-6! The other team didn't have a prayer! It was really pretty boring. Its JV football............. not the greatest or most exciting level of the sport. Oh well.

    Dinner was LATE - we were eating at 8:15 pm. I hate it when we eat so late. Now its 11 pm and I'm still feeling too full to go to bed. I should have made a smaller salad - but I was pretty hungry - considering I had 4 slices of bacon at 11 - and nothing else all day, except for a couple spoons of almond butter just before we left for the game.

    I had a bit of a sweet tooth tonight and snitched a few little bites of brown sugar.......... now I have to leave the "NO sugar" block empty on my chart......... dang it! Oh well - it tasted pretty good! At least I didn't sit and eat a 1/4 cup of it!

    I need to get another cake mix for MILs party .... There will be a lot of people there and I don't want to run out of cake! So, it will be a sheet cake and double high. Guess I should get another frosting too. For some reason I'm not at all looking forward to this family gathering - I'm usually up for any family gathering. Maybe cuz its a week night -and will be a rush to get there and then we'll have to get home before it gets too late --- and I'm picking hubby up from the boatshop and going straight to MIL's house - so not sure what we'll about dinner. UGH......... I hate these kinds of things. rush rush rush.......... this is the hardest part about eating this way........ sometimes its just so darned inconvenient. I mean, in the old days I would just grab a burger and fries or something. This way takes a lot of planning and preparing ahead of time. I'll have to figure out what to do. Well, honestly I could eat before I go to get hubby - and he can eat a burger on the way. There we go. Problem solved. I'll ask my son to make a double batch of his yummy chicken thing.

    Okay.......... night night pills are kicking in and my eyes are getting heavy - going to have to sign off and go to bed!

    So --- not sure what to think of this, but I had another new low this morning. 181.6!!!! WooootWooooot! I would have never believed I could eat bacon and almond butter and tons of other fat and LOSE weight!!! It goes against all the CW teaching that has been ground into my brain for the past 50 years! "if you want to lose weight you have to eat high fiber/low fat foods" ---- nope --- someone got it wrong and they are still trying to prove themselves right. I wonder what I'll say when someone asks me how I lost all my weight? If I say I ate lots of FAT they'll look at me like I'm crazy! HAHA - might be kind of fun to see the reactions.

    Anyway --- I'm down 25 pounds now since changing to this WOE. I'm pretty pleased. I'm looking forward to getting the weight where I don't feel fat and frumpy anymore! Maybe 20 more pounds? I'm also very anxious to be able to fit into my old and my new jeans! I'm still in an XL top though....... thats sad.

    Okay ladies.......... here's an odd statement: I've lost 25 pounds -- but my "girls" are still a D cup size. I've gone down nearly 2 band sizes - but the cup size is staying the same! I'm so excited that I might end up thin AND still have some "frontage" ! Before when I weighed 135 (goal weight) I could barely fill a 32A bra! Granted - the D isn't quite as FULL as it was 25 pounds ago - but they are still fitting nicely. Next purchase will likely be a 34C ............. but you know what --- If I can end up with even a B cup I will be totally satisfied!

    Just took the cakes out of the oven for the MIL birthday party tonight. Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Fudge. I won't be having any and thats just fine with me......... I'm loving the scale too much these days to want to mess up my progress! and since I've been eating fairly clean I'm feeling really good - no chocolate cake is worth feeling bad over. But the house does smell quite heavenly!

    If I can just inch a little closer to 180 each day I will be a happy girl. Will keep up this program........ high fat/moderate protein/VLC and keep up the walking 3-5 hours a week. It seems to be working.

    Here's the question though, when were you a 32A? Hormones change and all, so you might luck out and keep a lot of that. I've read accounts that go both ways though (that they kept the rack, or they lost it). Make sure you get a proper size, either way!

    I read another that had you lean over when making one measurement, but I can't find it now. I should be a 32B, apparently, but have still never tried one on.

    Last time I wore a 32A is was 35 years old and was 135 pounds. Just before gaining all this blubber! I've always been small chested, except when I was breast feeding. So its hard to imagine being that thin and still having a nice "rack" I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

    I know you're supposed to bend over when putting on a bra --- to get all the peices and parts into the right places! Never heard of bending over for measuring....... but maybe if you're really large that would be necessary.

    oh the things we girls talk about...........

    Hi Tomi! Just got caught up on your journal. I've noticed very little change in my girls since losing 37 lbs so maybe we get to keep them this time???

    I'm looking for a Primal cupcake recipe for DS's birthday. I haven't found one yet, but I know one is out there (I haven't looked very hard, though, either. Been focused on cookies for him).

    You're doing a great job making that scale bow to you! Great job!

    Trying to get everything done and out the door - shoving 3 fried eggs down my throat since "dinner" is cake and ice cream tonight. I don't want to get over there and be starving......... cake will make me sick and I don't have any lactose pills for ice cream.

    The cake is done and in the car............ now to get the bodies out the door - picking up hubby on the way............

    Have a great night all!

    Here you are. Primal cookies. I made them with butter and maple syrup. You could try stevia instead to keep yourself on track with no sugar.

Out of 28 people I think that makes us the minority!
    Hey, I take a primal coconut pound cake and trust me, everybody wants a piece. In fact, I get ordered to bring it. Again, it has honey in it, so not sugar-free, but totally grain-free. Let me know if you want the recipe.

    Oh yeah, the reactions will be fun. There was moaning and groaning about the fat in avocados at a recent family BBQ, but they all stopped when I said I ate a couple of them a week, and my daughter crowed in triumph "And we all know how much weight SHE's lost!" End of discussion. Too funny.

    I've been pleasantly surprised too. I dropped a cup size the first time I went down, but now I suspect that was because the band size was still a bit big. I think I will probably end up in a 34D, which is going to complicate life a wee bit. None of the cheap bras come in that size. Mind you, none of them come in the size I am now, either. I suppose having fewer choices will make shopping quicker and easier. If I deflate more than I expect, I could end up in the C cup, which is fine with me. Any flatter than that and I quit losing weight! LOL!

    Yup, keep up with what you're doing. What works, works.

    Judg, I've found bras at Walmart for $10 in size 40D (that's what I wear right now).

    That was my size too. But a D-cup with a 40 band is considered normal. A D-cup with a 34 band is not. Not even with a 36 band. Even a C-cup with a 34 is hard to find, at least in the cheapie section...

    My biggest issues with bras is that I'm allergic to acrylic, and the fibre content labels always read "Exclusive of trimmings". Which means if there's any acrylic in the thread, the elastic, the lace, I'm in trouble. Especially because you normally can't return them, and I can't always tell in the dressing room, although I'm getting pretty good at it. I need about 15 minutes in a bra before I know, and who wants to sit 15 minutes in each bra in a dressing room? So once I find a bra that works, I keep buying it. The ones that worked don't go down to my new sizes. And it really, really burns me to have to chuck an expensive bra after wearing it for 15 minutes. One of my new ones is causing minor issues. *sigh* Thread. That's the hardest to spot. Okay, it's impossible. So this whole thing psychs me out a little.

    Ugh, that sucks, Judg. I commented on another thread about walmart carrying 40D's... didn't realize that 34D was an odd size. so, disregard my comment.
