    Thanks, Pam. I don't think I've ever had food poisoning before. Ah well, I don't think I'll be gaining weight today.

    Sorry you were sick! Ground turkey was the culprit once for me. Exact situation where my nose knew something may possibly be off but I didnt' listen. Those noses of ours sure are smart. Have you had any water yet today? If not, start very slowly. If you bombard your tummy with too much at first it will disagree that you are ready. Tiny sips of water and a tiny bit of rice or broth to start would be my suggestion. Hope all is well by now!

    I hope you feel better
    I may end up trying your avocado mash it sounds delish and I have an avo at home waiting for me
    I want to touch on the realization you had of walking and losing weight. i thought maybe I was losing it when I would tell people all i'm doing is walking nothing else, but that's what I'd do walk slowly and some little jogs put in there and it was like 2 days later i was at least a pound light. I couldn't explain it. But it worked and by golly I'm going to continue to do it. WTG on your low number

    The light bulbs really went on for me when Mark said low-level cardio was the best way to burn up fat, because it corresponded so well to my experience. And it's so easy to incorporate into daily life. I walk for errands within reach instead of taking the bus, take strolls to get out of the house, don't sweat it when we park on the far side of the parking lot (hubby figures his car is less likely to get scratched if he parks in the empty bits), and so on. It doesn't have to be done in a single chunk either: two short walks are as good as a long walk, which is helpful for people like me who have to manage our energy so carefully. It's a wondrous thing And it doesn't ramp up your appetite. And even CW tells you that a half-hour walk, five times a week, is enough to stay in reasonably good shape. But it seems too natural and easy for people to take seriously. We have so gotten into the mindset that you need equipment and gear and machines, an attitude I always found insane.

    And I am feeling okay, thank you. I'm being very cautious and resting and reinstating food very gradually (I'm up to broth, next step, applesauce or a sweet potato). I expect to be back to normal in a day or at most, two.

    I seem to be back to normal this morning. I did get quite hungry around bed-time, but I prefer not to eat at night, so I ignored it. I only get up to eat if the hunger won't let me sleep. It usually goes away after a little while, as it did last night. So yesterday I ended up having one cup of chicken broth and two bowls of unsweetened apple sauce. Not surprising the scale was down again this morning: 147.0.

    It does seem a little unreal to be seeing a number so low on the scales. I had resigned myself to being fat all my life, although I did intend to make one last stab at weight loss. It's been quite the stab... In very slow motion. I remain convinced that the slow motion part of it has been good for me, especially at my age, allowing my skin to shrink back gradually, instead of hanging in folds all over the place. Not that it hasn't gotten looser in some places, but I think it would have been much worse if I had done it quickly.

    Anyway, off to tackle the day. I'm hoping I have better energy than yesterday. I am getting so bored with resting. I am champing at the bit to get proper control of my life. I have to watch out for that: it leads to overdoing things and sets me back. This patience thing is hard when it stretches out over such a long time.

    Loving that low weight. Way to go. You've had an amazing amount of patience to get where you are, so it's just a wee bit more. Pretty exciting.

    Glad you're feeling better! The world always seems extra good after getting over stomache issues, headaches, etc.

    Have a great day with gentle food and gentle movement -- and maybe a great book thrown in!

    Ah books. Working on One Hundred Years of Solitude, but not sure if I'm liking it.

    I will get really excited if I can find tall boots that fit this year, without having to buy wide shaft ones. I have very round calf muscles (I still buy queen size knee-high nylons, because the elastic on normal sizes gets very painful) and being able to buy "normal" boots would be such a wonderful thing.

    Glad you are feeling better!

    Congrats on the new number! You are doing awesome!

    I hear ya on the boots. The only ones I've found that ever worked for me were micro-fiber so they stretch. I have large calves too, more like cows. Hope you have fantastic luck when you shop!

    "more like cows" ROFL!

    I haven't had tall boots in years. Virtually every part of me is non-standard in shape and proportions, including my feet. In addition to big calves, I have wide feet and tall arches (apparently a rare combination). Getting boots to fit all three weirdities is pretty well impossible. But I continue to hope. A tall pair of riding boots would be nice so I could wear my jeans skirt all winter. In the meanwhile, I wear men's lace-ups... Yes, I know. Very elegant. But good for walking at least.

    I ate a standard lunch today, and so far no ill effects. The rest of my poached salmon, cut up with broccoli florets and more red peppers (I guess you can all tell where the good prices were last week, eh?) and a bit of onion, topped with dillweed, olive oil, and wine vinegar. I get seriously blissed out with food like that.

    My tastes have indeed changed. Just had an espresso with honey in it. Gack! Way too sweet. I used to like it syrupy. I will halve the amount next time, or maybe start with no honey at all.
