    CO is supposed to give you an energy boost? Honestly I've never tried to eat it just plain. I've cooked with it - but don't really like the flavor of the coconut in my food. I can't imagine just putting a spoon of it in my mouth.......... eeeek!

Good for you getting back onto the wagon and your plan sounds good. How much coconut oil do you take now? I skipped it today because I was out all day and didn't want to deal with feeling bad while far from home and then going to sleep with CO reactions doesn't work so well either. I am still only taking it once a day - it is rather overpowering in one gulp. Might have to come up with a way to make it a little more edible. Now if that was cream or butter it would be no problem
    I mix it with stevia and cocoa powder very often. With almond butter too, but I'm not doing that much right now, trying to keep carbs down.

    I don't notice much of a buzz either. Maybe I'm just inattentive. But eating lots of fats certainly keeps me feeling full and happy till the next meal.

    No, we just got a wee bit of the edge when it had weakened a great deal. Storm systems usually come up the Eastern Seaboard or Mississippi Valley and then hang a right and follow the St. Lawrence Seaway out to the Atlantic. And Ottawa is perched far enough north of the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence (ironically, to protect the capital from Americans) that we just get the edges of storms, and the smaller ones miss us altogether. The ones coming from the north are a different matter. So we had strong winds (found a branch fallen in my yard and my umbrella got turned inside-out a few times till I just gave up) and weird, low clouds writhing around and going in the wrong direction, which was kind of creepy. But that's it. Toronto, on the other hand, got hit harder, and a woman was killed by a flying sign.

    Dressed up as a hipster to greet the kids at the door. All my own clothes too... yikes! (In my defense, I wouldn't quite wear this exact combination, although it gets scary close.) Popped the lenses out of some 3D glasses to make it look more like a costume. Hipster granny, that's me.

    Except nobody got it was a costume... I must be too hip. That's it, I'm hip, not the weird old lady who dresses funny.

    Aah you two gave me a good giggle! Tee hee - no-one realising you were dressed up. Well, honestly, I bet a lot of their mom's wear pretty wild outfits compared with your hip granny look! I think that must have been so cute though! Wish I could have seen you!

    I bought a couple of bags of chocolate (plain hershey's, almond hershey's) to give out, and no-one came to the door! Now I have candy sitting in the cupboard just begging to be tasted. I am going to have to give it to someone and soon or I know that as soon as a tempting moment arrives I will probably cave! So not going there!

    Quick, Coll -- take the candy to a neighbor - or give it to the mailman!

    Here's my trick when tempted by those nasty little candy bars......... FACT: every full sized candy bar is allowed to have 9 rat hairs in it (FDA allowed). Yummy! ................. no thank you. I'll have a bowl of streamed veggies and dip them in ranch dressing before I'll eat rat hairs coated in gooey chocolate.

    Now........... I don't have PROOF of this "fact" - but I read it somewhere many many years ago - and its still hanging around in the sensibility vault of my brain. It works 90% of the time to keep the candy bar out of my mouth. I'll do a bit of research and see if I can find if there is any truth to this little "factoid".

    Holy yikes!!! That is so nasty! Glad you told me! Sending the candy on to our landlord - hee hee! Need to get rid of the rest though - I already had a couple of bites and I can feel the rest calling me- nooooooo!

    ROFL! Too true. Still, I think some people think I'm weird now. Those glasses were kind of over the top...

    I had more kids come than I expected, so they not only cleared out the chips I had bought, but put a serious dent in the bags of Werther's that my hubby keeps buying. The remaining two are unopened, and I can resist unopened things for a ridiculous length of time.

    Rat hair... yikes! I hope the laws are different here. Ours are often a little stricter.

    Well, despite the fact that I completely blew my leptin reset yesterday, I edged lower today. Mind you, I didn't overeat by any stretch of the imagination, but I had had a bad night, so I started too late to be able to fit three meals in, and I was sick of eggs and coconut oil, so I started with yogurt and berries and fixings, and finished up with a low-protein meal. Late. So I woke up hungry, predictably, and a wee bit lighter than I have been. That's encouraging.

    Anyway, back to re-leptining today. Two fried eggs with salsa and some cappicollo for breakfast, and I'd better go snack on some coconut oil. I have a pear that's begging to be eaten, but I don't think it fits the programme too well, so I'll cut it up and freeze it for a future smoothie.

    I'll check in on all your journals later. I have been undisciplined, and I have things I have to catch up around here before I can justify some leisurely surfing. Take care all.
