    We both cook, but, since he doesn't eat anything but dinner, I usually get the leftovers.

    Currently I am generally cooking 4-6 meals at at time. This might be the same 'meal' split into 6 servings or two different meals divided up based on the ingredients on hand. This way we have dinner, lunch, and a variety of leftovers in case something comes up and I can't cook. Sometimes I cook 6-8 servings of different meats and we are on our own for side choices.

    My DH usually won't take leftovers with meat in them (his interpretation of the cardiologists nutritionist's advice) except meatloaf, which for him I make with oatmeal (same advice). He is a carboholic! He is actually on the thin side, so obviously since I am obese and he is not, I don't know anything about nutrition even though I spent 2 years as a nutrition major. Oh sorry, started a rant there.

    He eats the carby stuff, I eat the meat/protein stuff.

I know you don't want to be wasteful, but I can't imagine the calcium supps cost you all that much, and if they did, save it for putting in your garden!! I read you can crush egg shells and place them in the bottom of the holes you place your plants and they'll absorb the calcium. Might be a way for you to use it without consuming it. I plan to start saving eggshells as spring approaches to supplement our soil (I read that is why my tomatoes got blossom rot).
    "EGG-cellent" suggestion, Jenn!!!!! I am going to ditch the calcium and see if I can grind it up for the garden - AND start saving my egg shells as well.

    You always throw me great helps! thanks

    I think it would work with any android device.
    I will have to look for this on my phone. I want a Kindle Fire. I plan to get one of those instead of a regular tablet. I think it'll work well as both a tablet and an e-reader.

    I am the cook. I make enough for dinner and two lunches.

    No problem. Just trying to share what I've learned.

    If your calcium is in tablet form, you could probably just dissolve them in some water and pour it onto the soil as you plant, saving you the hassle of crushing them all. No idea as to how much calcium per gallon or anything like that.

    Did you also know that sidewalk chalk is made out of crushed egg shells too? Makes it non-toxic if kids like mine eat it. My daughter is notoriously eating sidewalk chalk and then tell us "chalk not food, we don't eat chalk" as she's chomping on a mouthful of it. lol

    I am eating well and averaging a five mile walk daily. Maybe I was at a low weight on Monday morning because I walked 20 miles Friday-Sunday. I don't have time to do that often because I work 40 hours a week. I would hate to think it takes that much exercise while eating around 1300-1400 calories daily with good macros.
    Calee - it is possible to OVER do it on the exercise! You're body retaliates by storing fluids to fix over worked tissue and muscle. Which sounds like thats whats happening with the swollen fingers (a tell tell sign of water retention and inflamation) I wonder what would happen if you cut your walks in 1/2 and added some weights to the mix?

    My apologise if this has already been suggested - I'm posting as I read through the thread so haven't read what was posted after this.

    4. hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
    5. be patient
    6. if possible avoid sulfates in your body washes, they dry the skin out
    7. use a filter on your shower head if your water has a lot of chlorine in it

    Anyone else have any ideas? We are all going to need them.

    p.s. one of the recurring themes online is not to lose weight so fast that your skin can't keep up with the changing shape. So if you have some loose skin, know that it will catch up, but that it means you are seriously losing some weight! Take heart.
    I don't think I'm losing weight fast. It's been about 2 weeks since I've been on the scale. As far as I know, I'm still in the 200's. Now I need to find a filter for the showerhead. Since I'm on village water, it wouldn't surprise me that there is a lot of chlorine in it.

    I think a lot of this just comes from being bigger for most of my life and feeling like I won't have anything to show for my hard work. It's always been a big fear of mine.
