They have taken blood so many times (probably mostly checking her levels) and everything dropped after she hadn't taken her birth control for several days (because in hospital).
Everything except her liver levels which are s-l-o-w-l-y dropping. They said it could take at least a couple of weeks, maybe more, for those to get more acceptable.

Since they've ruled out most things (didn't do a liver biopsy), they are blaming her birth control. They honestly aren't positive. They have had to be Sherlock Holmes and I must say they've worked diligently. She won't resume birth control, or that birth control - it was one she could take because she was nursing.

Nursing may be out the window. DD has a number of aches and pains and is deathly allergic to NSAIDs - all aspirin types - and Tylenol is out because of the liver levels.
So the only thing they said she could take was Tramadol. If she takes one, she must pump and dump the milk for 3 days. So we might just say 3 months was a good 3 months.

Must be nice to be so far ahead in the wedding details. Heck even I feel better knowing how much you've got it together!

Tell me about the oat noodles....

Your poor Dd. bottle fed babies turn out great. Her poor body may just need to heal up and not stress itself.

Judy, I know. Yesterday I was at HL and they had simple wedding veils for 17.00, but they had 50 percent off until today. I told Sarah and she was going to tell her mom. What a bargain!!

NOODLE REPORT: they are good...Better than the plain shiratake ones. They end up costing 1.78 a package including shipping.

Yeah, unfortunately FIP is a muscle wasting disease. Simply sucks.

What noodles are you talking about?

Cindy the noodles are like the konjac noodles. They are zero carb, but kind of rubbery.
I can buy the Nasoya (they contain no soy) brand at Wal-Mart. I package contains 30 calories and would be a fairly big helping of noodles - and a lot of fiber. I think it's actually all fiber.

I rinse them until my water bill goes up, then I dry fry them in a pan.
THEN I add a little coconut oil and they actually get crispy! But it takes forever, so usually just the dry fry takes the horrible smell away. They are super neutral. Pasta sauce is the only thing you'll taste.
But they do NOT have the texture of wheat noodles.

Now they make them with oat fiber, which I like very much.
But I need to get them online and I need Carolyn to tell me where.

Carolyn I bought some Nasoya (or whatever that brand is) at Wal-Mart today and they were $2.20 something plus tax, so the online oat version sounds good to me.

I made spaghetti sauce last night (browned a pound of ground beef + onion + green pepper + 1 jar Mario Batalli (sp?) spaghetti sauce + 1 can Italian diced tomatoes). I made some zoodles and added some crispy shirataki noodles. I could eat that once a week. It's been forever since I've cooked.

Never thought of frying them. Konjac has a website. there are lots of shapes to pick from.

I do like the Nasoya, but the oat fiber ones are less rubbery.

Kathy and I finished the decorations. They look pretty nice. They are in my storage container ready for June. I'll take a picture.

Ordered the oat noodles yesterday after reading that thread. I got the spaghetti shape.

My daughter-in-law's mother (Mindy) died in her sleep last night. They are all shocked. They thought she was getting better. This has already been a long year.

Hi everyone!!

Brett and Sarah had breakfast at the coffee shop where we are having rehearsal dinner. Sarah scouted out the tables. Guess what? The event planner gave me the wrong measurements for the tables! Who does that? Anyway, they are 36 inches wide instead of 27 inches. It will be fine. Lolol.

Hoping Judy's family is doing okay.

Started doing IF. Ate lunch at 1:00. I was hungry. Will see how it goes during church. Growwwlllll

Still holding my own staying under the 150 mark. Only 2 more weeks until it's back to reality. I'm so thankful that we were able to do this. We absolutely love it!! And we can't wait for next year!! I'm also thankful I don't have a lot of weight to have to deal with AGAIN when I get home. Just back to my normal routine and everything should be fine.

Wow, Carolyn, that's crazy!! I'm glad it's going to work but what if it didn't? Wow!

Yes, I'm wondering about Judy too. And her family. Sad times for them all.

Hi friends,
Thank you for your thoughts!
We are well.

Mindy's service was yesterday morning at 10AM.
DD took her kids to her brother's and babysat all 4 kids until 3:30 PM. There was a reception afterward at Mindy's house and I guess they didn't want the kids to worry about. It was a beautiful day - Mindy would have loved it.

So DD brought her 2 to our house and she and her DH went to a movie. We told them to take their time. DH took Maddox to hit a bucket of balls and baby Milo goo-gooed and baby-talked me a LOT more than his little cat naps. He is such a nice baby. Only fusses when he's hungry or wants to be changed. Maybe a minute before he stops fighting sleep. He just didn't sleep much.

So we fed the boys and mom and dad came to pick them up around 10. We'd all had a long day, lol.

Carolyn I'm hopeful for your IF-ing. It has changed my life and my size.
And yes I'm with Sandy - that table measurement business is kind of a big "OOPS"!
Glad it will still work.

Sandy we are enjoying your retirement with you!! And thanks again for introducing the kind of IF-ing I could actually accomplish.

OH! Carolyn! Those oat Konjac noodles are fabulous!!!!!
Supposedly zero calorie is what mine say - all fiber, I guess.
They are definitely superior to the noodles we can get at W-M.

Hope everyone is well.

...watching WSU..hope they win then KU later on. We have dinner with friends from China tonight. They had to fly from China on short notice to get re-fingerprinted for their green cards. Thousands of dollars to do this for 3 peeps. Their son is at Temple University. The wife is a diabetic doctor in China. It is a big problem there.

So happy things went well for Mindy's service. Hopefully she had some quality time with her family after her first hospitalization.

Sandy.....yeah you!!! 150!,


Well, second day of IFing until 12:30. I did have one coffee this am. I really wasn't hungry until I started eating. What a shock for me... I carried 1/2 of a Quest bar in case of emergency.

Yes, I couldn't believe the event planner doesn't know the size of those tables. Sarah said they were nice so no tablecloths.

I am reading the book, The Secret Life of Fat. Very interesting. She was on a podcast lately. Fat has a life of its own. It doesn't just sit there.

I know my fat doesn't just sit there, when I move it jiggles!! Lol. I know that's not what you meant but I couldn't resist making a funny.

Babies are so fun and it's always such a relief when they go home, now that we're older. When we first became grandparents we had our oldest 2 almost as much as their parents and loved every minute! I'm glad we were young grandparents. When we watch the little ones now we're exhausted after just a couple of hours. But I can dance all night!!!

My fat moves, too. Have you seen the Fascia Blaster????

I like working in the church nursery, but 90 minutes can be tiring. Lolol

Gary's dad wasn't a grandfather until he was 73.. Betty said he was too old to be a grandpa!! Lolol he was still farming, though.

Glad you like the noodles. I am ordering the spaghetti next time

Another IF day. Ate lunch at 12:30.

Hugs....

I made it until 4:30 when I had a package of those noodles, rinsed them like crazy, then heated them in a pan with a tiny bit of coconut oil. After they were heated, I added not quite 1 Tbsp. butter, shook on a lot of parm, a little garlic powder, and drizzled a touch of HWC. When I do this again (and I will), I'll omit the cream. I thought it would be all Alfredo-ey, but I couldn't even tell it was there.
SO HAPPY.

It doesn't take us long to wear out with the kids. If they were ours, it would be different, but since they're grands, we feel compelled to entertain and take care of every bit of attention. Sandy you're right - being younger would be a lot more fun as a grandparent! Not sure I could dance all night, but maybe!!

So glad you are happy with the noodles. Maybe a thick sauce would stick better.

Oh the butter, garlic and parm stuck great! I was only saying the cream didn't seem necessary, or like it made much of an impact. Didn't want to waste the calories.

Sandy, I was thinking that, too for you,...when you get home, it's noodle time.

Glad everything stuck. Cream is so wet.

Scarlet and I had lunch at Sonic and then a walk in the zoo.. nice day to be out!!!

Meatloaf tonight. Gary's favorite.

This is neither new, nor fancy, but it was really good.
My SS did this and told me to do it.

1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp. lemon juice (bottle is fine)
3-5 cloves garlic (I used 3 and it was very garlic-y! Good, but man you could really smell that cooking! )

Mix up the olive oil, lemon juice and garlic, add a the smaller florets of a head of cauliflower.
Salt & pepper.

In a single layer on a baking sheet, bake 25 or so minutes at 350 degrees.
When the florets are tender, remove and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Can put back in oven or not. Good either way.

These were very good.

Carolyn I vicariously love your relationship with Scarlet!

Wonder where Karen went?

Oh hey - I made a bunch of the crepes to make Bobo's manicotti. We have some things that need to be cooked, then I'll make it. Have you made it, Carolyn?

Yummy..your food sounds wonderful. I do want to try the manicotti. Let me know what recipe you use for the noddles, ok?

Scarlet wants to be a nurse. Of course, being bi-lingual would really help. Nursing school is hard to get into.. Pittsburg State and Wichita State have good schools.

What a mess in London. Poor people

I used Bobo's recipe:

For the crepes:
4 eggs
1/2 cup Ricotta
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 Tbsp Butter

about 1-2 carbs per

I got more than he got. I think I got about 8!

I ate one yesterday, but it hadn't been stored properly, along with its friend in a closed baggie, so it was a little dry. Kind of neutral, which is what I'd really look for.
I will make the manicotti this week, but I'm glad for the crepe recipe because I can see some enchiladas in our future.....

Mind if I join you?

Hi ladies. I'm new(ish), been around a long time but back at the game trying to lose this weight! Anyway, you all seem like a nice group and I was wondering if I could join. I do keto (LCHF) but have done Atkins in the past (when I originally joined Low Carb Friends back in 2003). I'm 51, married, live in Wisconsin, have 3 grown daughters (youngest graduates college in May), and 3 grandsons with 2 granddaughters on the way. Hubby is doing this with me although he's just about at his goal weight. We (re)started Jan 3rd of this year.

Yes, please!
You are a young grandmother! How fun for you.
I'm 59 and have 4 grandchildren via my 2 step-children.
My husband is a type 1 diabetic, so we eat low carb nearly all the time. I cook a lot.

Sounds like you know what you need to know.


Glad to have you and will be fun getting to know you!

Tonight's dinner: Italian "breaded" center cut chops using a 50/50 mix of ground flax seed and Parmesan cheese along with some garlic powder, parsley, salt and pepper. Seared on stovetop then baked at 325 degrees for 25 minutes. Added a slice of provolone cheese in last 3 minutes of baking. Served on bed of sautéed zoodles and topped with organic tomato and Bastille sauce. Yum!
