Thank you. We are coping as best we can.

I am mostly high protein too or try to be. It's hard sometimes as I'm not a huge meat lover. I like it but get tired of it. I still eat lots of veggies and fruits too.

I tried a couple of Quest Bars and didn't like the ones I tried but it was not either one of those and I wonder if the ones I bought were stale.

emoticon I haven't been around for a bit, so sorry to hear about Squeaker. It is so hard to lose a pet.
I've been doing a lot of volunteer work this summer, it has been rewarding and also making me crazy! Been trying to do more of a protein plan, but I so miss my veggies and fruit. I may come back to SB for another round.
I found QuestBar protein bars and they are high protein(20 gm), high fiber(18-19 gm), gluten free and only 1 gm of sugar, 170 calories. Their fiber is prebiotic, so it feeds the good bacteria in your gut and intestines. Carbs are 24 gm, but when you subtract the fiber, they drop to 5-7 gm. They are a bit pricey but satisfying. I've tried the chocolate brownie and apple pie bars and they are delicious. emoticon .

Thanks. I am keeping busy today. It helps.

I hope your experiment works. I'm sure you realize it is rather risky because concuming sugar is what causes further cravings of sugar by making your blood sugar unstable. Good luck.

I'm so sorry you lost your pet. I know you will mourn for such a sweet pet. (((gentle hugs)))

I am purposely going to cheat on phase 1 The intention is to cut out our cravings for sweets I do not get them except for chocolate after a big meal for whatever reason. I will follow the rules with the exception that I am allowing myself fruit. I already have it in my head that by eating fruit I have not failed That would normally throw me into a tailspin and I'd throw in the towel.

The exception may be next Monday. it will be my 23rd wedding anniversary. I am mentally preparing for that, too, so I can hop right back on the plan the following day.

have a healthy day, team! emoticon

Challenging myself to reach my 2015 goals while there is still time.

Friday Squeaker was coming to the front of the cage and was eating her breakfast without having to be pushed. I called the vet as she was drooling a lot again. The vet finally got back to me at 3:45 and wanted me to get a salt block for her. I hadn't been leaving her alone since she has been sick but she had finally gone to sleep so I called my hubby and told him I needed to go get it. I left at 4 and knew he would be leaving work at 4:30 so she would not be alone long. By the time he got home she had relapsed. She went down hill really quickly. We were up during the night checking on her. Saturday morning when we got up, she could hardly raise her head. My hubby told her she was pretty and he loved her and he petted her. She took her last breath. We went to his work and he started her casket. He picked out some purple fabric for a lining. We may bury her today or tomorrow if we can.We will miss our little girl. Today was her birthday. Her dad died on it a year ago. We lost Baxter in October and Bun in March. We are exhausted and miserable.

Good morning all! Morticia I am soo sorry about your sick pets,prayers they'll do well! I work in the 24 hour Pet ER so I've seen some bad things and the pets better and leaving the hospital!! I think things may have calmed down here so I can do some me time. I've been grooming pets for 30 years and am a licensed hairdresser so my hands have really taken a beating, lots of sx's,both carpal tunnel,trigger finger etc. Hand Surgeon told me years ago to stop grooming, I didn't listen and now I have really bad tendonitis in R hand. So no grooming this week,and I think it's time to stop! A scary thought as the money is good,but I still have a full time and a part time job! I'm definitely getting too old to work this hard anyway!! LOL!!
I'm off to work tonight,day 1 phase 1 looking forward to feeling better! Have a great day all! Diane

Porkie is still in recovery - won't eat on his own but he is not resistant to being fed. Squeaker developed a post op ileus on Tuesday. We were able to get her into a vet 50 miles away quickly yesterday. Hubby left work just as his boss was taken away sick in an ambulance. Squeaker was started on a new digestive med. She had a rough evening and was in a lot of pain, writhing, and bloated but she was content to sleep on my leg and if not there she wanted my foot on her belly. Hubby was in tears but I wouldn't let him give up and we forced her to eat. I was so tired I passed out at 8 P.M. She passed a lot of bloated stools in the night which is good. We have seen some positive signs but her condition is still guarded. We are worn out but at least have some hope now. We have tons of meds to give and lots of feedings now.

Things are not going well here. Porkie is doing okay but Squeaker is having major problems and may not make it.

Thanks! The vet had us meet him at 6:30P.M. last night at the animal hospital. Over 2 hour drive there and, with traffic, we always leave leave an extra hour leeway. They both needed surgery. It took over 2 hours for the surgeries and we were on our way. Got home home before 11 P.M. Squeaker seems a little better and Porkie is no worse than he was. We will be able to tell more in a few days. We are having to give both of them meds twice a day and are syringe feeding them 3 to 4 times a day.

Hubby and I were worn out, stressed out, sleep deprived, have G.I. problems, and I have asthma, etc. All 4 of our chinchillas refused to eat this morning and my hubby got really upset and was very negative. I had to prod him to help me force-feed Porkie and Squeaker before he went to work. Chinchillas can die if they don't eat for 12 hours. Porkie and Squeaker did okay once they saw they were going to have to eat. He got some food down Blocker plus all of their meds and I got Runtster to eat. It will be worse after surgery but at least the vet is going to try to help us. We will manage.

I take extra vitamin c every day as I used to be sick all the time.

The pets are still having problems but we finally reached our vet and he is going to try to see them soon when he can. He started an new job and only works as a vet part time.

I think I had a mild summer cold recently or some allergies. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

Today is Porkie's last dose of antibiotics. I hope he is okay off of it. Squeaker had a bad day yesterday and I spent the day taking care of her. Hopefully she will be better today.

Thanks. Hubby seems okay. I'm still having problems. Porkie was actually hungry this morning. Squeaker was drier, more alert, and hungry too but she wakes up from sleeping and is soaked. I hope the vet gets back to us.

I'm a former Critical Care nurse and I like peace and quiet. I tend to get too stressed with too much info. I seldom use the phone except on business. I am limiting my online time too.

Oatmeal is not allowed in phase one. Phase one is 2 weeks unless you have a large amount of weight to lose. A serving of slow cooking oats are allowed in phase 2 - steel cut oats are your best choice. Check your product for serving size. Instant oatmeal is not allowed - it's not low glycemic. Some of us, like me, are triggered by oats and develop cravings, stall, or gain weight so you need to monitor every starch or sugar you add in phase 1.5 or 2.

Nonfat Greek yogurt is allowed in phase one. In phase 2 you can add 4 ounces of artificially sweetened low fat or nonfat yogurts that don't have high fructose corn syrup.

If you are starting over you need to read the sticky threads again to refresh your memory. Info on doing a phase 1.5 which works best for many of us is included there. Good luck.

Ok I know that by now I should know more than I do but I want to start over for so many reasons so my question are: is oatmeal allowed on any phase?? is yogurt allowed on any phase??? I skimmed over the list Kirae made for phase 1 don;t remember seeing these but like I said I did a quick scan. Thanks.

Morticia, are you on Hughes Net? I had the same satellite outage. I remember when we didn't have internet and thought we were doing fine. Now, we're addicted. Thank goodness for a smart phone! Since we're headed for the weekend, have a great weekend, everyone.

We had no internet from Tuesday afternoon until this morning due to a satellite outage.

I was sick yesterday and am still taking care of a sick pet.

That is so cool about getting to meet a new family member. Our tiny family has come to a screeching halt.

I hope your check up is good!

We have a high heat index today of 105. I have a lot of work to do so I need to get it done early.

Sounds like a great boyfriend. Especially Cracker Barrel and a new laptop. LOL.

Good morning all! Today is a new day and going to get out the SB book and re read it! I made a nice batch of turkey and bean chili which I will have over sautéed kale ,spinach and garlic for a few nights dinners as I'm working the next 7 nights!
I don't like the ricotta "desserts" SB recommends any suggestions? For an afternoon snack I usually have hummus with celery and pepper strips,does that sound alright? Diane

We were awakened at 5 A.M. with a major power outage and could not get back to sleep. Yesterday was a Murphy's Law day. Hopefully today won't be the same.

That would be a bummer. My hubby and I get up every day at 6:20 so on the weekend he insists on sleeping in. I don't recommend it but he does need the sleep. He gets less than I do.

Sounds great. I hope you enjoy your time off!

It is still raining here and is going to get really hot in the next few days - I dread it. The chinchillas are still in recovery. Doing better in some ways but they are still drooling.

I love the smell of fresh bread. I don't have hardly any leftovers left except some steak and some baked beans so I should be back on plan today fairly well. I will have a busy Monday like always though. Lots of work!!

Hubby and I commented the other night that this is the best year for lightening bugs that we have seen in years. We have tons of them. It is almost like it was when we were kids.

had a great time last night at my boyfriends brother & sister-in-laws farm house, John's grandaughter who turned 7 in June wanted to find & catch some lightning bugs, it proved harder than we thought and running around the backyard in the dark was real interesting especially when we could smell a skunk.we still had fun with the family.
