look at my sunday graph. it is a hypothetical of what some of my april eating was like. it includes BP coffee during the day. supper is s 1 cup serving of ground beef stolen from the wife's beef taco supper. i add 2 oz of cheese then flavor it with calorie empty sauces like dijon and frank's hot sauce. then later on...and this is where I get dumb....I tear through a bag of pork rinds and 500g of 14% sour cream.

you know, if I showed more restraint on the pork rinds and sour cream, i could get that sort of day working well for me. i think.

My weekend starts today. I promise to track my meals and no cheats except 1 modest slice of birthday cake on sunday.

And I promise to actually post macros and stuff. Man, for some reason, this measurement stuff is harshing my buzz!

I weighed in 4 times this week.

I personally don't trust the bathroom scale until I see several weeks worth of numbers that are trending low.

With that said, everything seems to be in good order. I was as much as 5 lbs below my starting weight, and now I'm 1.5 lbs below. I'm looking forward to seeing my trending grow for a few weeks. If it does, then I'll get excited.

Okay, I buckled down yesterday and measured and calculated:

Fat: 160g
Protein: 98g
Carbs: 26g

All of those are close to and under my target numbers (70% fat/25% protein/5% carbs).

Or so I thought. It occurred to me at some point that my target numbers were for a bigger me and that, down 50 pounds from when I started this, I probably don't need to take in as much as I am, which may be why my weight loss is stalling. So I'll recalculate the target numbers and see what has to change.

The other odd thing is that I felt like I had the "keto flu" yesterday. I will admit I've been a bit casual about carb intake -- not much, but when you take in so few, it doesn't take many to throw things out of whack.

So maybe I just pulled myself out of ketosis and am returning. Or that stuffy nose of mine the last couple of days indicates something else (as does my FBG for the same period) and it's not "keto flu" but something else. Keeping an eye on that, too.

itisteve, those macros sound awesome. I'm a bit nervouis to check mine.

Since the last time i posted, i havent been tracking my macros on an app. but i havent snacked, not even once. 3 meals per day. no snacks.

im confident that my breakfasts and lunches are on track. And my supper is pretty good now that i'm not snacking after supper.

my leg is doing really good again. its in a position to see it get better than ever...this is a big deal for me, managing or preventing my DVT in my legs is my long term approach to preventing another PE.

if the day ever comes where my legs have no swelling, i will post a victory dance for y'all to see. lol

Ooh, not a great day nutritionally:

Fat: 142g
Protein: 82g
Carbs: 38g (done in by hidden carbs in the guacamole that came with the taco salad)

Tomorrow is another day...

Those sneaky hidden carbs! I would have thought guacamole was safe from them--how did they sneak into it? And yes, tomorrow is another day is good to remember! One day will not derail you.

Thanks, etherea!

I suspect the carbs were some sort of binder used to keep the guacamole together and at a certain consistency. This was a fast-food Mexican restaurant (not of my choice) at which I joined friends I had not seen for quite a while. The company was great and fun but the food was ... let's just say that by the time I'd finished eating my taco salad I wished I'd eaten "real" food. Yeesh...

This past weekend I've been at a friend's cabin, so menu choices were borderline iffy and hard to measure, so I didn't even track macros. But today is another day...
