    Even though my craving for ice cream passed by the time I got back home, I still wanted to give the blueberry ice cream recipe a try.

    As mentioned in the tips section, I did substitute with raspberries to keep the carbs lower.

    I must say this was delicious

    The hardest part was finding the mascarpone cheese. I never heard of it before. Finally found it at Meijer. Never realized how many specialty cheeses they have, until your looking for just one

    It really was amazingly good. Since I haven't really had anything overly sweet tasting in 11 months, it was a little too sweet for me at first. But I'm looking forward to some more tonight ;)

    Got a pleasant surprise today while doing some work on the van. I needed to wear my dreaded now oversized jeans. I had to tighten my belt 7 notches from last known location, to keep my pants up :D

    I'm getting real close to attempting something I said I would not do again.
    Return to the crawl space from hell, and check out/repair (if needed) my duct work.
    I gave up on 3 prior attempts. The last time time I barely was able to get through the access point and pulled about every muscle in my body.

    But, with my thinner size, I keep asking myself...

    Not much weight change in the last 5 weeks. Been staying pretty consistent as I near my target weight. But a new low anyways. Continuing to work on flexibility and strength building exercises. Also, Body fat measurement updated.

    Congrats to those of us who are winning the battle and resisting the temptation that is Everywhere.
    Comfort food is comforting, in moderation.
    Comfort food can also make you uncomfortable... putting on your socks!

    It's been a year since my last doctors visit. Had a 6 month appointment back in April but I cancelled it. Mostly because the main reasons for the follow up had changed. Since being on a Ketogenic diet, I have got myself off all prescription medications. I no longer needed blood pressure medicine and blood sugar handling issues were well under control without any medical intervention. Which he was very hesitant at the time, to let me leave, without putting me on something for blood sugar control, but I refused. Another reason to cancel, was any lab work at that time may appear a little wacky or misleading being in active weight loss mode on a Ketogenic diet. I'll spear you the explanation why;)

    With my "Adult annual preventative visit" due, and the fact I'm paying for this service anyways, thanks to Obama care :rolleyes: I might as well use it. The visit with be covered, but any lab work will be on me with my plan. Which is ok, since I am curious how my lab tests would look now. Last time I was there, I was obese with high blood pressure and sugar control issues, so this should be a nice surprise for him. And I would be lying if I said it would not be a little self serving for myself, by showing off my accomplishments :D

    Looking to schedule appointment during the week of Halloween. At least the appointment should not be scary :JC-hysterical:

    I did come across this reference to help understand how to make sense of your cholesterol levels.
    I already knew that the total cholesterol number was pretty much useless, without understanding the ratios. Something I didn't know how to calculate. Pretty easy to do. Looked up my last test results and did the simple calculation. Another reason I want updated labs to compare results. Judging from my last labs, I'm surprised he didn't try to put me on a statin drug also :rolleyes:

    Sugar sux! Hard to find foods without it when you look at all the things that are sugar that aren't called sugar. Like going to Walmart and buying a gallon of iced tea with a huge red sticker that says "sugar free'. Thought it tasted sweet and looked at nutrition lable, it listed zero sugar but 38 carbs per serving. Scratched my head because I know tea isn't a carb. Looked at ingredients list - #1 water, #2 high fructose corn syrup

    'Evaporated cane juice' is also sugar. And there are 30 or so other names for it.

    Odd weight plateau...

    For more then a month my weight has stayed within 3 pounds as I get closer to reaching my final target. That part isn't very odd.

    What is rather interesting to me, is for the last 5 days in a row, I've been the exact same weight, and 6 of the last 7 days the same. The longest prior streak has been 3 days.

    [​IMG]

    Will be interesting to see which way this streak brakes.
