rothydreams asked: How long and at what temperature do you bake your sweet potato fries? Each time I try my fries range from burnt to slightly under done. Help! PS- I really enjoy your blog!
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?” The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.” “Son,” the man said,...

nourritureetfleurs: I meant to say this earlier… Shit talking is allowed, if not encouraged. (but only if it’s in a loving way). There is no reason NOT to do this (O:GH4L, r2). Like, what’s the worst that could happen? And by the way, I won round one. Like, kicked ass. I challenge someone to kick mine this round. ;) I was debating not doing this, only because I can’t really work out...
6 lbs and I'm no longer obese
It’s been over 4 years since that’s been a true. 218.7 lbs this morning. 2.7 lbs and I’ve lost 60 lbs! SIXTY! Holy crap. So many numbers. Heh Although weighing in at 2:00 am is awkward. Because there are still 4 hours before I “should” be weighing in. Tumbling at 3:30 am for the win.
Now, normally, I am a pretty even tempered person. I definitely have flare ups, but in general I can let other peoples stupidity and arrogance roll off my back…well at least not let it get to the point where I’m so angry that I get heart palpitations. But this. This was something else. Now, maybe I stepped out of line and gave too much information or didn’t present it well,...

What? Holy crap. I think that’s the most weigh I’ve lost in a week in a long ass time, let alone the lowest number I’ve...
My weight today was 221.1 lbs. Color me fucking ecstatic! SO close! I AM SOOOO close to NEVER seeing the 220’s again! Note to self: Weighing in at 2 am is bad for your self esteem since I weighed a little over 2 lbs. I guess I should wait until my food has time to digest. Damn having to wake up so early. hahaha P.P.S I really like the way I look. And that has nothing to do with the...
behearnow asked: So, I've heard you talk about the Carb limit but I must have missed that post. Can you explain it to me please?
221.5 lbs!!!! (Let’s all remember that my starting weight was 276 lbs, shall we? :-D ) My breath caught. I moved the scale. Same weight. Holy crap. I’m too excited to sleep! Less than 2 lbs and I’m in the teens! Eep! Haven’t been in the teens in over 4 years. That’s a little over 3 lbs since Saturday. Most weight I’ve lost in a week in a long ass...
Anonymous asked: Ok so this is less of a question and more of statement since I like you blog so much. AlmondBreeze anything just. plain. sucks. Big time. If you can, get your hands on some Silk PureAlmond Dark Chocolate Almond Milk. It's amazing. I know you're watching carbs (this has 23 g per serving) However, my bf is a Navy SEAL and he swears by it (so you know it has to be decent for your...
Almond Breeze Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Milk tastes like water. Water with a hint of chocolate. *shrug* so it’s like drinking water, but with a little protein, calories and fiber…which I need since I’m not meeting my calories currently (due to limiting my carbs—rawr)

Hi, remember me? Oops. Hello again. It’s been a busy… week? How long has it even been? Oh geez. Anywho. It’s been an interesting couple of days: health & diet wise. So on… Friday? Friday. I think. I talked to Alex (aka smart-health aka abandoner) about why the hell I have been gaining and losing the same 5 lbs since like….December. I gave him all my stats and...
