    what a beautiful foto. i am sure it tasted as good as it looks. it is like the MONA LISA of food "porn". yesterday, i had left quite a few phone messages for a friend to call me, wishing him a happy birthday (it was his birthday). finally, he DID call. but it was not him, but his twin, who sounded exactly the same. my friend died in his sleep on his birthday. he was 77 years old when he was on this side of the curtain. after hurricane SANDY, he moved to NJ, and REFUSED to come to NYC, even for a visit. so when I get home, I will be playing specific musical works to which he introduced me. we also were part of a METOPERA standing room RAT PACK (there were 4 of us.). we all took the same train from Bklyn to Lincoln Center, and back again to Bklyn. 2 of us have been gone a long while already. Bruce was the 3rd. Now it is just me that is left. Every day, find some joy in your lives, in spite of all the problems we encounter on a daily basis. I DO. Music, reading, and staying on plan are examples of such joy for me. I fell asleep before my evening meal. I am most certainly going to enjoy my DINER meal, which, I expect will be the pork chops, the thickest in
    bklyn in my experience.. as always, I will give my potato to my friend. I will combine the diner salad with the greens I have in the fridge. tomorrow, when I go to SHOPRITE, I will buy the smallest chunk of parmigiano reggiano for grating. I will convert the salad in my house to a CAESAR salad for tomorrow. of course, there will be enough for a whole week. Tony, you know I wanna hear all the juicy details about your ribs. expect a phone call from me this week. I will call on my land phone. my cell is past its prime. as always, SC, SH, ABTG, SOP.

    Sorry to hear about your friend FF!

    Tony, I'm not a rib fan but those do look pretty good.

    I can't get motivated today, I have a headache that won't quit. I'm tempted to work from home.

    Chris, i feel your pain. work from home, if you can. i almost always get in the mood...for working... after a big caffeine jolt. i have lots of downsizing to do. ergo, i will have a rather large Joe with lots of ice. i decided to give my friend the diner salad, as i am not going home directly. i am going to SHOPRITE after the diner. and, i will consume BOTH pork chops, each "baptized" with 1/2 tsp unsweetened applesauce. that plus a cup of chicken broth, and a portion of cooked escarole (virtually 100% fiber).

    my friend had to cancel owing to last minute shopping for his vacation. i got a very small pkge of Parmeggiano Reggiano consisting of 5 small bite size pieces, but I will be able to grate one w/o interfering with the others .AND, it is the real deal, from Italy, obeying the regulations. each one is 1 oz. Now, Lidia Bastianich will not put the MALOCCHIO on me. there were 3 or 4 varieties of "classic"
    CAESAR dressing. I got the one with 1 gr carbs per portion (2 T)...I only need 1 T for the salad portion I will consume. I have not eaten anything today, except 3 pieces of pork rinds, about 7 hours ago. I better put the cheese in the fridge. later, HEWMONS! SC, SH, ABTG. SOP. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

    Good morning! Today makes 2 years since I came to my senses and restarted low carb. Today marks 102# gone. My best was 115, I think, I've had a few slips but try to stay on plan. I'd still like to lose 50 more, at least, but it's going slow since I refuse to exercise!

    I also decided this week to find another job. I thought long and hard, but the con's outweigh the pro's, and the money sucks. So I've tossed my resume out to a few places, would love to hear back from one. I'm definitely not going to quit my current job, can't afford that!

    Stillman again today, this makes day #3, gonna try my best to last through it.

    Have a great day.
    Chris

    ABI, I WILL NEVER DO THAT! after the delivery man delivered the groceries, I consumed turkey wing #2. even better than #1. however large it was, though, it was big boned, but not much meat...very much like my Ferenghi lobes, before I was surgically altered to resemble HEWMONS. later on, after my late evening catnap, I finished off my HN salami, about 8 oz. I also had 1/6 of an ATKINS bar. total carbs pour cette jour(7/11/18) was 0.5 grams. this game is so much fun to play! today's carbs will be limited to my Caesar salad. feliz cumpleanos to Bruni, my earth sis-in-law, and FELICEM NATALEM AD G. IVLIVM CAESAREM. oh, among yesterdays gleanings at SHOPRITE, I got some B12 1000 mcg or mg each. in addition to the b complex, I will be taking 2 of the b12 primarily for energy support, although it has other applications.

    Best of fortune Chris, in the job hunting. I so admire your weight loss accomplishments. what concerns me is that you and others are TRYING to stay on plan. I gave up TRYING. I just tie the feedbag on, and step up to the trough, and EAT, EAT, EAT. of course, I stop when I cease being hungry, and I watch my carbs down to the molecular level. I post in exhaustive detail what I consume on a daily basis. no DIETING . now, as regards exercise, Chris, I am IN COMPLETE AGREEMENT with you. I ABOMINATE EXERCISE! even when I was physically able to do it, except for walking, I never succeeded. I joined a gym 3 times. and went 5 times a week for at least a month. NO CHANGE in measurements, except, my wallet got thinner. someday, if I can walk on my own again, I shall join a dance class, where I can learn ballroom, ethnic, and square dancing. dancing is NOT exercise, it is FUN. oh, that gives me an idea for a reality tv show. I can call it "Dancing with the SCARS"!!! SC, SH, ABTG, SOP. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

    Tony, how is your son's ankle? I hope nothing too serious. there have been so many things going on in the last few days in my own personal "show about nothing". I expect I will be able to phone this weekend. I am still salivating thinking of those ribs. I will be reheating rib portion #2, with some WF bbq hickory flavor sauce. that will be this evening. along with the Caesar salad. one day, Caesar, in the next world was strolling along, when he heard the sound of a piano. he walked in the direction of the music, and saw Brutus taking piano lessons from Frederic Chopin. so he said to Brutus: ETUDE, BRUTE?

    i now have 2 triple cheese whoppers on the premises, one of which I will consume this evening on 1 slice of lc toast, 1/2 tsp of CCK, and a packet of REAL mayonnaise. each whopper has only 1 slice of cheese as per my instructions. with that, I will have a small amount of Caesar salad. the 2nd whopper I will consume after the Sat. afternoon opera broadcast. earlier today, I consumed one of the roast chicken portions. I have 1 more scheduled for tomorrow. barring any food changes, my total carbs hoc diem will be 3 grams. I need to go back to SHOPRITE, to get some Almond Breeze unsweetened milk. then, when I have cleared a space for the MAGIC BULLET blender, I will finally be able to make the low carb ice cream. progress is slow, but progress all the same.
