New Cookbook?   :-\ Is this different from the one with the CD? The one I just  ordered this morning?

Have you ever made tuna patties... I didn't have any salmon last night so i made them with tuna. Delish!
I am curious though, about how you used to use flour in them. I have always used cracker crumbs before FTS, where now i substitute pork rinds. Oh and by the by, my husband could not even tell the difference (pork rinds versus crackers- we have made tuna patties often when out of salmon)

Umpa, saying a prayer for you and your family.

General Discussion / Re: I need to know how to make perfect boiled eggs

I had to laugh when I saw this post! My husband and I have shared many a conversation over this very subject! I have heard almost every one of the offered suggestions...the pressure cooker one is new to me and when i think about how large my cooker is and compare the number of eggs I would want boiled, i have to giggle!  :D
I was surprised to read Doug's post about using fresh eggs. All my cooking life, I have been told that the older eggs peel so much better. And in my personal experience, this has often proven to be true. I just boiled three eggs the other evening to make deviled eggs for supper. I grabbed the oldest eggs in the fridge, filled my pan full of water, gently placed the eggs in the pan, sprinkled a bit of salt in the pan, covered the pan with the lid, turned the dial to 9 -the highest heating on my stove top, and then sat down at the computer, logged in the FTS forum, read several recipes, tuned in to the sounds of the kitchen and heard that the water was boiling. I got up, turned the dial off. Since it is an electric stove, it continues to cook for a while longer, so I left the pan on the burner, lid still on. Then after reading several more posts in the forum...and playing a  computer game, I then put the pan in the sink, running cold water over the hot water until the hot water in the pan was all displaced by the cold. Then I began peeling. A friend had shared a peeling tip with me this past summer- crack the ends, then rub the egg between your palms then peel. Works like a charm. Three lovely boiled eggs appeared.

I agree with the publicity stunt thought. Just another way to pump up his business as a fitness trainer. I also agree with jen1975...his doing this  wont be as effective for the simple fact that he hasn't lived his life -his FULL life- as an obese person who has had to deal with the cruelty of the world, the impatience and lack of understanding  offered by some  and the self doubt that can be all consuming.

What kind of bread did you use? I haven't been able to find any with really low carbs.

Or did you make this using the OMM recipe?

OH this sounds delicious! I can't wait to try it. I love the versatility of it too. Using the jello means lots of different flavors are available.

Once again, mouseissue and skychant , your words of  encouragement and wisdom, lift me !  ;D
I am happy to say that I have already reached a small goal, using the article of clothing as a reminder of why I am making the changes. In addition, I have received several compliments, so my change is noticeable to others. I sometimes get so overwhelmed with the large amount that I have to lose, that I fail to recognize the progress I am making. This week has been very good for me, even under times of stress.
Some of what has also helped is the joy that I experience when i receive the email notice that there is a reply to this thread! Seeing your responses keeps me in line and on track! Thank you Doug and Umpa for this forum and thank you to the posters that care and share!   ;D

Yesterday when very well and today is off to a great start. I am faced with an evening meal out (fundraiser for my daughter's school), but  I have reviewed the menu and believe I can make very healthy low carb choices.

I keep using the subject title as self encouragement...Tomorrow is a new day! A day in which I can be successful. A day in which I can begin again if need be; a day to get back on the right track.
Taking the time to be prepared has always been my challenge. I am a very busy working mom. I volunteer with many different groups. I often use the excuse of "I don't have the time" to explain why I couldn't be effective and successful. After a long hard self evaluation, I have come to realize that if I don't make the necessary changes now, I really won't have the time...I'll soon be dead!  and I do not want that! So I am making and taking the time to be in charge of my eating habits, thanks to the support of  this forum!

Skychant, i am feeling the same way! I'm 43, been obese most of my adult life and never truly happy with myself.  I am thankful to know that there are others out there like myself and to hear that you are being successful just proves to me that I can be too.  Congratulations on your continued success.

"It just takes 'thinking' and planning it all the time to be successful I think and when I get sidetracked, by company, or my other interest, hobbies etc, than look out that is when I mess up." Can't see who posted this comment, but this is exactly what happens to me. I know I need to develop new habits, it is my biggest challenge.  :-\
