Just looking at that piece of deliciousness I regained 10 lbs of the 70 lbs that I lost in the last 11 months. :confused:

After I retired I slowly went from 167 to 237 in 8 years. I'm back to 167 so I'll increase my intake back to normal with care. Damn I feel better. :D

Congratulations! That is not an easy task. :punkrocke

It damn sure wasn't easy. 11 month's of barely eating enough to survive. Blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, oxygen etc all in really good shape.

Good for you. I have COPD so exercise is really a hard thing for me. I really don't want to get tied to an oxygen tank. I guess starving myself is the solution. :(

got to eat sticks and bones as I call it. Celery and peanut butter, carrots raw, both go good dipped in cream cheese, plenty of meat, fish, all of that pretty much zero carbs if you lay off the barbecue sauce or deep frying, eggs are zero carbs and cheese, whipped cream is real low carb for sweet tooth and mixed with cream cheese is a good dip. Plenty of stuff out there really, lots of nuts are low, strawberries and whipped cream is real low, most fruits are pretty high. Don't pay attention to the B.S. on the front label, look on the back for total carbs and serving size. Sometimes "light" has more calories(carbs) than the regular.

A little off topic but:

Funny, I planted the Super Sweet-100 less than a week ago and it has already grown 2 inches. These are the kind that can get to 9 feet tall at full maturation. I suppose I need to strategize on support issues since even my long stakes only go up about ½ that height.

On the positive side – it looks like this is a good one and SS-100s should really be called SS-1000s, a good one can do amazing things when it comes to cherry tomato production.
