    Had a great kayaking trip today where we explored about 11-12 miles of the Rhode River, just south of Annapolis, MD.

    I have been on the Keto diet for about 5 weeks. So no bread, potatoes, pasta or rice.
    Since I haven't had a cheat day yet. I went to McDonald's after my therapy. :)

    Hehehe...does the Keto diet allow a cheat day once in awhile? In an emergency? If it does they have the right idea.

    Are pictures back? Also is there a way to see recent post on the website? When I was using the app I was always on « recent posts » now theres just new posts which makes posts disapear once you’ve seen them.

    After you've read all the "new posts," you can ask again for "new posts" and it will say, "You have no unread posts. You may view all recent posts instead." You can then click on "recent posts" in that sentence and it will show all the posts over the past few days.

    My blood sugars are a lot lower. I don't know if I have wait loss. I am trying not to be a scale watcher. I want to physically see changes.
    Since my start weight was 365lbs. I think it will take awhile to see some changes. A 20lb weight loss would not change my appearance. :)

    Yes! I'm quite the carnivore, you can take my sweets but don't touch my meets.
    Bacon goes pretty good with everything. Mmm a good steak is wonderful.

    Nice job! (and thanks for sharing. I love cupcakes!!)

    That's good. Checking too often and not seeing the results you hoped for makes you lose interest in keeping up with the diet. Lower blood sugar is a GOOD thing!!
