Day 70 Cruise to a Stall Steroid Hell and RECIPE Vanilla CREPE

Day      70               PP             178                       October 10, 2011

Daily Loss:    No gain No loss
Total Loss:    28.3 lbs
Wt. to go:      23.7 lbs

Well,  I feel like a stall since my weight swings back from 175 to 180.  Today it really is 178.  I am dealing with other side effects of the steroid withdrawal.  But that is very boring and all I know is what I can do.  Move ahead.

Yes, the day is 70 because I can not add correctly.  There is another miscalculation there.  I started this thing at 211 lbs  not 206 lbs.  But  It means I loss more pounds than it shows.  But the road ahead is unchanged.  I still have 23.7 pounds to go.

I am going to not worry so much about PP days.  I am going to include Vicki’s chocolate eggs on PP days.  (Tolerated item or not.)  The treat is too wonderful.  And I need a treat I can have on PP days.  This is my logic.  It is a lot of protein and protein low-fat, low-carb is the name of the game.  Just watch those carbs (dairy) and lots of protein.  The only protein I like well done is turkey bacon,  pork tenderloin and hard boil eggs.

I do know I love that oat bran and look forward to increasing it.

Twenty four pounds away.   I go to Florida December 17th and that is 68 days away or a little less than 10 weeks.  The best a person can expect on a diet is to lose two pounds a week.  That should be the bottom line.  If you are losing an average of 2 pounds a week you are losing at a normal rate.  Right now I am in a limbo.   A steroid hell.

Sis and I decided we were not going to try to match each other to PP or PV days.  We are going to celebrate in some fashion.  I asked her not to buy ice cream and she agreed.  We will choose a meal to indulge and eat out.  It may be our grouper sandwich or something like that.   Sis and I talked about grilling out at the state park.  (Since I am an apartment dweller I miss that so much.)  That will keep us in the protein and on the diet.  She is bringing her big kitchen aid and I will bring my ice cream maker.  Yes,  floating islands and custard ice cream ahead.  And we bring lots of SF flavorings.  We talked about ones we have not tried and I am going to do a big shipment this month.

I was looking for a treat to make and look at what I found.  A vanilla crepe recipe from Brittainy Chantel Cherry on DD Us facebook

Vanilla Crepe recipe
Take 1 TBS oat bran, 1 TBS sweetener, 1 TBS yogurt, 1 egg, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and mix together in a bowl.
Place in cake pan (spray the pan) and spread out thin. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Take out and sprinkle a little sweetener on top and toss under the broiler for 2-3 minutes (watch closely) Omg sooo good! Make sure the corners crisp a little and get golden brown under the broiler 🙂

Kath’s variation:   Fry on top of stove.  Make double recipe using one egg and 3 tablespoons of egg white.  Add flavorings eg. cinnamon, cocoa with more splenda.  I use lots of sweetener.   I make small pancakes.  And eat slowly.  I think you could make and take with you.  Easier and more filling than the gallette.

This is very good.  Next time I will make on aluminum foil.  Addresses the sweetness and is void of tolerated except for vanilla which needs replacing so it can be a PP day delight.   Thank you Brittainy
