    0.6 pound loss!

    That leaves me 0.2 pounds over my LIW. I can handle that sort of stabilization forever!

    I LOVE my cast iron pans. I also love my stainless pans. You can cook ANYTHING in them, and even if it sticks, it comes clean with ease. It's nice to be able to use an SOS pad and not worry about destroying a ridiculously expensive piece of cookware.

    Congrats on the continued stabilization. That's got to feel pretty awesome!

    Cast iron last forever, even if using it to deflect bullets from terrorist attacks. With the weight of them it is no wonder why all mothers of that generation are ridiculously strong, though it does remove the comical "you're home late so I'll hit you with a frying pan" lightness and replace it with images of getting your head caved in. It's the original non-stick surface (if seasoned properly), can go in the oven, and provides you with little bits of the iron you need in your diet.

    All of this cheaper than any pan that you're likely to find. Think I got mine for around $20.00 and it will outlive 12 generations if properly taken care of.

    Polytetrafluoroethylene or "Teflon" as it's most widely known, releases toxic gases as it breaks down at high temperatures, which are especially lethal to birds and generally only make humans sick with something akin to the flu. It's a coating (as opposed to a pan made from one substance, seriously put it on a jet engine, it doesn't care) so it peels off in time, and those little pieces of man-made coating are ingested by your family.

    Just like mercury in fish, I personally don't accept a negligible amount of poison if I can help it and have other options. I'm also tired of our throw away society and want to be part of the solution and go old school

    Good pans are worth every penny. I have had the All Clad brushed stainless set for 10 years now and they still look new. I bought a new Myabi chefs knife that I am also in love with.

    Giving up microwaves seems to be all the rage right now...going to have to pass on that one. I've spent so many years with my face 2" from the microwave thinking my item would cook faster if I watch it I'm a lost cause by now.

    I went and hiked Camelback Mountain this morning which is a beautiful hike/climb near my house. Started when it was dark out and put a thermos of coffee and tupperwear of fage in my backpack to enjoy when I reached the top which was just as the sun was sweeping over the valley. It was gorgeous....but now my legs are on absolute FIRE.

    I am all about the good pans and knives. I go to a local knife store and drool about once a month. Those suckers are spendy! I'm hoping for a few new ones for Mother's Day...

    I have to laugh about the microwave - instant gratification generation!

    I hiked Camelback Mountain a few years ago when the company I worked for was based in Tempe. I wasn't lucky enough to enjoy it at sunrise, but it is still quite spectacular. Glad you enjoyed your morning!

    My 16 year old daughter is taking a health class this semester. Right now, they are on nutrition, which now that I have learned a lot, I'm not sure I want the school teaching her, but whatever. I'll try to temper whatever they are teaching her with what I have and continue to learn. She is keeping a food log right now, which I think is a good idea. Showed her myfitnesspal, and she's all over it since she can just start the diary and store it there.

    During this course, they will weigh each student. According to some of her friends who have already taken the class, they don't do this in private - they do it in front of the whole class! Does this seem strange to anyone else? I mean, for her, I'm not worried - she is thin as a rail at 5'6" 120, but she has some friends who are about my size, and while I don't consider myself big, I did when I was in high school. Especially if I found out one of my friends weighed 20lbs less than I did! I honestly wonder what these people are thinking sometimes... In a society rampant with eating disorders, this really concerns me.

    The one I got was the Miyabi 5000S Gyutoh....a knife shop by my house had it for $99 which is pretty good as i'd usually seen it in the $150 range. I had a store credit for $50 (and who doesn't view store credit as new money even though it's money I already spent) so it wasn't too bad. Next step is I'd like to take a knife skills class so I can stop spending so much on band-aids.

    My daughter is taking a nutrition class also and she was amazed at some of the answers to her test that I know. I told her that I had studied all the wrong ways to do things for years so of course I knew the "right" school answers. I then told her that we would re-teach her when she is home this summer.

    I agree that weighing these teenagers in front of a room of their peers is simply setting some up to diet incorrectly and damage their bodies and minds.

    I haven't posted in a few days but have been tryng to read as often as possible. I am just really enjoying R2P4 and trying to decide if/when I might start R3. I was stable in P3 and have lost a couple of pounds in P4 since I increased my Zumba to 4 hours per week. I love HCG and this forum.

    Life looks so different now that I can eat "my" food again..

    Lunch consists of:
    - mineral water
    - salad (romaine lettuce, avocado oil, cracked black pepper, white wine vinegar, zucchini, feta cheese, spinach leaves, strawberries, almond nuts, pumpkin seeds)
    - water

    I'm having some hey fevers. The weather here is like summer. What happened to spring???
    I just hope we don't get a frost after this so it can kill all the buds.

    Hope you're all doing great

    EEEK! I know at 16 I did weigh more than I do now and I hated changing in the locker room. I would have died on the spot if they made me weigh in infront of everyone... guys included! That would have traumatized me for life. I know guys are just as bad with eating disorders or worse since they can pull it off without being suspected. Oh as a parent I would have my butt down there in the Dean's office having a fit. That is horrible!
