WELL HERE'S THE THREAD FOR YCC'ERS TO SHARE THEIR MEALS. NO MEAL PLANS UNDER 1500 CALORIES FOR FEMALES OR 1800 CALORIES FOR MALES. PERIOD!! Posts that exhibit undereating will be deleted so consider yourselves warned. That means if your meals LOOK LIKE they are less than the 1500/1800 then they should be counted explicitly and those values should appear in your post or they will be deleted.  Thanks and happy posting!

daydream - so happy to see youre back! we're pretty much in a similar situation -- i started having a lot of trouble gaining, hyperactive thyroid problems etc. and i got a little too comfortable maintaining. at first i didn't feel as though i needed to gain, thought i felt fine at this weight but it caught up with me - i'm back to feeling low on energy, randomly sad sometimes..but really - we both can get back on track! oh + those greek yogurt treats sound to die for! xo

zeb: you are gorgeous! i love your new picture :) i used to love stir frys with peanut sauce, i completely forgot about them!

emsaurus: youre off to a great start, your lunch = yum, goat cheese + smoked salmon are fantastic together!


I am super hyper right now! Instead of going to school today I went to the band UIL competition! We did really well!!! We got straight 1's in both prepared performance and sightreading! YES! Our band director was soo happy with us because at our pre-uil contest we actually had to STOP the whole piece we were playing and start over again we got so off! But we pulled ourselves together and really concentrated today! Then we went to Cici's pizza buffet afterwards for lunch! I really enjoyed myself too, I ate everything with absolutely not ED thoughts whatsoever! I had a great time with my freinds :D!

twinkle: strawberries get old after awhile because you have to bend down for so long and after awhile your back starts killing you. I completely agree. There is something about fresh seafood that can't be compared to frozen seafood. The same thing applies to fresh bread. The best fried tofu  I ever had was salted fried tofu. Delicious. Awesome job about tackling chinese food head's so yummy!

adrienne: culinary week sounds out of this worth! Way to go about the brownie and the presentation. I have never been very good at badminton..or any sport involving hand eye coordination… I suck at hand eye coordination.  

carrot: They have the maple almond butter in the squeeze pack. So I tried it awhile ago. Out of this world! I used to eat almond butter all the time but I stopped because it just really isn't as tasty as peanut butter. But, Justin's almond butter… mmm. I usually get the plain almond butter from the self-crank at whole foods. I am interested in finding a pistachio butter because I love pistachio. 

cherry: I love the color of your prom dress and the very pretty design on the front. Beautiful!

monica: Congratulations on UIL band. It's a huge important accomplishment. Not to mention you had no ED feelings which is the best thing because guess what you can actually have fun!! 

My mom consumes the cab master yogurts like it's going out of style haha.

emsaurus: I haven't tried making my own nut butters.  I know they can get pricey buying them from the store, especially if you buy the more expensive ones like cashew or hazelnut butter.  That sounds delicious though.  I've never tried walnut butter, but I've been wanting to.

zebulancherry: I actually used to really like eating breakfast; I find it helps get me going in the day!  But it's more economical for me to eat evening-heavy meals because of the all-you-can-eat dinners at my university cafeteria. 

claire: Your eats always look delicious.  Strawberry coconut milk ice cream sounds heavenly.  Is it the Larry & Luna brand?

monica: Congrats on the competition!  That sounds exciting!  And great job on the pizza lunch.  I know it's a challenge eating in front of others, especially if there are a lot of fear foods in unmeasured portions.  ED is screaming at you to restrict and isolate yourself, but it's great that you were able to completely avoid those thoughts and enjoy time with your friends :)

avboston: I'm not very good at badminton either (or most eye-hand coordination sports).  But it was the only PE class that fit into my schedule.  Even though I'm not very good at it, I really enjoy it--it's an 8:00 am class, so it helps wake me up in the morning :) 

--------------------------------------------- -----
