Mike: Mystie is beautiful! I think laying by the pool sounded like an excellent plan, I hope it was awesome! Great job on your goals as well!
almeeker: That totally isn't too shallow. I have to say that I get some pleasure from Facebook, and seeing girls that used to be smaller than me being about the same size as me now - the ones who used to call me fat in high school, you know the girls
So if you're shallow I'm on the S.S. Shallow right there with you. Anything that's motivating is good!
Cassie: Man, I wish I lived closer too! I love trim and detail work like that (I'm no artist like almeeker, but I'll paint your widowsills any day!)

Final check-in! What sticks out to me is the protein. I really, really need to make a concerted effort on that. It tells me that I'm still not 100% at estimating the protein content of some foods. Usually, my more low-protein days are high-fat days, I've noticed. That's usually due to sauces or sides. I think that tells me: Less sides and more main dish, woman!
Also -- I managed to hit my 7,000 deficit after all!! Go me!
