I’ve lost 4.8 pounds in the last 3 days, which brings me from 156.2 pounds on Monday… to 151.4 pounds on Thursday morning.

This is the same ~5 pounds I lost last week, and who knows how many times I’ve lost THIS five pounds. πŸ˜›

I am 1.5 pounds away from being back below 150, so that’s my goal before I leave for San Diego on Monday!

(In case you missed a few posts, I was sick for two weeks with a cruel stomach virus that threw me off track.)

I cooked again yesterday, an easy one skillet meal, and also made my easy low carb biscuits – so my food diary has some more easy meal ideas for you today! πŸ™‚

Wednesday’s Easy Low Carb Meals

This is my “low carb cereal.” This time it’s 1/4 cup daisy brand cottage cheese, 3/4 cup crushed pecans, 3 medium diced strawberries, and .35oz blueberries. (8 net carbs and 87% healthy fat)

Healthy Low Carb Foods

Berries are not technically a fruit, and are a healthy addition to your low carb diet in moderation.

This is what my “cereal” looks like once I mix it all together:

For lunch I fried the other half of the Johnsonville smoked sausage (no fillers) together with the leftover cauliflower – and added fresh mushrooms. Delicious!

Easy Low Carb Meal

I ate a little more than half of that at lunch, and then for dinner I decided to use the leftovers to make my Low Carb Biscuits.

I modified the recipe slightly (less almond meal, mostly). I used: 1/2 cup of Bob’s Red Mil Almond Meal/Flour, a 6oz bag of Kraft Finely Shredded Parmesan Cheese, 3 eggs, and 2 TBSP of real butter (melted). And then added the leftovers of course, which I chopped up a bit.

Then I just spooned them out into 11 “balls” on Parchment Paper and baked at 350 until brown and crisp on the outside, and fluffy on the inside.

They were delicious. πŸ™‚ And a great way to enjoy leftovers!

I’m so glad to have that “sick weight” back off of my body!

As you can see, I’m sticking to “real foods” for the week – nuts, berries, veggies, etc. I find that eating real food, and keeping it super simple, is the easiest way for me to lose weight.

I didn’t exercise yesterday because I was tired and had a headache. That’s the keto flu setting in after getting back on track, no doubt. πŸ˜› I feel much better today, so I’m going to do my Focus T25 Workout plus 90 reps on my Ab Carver Pro. πŸ™‚

How’s your week going – and what are you eating?

Best,

    Thank you for posting all your meals! I’ve recently started eating low carb and struggle daily with ideas for food. Your determination and posts motivate me to be a better, healthier me! I was diagnosed type 2 diabetic about 5 years ago but never changed much diet wise or exercise. After being pregnant and on insulin and then having some complications with delivering I felt horrible. Topping it off my son wasn’t able to produce enough insulin on his own and his sugars tanked minutes after he was born, we almost lost him when he turned grey and wasn’t breathing. The most horrible day of my life. All of these problems because of me not taking my diagnosis seriously and watching my weight and blood sugars. So thank you for letting me follow along on your journey.
