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. 😛
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! 🙂
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)
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!
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.
Here’s the original recipe: Low Carb Biscuit Recipe
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. 🙂 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. 😛 I feel much better today, so I’m going to do my Focus T25 Workout plus 90 reps on my Ab Carver Pro. 🙂
